Real Name Rosa Delmar.
Modelling Aliases Eve Eden – the spellings Dolmai and Delmar is commonly found; in mid-career (the early 1960s), she dropped the name Rosa Domaille and continued modelling instead as Eve Eden [it looks as if she first used Eve Eden for film and TV work and then adopted it for glamour modelling also as she became better known in those fields]. She is called ‘Claudia de Merode’ in a US ad for a glamour film.

Rosa Domaille. It’s fair to say that Rosa Delmai or Domaille as she became known professionally was one of a small handful of the modelling greats from the 1950s.
She was born in Bath in 1938 and owed her exotic looks to Portuguese and English ancestry. Seeking a career as an actress, Rosa was discovered by an unnamed photographer in the Thames Valley Photographic Club where she earned 75p an hour at the tender age of 17 and became a popular attraction for other camera club photographers who named her ‘ The West Country Lovely’.
Eventually, Rosa came to work for Toco publications where her first domestic strip lingerie routines appeared, usually alongside budding models Fiona Callum and Marion Holmes. Rosa spent endless hours posing in fields, snagging her petticoats on barbed wire, tumbling off sledges in bloomers, garters and stockings or making pots of tea in frothy petticoats, push-up bras and high heels before gaining work at professional studios run by Eva Grant, Zoltan Glass, Roger Davies, Russell Gay and of course George Harrison Marks.
Rosa became one of the top five nude models in the English glamour industry and George and Pamela chose Rosa as a subject for a picture shoot in the magazine ‘Picturegoer’ in an article lifting the lid on the nude film craze. From this Rosa gained bit parts in T.V. commercials and variety shows with Norman Wisdom and Benny Hill. Parts were to follow on Danger Man, Deadline Midnight, and Airline Detective.
She was offered a lucrative contract as a film starlet which was to last into the early 1970s. Her first role was as a showgirl in Doctor At Large in 1958. This was soon followed by decorative roles in British dramas and comedies; amongst her more prominent screen appearances are roles in Naked Fury, A Weekend With Lulu, Young Willing and Eager, The Fall of the Roman Empire, Contest Girl, The Beauty Jungle, Help, When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth and dozens of others.
In fact, Rosa’s career as Eve Eden was even more successful and Eve continued to pose as a blonde until the late 1960s.
Rosa was a cover girl for Picturegoer in 1959 and was Practical Photographer’s first cover girl in 1960. Dozens of pictorials followed both Eve and Rosa, including spreads in Playboy, Hi-Life, Modern Man, Fling, Beau, Knave, Jade, Jem and dozens of other international titles.
In the British pocket-sized magazine, Rosa gained more coverage than any other model on the scene and was fully booked from 1957 – 1959 as a model. She appeared in Foto, Model, Spick, Span, QT, Hush, Strip Lingerie, Sleek, X For Men, Beautiful Britons, Fan Fare, and hundreds of others usually in white lingerie, corsets, panties and stockings.
