The lovely Miranda Kerr.

Miranda began modelling at the age of 13 after the family moved to Brisbane in Northeast Australia.

Not long after, she won a nationwide modelling search hosted by Dolly Magazine.

Miranda's life story sounds like a real-life fairy tale for beautiful young girls, but it is all true. After signing with a local modelling agency, she quickly won the Dolly contest and signed with a more prominent agency in Sydney.

Miranda encountered some flak for her early poses because some found them a bit too provocative for an underage teen. Kerr pointedly responded that she was fully clothed at all times in an ad campaign directed solely to girls her own age.

After becoming famous throughout Australia and Asia, Kerr graduated to an even larger market when she moved to New York City.

Scattered television appearances followed, such as on Project Runway, and a major contract with Maybelline put her into the biggest women's fashion magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Elle.

Even bigger things awaited. Victoria's Secret came calling, and Kerr was signed to a coveted spot as an Angel, replacing Gisele Bunchen. Miranda was the first Australian Victoria's Secret model.

With her fame rising, Kerr even began making some acting appearances on shows such as "How I Met Your Mother." Numerous other lucrative modelling assignments followed.

As if all this weren't enough, Kerr also somehow found the time to marry Orlando Bloom and have a wonderful baby boy, Flynn Bloom. Naturally, by looking at her now, you could hardly tell that she ever had given birth.

A Buddhist, Kerr apparently chants every morning and practices yoga and meditation.

Kerr credits her beauty to the use of coconut oil, but she clearly doesn't need much assistance in that department.

Below are some pictures of Miranda Kerr in leather, both on-the-job and simply out and about on her own time.

She appears to have a special affinity for leather shorts, which she wears with aplomb.

Nicole Scherzinger, "Pussycat Doll"

Don't Cha Just Love Nicole Scherzinger in Leather?

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com
Nicole Scherzinger.

Nicole Prescovia Elikolani Valiente Scherzinger (born June 29, 1978), known simply as Nicole Scherzinger, is an American singer, songwriter and "The X Factor" judge. She rose to fame as the lead singer of the "Pussycat Dolls" girl group in the 2000s.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole was born in Honolulu, Hawaii and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. She takes her last name from her stepfather, Gary Scherzinger, who adopted her, and Nicole basically was raised by her mother.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole is of Filipino descent on her father's side, and of half-Hawaiian and half-Ukrainian descent on her mother's (Rosemary Elikolani) side.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole began acting and singing as a child, and later sang in a low-profile band, Travis Meeks' "Days of the New."

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole also did traditional regional theater, honing her singing skills in musicals such as "Guys and Dolls" and "Showboat." Ultimately, she parted with the band and looked for a new gig.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole auditioned for WB show "Popstars," which purported to follow a band's formation and (hopefully) great success. The WB auditions required Nicole to move to Los Angeles for consideration and, if she was accepted into the group, filming.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Singing Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You," Nicole passed the audition. Along with Ivette Sosa, Maile Misajon, Ana Maria Lombo and Rosanna Tavarez, Nicole became a part of new group "Eden's Crush."

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Eden's Crush went to work and released their debut single, " Get Over Yourself," in March 2001. Due to the publicity around the Popstars television show, it debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 at No. 8 and the Hot 100 Singles Sales chart at No. 1.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The group's debut album, appropriately titled "Popstars," debuted at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart. It was an auspicious debut, and the group went out on tour. However, by the end of the year the whirlwind ride was over and the group disbanded due to financial issues at the record label.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole considered various offers during 2002 and 2003, including one to join the Black Eyed Peas, but she decided to strike out on her own. In August 2003, Nicole brought a demo CD to Arista Records in New York City, but a rare citywide blackout occurred while she was there which spoiled her chance. She continued looking around and took various side gigs.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Singer will.i.am of Black Eyed Peas remained a fan even though Nicole had turned down his offer to join his group. He put in a good word for Nicole with Jimmy Iovine, who was forming a new singing group based on his burlesque troupe, the Pussycat Dolls. Once again, Nicole went in for auditions.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Once again, Nicole proved that she was awesome at auditions. Along with Melody Thornton joining Carmit Bachar, Ashley Roberts, Jessica Sutta and Kimberly Wyatt, she became a member of the new Pussycat Dolls girl group.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole continued with occasional side projects. For instance, she covered "Breakfast in Bed" for the soundtrack to Adam Sandler comedy "50 First Dates." However, Nicole became the lead singer of Pussycat Dolls, and she began focusing her efforts on that.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Pussycat Dolls released their debut single, "Don't Cha," on April 19, 2005. Featuring Nicole's breathy vocals, it peaked on the Hot 100 singles chart at No. 2. The group released its debut album, "PCD" in September 2005. It was a big hit, with other popular songs such as "Stickwitu" and "Buttons."

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole then began writing and recording solo material. Her single "Come to Me" became her first solo top ten hit, but later efforts did not do as well. Despite having recorded an entire album of material, she abandoned her solo career, did not release the album, and for the time being returned to Pussycat Dolls.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Pussycat Dolls released a second album, "Doll Domination, on September 23, 2008. It did well, peaking at No. 4 on the album chart. It spawned two two twenty singles, "When I Grow Up" and "I Hate This Part," which actually were taken off Nicole's abortive solo album project. This led to a world tour, Doll Domination Tour, in 2009.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


By this point, Nicole was an established force in the industry. Pussycat Dolls disbanded, and she went on to various solo projects such as an appearance on television show Dancing with the Stars. Finally, in March, 2011, she released her debut solo album, "Killer Love." It was a minor success, and a single, "Right There," hit the top forty. Once again, it was time to look for a new gig.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


In June 2012, Nicole found her new gig: she was chosen to be a judge on Simon Cowell's "The X Factor UK." This lasted for a couple of years and was quite lucrative, though further attempts to establish a solo career came to naught.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Sony Music Entertainment signed Nicole to a multimillion dollar deal in January 2014, which led to a recording contract with RCA Records. This led to her second solo studio album, which peaked at No. 17 on the UK Albums Chart. It was not a success, and RCA dropped her.

