Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm is the latest to take to Instagram to defend her thin frame. On Wednesday, the 23-year-old beauty shared a photo of herself in a sports bra and leggings, writing, “Can we STOP with the skinny shaming please? I am extremely fit and healthy and am not in the slightest way anorexic. I have worked hard to look like this and am proud of my body. I may not be the curviest but I am a woman who has every right to look the way I do.”
The Australian model, repped by The Society, has walked for Topshop Unique, Ralph Lauren, Rodarte and Stella McCartney, according to Models.com.
“Maybe today take a look inside yourself and wonder why you feel the need to shame strangers over the Internet about their bodies. Peace and love to you all — let’s change the conversation.” she wrote.
Malcolm, who made her debut in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show last week, follows in the footsteps of another new Victoria’s Secret catwalker who used Instagram to shut down body hate: Gigi Hadid. During last month’s fashion week, Hadid took to her account to fire back at body-shamers on the social media platform who criticized the model for being too curvy.
