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

LOL.. Sarah you read my mind!! Alicia Keys, Mary J Blige, Salma Hayek, Kim Kardashian ( i hate to mention her name, too!! LOL) are curvy.. She is just tall with boobs!

She is the newest Angel. Hasn’t she been a mode for VS for years????

CJ – Nope, not her sister. haha I just get frustrated when people say “she’s not model material”. They obviously don’t know how successful she is. I think once you land SI Swimsuit cover, Maxim Hottest of 2008, several covers for various magazines and you’ve been with VS for years – you can say she’s model material.

Seriously! on

Seriously!!!………CURVY!! She is VERY thin and I’m sorry but I would never call her curvy, shes beautiful, and above average height – so to say shes breaking the mold…. give ME a break!

It’s about time they have a woman that is larger then a B cup. The world is not made up of small breasted women.

People is a little slow with this “exclusive” news. Marisa fans would know she was named an angel 6 months ago,and has been With VS for years.
She isn’t even the “Newest Angel”that would be Doutzen.Congrats to Marisa none the less.

Kim R. on

Thats what they call curvy??? Look at her arms and legs!!!! they are sticks! I don’t see any curves! At the chest, thats about it!!! They say the average womens size is a 14…well if thats true, then she hasnt broken any mold, because she is skinny with long blonde hair, like a barbie doll, your typical model type. Nothing different there. Makes this woman who has real curves upset that you would even think that you are “curvey!” But she is pretty, Most men will love her!

Erin on

Wow, why are so many of you mean?

Marissa Miller, 30, the new choice for Victoria’s Secret’s Newest Angel sounds very good! I wish her the best with that distinction! It’s interesting that she’s one of the new ones after Tyra Banks left in 2005!

For all those complaining about lack of minorities in modeling, get real! That’s what you see the MOST of because we must be politically correct!!! I’m not saying to not have any diversity but statistics will show that their are more minorities by percentage than in the general society. And quite honestly, I am sick of having it crammed down my throat that because I am an average white woman with dark blond hair and blue eyes, then I have committed a crime against all minorities. Yes, there are lovely women of all colors but too many of you minorities are so focused on your own agenda that you don’t realize how far to the extreme you go and you are more racist and elitist than I am supposed to be. It’s all about YOU! No, it’s all about US! And when we quit playing the race card to get special considerations and just earn it, then it will be an equal world.
