Hmm, Grazia Daily is wondering whether Miranda Kerr is not only a supermodel, but also a superhuman. Why? Because earlier today, the Aussie beauty took to Balenciaga’s catwalk just seven weeks after giving birth. Yup, you read that right - and here's the proof:

Woah. It's hard to believe it was less than two months ago that the world was congratulating Kerr and Orlando Bloom on the arrival of their first son, Flynn. "I gave birth to him naturally; without any pain medication and it was a long, arduous and difficult labour,” the 27-year-old said at the time. But as she appeared in designer Nicolas Ghesquière’s show, which took place in Paris just hours ago, you’d never have known. In fact, the yummy mummy and her post-baby bod looked as graceful as ever in a flattering black draped gown, while her Hollywood hubby watched proudly from the FROW.

Even more amazing, despite popping out Baby Bloom in between, this means Kerr hasn’t missed one season since the [then little known] model first took to the Balenciaga catwalk in 2009. And who could forget when she flaunted her barely-there baby bump for the luxury label’s S/S ‘11 show in September last year? Since then, Kerr, who was a total knockout even when knocked-up, continued to take us by surprise, not only working throughout her pregnancy but upping her modelling credentials with shoots for her home country's Australian Vogue and the prerequisite 'pregnant nude' for W magazine. Plus, after today’s show, she tweeted, “Just walked for Balenciaga - about to walk again soon”. Ooh, does this mean a second Kerr/PFW appearance??
Joining Mrs Bloom on the French fashion house’s catwalk was Stella Tennant, Arizona Muse and Freja Beha Erichsen [above]. Intriguingly, Freja has been notably absent from the shows thus far, saving her A/W ‘11 debut for the Paris shows. Ooh, whoever will pop up next? As ever, we'll be watching!
