These days, you'd be hard pressed to open a magazine, click through a website, walk past a store, watch television, take public transportation or drive down a highway without seeing Miranda Kerr's poreless visage staring back at you.

And now, one fewer place will be safe from those unfairly adorable dimples and brilliantly sparkling blue eyes: Your kitchen cupboard. 

In an unexpected (yet, somehow, totally predictable) move, the ex-Victoria's Secret Angel has signed on to design a line of fine bone china teaware -- that's teacups, saucers, dishes, pots and cake stands -- for English porcelain brand Royal Albert. Kerr announced the collaboration Thursday morning via Instagram, along with an event in Sydney giving fans the chance to take their morning tea with the model. The collection goes on sale Friday.

According to the brand's site, the floral, butterfly-filled pieces are inspired by Kerr's "love of nature, the color palette of her garden, travels throughout the world, and treasured memories of afternoons spent sipping tea from her grandmother's own Royal Albert tea set" -- and I have to admit: As bored as I've become with Kerr and her 10,000 endorsement deals (including Reebok, H&M, Swarovski, Escada, Wonderbra, ShopStyle... shall I go on?), I can't deny the cuteness that is these teacups. I want them. All of them.

The only thing I'm left wondering is, how come we never noticed any twee tea sets in the background all those times we saw Miranda Kerr dancing around those spacious homes alone on her days off? Hmmm?
