#Rememberthe90s nostalgia-holics who rejoiced upon seeing Beavis and Butt-Head lampoon Jersey Shore and Skrillex last year and requested a few days of "working from home" to catch the "Retro-Mania" re-airing of Daria this summer will now have another retro reboot to look forward to. MTV announced today that they are bringing back the iconic House of Style, the decade-plus-running celebration of creativity, couture and the rising cult of personality of the "supermodel." In addition to designers and fashion-savvy musicians, the show painted candid portraits of high-profile and up-and-coming runway walkers and helped make the likes of Cindy Crawford, Molly Sims, Rebecca Romijn and Daisy Fuentes household names. Although the original incarnation of the show went off the air in 2000, a one-off episode aired in 2009 with Iman and Bar Refaeli as hosts.
As with the rebirth of Beavis, the 2.0 version of House of Style will be updated to the signs of the times with a multiplatform format, MTV News and Docs’ Dave Sirulnick told TheWrap. In addition to GIF-packed coverage (because of course) and back episodes and clips from the original run of the series on the MTV Style blog, the show will feature supplemental content on Tumblr, Instagram and other social media. Because the best way to get up close and personal with models is through your favorite iPhone app filter.
The new show will air this fall, with the new host being revealed during the Video Music Awards on September 6th. In the meantime, to further whet the appetites of a generation of fashion junkies, the network is airing a special documentary, House of Style: Music, Models, and MTV, on August 7th. Watch the trailer for the documentary, which features footage of Crawford, Campbell, members of the Wu-Tang Clan and many more, below.
To help jog your memory, here’s a particularly memorable scene from the show where Crawford visits the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air set with Will Smith.
