Kylie Bisutti has asked God to forgive her for the career she chose as a lingerie model. Biscutti reached what many would consider the pinnacle of success as a model when she was chosen as the Victoria's Secret model of the year.
But the glamour girl said recently in an interview with ABC that God spoke to her and showed her the error of her ways. Consequently, she has abandoned her willingness to appear mostly naked and instead is reaching out to young women and their parents to convince them that a life of modesty is preferable.
She told ABC
"I don't regret anything that I have done because it's just the testament to how much I have changed since then."
Bisutti has written a book and started a new line of modest clothing called God-Inspired Fashion and is on a national speaking tour.
Exposing a bit of her niavete, Bisutti said that she was shocked when her images showed up on "pornographic" websites. Victoria's Secret was dismissive of her concerns, saying in effect that she should get used to it because all Victoria's Secret models appear on porn sites.
Bisutti has used her Victoria's Secret fame to start up her new businesses. It's a classic case of "do as I say, not as I do."
The model is unapologetic for her out-spokenness:
In a statement to ABC News, Bisutti's former agency said at no time has any model been called a "fat cow" and they said they had no knowledge of any of her photos being used on porn sites.
Kylie Bisutti continues to work with her fashion line team on new ideas -- every meeting starts with a prayer. Her line offers shirts, pants, blazers and scarves, all featuring Bible scripture.
"We believe he definitely put this idea on our hearts to have this Christian clothing line and to start it. It's just the way for me to kind of share my faith or you know share what I believe with other people."
Does God Care About Fashion?
At least one Evangelical Christian website says "yes."
God doesn’t make the issue of what a Christian wears the greatest issue in the Bible. To elevate it to such a place is dangerous. But He does raise the issue and lays down principles to govern what is appropriate for a Christian to wear. To apply these principles in our lives is not legalism, but evidence of love for and obedience to God and His Word.
The Bible seems to have a different view:
1 Peter 3:3-4 sayas
Do not let your adorning be external—the braiding of hair and the putting on of gold jewelry, or the clothing you wear— but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in God's sight is very precious.
Supporters of the idea that a christian can be fashionable and still abide by the word of God will cite the passage that says a woman will convey a “meek and quiet spirit” (I Peter 3:4)
Kylie Bisutti sums up her feelings this way:
My life used to revolve around fame, fortune, & my selfish heart. It now revolves around helping others and glorifying the amazing love who changed my heart: Jesus.
What do you think? Does God care about fashion? Is Kyle Biscutti a good christian woman? Would you take your daughter to hear her speak?
