Miranda Kerr Instagrams a ‘just woke up’ makeup-less selfie: cheesy or lovely?


Miranda Kerr Instagram’d this photo ^^ yesterday morning. Presumably, she had just woken up, grabbed her phone and decided to take this makeup-less selfie? Do you think that’s really what happened? Granted, I’m an old fart and I don’t understand the young’uns choice to document EVERY SINGLE MOMENT of their lives on social media, but for a major model to just wake up one morning, roll over and say, “Yes, selfie time”?? It seems random, self-absorbed and shady.

That being said, it’s a gorgeous photo and I’m jealous. I don’t really think Miranda is all that “sexy” but I do think she’s pretty in a doll-like way, but seeing her all bedhead-y and makeup less… yeah, she’s sexy. Just think, this is what Leonardo DiCaprio Gerard Butler Orlando Bloom wakes up to occasionally!

Miranda is something of a compulsive Instagram-er, so I’m including some additional photos from her feed. The black-and-white image of a topless Miranda looking into the camera is from her photoshoot for her skincare range, Kora Organics. Miranda said:

“KORA Organics is a reflection of my passion for living a healthy, balanced organic lifestyle that I want to share. I wanted to develop a range of products that bring together the very best in skincare ingredients that are designed to nourish, replenish and hydrate the skin. The range is exactly what I wanted for myself but was unable to find anywhere in the world. The products represent my healthy/balanced lifestyle, my beliefs and love of organics.”

[Via The Mirror]

Apparently, the Kora skincare line includes ingredients like aloe vera, nosehip oil and ‘noni juice’. The Mirror says most of the stuff is in the £32.00 range… more expensive than Oil of Olay, but not as expensive as La Mer. So… Miranda is becoming a Goop/Jessica Alba-type lifestyle brand, it seems. And Miranda’s marketshare is aimed at middle class and upper middle class women who love all-organic skincare stuff. Not a bad business plan at all.

    I guess there’s a suggestion that they’re both doing others on the side now. I think she looks lovely, but I’m attracted to the natural look these days. I used to pile on the makeup, but I’ve realized it just ages you more rapidly.

    • hANNA says:

      Firsty, That photo is NOT a selfie its a chris colls photoshoot.

      Secondly, I visited her website a little while ago and thought her range of products looked really good but ridiculously expensive, so I googled to find reviews on it just to see what others had to say and it has been slated massively, people saying there skin became red ; inflamed, terribly spotty, itchy, don’t buy it, etc etc etc.

      I think she’s basically using her face ; status to sell poorly made, useless, ridiculously overpriced products to gullible people who think “Kora Organics” will magically transform you Miranda Kerr.

      If anyone is thinking of buying it I’d say please don’t waste your hard earned money, it’s a load of flannel designed to leave you penniless and her much richer, Miranda is a model first and foremost NOT a dermatologist or scientist, she should stick to modelling…not severely ripping off the public. Shame on her.

      • Jennel says:

        OMG I just googled their reviews!!! KORA ABSOLUTELY SUCK!all I am reading is that it is a waste of money and they are demanding their money back

        EDIT: LMAO.. one reviewer wrote that she rather purchase a kardashian lotion than this since its more useful LMAO

      • xxx says:

        Really? My girlfriend uses is and she says it is the best skincare range she’s ever used. She has noticed a huge difference in her skin. I tried some of the moisturiser she had with her and my skin had no reaction and I have ridicuously sensitive skin – my skin reacts to soap, harsh sunscreens, heat, the ocean, some plants, metal, dog spit…. the list goes on and on.

        lol @ xxx …

  2. brin says:

    How about vapid.

    • springingforward says:

      She has a lovely figure but her face just looks too cherubic and toddler-ish to me to be described in any adult adjectives like beautiful or sexy.
      (Plus that vapid bit, yeah…)

      • Lucrezia says:

        Hah. I’ve always thought the complete opposite: her face is gorgeous, her body is too boyish.

        I find it quite amusing that we both went for “unattractively child-like” but picked opposite attributes.

      • xxx says:

        Yeah I don’t think she’s sexy. I think she’s pretty and cute. I don’t think she’ll age particularly well because her prettiness is not about good bone structure, it’s about that cherubic look. However, a lot of guys I know think she is SO sexy…

    • RocketMerry says:

      Or careless.

      Seriously, “my passion for living a healthy, balanced organic lifestyle”, like cheating on my husband with whoever passes by, so long as it’s a breathing male. Ugh.

      Also: that selfie is just there to make us think that she sleeps topless and wakes up with a perfect face that WS will be sorry to have let go.
      “Please, see me as sexy and beautiful and young!! And give me my job back.”

    • gogoGorilla says:

      I think she needs a sandwich.

  3. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    It looks like Cindy Crawfords mole has disappeared and holy botox!

