Back in 2009 Kylie Bisutti won Victoria’s Secret’s first-ever national model search. She called it “a dream come true” and confessed to “always practicing my runway walk.” This dream turned into a nightmare for this aspiring model.
In an interview with the New York Post, Kylie Bisutti claims that she felt like “a piece of meat” working for Victoria’s Secret, and went on to say that she was required to “play down my marriage … because I was supposed to be flirting with everyone all the time.”
The model decided to quit the glamorous life of being a Victoria’s Secret “Angel” to honor God, and has written a book about everything she went through called I’m No Angel. Read below what Victoria’s Secret had to say:
“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.”
