House Of Style
“Sometimes people want to approach me, especially guys, because
they’re interested in seeing how I respond to them. However,
after they get to know me, they realize that I’m not what they
originally thought. They usually think I’m just a pretty face.
The biggest misconception is that people don’t realize that
I’m southern until they hear me speak.” Molly Sims
A native of Murray, Kentucky, Molly Sims was a law student at the
Tennessee Vanderbilt University when her friend suggested her to take
modeling. She then had her photos sent to agencies in New York and it
paid off soon when the NEXT Modeling Agency signed her. Deserting her
dream of becoming an attorney, Sims flew to London to launch her
professional modeling career. It was not long before she modeled in
other Europe countries such as Germany and Italy.
As her popularity grew, the attractive Sims fronted many major fashion
magazines, including Marie Claire, Vogue, Elle and Madame and Figaro.

Rebecca Ramijn-Stamos as a host for the long running MTV fashion show
“House Of Style” (2000-?), a series that also formerly

hosting gigs in “The Victorias Secret Fashion Show” (2001),
“World’s Sexiest Athletes” (2002) and

scheming Delinda Deline in the NBC crime/drama “Las Vegas,”
opposite James Caan, James Les, Josh Duhamel and Nikki Cox. She was on
the show from its debut on September 22, 2003 to its final on February
While working on the Gary Scott Thompson-created series, Sims added
