Victoria’s Secret model Marisa Miller talks cellulite


Marisa Miller has a myriad of honors celebrating her beauty – she had the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition last year, is a Victoria’s Secret angel, and was on Maxim’s 2008 Hot List. She has a girl-next-door look, and is as beautiful in a bathing suit as she is on the red carpet. She’s particularly well known for her great abs. Marisa recently revealed her secret to her great body (lots of exercise – big surprise) and her tip for covering up her cellulite (lots of moisturizer).

“I box a lot, I spin and I surf,” Miller told Tarts at the launch of Naturally Victoria’s Secret Beauty at The Grove in Los Angeles on Saturday. “I try to mix it up. I obviously have to be in shape 24 hours and the gym can be super monotonous, so I just get outside and try to make it fun so my body doesn’t get bored.”

But it turns out that the California native does have to cheat a little in order to hide her (gasp) cellulite when getting ready to strut in a swimsuit.

“Skin is huge and there are so many great bronzers. Self tanners were a little funky ten years ago but the color is a lot better now. That’s the most important thing, if you have a little glow it really hides imperfections – bruises, spider veins, we all have little cellulite,” Miller added. “When you have that glow and you’re moisturized the light hits you in a different way. Especially after winter we have really dry skin it’s important to exfoliate, moisturize and do a self-tanner.”

And even though millions of men across the world have probably spent hours drooling over the lingerie lass, Miller herself feels much more lauded when she gets a little love from the ladies.

“Not to discredit the guys, but when a woman gives a compliment it’s very special. There is nothing more flattering than a woman to say ‘I’m a fan’ or ‘I think you’re beautiful’,” she added. “I don’t know why, but it means a lot to get a compliment from a woman.”

It probably means so much to get a compliment from a woman because it’s the women who are going to be jealous of her rockin’ body. Of course guys think she’s hot. And she’s right on the cellulite count. You can have a great body, but if you don’t have good skin, that’s the first thing people are going to notice.

It’s inspiring to me to see this move from stick-thin models to bodies that are more healthy. Clearly Marisa’s got great genes, but she’s also made the decision to make it muscular as well as lean. Sure, she’s a Victoria’s Secret model, and not doing Paris catwalks, but her type of beauty is really where trends are heading. She’s also very involved in the battle against breast cancer. Here’s one model who actual can be a role model (no pun intended) – a rare find in the industry.

  4. Annie says:

    All flat?

    Yea, I definitely smell jealousy up in this joint.

    Either way, I personally think she’s gorgeous! I’d kill for that body! She has long gorgeous limbs. Bah. Damn you mother for making me so short.

  5. geronimo says:

    Long, lean, perfectly proportioned, beautiful.

  6. saintdevil says:

    When will Supermodels stop blabbing about their imaginary cellulite?

    “All flat” *snort*
    She has great boobs, a shapely ass and a beautiful waistline. Can’t get much closer to the perfect female figure.
    If you’re not a chubby-chaser, that is.

  7. Michelle B. says:

    Yep. I freely admit that I’m green with envy. She’s gorgeous, and so natural. If I looked like that I would walk around nearly naked all the time.

  8. Hieronymus Grex says:

    Wow, some of you wouldn’t know a joke if it got up and cut your hair.

  9. Samantha says:

    She is beautiful, I am totally jealous. I hate her, I hate her hate her hate her!!! *runs off crying*

  10. Lina says:

    Great, just what I love to hear. A drop-dead gorgeous model talking about her body flaws.

  11. Ana says:

    When I workout it is her body I am thinking of. Although I lack the great genes she was blessed with, it gives me some motivation.

  12. teleski says:

    Give me a C!

  13. frewt says:

    I think she’s gorgeous and I’m not the least bit envious – its one of the advantages of being middle aged.

  14. CosVis says:

    She’s beautiful and seems like a really nice girl. That body is rocking!

  15. This is quite a up-to-date info. I’ll share it on Facebook.
