Miranda Kerr SwimsuitMariano Vivanco for Net-a-Porter

It’s the first real day of summer, and what better way to kick things off than pictures of Miranda Kerr in a swimsuit?

Net-a-Porter.com apparently agrees with us, because they shot the sexy model in all sorts of bold swimwear for this week’s issue, all about bikinis, maillots and everything in between.

And though the photos say a lot, Kerr has plenty to add in her interview, on subjects ranging from being targeted by the Bling Ring and parting ways with Victoria’s Secret — plus the surprising way she keeps her marriage strong.

On having her lingerie lifted by the teen thieves now immortalized in a movie with Emma Watson: “The weird thing is that I am not attached to things: they come and they go,” she said. “It could have been worse, that’s what I always say about everything. I mean, no one was hurt.”

On the supposedly acrimonious split with Victoria’s Secret: “Ed [Razek, who has been casting the models for 15 years] and I are really good friends, and we both decided it was impractical for me to continue. I have such fond memories of working with them.”

And the supermodel even opens up about her marriage to actor Orlando Bloom, admitting that she likes to turn on her girlie charms when she’s off the clock. “I am quite dominant in my career, so what really works for me when I come home, is to relax more into the feminine side,” she says. “If you’re really an alpha female, you don’t allow [your partner] to have the space to feel like the man in the relationship. Maybe I am too traditional, but men feel important when you ask for their help, instead of thinking you can do it all on your own.”

It probably doesn’t hurt that she looks like that in a swimsuit, either.

So she let’s him feel like the man in the relationship? Wow, supermodels really live up to their reputations.

Married people should ask for help from their spouses. Not because a husband needs to feel like “a man” but because you’re PARTNERS. You should have some dependence on each other, it’s a good thing. If not you’re just living two separate lives as roommates, you have to share things–interests, tasks, goals, etc.