Nicole Scherzinger leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Nicole then went back to doing random film, television and stage productions. She appeared on the West End in "Cats," did well on variety show "I Can Do That," appeared in "Men in Black 3," and co-starred as Penny Rivera in a television movie remake of "Dirty Dancing" (2017) on ABC (a role that Nicole reportedly had reservations about taking, because she feels that it encourages abortion, which she is said to oppose). Nicole remains a force in the music and acting fields, and continues her association with the "X Factor," having appeared in over 100 episodes as of 2017.

Anna Kournikova, Tennis Beauty


Anna Kournikova Serves a Leather Ace

Anna Kournikova celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com
Anna Kournikova.

Anna Sergeyevna Kournikova (born 7 June 1981) is a Russian-American professional tennis player. She is the second Russian tennis player on this blog, the other being Maria Sharapova. Both ladies are known for their modelling endeavors and raw beauty.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Unlike Sharapova, though, Kournikova, is more renowned for her off-the-court skills than for winning tournaments, and for the perpetual air of mystery that surrounds her.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


While she still plays the occasional exhibition match and doubles in World Team Tennis, Kournikova retired from the professional circuit over a decade ago due to a bad back.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Contrary to what many believe, Anna was a top player whose speciality was doubles.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Kournikova's career doubles record was 200-71 at the very highest levels of competition.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Kournikova won $3.5 million in prize money during her career, and they don't just give that money away. She played very well despite not winning any singles tournaments.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Many considered Anna a top player at the net, exhibiting a typical women's tour groundstroke style otherwise.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Many, many players would have loved to have achieved Anna Kournikova's record on the tour. At one time, Anna was ranked eighth in the world. It is easy to compare Kournikova's record to that of a relative handful of famous players who did better and denigrate her top-ten ranking, but it's extremely tough to achieve. It's even tougher for someone who primarily is a doubles specialist.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Reputed to be one of the prettiest natural beauties in the world, Anna grew up in Moscow and started playing tennis at the age of five.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Getting serious about it a couple of years later, Anna joined a prestigious tennis club and soon began playing juniors tournaments. Then, it was off to Florida to focus solely on tennis. She debuted at the 1996 US Open at age 15, and everyone noticed the fantastically beautiful Russian girl.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Kournikova's love life attracted almost as much attention as her playing. She was involved in a strange romantic triangle between herself and Russian hockey players Pavel Bure and Sergei Fedorov.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Whether or not she actually married Fedorov remains an open question. He claims that they married in Moscow and divorced in 2003, while she denies any marriage at all. That's how it rolls in Russia.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


In any event, whatever relationship Kournikova and Fedorov had did not last very long. In 2001, Anna took up with Enrique Iglesias, with whom she had filmed a famous music video ("Escape"). It also is unclear if those two ever got married, or if they separated, but the consensus appears to be that they never got hitched.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Regardless of a formal marriage, Kournikova and Iglesias apparently bought an expensive home together in Florida and remain together. Maybe.

Anna Kournikova celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


The Kournikova/Iglesias relationship is extremely private. They rarely going out together, and Enrique occasionally drops hints that something is in the offing regarding marriage (though that apparently has not happened as of this writing in 2017). Among the odder aspects of their relationship, Anna reportedly has never met Enrique's father Julio - after 16 years of being with him. Regarding marriage, Enrique was quoted thusly:
We're just as happy. There comes a point when you've been with someone for a certain amount of time that I believe that you are like, married. I guess the only difference is that we haven't walked down the aisle. I've never really thought marriage would make a difference. Maybe it's because I come from divorced parents, but I don't think you love someone more because of a piece of paper.
If you really want a picture of them together, hang out at The Palm restaurant in Beverly Hills. They show up there together once every few years. Otherwise... good luck. They apparently don't go out much together.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Anna quickly realized that her real strengths lay off the court. She promoted Berlei's shock absorber sports bras with its notorious "only the ball should bounce" billboard campaign.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Anna is famous for her long braids.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Anna was the among the first professional tennis players to have appeared in Sports Illustrated's Swimsuit Issue, in 2004, following Serena Williams in 2003. They since have been joined by Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Maria Kirilenko, Daniela Hantuchova, Tatiana Golovin and several others.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


People Magazine named Anna to its 50 Most Beautiful People of 1998 list, while FHM put it at the top - not just on the list, but at the very top - of its 2002 FHM's 100 Sexiest Women in the World.

Anna Kournikova celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Sports network ESPN, on the other hand, gave Anna a lot of publicity by labelling her a flop and a failure as a tennis player - while Anna happily deposited her match winnings and modelling income in the bank. An awful lot of people would love to be such a "loser."

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Anna served as a celebrity trainer on NBC reality show "The Biggest Loser" in 2010 and 2011.

Anna Kournikova leather celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Both a computer virus and a variation on the White Russian drink have been named after Anna Kournikova. These are among Anna's highest accolades, proving that she transcends the world of tennis.

Anna Kournikova celebrityleatherfashions.filminspector.com


Anna is extremely popular on Instagram, where she has close to half a million followers. Most would agree that Kournikova remains a stunningly beautiful woman a full decade after she stopped playing tennis, and she manages that due to a strenuous workout regimen.
