Revlon's Contemporary Image
Widely known as the model for Clinique, model Rhea Durham continues to be featured on the best worldwide fashion magazine covers and eventually became the next image for Revlon. Rhea, standing 5' 9" tall, is a dark-brown haired and green-eye curvaceous beauty who sizzles as a sex symbol. One of her male fans stated, "I love my wife and kids, but if Rhea showed any interest I'd be packing my bags."
The astounding model has been linked to movie actors Stephen Dorff (Deacon Frost in the 1998 vampire movie Blade) and Planet of The Apes star Mark Wahlberg. Wahlberg and Durham conceived a daughter together who was born on September 2, 2003. Rumors whisper that Wahlberg is no longer with Durham and instead is involved with Dark Angel actress Jesica Alba.
Childhood and Family:
Rhea Durham was born on July 1, 1978 in Lakeland, Florida. On September 2, 2003, at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Rhea became a mother herself after giving birth to daughter Ella Rae. The child weighed 7 pounds, 4 ounces and her father is actor Mark Wahlberg (b. June 5, 1971).
Rhea Durham did not have to look long for success because early in life she was discovered by the fashion industry when she joined a model search held at the Lakeland Square Mall in Lakeland, Florida. This discovery launched her into the flashy world of modeling, complete with sex symbol status.
New York proved to be the best place for Rhea to jump-start her modeling career where she joined the IMG agency. Rhea's career took off and her name quickly shot toward stardom. She then expanded her modeling to Paris with the City agency and to Milan with the Why Not agency to pose for the foremost local and international fashion magazines like French Vogue, Italian Marie Claire, and British and American Elle. Rhea also gained fame by doing campaigns for the famous cosmetic company Clinique.
Thanks to Clinique, in April 2001, Rhea signed a multimillion-dollar deal with cosmetic company Revlon where she replaced Revlon's former spokes model Cindy Crawford.
Rhea's future ambitions include acting and she has already made several appearances on TV such as modeling for The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show (2001) and played herself in the series Spin City, in episode The Wedding Scammer on November 13th, 2001.
