A Victoria Secret model is hanging up her wings. Kylie Bisutti, 21, made her name strutting the catwalk after winning a model search, out of 10,000 hopefuls, in 2009. So why give it all up after two years? She says she's quitting because modeling lingerie clashes with her Christian beliefs.
She also says that she believes only her hubby should see her body.
The California-born beauty told FOX41, "My body should only be for my husband and it's just a sacred thing."
She goes on to tell them:
"Victoria's Secret was my absolutely biggest goal in life, and it was all I ever wanted career-wise. I actually loved it while I was there, it was so much fun and I had a blast."
"But the more I was modeling lingerie, and lingerie isn't clothing, I just started becoming more uncomfortable with it because of my faith."
"It was pretty crazy because I finally achieved my biggest dream, the dream that I always wanted, but when I finally got it, it wasn't all that I thought it would be," she said.
"Especially being married I just wanted to keep my marriage sacred because divorce rates now in America are pretty high, and I just want to do everything I can to keep my marriage special."
Bisutti also felt like she wasn't being a good 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."
"My goal is just to be a better role model for the youth, I just want them to see me as somebody that they can look up to and somebody that's going to be dressing appropriately and I'm not going to get into things that I wouldn't want them to be getting into."
Bisutti says she plans on continuing modeling just with more clothes on.
What do you think about her quitting? Did her hubby pressure her?
