Supermodel and ‘House of Style’ host Cindy Crawford.
Long before fashion bloggers and their popular arm parties took over the interwebs, there was MTV’s highly influential “House of Style.” The series, which first premiered in the late ’80s, captured radical moments like a hangout sesh between Cindy Crawford and Jon Stewart, Naomi Campbell applying zit cream to her otherwise perfect face and even Kurt Loder receiving a Tommy Hilfiger-approved makeover. “HOS” offered a front row seat to the fabulousness of the fashion world, where supermodels flirted with rock stars and Anna Wintour cracked a smiled every so often. And that’s why the discerning tastemakers at MTV Style have decided to bring it back.
Earlier today, the blog announced that they not only published 170 clips from the original series (feel free to browse through the archive at your leisure), but they’ve also developed an au courant versh of the show to premiere on October 9. Until then, check out the trailer for the documentary short, “Music, Models & MTV” (debuts August 7), which will include sit-downs with former hosts Daisy Fuentes and Rebecca Romijn, as well as designers Cynthia Rowley and Anna Sui.
