    No I m sorry but just no.I think one of the reasons why I hate this book so much is because of my values Whenever I read excerpts that put virtues like modesty and purity on an untouchable pedestal and shames the aspects of what makes us feminine, it makes me feel sad I believe in celebrating our sexuality Why should we cover that up Further, Victoria s Secret is a lingerie line It s obviously going to beautify its models for the audience in order to sell their products that s just bu No I m sorry but just no.I think one of the reasons why I hate this book so much is because of my values Whenever I read excerpts that put virtues like modesty and purity on an untouchable pedestal and shames the aspects of what makes us feminine, it makes me feel sad I believe in celebrating our sexuality Why should we cover that up Further, Victoria s Secret is a lingerie line It s obviously going to beautify its models for the audience in order to sell their products that s just business But it knows how to balance the fine line between objectification and sexualisation Second of all, the implication comes along that a supermodel can t be a role model Ummm, why the hell not From Gisele Bundchen to Ashley Graham to Winnie Harlow, there are hundreds of women out there who are breaking rules and diversifying the field and marking their name against the register.It s only my personal opinion though I m not rebelling against how the book was written, only how certain aspects of the modelling world are portrayed There are some good points brought up about the cut throat world of modelling but it s the same with any other entertainment industry singing, acting etc And airbrushing is a controversial issue about which I would have liked to have heardanecdotal evidence from the author herself So on an ending note, good for you Kylie It s great that you ve found happiness But I really didn t like your book This is practically another one of those cases where,It s not you It s meCan t read a single paragraph without just cringing.P.S I did watch Kylie s one time stint on the Victoria s Secret runway and she looked extremely happy to have for the opportunity On top of the world, as she says But since she obviously regrets it, I think that opportunity would have gone to better use for one of the other ten thousands girls that she beat P.S.S Victoria s Secret released a statement relating to Kylie Bisutti s memoir saying Ms Bisutti has made numerous fabrications and misstatements of fact regarding her brief association with Victoria s Secret In 2009, Ms Bisutti won an online amateur modeling competition and hasn t worked for us since that year The prize for the winning contestant was the unique opportunity to a one time walk in the 2009 Victoria s Secret Fashion Show Ms Bisutti also participated in a swim photo shoot in 2009 That was the extent of Ms Bisutti s involvement with Victoria s Secret She was never a Victoria s Secret Angel as defined by the terms of our Angel model contract And contrary to Ms Bisutti s claims, she was never offered any subsequent modeling contracts or opportunities with Victoria s Secret despite her multiple appeals for further work She has repeatedly fabricated her work experience with Victoria s Secret including a relationship that simply did not exist I don t know what to believe but at least I can content myself with hopefully knowing both sides of the story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir Kylie s story was fascinating from the beginning It was honest and heartbreaking at times There was a time when a modeling agency tried to recruit me and I gave them my information and when my mother answered the phone one day, she promptly hung up on them saying I wasn t interested in that At that time I was devastated and hurt Reading this account made me ever so thankful for my late mother protecting me from this lifestyle The real hero in this story is I thoroughly enjoyed this memoir Kylie s story was fascinating from the beginning It was honest and heartbreaking at times There was a time when a modeling agency tried to recruit me and I gave them my information and when my mother answered the phone one day, she promptly hung up on them saying I wasn t interested in that At that time I was devastated and hurt Reading this account made me ever so thankful for my late mother protecting me from this lifestyle The real hero in this story is her husband he stood by her, allowed her to make decisions to compete in the Victoria s Secret Angel competition even though he knew it might be to the detriment of their new marriage He prayed and prayed her for to see the light When she finally did, he was elated and grateful to God If it wasn t for him, I m not sure Kylie would have been able to give this testimony I hope this book reaches the younger girls of today to help them see their true worth I m excited about Kylie s ministry and hope the Lord blesses her and her family with great success

    Wow What a book I first heard about Kylie when she was on Good Morning America sharing her story of how she walked away from being a Victoria s Secret model to becoming a role model But in I m No Angel, Kylie goes deeper into the story She shares about the negativeness and dark sides of modeling, of how she compromised her convictions by making excuses and how the Lord changed her heart.It is also intriguing to her what her husband, Mike, thought of the entire thing Not all guys want Wow What a book I first heard about Kylie when she was on Good Morning America sharing her story of how she walked away from being a Victoria s Secret model to becoming a role model But in I m No Angel, Kylie goes deeper into the story She shares about the negativeness and dark sides of modeling, of how she compromised her convictions by making excuses and how the Lord changed her heart.It is also intriguing to her what her husband, Mike, thought of the entire thing Not all guys want their wives parading down runways with next to nothing on.I highly recommend this book Yes, it can get graphic with some of the things Kylie experienced like SEEDY photographers , but it is a story that every girl needs to hear I know myself, I struggle with body image sometimes especially when I compareuhcertain parts of myself to models However, there is so muchto life than having the perfect body It simportant to have a better heart.So read Kylie s story You will be glad you did

