When it comes to fashion week models, there's one beauty who we're always on the look out for: Miranda Kerr. The Australian stunner skips the three other cities in order to walk exclusively at Paris Fashion Week (she is one chic lady, after all) so after she popped up at the H&M show on Wednesday (she's the new face of the brand), we knew it was just a matter of time before we tracked her down. And today the happy occasion happened! It was backstage at the Sonia Rykiel show that we met Miranda and naturallement took the opportunity to grill her on everything from her healthy lifestyle to her Instagram antics...
Grazia Daily: What does it feel like to be walking for Sonia Rykiel today?
Miranda Kerr: I love the brand. What I like the most about this season's collection is that it feels really good; I'm quite a tactile person. The fabrics are so comfortable. I always say it's important not only to look good but to feel good too. And it's really chic.
Grazia Daily: You're well known for your healthy lifestyle, how do you keep it up when you're travelling for fashion week?
Miranda Kerr: It's a bit of a combination of everything when I travel. I try to do yoga when I can and I also do Pilates; it depends on time where I do it. I eat really healthily; I like to bring a salad from my hotel backstage so I get the nutrients I need. I always have almonds with me and eat lots of avocado.

Grazia Daily: We saw you at the H&M show and your first campaign for the brand has just dropped. What's the experience of working with the brand been like?
Miranda Kerr: It's been really good. I think they're a great brand they have so many great pieces you can mix in with your wardrobe. They might be on trend but they are pieces you can afford that are very wearable which I like. I loved the Autumn Winter studio collection; the cuts were so good.\
Grazia Daily: Do you ever channel a character when you walk down the catwalk?
Miranda Kerr: It depends on the show! It's about the mood and the direction from designers; they might want it to be strong and powerful or soft and cheeky and feminine. It's important to look at the cameras as if it's someone, as if it's not just a camera.

Grazia Daily: You are a prolific Instagramer. Who do you follow and why do you like it?
Miranda Kerr: I follow toooo many people! I just love Instagram because it visually updates you like a diary and it's fun to see what friends are doing all over the world. I don't agonise over my pictures, I just think it's fun to share a little moment.
Grazia Daily: What are your top packing tips?
Miranda Kerr: I always travel with an eye mask so I can block out light no matter where I am or what the time zone....earphones are essential and good meditation. I always bring a cashmere wrap scarf and comfortable clothes to change into on the aeroplane - sweatpants and a T-shirt and my scarf.
For beauty I always bring my cleanser, toner and moisturiser from my skin line, Kora Organics. The rose hip oil is also amazing - you put it on your skin on the flight and it's just glowing when you get off.
We'll be sure to give it a go! Thanks Miranda.
