Marisa Miller Biography

Marisa Lee Bertetta was born on 6 August 1978, in Santa Cruz, California USA, and is a model and actress now known as Marisa Miller (first husband Jim Miller), and in particular as one of Victoria’s Secret Angels, probably the peak of recognition in a model’s career.

So just how rich is Marisa Miller? Sources estimate that Marisa’s net worth is now almost $20 million, her wealth largely acquired from her modelling career now spanning over 20 years, but also from her TV and film appearances since the early 2000s, and businesses.

Marisa attended Monte Vista Christian School, and was apparently shy, but this was overcome when she was persuaded to travel to Italy (with her mother) by model scouts, who spotted her in San Francisco when just 16. She subsequently returned to California, but her impressive debut was her appearances in the magazine Perfect 10, including its first publication, thus show-casing herself to the world. This was certainly a solid start to her net worth.

Marisa’s major breakthrough into professional, full-time modelling was in 2001, when Mario Testino, a highly regarded photographer, ‘sold’ her to Vogue magazine in both the USA and Italy, which gained her extensive exposure. Within a short period of time, Victoria’s Secret was utilising her, as was the popular Sports Illustrated Swimsuit publication, which virtually guaranteed her future, and really boosted her net worth.

Since then, Marisa has appeared on the covers and pages of many world famous magazines, such as Vanity Fair, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan, Maxim Glamour, and Elle among others, significantly boosting her net worth consistently over a number of years.

Marisa has also been contracted to many reputable fashion houses, including J.Crew, Tommy Hilfiger, Guess, True Religion jeans, Body Works and Nordstrom. These assignments have also added considerably to Marisa’s growing net worth.

Although working intermittently for Victoria’s Secret from 2003, Marisa did not become an ‘Angel’ until 2007, one of only 15 at any one time. For the next several years she paraded on the yearly Fashion Show, broadcast on US prime-time TV, and often displaying unique and expensive lingerie studded with diamonds and other jewels, for which creations the company is justly famous. Marisa also worked promoting sports and swimwear collections on tour, as well as fragrances. These projects certainly increased Marisa’s net worth by large amounts.

Concurrent work with the aforementioned Sports Illustrated magazine was also very beneficial for Marisa, especially in 2008 when the swimsuit edition was initially advertised over three storeys of a New York building, and in 2009 when the magazine released a calendar of purely Marisa Miller shots. Both were outstanding successes in sales, and in contributing to Marisa’s healthy net worth.

Perhaps an indication of Marisa’s value was her decision to leave Victoria’s Secret in 2010, to concentrate on individual brands which she believed were more suitable to her personality. These included Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Captain Morgan Rum, but Miller also went into business, launching a line of shoes, and surfboards which all helped her net worth to continue rising.

Additionally, Miller worked on television as early as 2004, when judging “Manhunt: The Search for America’s Most Gorgeous Male Model on Bravo. In 2007 she appeared in two episodes of “The Shot”, a reality show on VH1, and a cameo with other Angels in CBS’ comedy “How I Met Your Mother”. In 2009, she was a guest judge on “America’s Next Top Model”, and made a guest appearance in “Gary Unmarried”. In 2010, she appeared in commercials for the NFL, and a “Visit California” campaign. Of course, all added to Marisa’s improving net worth.

In her personal life, Marisa was married to surfer Jim Miller(2000-2002), under which name she became famous, and has been married to Griffin Guess since 2006, they have two sons. Marisa is also a noted philanthropist, an American Cancer Society ambassador to which she donates from her businesses; an advocate for awareness of breast cancer in young women; and is an ambassador for USO – supporting military personnel and families.