    Kylie Bisutti has such an awesome story, I was excited to pick up this book.This book talked about sex a little too much for my taste, but it was a big part of what gave the book it s strength I have never read a book which convinced me so completely that outward beauty is hallow as much as this one did I would not recommend this to anyone under 16, but if you struggle with self image or jealousy of girls with perfect bodies, this book is for you.I would recommend caution because this book d Kylie Bisutti has such an awesome story, I was excited to pick up this book.This book talked about sex a little too much for my taste, but it was a big part of what gave the book it s strength I have never read a book which convinced me so completely that outward beauty is hallow as much as this one did I would not recommend this to anyone under 16, but if you struggle with self image or jealousy of girls with perfect bodies, this book is for you.I would recommend caution because this book does include mentions of nudity, modeling being about selling sex, girls struggling with anorexia and bulimia, losing virginity, several stories of guys acting inappropriately, and stories of modeling lingerie.Overall, there was a bit much content for my tastes, but it was such a potent book on where we need to be seeking our true identity and beauty

    Meh, this book was ok, but not all that interesting Kylie is very young at the beginning and at the end of this book There wasn t much growth either not emotionally or spiritually It also seems like she just moved her search for celebrity from one venue to another.I also have no idea how she is a role model now.It doesn t play at all into my review of this book, but does putting a bible verse on a skin tight t shirt make it less of something to induce men to look at a body

    I just picked this off the shelf at the library and read it pretty quickly It reads pretty fast and held my interest I don t know anything about the modeling world, nor am I usually interested Since the cover leaflet said she and her husband live in Montana, I decided I MUST read it Kylie Bisutti tells her story of coming to Christ in high school, but still pursuing her aspiration to become a super model Finally, when the two worlds collided soon after being selected a Victoria Secret angel I just picked this off the shelf at the library and read it pretty quickly It reads pretty fast and held my interest I don t know anything about the modeling world, nor am I usually interested Since the cover leaflet said she and her husband live in Montana, I decided I MUST read it Kylie Bisutti tells her story of coming to Christ in high school, but still pursuing her aspiration to become a super model Finally, when the two worlds collided soon after being selected a Victoria Secret angel, she tells of walking away to pursue becoming a Proverbs 31 woman.I was impressed with her genuineness She explained the struggle she had reconciling the demands on her body the industry imposed, and what the Bible says about true beauty She is honest and forthright, and presented a very readable account.This would be an excellent book for young women and teens who struggle with self confidence and body image She is bold about her faith without being preachy or condemning Others may be challenged by it too, just in living for Christ in a frequently hostile work environment

