Year 2007: Miranda Kerr was an up-and-coming model who just signed on as a Victoria’s Secret Angel. She started dating Orlando Bloom, and as if his last name influenced the future, Miranda Kerr really did bloom as a supermodel, a businesswoman, a mother, and as a street-style icon.
So, what went wrong? Everything was so perfect!
We’re clearly still not over the news of Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom’s breakup, so here’s our look back at how Miranda’s fashion evolved to the most-copied style it is today while she was with Orlando. Side note: this is also our hint to the two that we think they’re so good for each other.

And they grew even more in love. The following pictures are from our shoe stalking at the 2011 Met Gala, which was the first time Miranda Kerr really made us sit up and take notice of her shoe game, thanks to the gorgeous Nicholas Kirkwoods on her feet.
