How Miranda Kerr looks like Miranda Kerr.

ELLE (Canada) - - News -

MIRANDA KERR could teach a master class in bal­anced liv­ing. The mega-model, pub­lished au­thor and cer­ti­fied health prac­ti­tioner ra­di­ates hap­pi­ness as the face of Es­cada’s new Joy­ful per­fume, an up­lift­ing bou­quet of flow­ers “en­riched with earthy san­dal­wood and pink pe­ony, which I adore,” she says. We have much to learn from her su­per­model ways, but we’ve nar­rowed it down to 10 lessons—for now.

1. BE JOY­FUL. Kerr takes in­spi­ra­tion from the fra­grance’s mes­sage of find­ing plea­sure in the mo­ments that make up your day. “My nat­u­ral char­ac­ter is very joy­ful and fun; I like to be silly and very present with my

friends and fam­ily and when I’m at work.”

2. SUP­PORT THE LADIES. Kerr wrote Trea­sure Your­self, a col­lec­tion of life lessons

and daily af­fir­ma­tions. “Em­pow­er­ing women to em­brace their in­di­vid­u­al­ity is very dear to my heart. I want young women to feel that they don’t have to

fit into a cer­tain cat­e­gory. They can be au­then­tic and

feel pow­er­ful within.” 6. SAY “OM.” “Take five or 10 min­utes for your­self and do a lit­tle med­i­ta­tion. You can give so much more to your fam­ily and your work, and you’re gen­er­ally much hap­pier if you do things that make you feel good.” 10. MAKE AN IM­PRES­SION. Kerr sprays Es­cada Joy­ful on her clothes be­fore she gets dressed and on the ends of her hair. “When I walk through a room, it’s a sub­tle way of mak­ing my pres­ence known.”

5. WATCH THE CLOCK. “Since I had my son, it ap­pears that I’m work­ing more than I was be­fore, but I’m ac­tu­ally work­ing more ef­fi­ciently. I’ve learned to plan my sched­ule and en­sure that I have enough qual­ity time with my son and for my friends and my­self.”

8. JUST BOUNCE.“I love to put on some mu­sic and dance to de-stress. I have a lit­tle re­bounder. My son [Flynn, three] and I have such fun jump­ing around.” 7. BE EN­TRE­PRE­NEUR­IAL. Kerr’s desert-is­land musthave beauty prod­uct comes from her own beauty range: KORA Or­gan­ics En­riched Body Lo­tion ($58). “It’s re­ally hy­drat­ing, and you can use it on your body as well as your face.”


Look­ing pulled to­gether is easy, ac­cord­ing to Kerr.

“A bit of con­cealer, a red lip, my sun­glasses and I’m

ready to go. I have quite a col­lec­tion of reds. It has only been a cou­ple of years since I started lik­ing red. If you’re tired, it can re­ally

up­lift your mood.”

4. BE PRE­PARED. Be­cause a Vi­ta­mix is too heavy to lug to shoots in her Givenchy Antig­ona, Kerr al­ways packs

her own per­sonal smoothie mix: one ta­ble­spoon each of acaí pow­der, goji berries, spir­ulina, raw ca­cao pow­der, maca pow­der and chia and 1½ ta­ble­spoons of ve­gan rice pro­tein pow­der. “I have these lit­tle travel baggies that I make up be­fore I leave the house,

and then I just add wa­ter or co­conut wa­ter.”

Es­cada Joy­ful Eau de Par­fum Spray ($104 for 75 mL). For de­tails, see Shop­ping Guide.

9. GET OUT­SIDE.“I love to be out­doors and go walk­ing in na­ture and along the beach. Be­ing in na­ture is so en­er­giz­ing.”
