Australian model Bridget Malcolm — a 24-year-old vegan with a weakness for chocolate chip cookies — will walk in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show for the second time on November 30. But there’s a lot more to this beauty than meets the eye. For one, she’s incredibly disciplined, something she no doubt picked up from over a decade practicing ballet and her classical training as an oboist. She’s as devoted to meditation as she is fitness and she’s also a newlywed. Want to know more? Check out the runway model’s answers to our quickfire questions.
