Take a good look at Miranda Kerr. Go on, look closely. Can you believe the poor girl actually suffers insecurities about her appearance?

So Kerr says in the June issue of Elle magazine. In fact, the leggy Victoria's Secret model -- who is dating heartthrob Orlando Bloom -- has even penned a book about body image called "Treasure Yourself" (please, no "chest" or "booty" jokes).

"It's about encouraging young women to embrace their individuality," the 27-year-old Aussie beauty says of her tome, due out later this year. "You may think it's easy for me to say, but we all have insecurities. It's important, as women, to get past all of that and let our talents shine."

And the dimpled face of Victoria's Secret's new Heavenly Flowers fragrance does just that inside the magazine, where she steams up the pages in just-out-of bed hair and some of the season's hottest styles, including a tie-dyed Blumarine silk top with gold-and-crystal limited-edition cuffs from Elie Top for Baccarat, and a flesh-colored Victoria's Secret high-waisted brief with a Marc Jacobs satin crepe shirt and Giambattista Valli silk and python pumps.

"It was great, because it was the Elle body issue," Kerr, who planned to become a nutritionist before switching to modeling, said of her fashion shoot, for which she was photographed by Mariano Vivanco.

"It was about embracing yourself and about embracing your curves... and I really love that."
