Miranda Kerr and Evan Spiegel have only been married for a couple of months, but they've already figured out how to best compliment each other.

In an interview with Net-A-Porter magazine, the former Victoria's Secret model opens up about their relationship and shares marriage advice given to her by her grandmother. "My grandma taught me that men are visual and you need to make a little effort," she says 'with a wink'. "So when [Evan] comes home, I make sure to have a nice dress on and the candles lit. We make time to have a nice dinner together." (It's not for everyone, but hey, whatever keeps them happy.)

This isn't the first time that Kerr has explained how cooking is a big part of her relationship. According to Vogue, the supermodel-turned-cosmetics-mogul even cooked a meal on her wedding day. In the morning, she made a slow-roasted chicken scented with turmeric and lemon (which is apparently one of the Snapchat founder's favorite dishes), and then had the caterer replicate her menu for the other 40 guests.

Kerr also says that she likes to find a balance between the gender roles in the couple, saying, "At work, I’m like, ‘We need to do this!’ and, ‘This needs to happen!’ But at home, I slip into my feminine and empower Evan to be in his masculine." When the writer asks what "slip into your feminine" means, Kerr replied, "Just be more in my feelings. More gentle, leaning back. It’s a nice balance."

Speaking of work, Miranda is now fully invested in Kora, the organic skincare line she started in 2009. The Australian model says that she's put all other projects on hold for the time being. "Evan inspired me," she says. "He said, ‘Why are you spending your energy working for other companies when you should be focusing on your own? You need to take a risk. If you believe in this, put everything into it.’"

It seems like the young pair is poised to be the next power couple of the business world.
