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

I have to agree she is pretty, but harldy new. She is definitely not breaking the mold. someone said it right VS would be breaking the mold if it was a minority. VS is great but could be SUPREME if they would actually have a model who is the REALITY of what is really out there. 5ft 4in maybe 150 lbs, with boobs and ass. then VS would be really breaking the mold. showing me a blonde blue eyed california girl is so over rated and played out in my book.

She’s gorgeous! Congrats Marisa!!

Also, those of you upset about VS & modeling not being diverse… obviously haven’t checked out ANTM or any other type of show or magazine. They are VERY DIVERSE.

And to those who think she should be shorter to break the mold.. I am 5’1 myself and it’s just a fact of life that runway models need to be tall- it just looks better. It’s like saying we need to let fat guys try out for quarterback. It defeats the purpose.

Don’t be jealous girls!! She is definitely model material! Way to go!

Danielle – Marisa doesn’t have blue eyes. They’re hazel. Be happy that an All-American surfer girl is an Angel now. :) Tyra was a minority and pretty curvy btw.

Of course she’s curvy – she’s got a great chest and butt . Nice curves, not flat and boyish figure. Many people confuse curvy with plain chubby or fat. That’s what those people call themselves as an excuse I guess. In many cases you look at those women and you want to say, honey that’s not curves that’s rolls of fat !

I love marrissa miller!! I have seen her in so many magazines and read interviews with her. I just love her freckles and her sweet smile!!

Renee on

Um, hasn’t she been a VS model forever? Is there something different about being an Angel? She’s always been in the catalogs.

jennifer on

Have any of you even seen the VS catalog, there are alot of minorities in there, Gisele, tyra, adriana…. you’re all jealous, she is beautiful

Jenn on

She’s absolutly beautiful! Does anyone know who the designer of her dress is!!? Its the same dress Audrina Patridge wore for the VMA’s! I LOVE it!

alice on

she’s not curvy, just very lean and well endowed

CJ on

Chrissy, are you her sister or something? LOL! Relax.

I’d have to agree with the statement someone made about girls aspiring to be a pair of boobs in heels. This was her dream come true? Really??

She’s ok. I’ve seen her around forever as well. VS has lots of minority girls, especially Brazilian.
