Supermodel Kim Alexis Advocates Modesty

Kim Alexis was one of the first American supermodels in the 1980s. She was on over 500 magazine covers, including Vogue and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. Then on January 21, 1990, Alexis asked Jesus to take control of her life. Now she counsels women to avoid some of her mistakes.

She says, "Many women are playing with fire in the way they dress. Dressing like a floozy tells the world, 'Look at me, want me, lust after me. I'm easy and you can have me.' Displaying intimate parts of the body is a form of advertising for sex."

"Dressing modestly tells the world, 'I respect myself and I insist on being treated with respect." Alexis says, "It is possible to be stylish and attractive without wearing something that is too short, low-cut, or see-through."
