Her Early Life
Marisa Miller was born Marisa Lee Bertetta on August 6, 1978, in Santa Cruz, California, U.S.A to Krista (née Useldinger) and Marc Bertetta, who lived of a truck during the first 6 months when they were married. She attended high school at Aptos High and Monte Vista Christian School. Marisa considered herself a tomboy growing up, with mostly male friends and with very little interest in anything girly. Out of shyness, she often wore large t-shirts to hide her body and would get fully dressed just to go to the trash-can while at the beach. But her tall athletic physique was perfect for her school’s volleyball team and they never lost a match when she played as outside hitter.
Marisa was first discovered when she was 16 at a San Francisco café by two Italian modeling agents. A few months later, despite her “shy and conservative” personality and after the approval of her mother, they were on a plane to Italy for a shoot.
Marisa gained attention in 1997 when she appeared nude in the first issue of Perfect 10 magazine. Although she only bagged third in Perfect 10 Magazine’s first annual model search, she was repeatedly showcased in following issues, including the covers of the Winter 1998 and August/September 1999 editions. And unlike most models who begin their careers with nude photo shoots, Marisa was able to make the jump to mainstream modeling right away…
When Marisa was out surfing on Manhattan Beach one day, she ran into the famous fashion photographer Mario Testino. And that was a chance meeting that changed everything. Mario was stunned by 21-year-old’s sexy feminine figure, and a quick off-the-cuff photoshoot followed. One thing led to another, and Marisa was offered a chance to develop her modeling work.
Marisa made her debut in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show on December 4, 2007. She also opened a segment in the following year’s edition. She also walked the runway in 2007’s Fashion for Relief show (a benefit event for victims of Hurricane Katrina), MTV’s Fashionably Loud, Imitation of Christ, Inca, and Amir Slama’s Rosa Cha, for which she was one of the most anticipated models.
In 2008, she posed for Harley-Davidson for the launching of their VRSCF V-Rod Muscle motorcycle and November of the following year, Marisa became the face and spokesmodel of Harley-Davidson’s first Military Appreciation Month. The said campaign featured Marisa in classic, pin-up style military-themed advertisements.
In July of 2008, Marisa went beyond modeling when skate and surf-oriented company Vans launched her shoe line. In September of the same year, Sports Illustrated released a “Best of Marisa Miller” swimsuit calendar for the year 2009.
Marisa was also very busy with Victoria’s Secret in 2008. She went on a five-city tour to promote the 2008 Swim collection’s release in stores. The relaunch of Victoria Secret’s sports line, VSX, soon followed, along with her first official campaign as an Angel: promoting the company’s fragrance Very Sexy Dare. The following year, Marisa was chosen to wear the year’s “Fantasy Bra” for the 2009 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
2004 saw Marisa’s TV debut. She was a judge on the reality series Manhunt: The Search for America’s Most Gorgeous Male Model. The same year, she appeared in “Spin You Around” music video by Puddle of Mudd.
2007 brought appearances in the pilot episode and finale of VH1’s reality show ‘The Shot’ and cameos in HBO’s Entourage and the CBS comedy ‘How I Met Your Mother’. It was also in 2007 that she filmed her first television commercial for Victoria’s Secret, appearing alongside Heidi Klum for the ‘It’ bra.
The following year (2008), Marisa starred in a viral video on YouTube with All Star baseball player Ryan Braun for Remington’s ShortCut clippers. She has also appeared in commercials for the NFL Network and the California Travel and Tourism Commission’s “Visit California” campaign.
In 2009, she had a guest judge role on an episode of America’s Next Top Model and a bit role in an episode of Gary Unmarried.
Since 2009, Marisa is an ambassador for the American Cancer Society, to which proceeds from her online store are donated. She also supports the Young Survival Coalition. A foundation which raises awareness of breast cancer in women under 40. She also fully supports the environmental organization The Surfrider Foundation, which aims to preserve the world’s oceans and beaches.
