After a slightly shaky start into the industry at the age of 13, Kerr faced commercial success through her beachwear ads for Billabong, Tigerlily and others. She has since been featured in many print magazines such as Elle, Australian Vogue and Harpers Bazaar. She has also graced the covers of magazines like Rolling Stone Australia, Harpers Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, GQ Germany and has appeared in television advertisements for brands such as Bonds, Portmans and Veets.
She became the first Australian to be offered a contract with Victoria’s Secret, joining the illustrious Adriana Lima, Selita Ebanks and Heidi Klum. Kerr appeared in four Victoria’s Secret runway shows from 2006 to 2009. Her sharp rise to prominence even landed her in the top 10 highest earning models of 2008, according to Forbes Magazine.
