We got a feeling Orlando Bloom has a hard time keeping up with this woman!!!
Former Victoria’s Secret banger and mega-supermodel Miranda Kerr is profiled in a new Net-A-Porter story where she talks about retiring from being one of the faces of the famous underwear brand, being targeted by the Hollywood bling ring and how she balances her huge career with a happy marriage — and we really wanted to share her philosophy.
Check out this quote about how she approaches marriage:
“I am quite dominant in my career, so what really works for me when I come home, is to relax more into the feminine side. If you’re really an alpha female, you don’t allow [your partner] to have the space to feel like the man in the relationship. Maybe I am too traditional, but men feel important when you ask for their help, instead of thinking you can do it all on your own.” In a more candid mode, she adds: “My mistake in my relationships has been to feel that I can do it all on my own: I don’t need a man. That is definitely a mistake. Women generally want to feel loved and appreciated. It’s something that I am working on every day, trust me! It’s a challenge for me to do that.”
Do you think Miranda is on to something? Or is it wrong for a woman who is a leader in her industry to subdue her nature in order to put her man at ease?

There is no truth to any of it, as she explains: “Ed [Razek, who has been casting the models for 15 years] and I are really good friends, and we both decided it was impractical for me to continue. I have such fond memories of working
Kerr is healthily philosophical about it all. “Now that I am a mother and have my own business, it is a good time. I am ready. And now,” she adds with a beaming smile, revealing those famous dimples, “here I am!”
