Victoria's Secret model Kylie Bisutti quits over religious beliefs10 févr. 2012
YOUNG beauty Kylie Bisutti is quitting Victoria's Secret at just 21 because modelling lingerie does not conform with her Christian beliefs.
Bisutti won Victoria's Secret Model Search in 2009 when she was 19, beating 10,000 other hopefuls.
"Victoria’s Secret was my absolutely biggest goal in life, and it was all I ever wanted career-wise," she told FOX411.
"I actually loved it while I was there, it was so much fun and I had a blast. But the more I was modelling 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 convicted about it."
Bisutti, from Simi Valley, California, was married shortly before getting her wings, and she said that was also a factor in her decision.
"My body should only be for my husband and it’s just a sacred thing," Bisutti continued.
"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."
Bisutti, however, is not giving up the catwalk just yet.
"I am still modeling but only with brands that respect my decision not to wear lingerie,” she wrote via Twitter. “I am also doing TV work now :)."
She is appearing with Jennifer Lopez in a new Kohl's commercial, and is slated to appear on a new TV show that hits the CW network in the fall, according to FOX411.
“It is a very hard industry to be in without falling into things you don't want to do," she said.
"I've fallen into many things that I wouldn't have wanted to do, it's a very tempting industry.”
