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’s beautiful, sounds sincere, and i’m sure she’ll make a great angel.

but breaking the mold? give me a break, she’s a busty blonde with blue-green eyes. it would be breaking the mold if the new model was a minority.

excuse me while i don’t call cnn.

What kind of twisted world do we live in when a Victoria’s Secret model is considered “curvy” and “just 5’8”?

ella a on

she’s cute and good for her for being different. if you want to call it that — but whatever. it’s victoria secret. if you’re tall, skinny, and beautiful…and can walk in 4 inch heels – you got the job.

ash on

gina, I completely agree with you… She is beautiful and her sincerity is something I can’t question, but she looks like every woman on the cover of every men’s magazine that I have ever seen. Show us someone different. Rounder, darker… DIFFERENT!

Olivia on

She looks like a twig, not what I would consider “curvy”. The only curve I see is her chest. Her hips, thighs, etc. are all stick thin.

I think she’s pretty boring… I love Adriana.

Actually, at age 30, she’s pretty old to be a model so I guess I would say that it is breaking the mold.

Chelsea on

I think Its Fabolous!!! She’s Closer to a Real Women, Then The Other models. I just think its great!!

Emma on

She’s alright. Not cut out to be a model. What, VS ran out of models who actually fits the criteria?! Please…

Christina on

I think she is pretty and will show off the Victoria’s Secret items wonderfully. No matter what Victorias Secret is NOT going to hire Plus size models to show off their stuff.
