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

Not a very flattering pic. She looks like a walking candy apple. Her head is HUGE!

Who on earth cares which “curvaceous” or “busty” or whatever bimbo has been granted the privilege of serving as the next poster girl for male drool buckets and slobber rags? One of the many sad things about this girl’s generation is that it’s fallen hook, line, and sinker for the notion that it’s somehow an “honor” and a “privilege” to be turned into a pair of pushed-up boobs in high heels.

Since when do big boobs make a woman “curvy”?

Are you guys just now noticing her? She was on the cover of Sports Illustrated swimsuit and yes, she’s 30, but has been modeling for a while. She’s hardly new, even to VS. She’s also a surfer and yea! an All-American model for us to be proud of.

5’8 at 115 pounds is very far from “Curvy” I love her and think she is a perfect all american angel..but breaking the mold… thats a bit much.. 5’8 at 135 would be breaking the mold or even 5’11 at 135 would be breaking the mold…

Emma – not cut out to be a model? hahaha That’s why she has been so successful? Do you guys know anything about modeling? She has been on the cover of several magazines and landed the most coveted modeling job of all last year with SI’s swimsuit cover. And she has been with VS for years already, just now making her an “Angel”. If you don’t know what you’re talking about, don’t comment.

She looks old…You can tell that if she wasn’t wearing make up she’d be very old looking. Very common california 30 year old with botox. LOL. Adriana is still at the top of my list. I like fresh faced early twenties in bras and panties. Not some 30 year old looking cougar!

Missyvonne – you think she looks old? Do you know how successful she is already and that she’s been modeling for VS for years? She has a lot of freckles and she surfs, but old? Come on…

ollie on

You wonder why she became the latest Victoria Secret model….Come on you guys……duh, she’s married to a Hollywood producer! Get the picture?

Jenn on

Just 5’8″ and cury?!? Are you kidding me? I’m 5’3″, apparently extremely short by VS’s standards, and 120 which must mean I am voluptous as well! VS if you want to see a “REAL” model check out Dove Real Beauty Campaign.
