    Model Chooses Faith Over Victoria’s Secret

    Has your love for God made you change your ways? For model Kylie Bisutti, it led her to give up her dream.

    Bisutti’s goal was to be a Victoria’s Secret model. In 2009, that dream came true when she won a model search. However, as time went on, her faith made it difficult for her to model underwear. She felt uncomfortable and decided to quit modeling immodest clothing.

    “Victoria’s Secret was my absolutely biggest goal in life, and it was all I ever wanted career-wise” (Kylie Bisutti).

    Being a Christian means more than just believing in God. It means believing in Jesus Christ, believing that Jesus is the son of God, and accepting Jesus as your Lord and Savior. In addition, there are biblical teachings we need to follow and values we should adhere to, including modesty.

    Let’s not forget the effects of what a Victoria’s Secret model does. Often, when a man views a woman in sexy lingerie, he becomes lustful. That’s the intent. Sex sells, right? And the results are effective. But in Matthew 5:28 it reads, “But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.”

    As Christians we are not perfect–we make mistakes. But once we recognize the mistake, we need to get right with God and strive to be better. This is what Bisutti feels. But she goes further by recognizing her position as a role model.

    “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” (Kylie Bisutti).

    Bisutti’s story is very similar to that of Project Inspired founder Nicole. As you probably know, Nicole’s also a model and she too chose to stop posing in controversial shoots because of her faith. Take a moment to read Nicole’s story if you’re not familiar with it.

    I feel that this and Nicole’s story are very inspirational because they recognize that as Christians, we have a responsibility. Neither of them gave up on their dreams–they just made sure that they glorified God while fulfilling them.

    Ladies, I do pray that you all strive to fulfill your dreams, but like Bisutti and Nicole, I pray also that you please and glorify God as you do so.  After all, who makes your dreams come true in the first place?

    What do you think about Bisutti’s decision? Have you ever given up a dream or modified it so that it glorifies God?

    1. Another story of a Victoria Secret model choosing the Lord over lingerie!! It is so cool to see that both Nicole and Kylie have chosen God over a carrier, and having that lead them into gigs that would be more godly. Thanks you Nicole for such a beautiful example of a role model! 😀

    2. I totally understand why Kylie Bisutti gave up on her dream. We all have dreams, but some are not what God wants us to chase after. I’m very proud of her. I struggle with letting go of human desires(just like everyone else), but I too need to let go of my human desires to actually be faithful to God.

    3. I use to want to be a Victorias Secret model this lead into my eating disorder and insucrity about not being tall.Then I met my husband and he said he never wants a girl whose a model.He helped me find God and I later deciced I will never model for them or any company.I don’t want to be an object.

    4. modified my dance teams dance because it was suggestive. we did sexy hand movements and i stoppped in the middle of practicing and i said “Stop! I can’t do this! I don’t care if we lose the tournament, i just cant do this dance. its againsts my belief system andyou guys can continue this, but i will sit out. ” they changed the whole thing. they changed the song fireball to call me maybe, they changed all of the choreography. and the other christian girls came up to me later and said thank you. and guess what. WE WON THE DANCE COMPETITION!

    5. i had to give up region band when i first became a Christian…. i had to go through some failures in my passion in order to grow in Christ… but now i realize that God wants me to use my talent for HIS GLORY!
