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 am excited that she got chosen. I think that she is shaped more like “real” girls, and I am shaped like her as well. I always notice her more in the catalogs for that reason as well. Good luck Marissa!

Boring!!!! thats curvy … ? Looks like just big boobs to me, whatever…

Vanessa on

I love that she is 30 years old. She looks amazing… but a little Jessica Simpson like.

heather on

the only thing curvy about her are her implants. give me a break! and the only “real girls” she looks like are the ones with eating disorders. give me a break people.

alex on

congrats to her:) she is very pretty and seems very down to earth:)

She was a JCPenney model and other catalog clothing companies. I think she is a natural beauty.

Breaking the mold if she was a minority…you obviously don’t know who all the models are and don’t know where this country is headed.

I know it’s sad but these days she would be considered curvy for runway. Those girls are unhealthy thin. I read an article where one of the models was told the look for the season was anorexic thin but they didn’t want her to actually be anorexic. The fashion world is insane. Marissa looks like a healthy thin girl, and yes that is possible.

I think that she’s beautiful. However, I’d love to see more exotic women in these catologs…
There Brazillin, Mexican, NAtive American women even bi-racial women…
I’d love to see the day when there are more ethnicities to grace the cover of Victoria’s secret…………………….

Katherine on

Her breasts look fake. Her tan looks fake. Her face looks like a snake.
