Miranda Kerr Walks For Balenciaga

Considering her girl next door accessibility, movie star love interests and sun kissed bikini body, Miranda Kerr is a logical ambassador for commercial giants such as Victoria’s Secret and David Jones – or brands that covet a model’s commercial appeal above all else.

And though the shoots with Kerr perched on fluorescent tubes and branches will never outnumber the shoots with Kerr in swimwear or lingerie, the Aussie model showed her high-fashion versatility by walking for Balenciaga at Paris Fashion Week. In a rare Fashion Week appearance an almost unrecognizable Kerr sported a middle part and futuristic eye makeup in her only show of the SS2010 season.

Speaking with models.com Kerr explained how the unlikely casting came to be: “It was a total unexpected surprise when I was requested to meet with Nicolas and Marie Amelie for the runway casting. I wasn’t planning on doing any shows and had confirmed booking with Victoria’s Secret everyday. They were so kind to move things around so as I could make it to Paris for the fitting and the show.”
