Meet Australian model Bridget Malcolm, one of the fiercest models who stormed the runway at this season's Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. From the way she rocked her edgy outfit — which consisted of lace-up leather shorts, high-heeled booties, and studded accessories — to her perfectly playful pose, you'd never know it was her first time walking.

That's because Bridget's been in the industry for a long time. She's done campaigns for Burberry, H&M, Tommy Hilfiger, and more, and she works hard traveling the world during Fashion Month, too.

Now Bridget's standing up to her "skinny shamers" on Instagram, who have posted harsh comments on her lingerie shots and criticized her vegan diet and health. But Bridget's response is inspiring and positive.

Read her encouraging message in full, see some of Bridget's Instagrams that got a lot of buzz, and then follow her steps to the Victoria's Secret runway — all of which proves she's a bold It girl on the rise.

Bridget took a selfie and wrote up an inspiring caption as a response to her "skinny shamers."

When Bridget posted this shot to her account, she received many comments that read, "Kiss what?"

Bridget's sexy shot of her bright lingerie invited many "skinny shaming" comments. One follower wrote, "I want to get skinny but this is like kind of unhealthy."
