Remember a couple of weeks ago when we told you about the return of House of Style? Well, it’s started–with a 22-minute documentary about the awesome ’90s TV show, which debuted online yesterday. It’s a welcome trip down memory lane and perfect merging of the old and the new, with clips of Cindy Crawford taking Duran Duran shopping at Sears and reminding us of a time when MTV was good, followed by clips of relative newcomers like Coco Rocha and Kat Graham obsessing over all of it and comparing it to the way things are now (less fun).
Some particularly entertaining clips from the original series include an interview with John Galliano from 1993 after his first show (Comments Mr. Mickey in the doc: “I don’t think anyone could sit in a room alone with John Galliano with a camera [now].”), a darker-haired, youthful Anna Wintour talking about the 90s model obsession, Cindy Crawford singing “Mmmbop” with Hanson, and a mall shopping trip with the Spice Girls.
Other commenters include Crawford herself, Daisy Fuentes, Azealia Banks (a perfect current example of when music and fashion come together), Charlotte Ronson, and Leandra Medine, who says she “grew up on” the show. This got us wondering: Could this documentary have some hints as to whom the new House of Style host will be? Some of our guesses made appearances: Karlie Kloss, Coco Rocha, and we almost included Leandra and Kat Graham. Suspiciously absent: Alexa Chung, who we still sorta think would be perfect despite her first failed MTV show.
We think Rocha had some of the most insightful comments, Graham seemed most enthusiastic, and they also gave a lot of air time to Brit musician Rita Ora. Hmmm.
Watch the documentary below and tell us who you think would make the best host. Or should they just bring back Cindy?
