(Chicago, April 2014)—Former Victoria’s Secret Runway Model Kylie Bisutti wants girls to know that true beauty is not what the media preaches. 30 Days to a More Beautiful You, releasing from Tyndale House Publishers in May (ISBN: 978-1-4143-9719-1), is a pocket-size devotional, priced at an affordable 99 cents, that Bisutti hopes girls will use to find the true meaning of beauty. The devotional gives girls a complete inner-beauty makeover with devotional readings designed to bolster their self-esteem and equip them to fight the battle that our culture wages against their self-image and self-worth.
Bisutti’s memoir, I’m No Angel (Tyndale House Publishers, May 2013), has touched thousands of lives and will now be releasing in softcover this month (ISBN: 978-1-4143-9189-2, $15.99). Bisutti added a new role, along with fashion designer and author, to her résumé this year. She became a mom! She gave birth to a beautiful, healthy baby boy, Jase, this winter. She also continues to travel and speak to women and teen groups across the country sharing her message with the ministry Get REAL inC.
Bisutti especially wants to reach out to young girls and encourage them not to try to live up to the unachievable standards that our world has set. She has seen firsthand the emotional and physical toll the modeling industry can take on young girls—from eating disorders to drug addiction to extreme insecurity. “Your outer appearance will fade away, but true beauty—in the form of kindness, humility, and love—will never fade,” Bisutti says. “Stop looking to the media and its illusions for your identity and start looking toward Christ.”
About the author… Kylie Bisutti is a former Victoria’s Secret Runway Angel. At age 19, she beat out 10,000 other girls to win a modeling contract with Victoria’s Secret. But upon achieving her lifelong dream, she realized she could not reconcile her work with her Christian beliefs, so in December 2011, she quit modeling for Victoria’s Secret and dedicated herself to being a role model for young girls. Her message focuses on the importance of dressing modestly, honoring your body, and recognizing that true beauty lies within.
