There's no doubt that Miranda Kerr lives the luxe life: She's got a red-hot career and equally sizzling boyfriend, Orlando Bloom. But that doesn't mean the jet-setting Aussie is above grabbing a beer at the local bar.

The Victoria's Secret beauty admitted to the London Evening Standard that she tips back a frosty one while wearing vintage Chanel, and that her first memory of London is drinking a Guinness in a Notting Hill pub.

Though the model is quick to note that she isn't much of a drinker (good call, lager and lingerie might not be the best mix for a girl who poses in her skivvies for a living), Kerr sounds like just the person we'd want to raise our glasses with.

When asked what she would do if she were mayor for a day, she replied, "Give everyone a day off." (She has our vote!)

As for Kerr's coveted fashion tips, Bloom's better half scours the Portobello Market in London for vintage finds, stocks up on Topshop basics and loves Jimmy Choo.

The model has also been keeping busy developing her organic skincare line, Kora -- currently available exclusively at David Jones in Australia -- and that's on top of hitting the catwalks, of course.

After a recent runway turn at Prada, Kerr was quick to compliment the brand's designer, Miuccia Prada: "I admire her ability as a businesswoman and love everything about her clothing and accessories," she told the paper.

Turns out the 26-year-old may be quite the savvy businesswoman herself. Miranda gave kudos to Nicolas Ghesquière of Balenciaga, saying she admired his innovation.

And it appears that the public admiration resulted in a last-minute turn for Kerr on Balenciaga's Spring 2010 runway.

Her professionalism may have been inspired by one of the original Supers. Of the models before her, Kerr thinks most highly of Christy Turlington.

Though Miranda herself has been on the receiving end of some too-skinny criticism, she tells the publication that, "[Christy] achieved success with such grace and elegance and I respect what she stands for in terms of health and wellness." We'll second that!

Now, check out the return of healthy models on the runway with London leading the pack.
