Miranda Kerr’s horsey Harper’s cover

Miranda Kerr cover’s Harper’s Bazaar August 2012 working a timeless trend – equestrain chic! From Alaia to Hermes, the model showcases a wide array of “Horsey” looks in an eight page shoot within, photographed by Giampaolo Sgura. Interestingly, the photoshoot took place on the former estate of Mike Tyson. 

Harper’s Bazaar sat down with Miranda Kerr to discuss singing, snapping back into shape and shows! (Issue goes on sale from today)

Interview Highlights:

On rumours of a singing career:

“I love to sing, and I’ve recorded a few covers and originals with friends, but I haven’t written any songs.”

On feeling pressure to snap back into shape after the birth of her son Flynn:

didn’t feel pressure to snap back into shape. My priority was just
having my son and breastfeeding, which was something I really wanted to
and it came easily. I’m actually still making milk now but, you know,
he’s got teeth…”

On plans to have more children:

think probably, yes. Having a child is the most incredible experience.
What’s surprised me most is just how incredible the bond is between you
and your child. To watch him grow and evolve every day is really
inspiring. [ My perfect day is] to wake up to the sound of my son saying
‘Mama, mama!’ It’s the best sound ever. Then I just love to get him out
of bed and he can jump into bed with us, and we
have cuddle time.”

On wanting to give birth naturally:

had made a decision that I wanted to do it [naturally]. I had been
watching all these baby-bonding videos, and [without epidural] when the
comes out it goes straight onto the breast. Then they showed ones right
after the epidural, and that didn’t happen. The baby was a little bit
drugged up, and I was like ‘Well, I don’t want that.’ I wanted to give
him the best possible start in life I could.”

On not wanting Orlando to watch her catwalk shows:

never really want Orlando to be there [in the audience of a show] because it makes me nervous. But last year, he was like, ‘You have no
I’m coming’. And the one time he was attending the show, my shoe decided
to fall off.”
