Pretty Victoria's Secret model Miranda Kerr has become famous for her girl next door looks and slim but curvaceous figure. Mail Online reported.
But it seems her ambition to make the usually impossible leap from commercial modelling to fairytale world of couture has seen her dramatically drop weight to make the transition.
The former Maybelline model - the world's tenth highest earning model - has been much in demand for the lingerie brand, and for swimwear shoots for magazines such as Sports Illustrated.
But the 26-year-old Australian cut a distinctly emaciated on a fashion shoot for magazine Grazia in Sydney.
From the back she looked virtually unrecognisable as she posed in a tightly laced corset on the rooftop of the Museum of Contemporary Art.
Miranda's ribs protruded, and her skin was tightly stretched across her bony back. Her thin arms also looked extremely sinewy.
The reason for the Australian's sudden weight loss is not exactly hard to fathom.
It seems her ambitions to do high fashion modelling were realised earlier this month she made an appearance on the catwalk for Balenciaga, the fashion world's coolest label right now.
