Marisa Miller was born to be a swimsuit model and destined to find the beach as the key to her success. Born and raised in the coastal town of Santa Cruz, attention came to Marisa early, and by 20 she was a regular in Perfect 10 magazine. It was Mario Testino, the famed Peruvian photographer, who launched Marisa’s career as it would be known – working for both Victoria’s Secret and a regular in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issues. Marisa appeared in every issue starting in 2002 through 2008 when she graced the cover of the magazine. She has certainly become one of the most popular SI models over the years.
Marisa has enjoyed a steady swell in popularity, particularly in her crowning year of 2008: the #1 spot on Maxim’s “Hot 100,” first place in “The Best Damn Sports Show Period”’s “Smokin’ Sixteen,” launching a new shoe line in July, and a five-city tour for Victoria’s Secret for promotion purposes. She’s now a Victoria’s Secret Angel and is currently an ambassador of the American Cancer Society. She was married for two years to Jim Miller, a surfer and lifeguard, and is now married to a producer called Griffin Guess.
She also had a very successful run in Captain Morgan ads.

On her career:
“I get a kick out of it, but it would be stupid to let it go to my head. It’s modeling—I didn’t find the cure for cancer.”
