Miranda Kerr has grown into her femininity.

The Australian model used to favour simple, boyish clothes when she started out in the industry, but has been experimenting with more daring dresses and plunging necklines in recent years, and feels much more confident for it.

She told Lucky magazine: ''I grew into my femininity over the last 10 years. I'm a very tactile person - I like clothing that feels good against my skin.

''It's much more appealing to me to feel good in something than to wear a piece just because it's considered cool.''

Miranda, 31, cites her summer style staples as high-waisted jeans, silk blouses and sunglasses, and she is hooked on the ability to spy on others' clothing choices thanks to Instagram.

The former Victoria's Secret Angel said: ''Instagram got me interested in exploring social media. I'm a visual person, and it's a way that you can see life through other people's eyes. It's quite fascinating to see a different perspective.''

The brunette stunner - who has three-year-old son Flynn with her estranged husband Orlando Bloom - is constantly focusing on expanding her business empire, which includes her Kora Organics skincare range and most recently a collaboration with Royal Albert fine china.

She added: ''I've made an effort to be, like, what products do I really believe in and what is it that I'm passionate about? And so I diversify my brand.''
