On her vision of what health is:
I never dreamed I’d be posing in a bikini on the cover of Shape. It’s a complete 180 for me. It’s a magazine about what it means to be healthy. I used to see healthy as this image of what I thought perfect looked like—the perfect muscle definition, etc. But healthy now is how strong I feel. It’s a beautiful change, because if you’re strong and confident, it doesn’t matter what muscles are showing. Today I love my shape. My body is the shape it is because it holds my heart.
On her diet:
I’m a clean eater. I love chicken, fish, and vegetables and grains like quinoa, but I don’t eat red meat. I steer clear of processed foods. I also treat myself to the occasional dessert when I’m out with friends. But on the daily, I want to give my body what it needs to be the best version of myself. When I splurge, it’s usually on things that I’ve baked, because it’s satisfying physically and emotionally.

On rejecting the ‘Instagram model’ label:
“I work my a** off to make what I have and to prove that this is what I want to do. I want to be a model. I don’t think I would be where I am if people didn’t see something in me. I put all my modelling [photos] on my Instagram because I’m showing it to people. It’s not about me getting paid to model for things on Instagram – of course, sometimes we do get paid for things we do for Instagram and Twitter – but there is a line of calling someone an Insta model or an Insta star.”

Her feelings on exercise:
“I know I should exercise for mental reasons…I need to see Simone De La Rue; I always feel great after I see her. In L.A., there’s never any f~~~~~~ parking. So for someone who doesn’t already love working out, nothing’s selling you on it.”
On the one physical activity she can’t do:
“I can’t dance. I don’t take choreography very well. I will twerk.”
25 year-old Victoria’s Secret model Bridget Malcolm, who gets criticized on social media often for being ‘too skinny’, put on black swimsuits, strappy heels and comfy knits and posed for Mode Magazine this month.
