Kylie Bisutti, Victoria’s Secret Model, Quits Career to Honor God, Husband

A Victoria’s Secret model has had a change of heart about her “flashy” career, and she credits it all to a growing understanding of the Christian faith.

Kylie Bisutti was on top of the world when she won at the Victoria’s Secret Runway Angel model search in 2009 — beating over 10,000 hopefuls for the title.

But just two years after winning her “wings,” the 21-year-old brunette has retired her lingerie, as she revealed the entire time she was struggling inside to reconcile her revealing career with her Christian faith.

“Victoria’s Secret was my absolutely biggest goal in life, and it was all I ever wanted career-wise,” Bisutti is quoted as saying by IBT. “But the more I was modeling lingerie, and lingerie isn’t clothing, I just started becoming more uncomfortable with it because of my faith. I’m Christian, and reading the Bible more, I was becoming more conflicted about it.”

Kylie, who married shortly before she won the model search in 2009, also admits her role as a wife and someone that was looked up to in her church body played a large part in her choice to quit.

“My body should only be for my husband and it’s just a sacred thing,” she said. “I didn’t really want to be that kind of role model for younger girls because I had a lot of younger Christian girls that were looking up to me and then thinking that it was okay for them to walk around and show their bodies in lingerie to guys.”

Despite her choice to stop modeling in lingerie, Bisutti reveals she hasn’t given up a career in entertainment entirely. She is featured along with Jennifer Lopez in a Kohl’s commercial, and is working on a new show for the CW.

How do you feel about Kylie Bisutti’s decision to give up her Victoria’s Secret career for her faith? Do you agree that following God wholeheartedly would warrant such a bold move?

    Hallelujah! the word works every time. I pray that she will grow from strength to strength and fulfill the purpose that God has for her life.

    Each Christian is on a different level with their walk with Christ and we are each called to do different things and are each convicted about different things. If she was feeling convicted about what she was doing, then it's great that she quit to honor God and her husband and others who look up to her. I don't think the lack of modeling lingerie was what we should look up to; it's the fact that she listened to her heart and stood up for what she believed in…..especially when it was not an easy choice to make. How many of us would give up our dream that we've worked so hard to achieve to honor others?

    I think its awesome and thank God for giving her strength to do that. Its not religion, its a relationship with the one and only true God. I'm so thankful she chose Jesus over the world. This world has nothing to offer because it will all go away, change. But God never changes!

    If only as christians, as we call ourselves we will be able to surrend our whole life and being to our creator and maker, God, then will we surely move this coruptible world forward. She is an examplary person and I know heaven will rejoce over her decision.

    Many people are conflicted in business, relationships and in the sort of thing Kylie Bisutti was doing *Runway Angel for Victoria's Secret). The important thing is to simply obey God. She can model is other ways – I suspect her husband is a lot happier now. It is a Biblical command for a woman to please her husband, and I am sure their relationship will soar. I believe that many women who misuse their sex appeal, whether in posing, exhibiting, or working in the sex industry actually want to show love and sacrifice themselves for the joy of another – perhaps that is why Jesus said that prostitutes will enter the kingdom ahead of the religious. They aim to please, but are not doing it in a godly or constructive way. When they learn the truth, they truly walk in it. I would like to see a story of someone leaving a lucrative career in sales because he was overstating his pitch to people and manipulating people into buying what he or she knows they do not need…

    She made the decision that she was called to do and that is just AWESOME!

    Now she has her 15 min and the cash she no longer needs to model. How is she going to get all the lingerie pictures off the internet? Too late. Her FB page has gobs of them too, guess she wasnt that ashamed huh?

    I had no idea who she was til this story broke. She seems not only stupid, but self-righteous. I hope every man in America jizzes to her pictures now since the thought will tick her off hahaha.

    Though we cant change our past, we sure can change and do something about the future. She said she was new to her faith and growing and learning in understanding and as she understood more, she chose the right direction in following God and honoring him and her husband!

    You are advertising a product that you would wear for your husband, I don't see the problem. I had this conflict myself at one time and I regret it. Although I am proud of her for at least caring! Few people respect themselves anymore. If you are gogo dancing, striping, doing fredericks of holywood etc. I could understand. She should of stayed in and become a wholesome example of that line of work, she would have been idolized!

    Awww how cute is that!
    kylie bisutti sacrificed her modeling career to be a good wife to her husband!
    i love victoria's secret, and she was my favorite model.

    Kylie should open here Bible and read Matthew 25:14 – the Parable of the Talents. Jesus talks about a master who gives his servants some money, and instead of investing it, one of the servants says, “I went away and hid my gift in the earth.” And he’s punished. So it’s a sin if we don’t use the gifts God has given us. And a body like that is definitely a gift. Trust me. I know these things.
