Victoria’s Secret is adding another Angel to its roster: Marisa Miller, the first all-American beauty to join the VS ranks since Tyra Banks‘ departure in 2005. “It’s like a dream come true. I’m so excited,” Miller tells PEOPLE. “It’s so cool too because my sisters and my mom and I are longtime customers, so to be an Angel is pretty surreal.” Miller, who walked in last years’ Victoria’s Secret fashion show and already shot several campaigns for the company, is also proud to break the mold in terms of body type — she’s curvy and just 5’8″. “When I started modeling, the more androgynous look was in, and I remember seeing on casting sheets, ‘No girls over a B-cup size,'” says the California native, 30, who is married to Hollywood producer Griffin Guess. “I was like, well, that’s not me! But I can’t do anything about it. I have to find my own niche.” In the end, she succeeded: “I am who I am, and I found people who love that.” Tell us: What do you think of the choice of Marisa Miller as the newest Angel? — Charlotte Triggs

To spck79, Missyvonne, and Katie………

If you think 30 is old (lmfao!!), I would LOOOOOVE to see pics of you guys at 30 so you could put her to shame. After all, she is so nasty at 30. Oh yeah, when you turn 30, please do America your civic duty and stay in your nursing homes so our little young tots don’t have to vomit at the site of seeing you slobber your way through a meal at a restaurant! Thanks for the laugh!!

That’s great! I once tried to get into modeling, and at 5’8″ I was told if I grew another 1-2″ I could get a “chance.” It’s nice to see someone who isn’t 5’10” and 110 lbs make it big!

Elizabeth….trust me when I say…..she wouldn’t remember you either, sweetie.
