Miranda Kerr does photo call as the new face of Mango: hilariously try-hard?

Here are some photos of Miranda Kerr in Madrid where she was being “unveiled” as the new face of Mango. The last time I paid attention to Mango, Scarlett Johansson was their face, and her Mango ads were just terrible and corpsey. But I guess Kate Moss replaced ScarJo, and now Miranda is replacing Moss. The way she’s posing and making love to the cameras… it’s cracking me up. Miranda is acting like this is the biggest gig of her life! And it’s not. Miranda works all the time. So why is she acting so over-the-top for this photocall? Maybe this is just how she sells product, I guess. Also: for a second, I thought Miranda’s bust looked bigger, but CB said Miranda is probably just wearing a padded bra, plus she’s arching her back in most of these pics.

Meanwhile, there are still lots and lots of rumors about Miranda and Orlanda Bloom and how they might be having some problems. Mostly those rumors are connected to the rumors that Miranda has been getting flirty with Leonardo DiCaprio while Orly is away. So Miranda has spent much of the past week talking about her happy, happy family. Nevermind that she hasn’t seen Orly in weeks, I guess.

She’s making a list and checking it twice — and some of her gifts are naughty and nice! Supermodel Miranda Kerr is stocking up for the holidays, and she’s got a few sexy surprises in store for her loved ones. The Victoria’s Secret Angel, 29, recently sat down with Us Weekly’s beauty director, Gwen Flamberg, to chat about presents, pampering, and her plans for the holiday with husband Orlando Bloom and son Flynn, 23 months.

Not surprisingly, the brunette beauty’s gift list includes several items from Victoria’s Secret — including the bejeweled lace-trimmed bra she wore on the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. (“This bra is a must-have for every woman!” she says.)

Also on her list? A little piano for Flynn, who recently proved himself to be something of a mini Beethoven at play group.

“There were a whole bunch of different musical instruments around, a whole bunch of toys — different things that he could have gone to — and the first thing he went for was this little piano…and he sat right down and started, like, playing [it],” the proud mom boasted to Us. “It was amazing.”

In fact, Kerr said, Flynn has been showing more and more personality — which should make this year’s holiday festivities even more exciting.

“Orlando and I don’t work over Christmas and the holiday season, so it’s really nice for us to be together as a family,” the model explained. “And this year, since Flynn is a little bit older, it’s going to be so nice to just see the way that he gets excited about Christmas…The wonderful thing is that we’re all together.”

The Australian-born bombshell loves to cook — and eat! — so she’ll be preparing an extra-special holiday meal for her family: slow-roasted chicken with garlic, coconut oil, onion, lemon, and a little turmeric. (“It’s probably mine and Flynn’s favorite dish,” she revealed.)

Kerr also let us in on her recipe for great skin: hydration, organic products, and — her secret ingredient — rose hip oil. “You wake up and your skin is glowing!” she gushed.

Her final tip for staying sexy all winter? “Stay active during this festive season. It’s so easy to think, ‘Oh, it’s too cold to go outside,’” she told Us. “But…just go for a walk with your family. Or turn up the music at home and dance!”

First of all… that roast chicken dish sounds really good. Like, crazy good. I’m so hungry. As for the rest of it… I’m sure Miranda and Orly will spend the holidays together. But will they last another year? It could either way, I think. Either she’ll get pregnant again or they’ll split up.

    This girl is one of the most over rated models out there at the moment.

  2. Ms Kay says:

    Miranda dear, Mango isn’t Victoria Secret now loose the sassy sexy pose please!

    And yes we all know that your *chef* is cooking that slow-roasted chicken for Xmas.

  3. lylaooo says:

    i’m starting to getting bored by her…

  4. andy says:

    Miranda is a prettier brunette version of a young Cameron Diaz.

  5. Christina says:

    She won’t get preggers again. She’s already been there/done that with the pimp your kid for the paps, bore the world with inane talk of your ‘excrutiating natural birth’ thing. Doing the whole charade again would just invoke the law of diminishing returns.

  6. Sombrero says:

    She’s just so so fake,i liked her but now ugh

    She claims she lives organic lifestyle but caught smoking and drinking. Her people even contact thefashionspot to pull down that photos

    There’s also a pic of her running with Heidi K and clearly she has implants, so much for natural
    And the photo of her with scar across tummy, i think that’s lipo scar

    And i also think she tips those paps, it’s ridiculous DailyMail and JJ have pic of her every single day.

  7. Ellie says:

    I feel like every interview I read from her she somehow slips in something about coconut oil. She even puts it in her tea.

    It’s weird that this is what sticks out about her to me. Maybe she should find something more interesting to talk about.

  8. Mayday says:

    She looks fantastic. You guys are nuts.

  9. dorothy says:

    Used to love her. After constant photo ops, over exposure in the media, I’m just so over this woman. Go home to Orlando.

  10. Dahlia1947 says:

    She seems fake and opportunistic. And these poses are way over the top. She’s squirming around too much!

  11. Sasha says:

    I might be the only person in the world who does not get her appeal AT ALL.

