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

She isn’t new. She’s been a model for Victoria’s Secret for years…her head looks big in the picture.

Marisa Miller is beautiful to be sure and seems very sweet, but I have to agree with the others who’ve pointed out that this girl is still rail thin. I’m sorry, but being shorter than average supermodel height and having larger than B-cup boobs does not a “curvy” girl make.

Just keep the blurb focused on her American-girl qualities and her excitement to be a new Angel; don’t pretend she’s breaking barriers. Furthermore, don’t pretend she’s breaking some mold at Victoria’s Secret! How can you cite Tyra Banks–who is actually curvy–as a former angel and then claim Marisa Miller is bringing some new aesthetic to their catalogs?

OkieLadie you are my hero! Well said and couldn’t agree more!

I’m going to have to get my wife to subscribe to VS again……Marisa is HOT

She’s beautiful, but been in VS for many years. Nothing new here. And if she’s considered curvy, 99% of the female population in America is fat.

She is pretty, but she looks like all the others. Same hair, boobs, nose, teeth. She and Heidi could be sisters. Exotic would be good, kind of like Kim Kardashian or Asian.

Flightbo – don’t you get Sports Illustrated??

How is she VS’s “newest angel”? I have seen her face (and body) in VS catalogs and online for years now. As far back as I can remember. Was she just promoted to one of their main models? And if so, who cares?

I love that they are using a “shorter” girl who is not a stick, and frankly, old for a model! A model getting a job like this at 30 used to be unheard of!

Sandi on

She’s precious, she’s American, she’s real, she’s beautiful. . .
