The goop Questionnaire:
goop beauty editors Jean Godfrey-June and Megan O’Neill love to ask—and
answer—questions. In their new podcast, The Beauty Closet, they’re doing both. To familiarize you with each week’s guest, we came up with a goop beauty (and life) questionnaire.
THIS WEEK WE’RE TALKING TO:
Miranda Kerr, founder and CEO, KORA Organics
Miranda Kerr, like many of us, loves a floral-print dress. She was reclining on a sofa in an especially pretty one when we came to call one morning while she was pregnant with her third child, and we ended up recording our podcast from her house.
The thing about Kerr that’s even more striking than her world-famous, exquisite beauty is her extreme…contentedness. She radiates a relaxed sort of happiness that feels very much like a cocoon. Or a cloud.
The pregnancy and its attendant maternal vibes may have been sending her comforting air even further off the charts than usual; we felt our racing, I’m-about-to-interview-a-CEO/supermodel heart rates drift easily downward. Birds were chirping through the open windows, the air smelled faintly of jasmine and rose (there were more than a few KORA bestsellers sprinkled around the coffee table), and family members—Kerr’s dad, who was visiting, and her one-year-old, Hart—flowed in and out.
We talked crystals, work-life balance, date nights, kindness, lots about family, lots about going organic, what it’s like to start a company with all your own money, and what her husband loves most in the shower:
And afterward, we had her fill out our beauty version of the goop questionnaire:
