Maybe we were drawn in by the smile and the fact that she's married to Orlando Bloom (whose judgment we assume is as good as his looks...that's how things work, right?), but we always thought she seemed like a sweetheart. Having glimpsed her on occasion at press events, she always seemed gracious and friendly. But sources also say she hasn't been as big of a seller as fellow Angels Alessandra Ambrosio and Candice Swanepoel — also suspicious since, by all accounts, she's equally if not more popular.
StyleCaster astutely points out that this may have something to do with Kerr's outspoken views on the use of certain chemicals in manufacturing, something that's caused controversy for Victoria's Secret in the past. If the rumors are true, that may be part of it. But we think this story might just be making mountains out of molehills. When you're as big and as busy as Miranda Kerr, you don't really have the same kind of contract as other models. It's quite possible that, due to other commitments, she's transitioning to a per-event contract with the brand — which probably isn't as salacious as it sounds.
