NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, May 7, 2000 – Romance Classics has signed international model and actress Rachel Hunter to host the new weekly series “Style World.” Scheduled to premiere in July, 2000, “Style World” combines travel, style and design from around the world. In her role as host, Ms. Hunter will take viewers on a virtual journey as the13-episode series features visits to London, Venice, Barcelona, Marrakesh, New York, Paris, Nice, Rome, Berlin, Florence, Budapest, Stockholm and Mexico. “Style World” explores a country’s unique design and examines how it evolved — from the chic interior of a penthouse in an urban city to the rustic charm of a rural country cottage.
“We are thrilled that Rachel Hunter will host “Style World;” with her cosmopolitan background and international travel experience, she is an obvious choice to show viewers the hidden treasures of each of these cities,” commented Martin von Ruden, General Manager of Romance Classics.
Born and raised in New Zealand, Rachel Hunter rose to prominence after posing as a Sports Illustrated model in 1989. She quickly became one of the most photographed cover models in the world, and followed up her fame with a workout video that subsequently attracted her to the field of acting. Beginning with several television appearances on “The Drew Carey Show,” and as Judd Nelson’s girlfriend on “Suddenly Susan,” Hunter quickly made the transition into feature films. In her most recent film, “Just a Little Harmless Sex,” she played a nightclub waitress opposite Lauren Hutton and Alison Eastwood. She can be seen in the upcoming films, “Metal Gods” with Mark Wahlberg and “MacArthur Park” with Julie Delpy.
Hunter currently resides in Los Angeles where she juggles her newfound acting career with her role as mother to six-year-old daughter Renee and 4-year-old son, Liam. Their father is musician Rod Stewart.
