Back in July, we reported some amazing news: that MTV’s iconic 90’s show, House of Style, would be coming back into our lives! It was just confirmed on the VMA Red Carpet that none other than two Modelinia favorites, Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls, will be filling the shoes of industry megastars like Cindy Crawford and Amber Valletta as the new hosts. Check out our exclusive interview with Karlie after the jump!
We caught up with Karlie at the DKNY Fashion’s Night Out event where between serving Karlie’s Kookies to benefit the FEED Project, she gushed about her new role on the classic show: “I’m really excited. I have been brainstorming with Joan about how to make it fun and creative…what excites me the most about this opportunity is that it will take me out of my comfort zone.” This makes sense, since the show itself thrives at the intersection of music, art and fashion. With all of this creative potential, we asked her who she was most excited to work with. She admitted to “Justin Bieber…’The Biebs.’” It’s OK Karlie, we love him too!
When we asked her about the show being streamed purely online this time around (you can catch it on MTV’s Style Blog) she was thrilled about it: “Everything is online now. It is the wave of the future; everything is instant: social media like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. How users connect to the show is already very web-driven so I think it will be perfect!
But what impressed us most about Karlie? She told us “If I’m going to do this I’m going to do it right. Go big or go home!” ‘Atta girl!
We can’t wait to see the new version with Karlie and Joan at the helm. House of Style returns online to MTV’s Style Blog October 9th, so mark your calendar!