  4. Maddie says:

    When did Miranda become this attention whore-y? :-S

  5. LadyMTL says:

    She is pretty and I love her hair but I don’t really see her as sexy. Mind you, she looks 1000 times better than I do when I wake up in the morning, lol.

    • Littlewood says:

      This is a photo-shoot by Chris Colls, and it’s about 5 years old. The woman is also covered in make-up and everything else you expect from said photo-shoot. Funny thing is; Chris Colls is thought to be one of the photographers she was having an affair with. So if she truly just woke-up in this picture, you now know why. :)

      • Ginger says:

        UGH! Another photographer having an affair with a model? How cliche! Makes the rest of us look bad.

  6. andrea says:

    She wakes up with no eye cheese!

  7. hadleyb says:

    She’s cute, but I don’t get sexy from her.

    One doesn’t have to be beautiful to be sexy, but she still doesn’t give off sexiness to me though her body is awesome.

    I think she may have been just laying in bed for awhile not just woke up though.

    There is something about her I don’t like, her personality seems not so nice in real life and it shows in pics? I have no idea but I don’t really care for her as a model.

    • Clair says:

      I agree there is something about her. I don’t know if she thinks she’s better than most or what.

  8. original kay says:

    sexy? no.

    all I can think is “I hope she brushed her teeth first”.

  9. Rose says:

    I don’t believe for a min that she just woke up. The pic is nice but she has a habit of posting old pics under “new pic or new photo shoot” so I don’t believe much of what she says

  10. bowers says:

    very into herself

  11. Yellowshaba says:

    I can’t stand her she seems way too into herself. If she gained 10 to 15 pounds I think she’d be sexier

  12. yeahright says:

    She is beautiful but too thin. That last picture with those pants… she looks like an Auschwitz victim.

  13. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I guess I’m alone in that I think she’s wicked pretty.

    • j.eyre says:

      No, I am with you – if I woke up looking like that, I would plaster it on billboards. This morning, I woke up with a cat on my face.

    • marie says:

      no, I think she’s pretty. I look like I stuck my finger in a light socket when I wake up.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        @J eyre-my kitty was banished from my bedroom because I had the AC on and she hates a closed door so will meow all night if I keep her in bedroom. I know I’m pathetic but I missed seeing the little furball on the pillow next me this AM :(

        @Marie-haha…yeah I look like junk in the morning.

    • Soxfan says:

      I think she is “wicked” pretty, too. : ) And it warms my New England “hot” to see the word “wicked” used here!

    • Juu says:

      I think she’s so pretty… I used to like her but now everybody’s saying she’s a bitch and I’m confused.

      • Wes says:

        You can be attractive on the outside but ugly on the inside

      • Isa says:

        I think she’s pretty too but I understand why people don’t find her sexy. Also judging just from these photos her face is becoming less round. I think she will get better with time.

    • Spooky says:

      You’re not. I think she’s perfectly lovely looking. (Maybe not everyone’s type but the heck is?!)

    • Wanda Full says:

      I agree. She has a very original look (face) and pulls off the super-slim thing quite nicely. Plus She’s always laughing and smiling in any pap photos I’ve seen of her. I understand she is supposedly a raging whore or whatever, but she seems to have a good personality about it

  14. Ais says:

    That’s not a selfie.
    It’s obviously a photo from an old shoot. The lighting and makeup is perfect and its airbrushed and you can see her forearm in the bottom left corner so she can’t have taken it herself.

  15. Kristen says:

    If I looked like that in the morning, I’d take my own photo all of the time too.

  16. Mel says:

    I’m not a fab but she has had a skincare line for a very long time..since early in her modelling days. It’s not just something she’s started up since getting married and having a baby. It’s well known in Australia.

  17. t says:

    The instagram is an ad for the face cream. Promoting herself with social media promotes the skin cream.

  18. j.eyre says:

    Just because I feel like causing trouble, a photo like that made for public consumption is usually for somebody. maybe for her husband who is still in Europe (is he?) Or maybe somebody else who isn’t calling her while her husband is away? I hope not, I really like Orlando and I have nothing against her but this is suspicious – unless her modeling career is struggling that much and she is trying to create a buzz.

  19. JS says:

    I just can’t stand this woman. So self-absorbed.

  20. MrsB says:

    I don’t even understand the phenomenon of these “selfies” I have friends on social media who take pictures of everything they’re doing…driving, cooking etc…maybe I’m showing my age, but I just don’t get it.