  12. Ally says:

    I can imagine little Flynn playing his mini piano. Yes Miranda is too much in our faces but I still like her, I think that pic is goofy.

    Also think Orlando and her are fine, he’s been filming in NZ and then SA all year after taking a long break.

  13. Gwen says:

    They went from Kate Moss to Miranda? What a let down Zara..

  14. regina says:

    she’s super annyoning but did produce one helluva cute baby!

  15. OhDear says:

    Looks like she’s acting as if she realizes she needs to take advantage of any career (or fame, depending on your perspective of her) opportunities while she can? Her career (or reason for being famous) is based on her appearance, but given how narrow the acceptable range is re: appearance in modelling, she can’t bank on it forever.

  16. Skipper says:

    Why do I hate white pumps so much? I just feel like they should have stayed in the 80s with shoulder pads. Maybe white jeans too.

  17. Happy21 says:

    This woman is really starting to grate on my nerves!

  18. Starlight says:

    What’s wrong with this site? Those that make comments are vicious different from another sites. Bunch of jealous women are here. Now I know why our country is …….fast. Showing bad examples to young girls.

  19. Bonfire Beach says:

    I get such a little girl vibe from her. I can’t put my finger on it but to me she doesn’t seem grown up. Otherwise, I’m MEH about her.

  20. she says:

    She looks so much like rekha!!!

  21. gatinha says:

    i love her street style, she always looks so polished and i think she pulls together really cohesive looks without looking overstyled.

  22. Rita says:

    I love her even though she’s a bit over exposed with her one trick pony pose until she brings Flynn to the party. She’s getting ready to leave her modeling career as the mainstay and seems to be putting herself out there for other opportunities but she’ll have to work hard to be more than just an extremely gorgeous woman.

  23. lilred says:

    Stand by your man … (ORLY that is).

  24. I Choose Me says:

    A little try-hard perhaps but essentially harmless. She and Orly has the cutest kid.

    • j.eyre says:

      @ICM – isn’t that last pose what you do when you are trying to decide whether to buy the Spice Island or the McCormick’s Turmeric at the grocery store?

      She doesn’t bother me either. She is beautiful and I like that she wears her wedding rings in her VS spreads. I hope they are a happy family.

  25. Moi says:

    Don’t know much about her, so don’t quite get the hate. Beautiful as most VS models are *shrugs*

  26. sharylmj says:

    I don’t hate her either, and Flynn is THE CUTEST baby ever… she has that going for her :) (plus hubby isn’t bad either!!)

  27. Alexandra Bananarama says:

    I need help with this one..

    Didn’t her and bloom date briefly… he ended it… she’s turns up pregnant… she claims baby is his and he’s waiting for paternity test… then they’re married a little while later.

    Or did it happen some other way?

  28. kimcheee says:

    That company has the worst photogs and people…..ugh!

  29. DanaG says:

    I think she is the most over rated model ever and I am so sick of seeing her tottering around overdressed carrying that poor baby around like a prop. Yes we know Miranda you got yourself pregnant only reason Orlando married you. I’m thinking it’s about over then we will get the whole custody issue and who will Miranda get pregnant too next?

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      I don’t love or hate this woman, but she is a mother with a very young child. In early photos she always had the baby cart covered and now that he can walk he can be seen. Maybe she just doesn’t want to be apart from him? Maybe she loves him and isn’t intentionally using him as a prop.

      And you kind of answered my question above. The baby wasn’t planned and he married post baby. Assuming it is all true she’s pretty bad.

  30. Abby says:

    aw I love her. She’s my favorite Angel. And good for her for trying to branch out. You can’t be a VS model forever.

  31. Marian says:

    I prefer Kate Moss — I like her sense of style and look. I find her more “relateable” through her imperfections which makes her beautiful, charismatic and edgy, in short she’s got the X-factor that is captured on cameras which most new models don’t have. Kate’s got something I can’t explain verbally. Miranda is too pretty and perfect that she has become boring. She’s perfect model for long gowns and lacy underwear but not Mango clothes. When she wears ripped jeans, she makes it look formal not rugged and edgy.

  32. Boxy Lady says:

    I saw her on Craig Ferguson recently and she seemed like a sweetheart. And perfectly harmless.

  33. Kosmos says:

    Oh, come on….she’s very beautiful and she was chosen to be a model because of her striking looks. I’m sure she would not have lasted this long if she were ugly or somehow disappointing. She’s just posing, as I see most of the other women doing the same. I don’t know if she’s authentic as a person or not, so I can’t speak for that.

  34. poppy says:

    bless this one- so full of helpful advice, like the goop of victoria secret.
    OMG! try my chicken recipe and look at me in these panties! i am just like you, except, better than you, and i will happily tell you how to navigate life with aplomb.

  35. Just G says:

    I like her, she’s harmless… but I think she was drunk… Would explain it.
    Just look at her eyes

  36. gg says:

    I really don’t get the hate – I think she’s one of the prettiest models in the world right now. To my taste anyway. She’s stunning.
