The InStyle Women of Style Awards took place yesterday at Carriageworks in Sydney, with Miranda Kerr receiving the highest honour – the readers’ choice award.
The beautiful mother-of-one held back the tears as she was presented the prestigious award by Sally Obermeder.
Paying tribute to her Australian roots, Miranda dressed in a floor-length, Grecian style, powder-blue dress designed by fellow Aussie Carla Zampatti.
With a plunging neckline and draped, racer back, Miranda let the dress do the talking with simple Hollywood-red lips and her hair scraped back into a ponytail.
As Miranda graced the red carpet with her mother Therese and grandmother Anne, she was clearly excited to be back on home turf, twirling for the cameras to show off the back of her Marilyn Monroe-esque dress.
Although hubby Orlando Bloom couldn’t be at the awards, he must be proud; not only did his wife win The Woman of the Year award, but also scooped a joint win for the Beauty category, with her beauty range Kora Organics.
