Claire O’Mahony: Model's homespun advice for women is dangerous, archaic and deeply annoying
Women had a light-bulb moment last week when Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr revealed how to keep a man happy. The 29-year-old, who is married to 'Lord of the Rings' actor Orlando Bloom, delivered a little homespun advice, courtesy of her nan.
"Let's bring it back to my grandma. What she said to me about men: men are very visual, don't forget that. So every day, just put a little make-up on, put on some nice underwear and you'll keep your husband," the model told American chat show host Craig Ferguson, who then declared her "the most awesome wife in America".
"A-ha!" women shouted in unison. "That's where I've been going wrong. I have been sitting around the house in a fleece onesie from Penneys with Sudocrem on my spots. It wasn't about trying to do more things as a couple, striving to achieve a better balance when it comes to domestic chores or not sighing when live snooker is on TV. All I need is some great lingerie and artfully-applied-but-not-too-obvious cosmetics and he'll never leave me. Marital bliss is within my grasp!"
