Model Rebecca Romijn, whose face has graced numerous magazine covers and TV commercials, will now be seen talking and walking, too, as the new host of MTV's "House of Style."
In taking over the microphone on the cabler's now-quarterly fashion series, Romijn (pronounced "romaine"), is following the likes of Daisy Fuentes and Cindy Crawford.
Romijn makes her first appearance in her new role Dec. 16 at 10 p.m. on an hour-long "Year in Style." "I love doing television," Romijn told The News yesterday (12-09-1997, RRF). "It's exactly what I wanted to do. I don't want to act. This is exactly where I want to be right now in my life. It's not scary for me, I feel I can do it well."
"It's about letting me be in my own skin," she said. "That's why I'm not interesting in acting. I'm very strong in my own skin. I don't necessarily feel like trying to get into other characters. That's why I love doing those talk shows, that's why I love doing 'House of Style.' I feel I come off better in that medium than in pictures. Modeling has treated me very well, but I never felt like I was the best model. I feel comfortable on TV."
New host Rebecca Romijn drives around L.A. in a convertible and talks style with Tyra Banks. They wear matching blue sweaters and discuss trends and what it’s like to shop for clothes. Tyra is obviously a media mogul now, and Rebecca has gone onto a successful acting career (a transition attempted by many and achieved by few), but it’s interesting that they cut unorthodox figures in the industry because they skew a little mainstream for hardcore fashion fans. They talk about how asymmetrical silhouettes and sheer clothes don’t work on girls with big boobs, and they talk about how relieved they are that glamour has returned to upstage the waif. It's a good time in media since curvier, more commercially sexy models like Trya and Rebecca could get exposure on a new genre of magazine: The ’90s were the boom time for the “lad mag,” like Maxim, Stuff and FHM. Models had options outside women’s fashion magazines, and were no longer relegated to other extremes like Playboy, or to themed editions like Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue.
