An Australian model has revealed what it takes to make it onto one of the world’s most coveted runway shows and it’s truly saddening.
Speaking to The Daily Telegraph ahead of her appearance on this year’s Victoria’s Secret show, 24-year-old Bridget Malcolm admitted that a lot is required from those wishing to be considered worthy of a place on the lingerie brand’s iconic runway show.
“I’m deep in it right now,” Malcolm said, explaining, “it’s a lot of twice-daily workouts, a lot of water, a lot of sleep and cooking all my own food so eating a lot of clean veggies and protein shakes.”

The Perth native also told Observer that she followed a similar routine ahead of last year's show.
"When Victoria’s Secret was on, I was training seven days a week," she said. "Sometimes I was leaving here (New York's Aerospace gym) at 8 at night and then I have a training at 8 in the morning."
Considered to be one of the most anticipated runway events of the year, Victoria's Secret unashamedly spend millions of dollars to produce a show unlike any other.

It's loud, garish, completely over the top and televised to boot.
But while participating models are encouraged to bring their unique personality to the playful catwalk, there's one thing they all share in common. The way they look.
They are statuesque tall, remarkably slim and toned to within a millimetre of their life.
