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

What is the comment, ‘just 5’8″ ‘ supposed to mean? I’m 5’8″ and I am usually the tallest woman anywhere I go. That’s breaking the mold?

I love Marisa Miller! she is my favorite model- it is so nice to see an angel with attainable proportions! hot hot hot! it’s about time they made her official.

Donna on

Well, I’m nataually thin, so I take offence to stick thin. I’ve never called a fat person, fat, or even break it to someone who thinks they are curvy, when they are just plain fat.
The model is pretty.

Marissa Miller is gorgeous! And its great that she doesn’t fit the stereotype of the normal model. But she does look way older than 30. Maybe closer to 40.

Tina on

She does not break the mold. Every girl at V.S is skinny, tall with big boobs. A plus size model would be breaking the mold.

If she is curvy I’m a cow, amzing the only thing curvy about her is the gigantic fake boobs.

victoria on

i think she’s totally sexy & pretty, but totally agree with sarah… shes not that curvy or average height at 5’8… she just looks like another VS model, that’s all.. nothing new.

toni on

i think she’s beautiful… i think this is the same girl that has been in the VS magazines for a while now, and she does an awesome job of modeling VS underwear, bras, swimsuits etc. and when i hear people say vulumptuious/curvy, i think of a women who is a size 8,9,12… not a size 0. you would think that they would want a women with a bigger bra size, so that this way she can fill out their bras a lot better. but you can usually tell the difference between real and fake breasts… she has real ones and that’s about the only thing that’s “large” or “curvy” on her. But – yes, congrats!

but i love adriana myself! she’s just extremaly beautiful as well.

To Alexa – When they are refering to Marissa being the first All American since Tyra Banks I believe that they say that they are talking about a born and raised American girl – not her “type” of beauty. Why do people feel the need to judge a person’s appearance? Is it not a personal preference? Not everyone prefers blondes but is it necessary to attack her physical attributes? Why take the time to write in such mean comments? That’s just rude. Some people find her attractive an others don’t.

I don’t think that VS has models with implants. Remember the time that someone called Tyra’s fake and she proved on national tv that they weren’t??? I could be wrong but if they do and Marissa is one of them then she has a great surgeon.

Since when is she ‘new’ to VS?!?!?! Marisa has graced the VS catalogs and runway for a VERY long time. I know I have seen her for at least 4 YEARS modeling Body By Victoria collection. I LOVE MARISA MILLER-Not since Stephanie Seymour have I been so excited about an all-American VS model. She’s an avid surfer and has killer abs to prove it!
