You may consider Miranda Kerr to be Australia's most successful model, but that's not how she describes herself.

Kerr has told Net-a Porter’s magazine The Edit that from her first photoshoot at 14-years-old she never saw herself as a model.

“If someone asks me what I do, I say, ‘I have my own skincare line.’ I don’t define myself as a model,” she says.

Kerr doesn’t diss modeling completely, saying that she enjoys expressing her different sides through the medium of photography.

“It’s fun. I might as well do it while I can. It’s not going to last forever.”

The model-who’s-not-a-model says she thrives on the mental stimulation she gets from making executive decisions in the running of KORA Organics.

“I’m very driven,” she asserts. “I don’t ever feel stressed; I feel calm when I’m multi-tasking.”

Despite her Zen approach, the successful multi-tasker admits she struggles with the lack of privacy in her life, “especially being a mother.”

“When I have an off-duty day, it’s challenging if there are photographers around. It becomes a circus and I don’t want that for Flynn.”

Despite not wanting to put Flynn in the spotlight, the three-year-old cutie appears with his mum in the pages of Vogue Australia's July edition.

The mother-son duo posed for the photos, which got the OK from dad Orlando Bloom, when they were in Sydney in May.

It was a busy visit to Australia for the Kerr-Blooms, with Miranda making a number of appearances for the brands she endorses, including Swarovski and Royal Albert China. She also spent time with her family, sharing their get-togethers via her popular Instagram account (perhaps to address the rumours of a family feud).

While she may shy away from the tag of 'model', we're always curious to see what the author, singer, and certified health practitioner will get up to next.
