We can’t think of a better person to ring in the New Year with than Miss January Bridget Malcolm. The Australian-born model, who you might recognize from Victoria’s Secret 2016 Fashion Show, combines her quinessential blonde and blue-eyed looks with a zest for life that’s hard to ignore.
Raised in Perth, Malcolm has been modeling since she was scouted at 16, but she has a reflective side, sans glitter and mirror balls. She’s a classically trained oboist, and she says, “My dream is to transition into being a working classical musician.” The ardent vegan also has her health-and-wellness blog, where she shares tips and wisdom on living well.
Check out the photos from Bridget’s sparkly Playboy editorial, then watch her behind-the-scenes video here.
