Since joining Victoria’s Secret as an Angel in 2007, Marisa Miller has captivated the fashion world. Her striking beauty has graced numerous covers, including those of Sports Illustrated and other esteemed magazines, earning her the title of “The return of the Great American Supermodel.”

Now proudly cruising the streets, Miller rides a sleek Harley Nightster, exemplifying her adventurous spirit and adding a touch of glamour to the world of motorcycles.
Mexican model Elsa Benitez began her journey way back in 1995 when she participated in a beauty pageant in Costa Rica. The 2001 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit issue had Elsa Benitez all over it, and from there, she was on the road to success. She has had her share of television appearances too.
She made herself a reputation in her homeland before rowing into the United States and, eventually, Europe. In 2009 she hosted "Mexico’s Next Top Model" and held that position until 2012. Elsa Benitez's rise to fame from a beauty pageant contestant to a renowned international model exemplifies her exceptional talent and determination.
Yamila Diaz-Rahi is the first Latina to represent the cosmetic company CoverGirl. Almost three decades ago, she became globally famous after appearing on the Sports Illustrated cover, and that is not where it ends. Elle, Glamour, and other magazines have all had their share of this beauty.
She was discovered in the South American country of Uruguay while she was on vacation, and not long after, she was already assigned to a modeling agency in Milan. With her extensive portfolio in top fashion magazines, she left an indelible mark in the industry. These days, she models very rarely and spends her time doing pottery.
There are not many world-famous Czech models out there, but the few that made it are absolutely stunning, and Petra Nemcova is one of them. She was discovered in her hometown of Prague, and shortly after, she signed up with an agent in Milan. From the Czech Republic to northern Italy, now that's the kind of journey we'd like to go on.
From 2003 until 2008, she appeared in the swimsuit issue of Sports Illustrated. She has also led huge campaigns with Elle Magazine, Marie Claire, and others. In 2004 she established Happy Hearts Fund, a charity organization that operates until this very day.
