Born on the 4th of July in Los Angeles, California, Alyssa Miller is truly an All-American girl! The brunette 5'9" beauty with piercing blue-green eyes began her career at the age of 14 after her father mailed in a few snapshots to a local modeling agency. It didn’t take long for Alyssa to be embraced by the fashion world. She's worked with top designers such as Stella McCartney and Blu Marine. She's graced the covers of German and Italian Vogue, French and Italian Elle, Turkish Harper’s Bazaar, and Turkish and Mexican GQ as well a multitude of editorial stories in prestigious magazines such as Harper’s Bazaar, Allure, German and Japanese Vogue to name a few.
