Victoria's Secret Model Quits to 'Honor the Lord'

Ad Feedback

Becoming a Victoria's Secret "angel" is a big deal in the modeling industry -- but it wasn't enough for Kylie Bisutti to forget her Heavenly Father.

The 21-year-old model recently decided to leave one of America's most well-known lingerie companies because showing off her body left her feeling convicted.

"I'm definitely going to pursue modeling, I just want to be more wholesome about it," Bisutti said Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America."

"The jobs that I choose are going to be honoring the Lord," she added.

In 2009, Bisutti was chosen over 10,000 others for an opportunity to walk the runway and claim those trademark Victoria's Secret wings.

At that time, she was a newlywed and just beginning to grow in her Christian faith.

Back then, Bisutti said she would "do whatever it takes" to win, but now her position has changed.

"I just became so convicted about wanting to honor my husband with my body," she explained. "It was more of just a heart issue for me."

Add to that a conversation Bisutti said she had with her 8-year-old cousin who she said really put things into perspective.

"She just looked at me and (said), 'You know, I think I want to stop eating so that I can look like you,'" the young model recalled. "That just broke my heart."

Now, Bisutti is on a new mission to honor her Christian beliefs and be a good example to others.

She said her husband has been very supportive of her decision, and even prayed about it.

"He's very thankful," Bisutti said, laughing. "Very, very thankful."
