I’m No Angel by Kylie Bisutti

I'm No Angel

I’m No Angel – Book Review

In 2009, 19-year old Kylie Bisutti made headlines around the world when she competed against over 10,000 contestants in a nationally televised reality competition and won the coveted title of Victoria’s Secret Runway Angel. Having entered her first competition in the fourth grade, Kylie was an experienced international runway model who believed that winning this title would catapult her to the top of her field and make all of her dreams come true.

Kylie was wrong.

In December 2011, Kylie made headlines again – but this time, it was for God.

Kylie rocked the modeling world and set off a firestorm when she walked away from her multi-million dollar life of fame and fortune because God opened her eyes to the fact that her modeling career was not compatible with her Christian faith.

In Kylie’s words:

I Quit Victoria’s Secret To Be A Proverbs 31 Wife!

I’m No Angel – From Victoria’s Secret Model To Role Model by Kylie Bisutti is the compelling memoir of a young woman who lived the modeling life that many young girls aspire to –and learns that it is all a dangerous illusion. In her book, she reveals the truth behind the modeling industry and shares her story with honesty and integrity. Her story was inspiring and I was hooked from the moment I opened the book – I did not want to put it down.

As if her story was not reason enough to read this book, Kylie includes a devotional entitled The Master’s Makeover – 30 Days to a More Beautiful You at the end of the book. The focus of these devotionals is on developing your inner beauty, which includes renewing your heart, body, mind and soul.

I highly recommend this book.

      Thanks JP! I hope you have a chance to read the book. Such a powerful story! One thing that really struck me is how much God protected her during all of this. Even in the midst of the few harrowing encounters she shares, her story could have been so much worse, were it not for the fact that she tried to uphold to her Christian beliefs throughout her modeling career the entire time!

      Have a great weekend!

    In our current society, this certainly goes against the grain. It sounds wonderful!

    Hi, I’m stopping by from the linkup at OnlyABreath.
    I had never heard of Kylie until recently. (Mainly because I don’t have TV so unless I actively go searching for headlines a lot passes me by LOL)
    HOWEVER – what an inspiration! I think it is such a battle we women face, the pressures of the culture and the calling of the Father.
    Liked your review and I do believe I will be adding this to my reading list in the future. 🙂

      I’m delighted to meet you RaZella – thanks for stopping by! Thank you for your kind words re: my review!

      I was unfamiliar with Kylie’s story until I read the book. I was intrigued by the description and took a chance on it.
      I’m SO glad I did! I gave the book 5 stars on GoodReads.

      Kylie’s message in this book is SO inspiring and timely – it’s something every young girl should read!
