Rebecca Romijn To Host MTV Show

January 26, 1998

NEW YORK (AP) _ MTV’s ``House of Style″ has been remodeled.

Model Rebecca Romijn, 25, fills the hostess role once held by Cindy Crawford on MTV’s show about fashion. Since Crawford left two years ago, the network has been looking for someone to fill her shoes.

Dual hostesses Shalom Harlow and Amber Valletta lasted only a year. Daisy Fuentes was next, but she is now co-hosting ABC’s ``America’s Funniest Home Videos.″

Enter Romijn, who told Entertainment Weekly in its Jan. 30 issue that she was ready for a change from modeling.

``I haven’t loved modeling in a long time, and I don’t think I made the best model,″ said Romihn, who will nevertheless appear in Sports Illustrated’s swimsuit issue next month. ```Style’ is exactly what I want now. A lot of me is personality, and that reads better on TV.″
