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

Ollie – she just married him about a year and a half ago and she has been with VS for many years. You guys really need to educate yourselves before you post.

Marissa is alright. I was a bit suprised that she wasn’t already an Angel, seeing that she’s got so much coverage in the VS catalogs. Either they give her WAY too much cleavage in the catalog photo shoots or she’s got a big bust, but she comes off looking more x-rated than the other VS models/Angels. I think she should just stick with Sports Illustrated, she’s not as versatile as the existing/former VS Angels.

I LOVE her! She is the prettiest model I’ve seen from VS. Congrats Marisa!

How come I’m the only one confused over whats so NEW about her? I’ve seen her in the catalog a 1000 times. I suppose being an angel is like the hall of fame for their models, but shes definitely not new to the line.

Sugrbean – I think People should not have presented her this way. It makes it look like she’s some newbie to VS and she isn’t! She’s so successful already, and yes that is kind of their “Hall of Fame”. I love her!!!!

To the person who mentioned that VS would never hire a plus-sized model…that’s because they don’t have anything to offer plus-sized customers. Us fatties just like to sit around in granny panties and soft cup bras with no support. So many companies are missing out on a huge (pun sort of intended) market by not offering plus sized clothing/intimate apparel.

this girl rocks! She has always been my fav in the VS catalogs for a long time. She was discovered surfing in CA, not binging and purging in hollywood. She can represent us CA surfer girls all day long. By the way, I’ve met her, and you couldnt find a more beautiful and sincere person. Congrats!!

by the way, for all you posting comments about how shes not that pretty or she looks to this or to that, wheres your modeling contract??

chrissy on

Willow – I agree! Thank God someone else here knows who she really is. She is my all-time favorite!

Rachel on

curvy – really? how can you say that you’re curvy when you’re a size 2? that’s ridiculous
