About Bridget Malcolm
After walking her second-ever Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in 2016, Bridget Malcolm promptly collapsed on the floor. It wasn’t a result of exhaustion but an act of exuberance. With it she proclaimed, “That’s a wrap!”
The Australian model, who happens to be close friends with fellow Playmate Kelly Gale, is as appreciated in the industry for her upbeat energy as she is her delicate features, ocean-colored eyes, and long limbs (she measures 5'10" barefoot).
Malcolm was born in 1991 in Perth, where she spent much of her childhood on the beach, doing ballet, and becoming a classically trained oboist, which she acknowledges as “not an expected talent.” Indeed.
Getting signed to a modelling at age 16 deterred Malcolm from studying at a convervatory and pursuing music full-time. She soon nailed contracts with Ralph Lauren, Maybelline New York, and Victoria’s Secret. Other facts about Malcolm: She’s really into reading books (“I don’t own a TV,” she’s said), currently resides in New York City, and has been known to dork out and play the Game of Thrones theme song on her oboe – and not without a sense of humor.
“Passionate about health and wellness,” Malcolm is a outspoken vegan, cemented after she watched a series of PETA documentaries in 2009. Since then, she champions “progress over perfection,” maintaining it’s the small changes we make in our daily life that amount to a high quality of life. Her personal blog features holistic health and workout tips and vegan recipes.
In 2016, noted fashion photographer Russell James proclaimed, “I think she’s going to become a major success in a very short time.” We happen to think so, too.
