mtv’s revival of house of style

Posted in Your Fashion Fix by Staff on March 6, 2009

I don’t truly understand television’s persistent fascination with all things fashion and I can say I’m over it but MTV is churning out another fashion dandy, this time NOT a reality show (thank you!) but a revival of House of Style, the ’90s era show that was hosted by the likes of Cindy Crawford, Amber Valletta, and Shalom Harlow.

I found some footage of the namesake show on youtube and i’m a bit more interested in what they might have going on here. MTV also followed Jessica Stam around during Fashion Week so it seems they may be focusing on a more legit view of the industry. We can certainly appreciate that!

We’ve heard little bits about this show here and there but in conversation with Glamour Magazine it seems Chanel may have confirmed speculation, the magazines titles her as cohost of MTV’s House of Style.  The American Icons spread that she appears in with various celebrities is pretty cool also. Check it out! Lindsay Lohan as Madonna and Alexis Bledel as Rosie the Riveter are our favorites. Of course we appreciate they’ve picked a co-host of color. And though many perceive models as mere mannequins, Chanel Iman has a bubbly, charismatic personality from the footage I’ve seen and I’m excited for her. I might have preferred Jourdan Dunn; she’s also a quirky cutie with the best English accent ever (i’ve always wanted one) but she’s not American and we’re rooting for the USA on this throwback.

Similarly, Coco Rocha made love to the cameras during fashion week serving as spokeswoman and interviewer for various outlets … or so we’ve read. We would have liked her a lot and Bar Rafaeli is relatively unknown but we’ll leave casting to the professionals while we wait for the debut.
