A top Victoria's Secret model has spoken out about a photographer who forced her to pose nude on the set of a photo shoot for a "high profile" magazine, Fox News reported. Bridget Malcolm recalled how the incident left her in tears and racked with feelings of guilt. This is how the year-old top model found herself posing nude for the shoot despite feeling "intensely uncomfortable" and hesitant. Initially, Malcolm said, she was assured there would be no nudity involved in the shoot; however, the unidentified photographer insisted she pose nude "for editing purposes" until she gave in. Later that evening, Malcolm said they had moved the shoot outside when the photographer again insisted she strip down despite there being people watching them from the street.

However, the nightmare gig only got worse. Malcolm also described how the shoot was moved outdoors and the photographer, who remained unnamed, showed little mercy or sympathy.