  21. Amber says:

    Unless she woke up in 2010, not only is that a professional photo, it was also taken YEARS ago. Google “Miranda Kerr Chris Colls” you can see the pic listed among their many other nudie, bedroom shots. It’s at the very least from early 2010. She’s been tweeting a lot of old photos-selfies, outtakes from shoots, campaigns, editorials-of herself lately. She doesn’t mention it when a pic is old. I think it’s a combination of vanity and wanting to look like she’s got stuff going on. Her fans don’t call her on it anyway. But even The Daily Mail (before kissing her butt and running an ad for Kora disguised as an article) pointed out that this was old. Compare that picture to the other two (the un-retouched ones, that still have that instagram fog), how could she possibly have woken up looking like that? Have you seen her lately? http://www.justjared.com/photo-gallery/2866222/miranda-kerr-the-great-gatsby-nyc-screening-12/

    • Littlewood says:

      Thank you! What a way to sell your overpriced crap, huh? Using pictures that are years old and pretending that they’re natural and recent. People that fall for this scheme deserve will only end up 50pounds poorer (and that for rosehip oil!) The woman hasn’t been doing anything but self promotion on her instagram lately. Makes me wonder if their relationship is over, her not going to Cannes of mentioning anything about Bloom, not going with him to NZ while he’s filming there for a month. What exactly is she busy with?

  22. Aud says:

    You mustn’t have that much in your life [of substance] if the first thing you think of doing when you wake up is to take a selfie and then post it on instagram.
    I’m beginning to feel sorry for Orlando Bloom.
    And if that is a recycled photo from years back, then it says a lot about her to post it on Instagram and make out that it’s her first thing in the morning.

  23. A says:

    It’s not a selfie, it’s from a photoshoot.

  24. TOPgirl says:

    I’m smelling a fish here! She has recently become so into herself that I think she’s going to end up Cheating on Orlando! Any day now.

    • Tiff says:

      According to some she’s been cheating on him

    • Littlewood says:

      Lol, get with the program. She’s been having affairs for years. Chris Colls the photographer that made this picture is rumored to be one of them.

  25. poppy says:

    she must not have received the memo regarding over exposure.

  26. Fan says:

    More beautiful than ever.

  27. ella says:

    That pic is def. not taken with a phone but an SLR camera and it’s not a selfie.

    She also doesn’t claim to have just woken up looking like that, she simply posted an old photoshoot photo with the caption “good morning”.

  28. balehead2012 says:

    I think she looks lovely. But the second photo is so awkward: it looks like her hands were somehow attached to her face and they are just dangling there :D

  29. Rita says:

    Nice picture but the real question is who’s she waking up with?

  30. Apples says:

    Cheesy. She’s a fame whore.

  31. kim says:

    Cheesy

    I do like her bc she looks like a normal person when she’s not in celeb mode.

  32. lela d. says:

    If you think she’s a b**** Adriana Lima Is the meanest of Mean Girls and I have not seen her in a Victoria’s Secret catalog in over a year. They both probably belong to the same club of mean girls. Adriana Lima claims he never wears makeup that her hairs always perfect blah blah blah, That you can eat anything and never Ganes any weight LOL

    • Jennel says:

      You are wrong actually, Adriana is on this years catalog..and she always bables about her photos being photoshopped and not looking like anything like the pictures…

      Every VS angel hang out with adriana… Ale praises her constantly.. you will never catch ale saying something about miranda.. no VS model hangs out with her.. well except lily who married a celebrity for fame so..

      • Littlewood says:

        I have only heard good stories about Adriana all the other Angels seem to love her, she also seems to keep her private life private and lets her child(ren?) grow up without being dragged in front of the paps every other day. She has also mentioned countless times before how hard it is to maintain her figure and has posted sweaty, post workout pics on her instagram. She also not preachy and judgemental towards other women and seems to love and support her husband. This all makes her about a thousand times better then Kerr in my eyes.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        I don´t think even her and Lily are friends anymore, she made Erin Heatherton the godmother of her child.

      • Crackberry says:

        Does anyone know what happened b/w Lily and MK?

  33. Ginger says:

    She is a beautiful girl but too skinny for my taste. And as for being self absorbed…she is a model. Most of them (not all) are self absorbed. As for the constant posting, I’m with you Kaiser! I just don’t understand “these kids today” Now get off of my lawn!

  34. Nicolette says:

    *Yawn*

  35. Bogz says:

    She is awesome&can do no wrong!!!

  36. Annie says:

    LOL at “just woke up selfie”. Miranda is stunning, but *nobody* looks like this when they just woke up, not even her.

  37. tekla says:

    say what you will, she’s totally gorgeous… I just got a little sad thinking about how I look in the mornings :/ some people have great genes, some do not.

  38. Marianne says:

    I’m sure she took that photo a bunch of times,until she found the “perfect” one to share.

  39. Crackberry says:

    So desperate.
    You were fired by your 2 biggest contracts. You are OVER!!!!!!

  40. Kate says:

    It is not an iPhone photo. That is for sure. The bokeh alone gives that away.
