Reminder That Miranda Kerr Was Discovered At 13 By Dolly Magazine
Miranda won Dolly magazine's annual modelling competition and instantly became a star.
Here's Miranda Kerr at age 13.
In April 1997, Miranda won the annual Dolly/Impulse model competition.
Basically, she looks exactly the same as she does now.
13-year-old Miranda said that her friends were the most important thing in the world to her.
She described her mum as "unreal" and said that she was her hero.
Dolly described her as a "total sweetheart, the kind of girl you'd hang out with."
At the time, Miranda was "totally excited" to fly to Sydney by herself from her small town of Gunnedah, New South Wales, for the photoshoot that would launch her career.
Dolly described her as "really confident in front of the camera" and "totally professional."
Thanks, Dolly, for discovering Miranda Kerr!
