Miranda Kerr talks diet, work out and wearing a $2.5 million Victoria’s Secret bra

Kerr walks the runway during the 2011 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, which airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. on CBS.

For the first time in her five years of walking down the runway as one of the Victoria’s Secret Angels — watch them strut tonight when the show airs at 10 p.m. on CBS — Australian bombshell Miranda Kerr got the honor of wearing the $2.5 million Fantasy Treasure Bra. And that’s just months after giving birth to her first baby with husband Orlando Bloom. We ask her the question every woman wants to know.

You lost the baby weight ridiculously fast. Can you give us a breakdown of your daily diet?

Everyday is different, but I like to start the day with a fresh green juice with kale, spinach, cucumber, beets and lemon. Then half an hour later, I have a power smoothie which has Sunwarrior protein powder, chia seeds, maca powder, raw cacao, bee pollen, goji berries, noni juice, Vitamineral Green and coconut water. Then an hour after that I’ll have oatmeal or eggs. That’s my three-course power breakfast. For lunch I might have some grilled fish with goat cheese or baby spinach salad and olives. Sometimes I’ll have a sweet potato. At dinner, I’ll have a lentil soup and maybe some chicken. And I love to have my salads with avocado, feta and spinach.

It sounds like a lot of careful maintenance. What does your workout regimen look like?

I’ve been practicing yoga for over 12 years. After I had the baby, I started doing Pilates. That was really helpful. Three weeks leading up to the VS?show, I start working out five times a week using a resistance band and leg weights.

Is the Fantasy Treaure Bra heavy?

No, it’s not so heavy. But my wings are really heavy.

Besides the $2.5 million bra, what’s the biggest difference between walking Victoria’s Secret and a high-fashion show such as Balenciaga?

The great thing with Victoria’s Secret is they really encourage us girls to interact with the audience and show a bit of personality, so it’s a totally different thing for sure. The Victoria’s Secret show is quite a theatrical performance. I love to be in the moment and feel the music.

Where does one go after modeling the $2.5 million bra? What do the next five years look like for you? 

I really want to expand my  skincare line, Kora Organics, all over the world. I created a line that I personally wanted — it’s a certified organic range — but couldn’t find. It’s  been my passion and my idea. I invested the money behind the product.  I blog [on the site] once a week.

Backstage talk

“Working out makes your skin glow. It’s a natural detox. I also drink a lot of water and coconut water and love Rodin Olio Lusso Face Oil. For makeup, I use black mascara and lip gloss.” Adriana
Lima

“Every day I wash my face with something that contains salicylic acid, and then I continue with an advanced night repair. I put it on in the morning and I mix it with Estee Lauder DayWear Plus — it has SPF 15. It’s important to protect your skin in the morning.” Joan Smalls
