Miranda Kerr Is Stepping Away from Modeling to Focus on Her Marriage
Miranda Kerr's marriage to Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegal has changed her life in more ways than just the one. (But really, after a backyard May wedding that dreamy, who could ever stay the same?). The 34-year-old model and mother has taken a step back from the runways of New York Fashion Week-and model calls in general-to work on her new family and her skincare line, Kora Organics.
Running a growing business, all while juggling married life and motherhood (she shares a son, Flynn, with ex-husband Orlando Bloom) has required a few mental shifts on Kerr's part. "At work, I'm like, 'We need to do this! and, This needs to happen!,'" Kerr told The Edit. "But at home, I slip into my feminine and empower Evan to be in his masculine."
Turns out, the empowerment is mutual-it was actually Spiegal who inspired Kerr to throw her time and energy into her business: "He said, 'Why are you spending your energy working for other companies when you should be focusing on your own? You need to take a risk. If you believe in this, put everything into it,'" Kerr explained.
Marriage has done more for Kerr than just alter her business goals. It's completely changed what she considers important. "I've modeled for 20 years, it's just not a priority anymore," she said. "Now, if an opportunity comes up, I think, 'Is this in the best interest of my family?' and 'Will this interrupt Kora?' If it passes through those two gates, and if the shoot's in LA, then..."
On extending that honeymoon phase beyond honeymoon itself (the couple vacationed at the dreamy Laucala Island resort in Fiji), Kerr has a bit of family wisdom up her sleeve. "My grandma taught me that men are visual and you need to make a little effort," she said. "So when [Evan] comes home, I make sure to have a nice dress on and the candles lit. We make time to have a nice dinner together."
Hey, if Kerr's dinner dresses are even half as stunning as her Grace Kelly-inspired wedding dress, we're seeing prolonged marital bliss in the couple's future.
