Early life and career beginnings

Miranda attended All Hallows’ School in Brisbane, Queensland in 2000, and studied nutrition and health psychology before pursuing a career in modeling.
She began modeling at 13 and won the 1997 annual Dolly magazine competition. Her bathing suit shoot with the magazine stirred controversy with the media raising concerns about the glorification of young girls. Miranda later clarified that she was fully clothed.
In Sydney, Miranda signed to chic Management and did a series of beachwear ads for Australian surf chain Billabong which got her some commercial exposure.

She proved herself as a fashion model, signing a contract with Maybelline New York and becoming the first-ever Australian Victoria’s Secret Angel in 2007.
In 2007, her career was burgeoning, and she made a guest appearance in the CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother alongside fellow Victoria’s Secret Angels. During this time, she signed a six-figure deal with Australian department store David Jones and appeared on British Harper’s Bazaar cover.
Miranda shot several campaigns, including a spring/summer ad campaign for XOXO, Mango, Reebok, Wonderbra, etc.
She later signed with IMG Models with her already successful career trotting more runways for brands like Prada, Balenciaga, Dior, Lanvin, Chanel, Loewe, Viktor & Rolf, John Galliano, and several others.
