Miranda Kerr lounges at the pool at her Malibu home in the new issue of Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands August 16.
Here’s what the 33-year-old model had to share with the mag:
On the extravagant gift for her home from Evan Spiegel: “This property was a dust bowl when I bought it and now it’s so green. Obviously I’m aware of the drought problem in California. This [Skywater 300] system really just pulls water out of the sky. It was a very thoughtful present because he knows how much I love a garden.”
On loving her new home: “I knew that this house was it at first sight. It needed a lot of work, but it had a great view. It wasn’t right on the water, so it was protected from the wind and very private. I could just see the potential. It felt so right. In some ways it felt like a tree house. That was another thing that I loved. It’s all open, and the view of the ocean makes it feel more spacious.”
On moving from NYC to Malibu: “Orlando and I were living in New York, and we loved it there, but we were considering what the best options were for our son [Flynn]… We thought it would be a better lifestyle for Flynn. He could be outside playing year-round, playing in the sand. We could have a garden.”
