Rebecca Romijn (pronounced Ro-mane) was born on November 6, 1792, to Jaap Romijn and Elizabeth Kuizenga, both of Dutch decent. Her father worked as a custom furniture maker and her mother was an English teacher. Romijn attended Berkeley High School and then University of California at Santa Cruz in 1991, where she majored in music. While only in her freshman year at UCSC, Romijn dropped out and moved to Paris after she got together with an agency through a friend. She soon appeared on the cover of French Elle and signed contracts with Christian Dior and Escada. She remained in Paris for over two years.
In 1995, Romijn signed with Victoria's Secret and has since done many shoots for the catalog and participated in the Victoria's Secret fashion shows. That same year she posed for the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition, which significantly furthered her career. Three years later she teamed up with Sports Illustrated again, this time with a swimsuit that was only painted on.