a Victoria s Secret model winner She described how she met and married her husband, Mike and the effect her marriage had on her career The book disclosed how she left Victoria Secret and became a Proverbs 31 wife She began modeling in Las Vegas at the age of fourteen and she quickly learned that sex sells and the industry knows that men are drawn to this Throughout the years, she has witnessed mischievous individuals trying to entice young girls into human trafficking in Thailand, girls struggling with eating disorders, and being asked to dress immodesty She has also seen hair designers cutting off models bangs, hair extensions being pulled out and taking out hair roots, hair burned by the flat irons, and models having to wear Saran Wrap The hair designers and photographers are brutal and relentless in their pursue of obtaining a certain look for their photos All for the price of beauty.Kylie is very candid about her experiences with modeling and her painful past including her mistakes She shared her personal struggle with fitting into the mold of the world and the high demand of beauty At one of the photoshoots, she couldn t find all of her clothing and she asked an intern where the rest of her outfits was located The interned yelled across the studio and asked, Hey, does anyone know where the rest of the big model s clothes are Page 105 She only weighed 115 pounds Satan tempted her to check out the other model s labels on their clothes and she noticed that most of the girls were a size 0 or a size 00 She realized that she was only a size 2 and she was considered a big model.She also opened up about being a conversation she had with her agent and she couldn t understand why she kept being asked to do test shoots Her agent stated her harsh opinions of why she couldn t go to Fashion Week castings She declared that, It s because you are a fat pig right now You are a cow, and I don t want any of my clients to see this way Your thighs are too big Your butt is too big You re just big Page 106 Eventually, Kylie begin obsessing over her body image and the way she looked She was determined to lose weight Her agent told her over the holidays to lose two inches off your hips and two inches from your waist She finally got down to 108 pounds and she began to get to dophotoshoots Then she dealt with trying to maintain her current weight and be skinny.The book also included a thirty day True Beauty Makeover section at the end of the book It had a scripture verse, a small story, two questions, and a true beauty tip for each day.I loved the transparency that Kylie displayed throughout the book She exposed the hurtful comments that she has received and the past mistakes she couldn t undo I liked how she was honest about losing her virginity to a boy in high school and how she regretted that choice He started by quoting movie lines from The Notebook and he asked her to take a drive with him and he even put on a love soundtrack that she made him Then he processed to pressure her and said he wanted her to be his first, which later the rumors were he already was having sex with another girl That guy was a baiter I especially liked how she stated the warning signs and the red flags she should have seen from the guy She shared how she came to know Christ and how he forgave for her decision This part of her story could vastly assist young girls in learning from the effects of making small compromises and the lines some guys will use on our girls.I would recommend this outstanding book to any young girls as well as older women who have low self esteem and they are obsessing over their body image Women with eating disorders would immensely benefit from the personal stories that Kylie Bisutti has experienced Even men can benefit from reading this book and they can began to comprehend the extraordinary demands the industry is putting on our young girls and women in general Her story was heartbreaking and very eye opening on the issues of striving to look like an image on a cover of a magazine or a TV screen I m a guy and her courageous story was inspiring and it made me recognize the importance of protecting my future daughters and instilling in them, the way God sees them It also showed me how I m supposed to treat my future wife I also loved the encouraging story about how she met her husband and how she is trying to be a Proverbs 31 wife This served as a great reminder to me that God is already working behind the scenes and is writing a love story between my future wife and me, even if I haven t met her yet This book is a wonderful encouragement to young girls and women on focusing on true beauty which comes from the inside If you re looking for a phenomenal gift to give to a young girl, then this book is the one to give It has the potential to change their life and I m praying it does Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book

    Kylie Bisutti began modeling professionally around age 13, and six years later won a Victoria s Secret modeling contest on national television One year later, she announced that she would be leaving the modeling industry permanently due to conflicts with her Christian beliefs.I remember seeing the news stories, and finding the idea so unbelievable as to be laughable How does one even become a lingerie model while professing christian beliefs The two seem fairly incompatible As always, the tr Kylie Bisutti began modeling professionally around age 13, and six years later won a Victoria s Secret modeling contest on national television One year later, she announced that she would be leaving the modeling industry permanently due to conflicts with her Christian beliefs.I remember seeing the news stories, and finding the idea so unbelievable as to be laughable How does one even become a lingerie model while professing christian beliefs The two seem fairly incompatible As always, the truth iscomplicated than it appears, and in this book Kylie is given a platform to tell her story, uncensored by George Stephanopolis My critiques of this book are few, and make no real difference to Kylie s message First, the writing style is about what you would expect from someone who finished high school through online courses while holding down a job and never attended college Even with a co writer parts read like a diary from junior high This is not a high literary effort, it is a heart felt one Second, even with Kylie s sometimes uncomfortable honesty, it becomes fairly evident that this is far from a tell all This is enough to get her point across, and as such, there are some things which go completely unexplained, and moments that could be described as plot holes For example, we don t discover that her husband whom she married at 18 19 years of age is divorced with a son and is significantly older than her until nearly the end of the book While that information is relevant to a biography, it isn t relevant to her message of internal beauty, so the information gets placed out of context and in a haphazard manner Third, Kylie never really discusses her personal emotional damage resulting from working in the industry She gives plenty of examples of the ways that others were harmed, and even tells stories of her own brushes with eating disorders, crash diets, and abuse, but the book leaves out the emotional impact of the occurrence then and the scars now It isn t that I don t empathize or feel compassion for what she, and other models, have gone through, and I certainly don t think that they somehow deserve it, just that this book doesn t connect the heart to the situation Kylie comes across looking as though she left the modeling world unscathed with a great husband and a healthy figure Maybe it is too soon to tell, or maybe Kylie didn t feel ready to discuss that aspect of her experiences, but I wonder if some readers might walk away with the impression that, while modeling isn t christian , it isn t necessarily a harmful lifestyle.Kylie is a beautiful girl who had it all by the world s standards and left it behind to follow her heart for God That takes a lot of character And for other young women who struggle with their appearance on a daily basis, it is comforting to know from an insider that the beauty they see touted on television and in print ads is artificial to the point of physically impossible
