Our Liza (LEEZA) Herz writes for lots of magazines, such as Fashion, Zoomer and Elle Canada. One of her latest pieces for Elle Canada is a chat with gorgeous Miranda Kerr, who is currently everywhere, including ads for Escada's Joyful perfume. Over the course of their girl-talk, Liza got the scoop on Miranda Kerr's power smoothie, her favourite mani shade for summer, where she gets her hair cut and highlighted, and her little fragrance trick. Hey, that's at least three ways we can pretend we're just like Miranda.

Can we please have Miranda Kerr as our best friend? A Pinterest favourite for her off-duty look, (J Brand skinnies, oversized sunnies and always a coveted It Bag) she’s also warm and maternal (see: Flynn) and has even written two books of daily affirmations for young women, sharing what she’s learned during her years as a globe-trotting supe.
And now after a hectic year of fronting campaigns for H&M, Reebok, Swarovski and Clear shampoo, she’s the new face (and wraparound smile) of Escada’s new Joyful fragrance, her infectious positive attitude a perfect match for this exuberant blend of lush blooms (“peony is my favourite flower”) and warm woods.
MK: “I have my little smoothie recipe. So I have the little travel baggies that I make before I leave the house and just add water to that or coconut water if they have it, wherever I go.”
Miranda Kerr's Power SmoothieInto a zip-top bag, put 1 tablespoon each of acai powder, goji berries, spirulina, raw cacao powder, maca powder, chia seeds and 1 ½ T vegan rice protein powder. Stir into a glass of coconut water and drink up!
Q: And you’re a client of Canadian hair stylist Harry Josh?
MK: So funny, I saw Harry the other day. I work with him a lot, and he’s cut and coloured my hair a lot. I’ll get my hair cut on the job, or they’ll do a couple of little highlights while I’m there.
Q: Do you enjoy getting manicures?
MK: I really like getting manicures. I love a bright nail especially for the summer. I love a bright red, like an orangey red. Otherwise I like a nude nail.
Q: We hear you have a special way of applying fragrance.
MK: I might spray a little bit on my clothes before I put them on and I like to apply it to the ends of my hair, so when I walk through a room it’s a subtle way of making my presence.
