It’s hard to make a flight attendant uniform look good. But Aussie airline Qantas figured out a way to do it: The company tapped Victoria’s Secret Angel (yes, she still works for them) Miranda Kerr to model its new uniforms.
Kerr, a brand ambassador for Qantas, opened a runway show in Sydney to showcase the new uniforms, which were designed by Paris-based Australian designer Martin Grant. The uniforms feature orange and hot pink color blocking on a simple black sheath style dress. (Worn with pantyhose and sensible pumps, of course.) Cate Blanchett, a fellow Aussie, sat front row at the show. No word on whether or not Kerr offered her a gin and tonic and a pillow.
While in her native Australia, Kerr addressed some of those rumors about her career and allegedly being difficult to work with. “I’m sure anyone that has worked with me would agree that it’s not true,” Kerr told the Sydney Morning Herald. So why is she no longer in a contract deal with Victoria’s Secret?
Turns out she’s been thinking about tweaking her career since son Flynn was born. “It’s really important I give 100 per cent to my clients and I have to be careful to make strategic long-term decisions with my personal and business interests,” the about-to-turn-30 Kerr said. “I’ve reached a point in my career where I’m developing my own opportunities that are really reflective of my passions.” Those include releasing a second book, moving to New York for a bit (hub Orlando Bloom is starring in Romeo and Juliet on Broadway), and focusing on her organic skin care line, Kora, which she hopes will launch ecommerce on Net-a-Porter’s new beauty arm in May.
