  • She once appeared on Project Runway modeling clothes for Daniel Vosovic's final collection on the show.
  • In May 2010, Kerr was listed at number 9 on Forbes' Top Earning Models list.
  • Those dimples are her trademark.
  • She was born in Syndey, but raised in the small town of Gunnedah, New South Wales.
  • Before becoming a model, she studied nutrition and psychology. 
  • She's the first Australian to be a Victoria's Secret Angel.
  • She once made a cameo on the CBS comedy How I Met Your Mother
  • Reportedly, she's writing an inspirational self-help book entitled Treasure Yourself.
  • In June 2009, she posed naked and chained to a tree for the Oz edition of Rolling Stone...to bring attention to the koala's endangered habitat. (That's really true!)

Daniel Vosovic: Extremely Loyal to Duane Reade

What A Cutie! What A Cutie!

Chic recently stopped by former Project Runway sweetie Daniel Vosovic's Chelsea studio to take another look at his collection, and small-talk. Another deep conversation from your friends at Chic Report! 

 

What are your favorite neighborhood haunts? 

Café Grumpy on 20th between 7th and 8th Avenues. They're the sweetest people, and they make the most amazing cappuccino. My boyfriend and I are very skinny twinks, but we love to shove our faces full of Mary Ann's Mexican on 16th Street and 8th Avenue. We love The Grey Dog, as well. Do you know Le Grainne Café on 9th Avenue and 20th Street? Cute little French place. The service is abysmal, and I love that. You can eat there for 3 hours and they'll never drop off the check. 

 

Are you a Duane Reade or a CVS person?

Duane Reade, of course. Give me nice, clean and devoid of personality, I'll take it. 

 

What do you love most about Duane Reade?

Assorted medications! 

 

There's a new CVS in the hood. 

I will pass.

 

What do you do for fun?

We get out of the city. I love me a movie. I'd be in film if I wasn't a fashion designer.  

 

Have you seen the Bill Cunningham doc?

Phenomenal! Just phenomenal. Everyone is the new someone, but Bill is the original, bitches! 

 

What do you think of Andy Cohen, Major TV Star? 

It's hilarious! He is staring at me on every subway, every bus. He came to my show in February. I only knew him as the executive producer of Runway. Now I'm like, Who're you kidding, Andy? You know he wanted this the whole time! I love it.

Some items just fall from the sky! A Canadian auto dealer has created an ad to hawk used cars...featuring a picture of Tom Ford. Why? Unclear. Chic reached out to the dealer's owner, one Dale Wurfel, for comment, but he was still at lunch as of post time. Story developing...
