Miranda Kerr, best known as one of the Victoria's Secret Angels, rose to prominence within the fashion industry in her mid-teens after winning a 1997 Australian nation-wide model search hosted by Dolly Magazine and Impulse fragrances. Her youth caused controversy in the Australian press, which raised concerns about the ethics of showing such a young girl in skimpy clothing. Miranda at the time went back to her home town in country Australia and finished her studies and then went on to study Nutrition and Health Psychology, at the Academy of Natural Living.
