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 really dislike her as a model. She’s just incredibly thin with huge fake melon boobs. I never buy any bra or swimsuit she wears b/c the clothes look so distorted on her that I can’t ever tell if they would look good on me.

Bad choice VS. Stick with girls like Adriana and Miranda.

LMAO!! Women really never get over their grade school days, do they? And the ones that are the most vicious, hateful and condescending, are the fugliest of all. There’s nothing wrong with this girl at all. Although, models typically are way too thin, she doesn’t have bones jutting out of her skin. It’s about time VS had an All American girl again. And hooray for models that have bigger than an A cup without having to use a GEL-FILLED pretender that disappoints men once it’s revealed. Go Marisa!

I think Marisa is pretty. Marisa will be able to walk the thin line of being liked by women and loved by men. She does remind me of Jessica Simpson. I find her to be far from curvy. Marisa is like all other Hollywood figures – small body/big head…but that doesn’t take away from the fact that she is pretty and will obviously do well with Victoria Secrets – good for her!

I have seen better. she has a big head and she looks like a man to me. I guess the casting couch is still in effect.

She’s GORGEOUS and has been both my husbands and my favorite model for a long time! Congrats to her!

When I saw her on Sports Illustrated I thought she was pushing 40! Then I saw her on Ellen and still thought she looked way older than 30! She looks like a typical model and I wouldn’t remember her if I passed her on the street.

A Faith Hill look alike is NOT breaking the mold. C’mon!

Curvy? haha seriously? now dont get me wrong we dont want a disgustingly large woman flaunting around in underwear and then we’re supposed to buy it. but just like Whitney from ANTM. she was “plus size” but she had a great form.

come on VS
