PHOTOS: Former Victoria's Secret Model Speaks at Trinity Church

Kylie Bisutti was at Trinity Evangelical Church Tuesday night.

Former Victoria's Secret model Kylie Bisutti spoke at Tuesday night. Over 400 women of all ages gathered at the church to listen to the Montana native, who spoke about finding inner beauty and choosing faith over fame.

Giving up her career as a Victoria's Secret model gave Bisutti happiness she was unable to find before. In fact, the moment she became a Victoria's Secret "Runway Angel" was the lowest point in her life, she said, and made her feel self-conscious. Bisutti made the decision to end her career as a model for God and her husband, she said. 

"It wasn't all it's cracked up to be," she told the crowd Tuesday night.

The model went on to say that everything you see in magazines is "photo-shopped" and fake. True beauty is not found in makeup and hair extensions, she said.

She took the opportunity to address the young girls in the crowd, and encouraged them to look inward, instead of focusing on their appearances for fulfillment. 

Co-sponsor of the event, the Massachusetts Family Institute (MFI), presented Bisutti with the first ever Esther Award for being a courageous and determined woman.

President of MFI Chris Mineau said, "It is absolutely, most appropriate." 

He believes that Bisutti made a "brave decision" by ending her career as a Victoria's Secret model and was thrilled that she was able to make it to the church. 

Lura Mineau, a Pastor at Trinity Church, credits Kim Incampo for Bisutti's visit. Incampo contacted Bisutti who had never been to Boston and was happy to make the trip.

"We are very grateful," Lura Mineau said.

Ashley, you did a wonderful job covering the Kylie Bisutti event. I appreciated how polite and professional you were. It was so nice to see how appreciative the young girls and teens were of Kylie's remarks and her availability to them at the end of the evening. Lura
