Kylie said she wanted to pursue “more wholesome” modeling that would be more in line with her faith. Later, she changed her tune and left the runway behind forever, saying she was “being paid to strip down and pose provocatively.”
She got tired of unwanted attention from photographers and male models during photo shoots, according to interviews. Bisutti also said that she and other Victoria’s Secret models were supposed to keep personal relationships quiet, unless they were dating celebrities.
