Pardon the Fashion Week interruption, but the shots of Miranda Kerr for Victoria's Secret's bridal lingerie collection have us wondering (yet again) just how does she do it? The flawless supermodel plays the part of blushing bride for the retailer's intimates collection — and could make just about anyone want a piece of bridal lingerie. Sure, some of this set would be hard to spin as just some sexy underthings, like the "I do"-embellished tank and matching "bride"-emblazoned panties, but the lace-trimmed shorts, camisole, and bra (minus the veils and fascinators), and the striped satin pj's would be just as pretty in any girl's underwear drawer — regardless of relationship status. Not convinced? Click through to see every gorgeous look right here, then head over to Victoria's Secret to shop your favorites.
