Miranda Kerr: I'm Most Comfortable in My Knickers

Miranda Kerr’s flawless post-baby body has everyone a little jealous. The Victoria’s Secret Angel, mom to son Flynn, 4 months, with husband Orlando Bloom, bounced right back after giving birth, even hitting the runway in a Paris fashion show. But it didn’t come without a lot of hard work — and some mixed emotions. “I felt a little nervous,” Kerr told PEOPLE recently of her return to the runway. “I hadn’t been in high heels for a while. It was probably a good five months since I’d worn heels, but it was kind of like riding a bicycle.” Such is life for the Aussie model, who’s since been spotted in teeny-weeny bikinis and gorgeous red carpet gowns. “My hips are wider, and my boobs are obviously bigger,” she said. “I feel like I’ve become more of a woman now, and I’m really embracing those curves.” Growing up, Kerr didn’t necessarily embrace all parts of herself — including her hair. She counts perming her hair, in an effort to emulate Julia Roberts, among her biggest beauty disasters. “She had curly, wavy, beautiful hair and I wanted that,” she said. “The perm didn’t really turn out that way. It was a trend in the ’80s that I fell for, I guess.” Calling Elizabeth Taylor and Audrey Hepburn her icons, the model mom says she’s most comfortable when she’s “just in knickers,” hanging around the house with Bloom and Flynn. “People have come to the house and I’m just in my knickers,” she reveals. “[But] I feel like it’s more appropriate to have knickers on than being completely naked.” Read more about Kerr’s beauty and fashion picks in the May 23 issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.
