MTV's House of Style
first debuted in 1989, and has since become a
signature of MTV's pre-Jersey Shore golden years. In anticipation of its
revival of the groundbreaking show, MTV has—hold your breath—
released full clips of every
one of its episodes on MTV.com
. For those
of us who are too young to remember what Kate Moss was like as a
teenager or that Sofia Coppola did anything before The Virgin Suicides
now is the time to educate ourselves on all things fashion and culture
in the nineties. Here are our favorite clips (and a bonus one of one of
our staff members!):
Cindy and Tracey Ullman try on designer clothes together in a Trump
hotel suite. Watch as Tracey mocks the fashion industry and draws
multiple Crawford-esque birthmarks on herself.
Cindy hangs out with Will Smith and takes a tour of the Fresh Prince
set. The best part of this one is Will's attempt at flirting with a
supermodel by jumping off a flight of fake stairs.
A profile on Kate Moss at nineteen. Moss talks about her future and
wanting children, all with a tiny voice and sunny, pre-Pete Doherty
Sofia Coppola and Spike Jonze produce a renegade street fashion show for
brand "X-Girl," right across the street from a Marc Jacobs show.
Audience members include The Beastie Boys, Steven Meisel, Anna Sui, Bill
Cunningham, Linda Evangelista, Francis Ford Coppola, Zoe Cassavetes, and
An incredibly unassuming Gwen Stefani talks about No Doubt's unexpected
success and shows off her eclectic wardrobe. It's awesome to see what
her wardrobe looked like before it evolved into her own brand.
And one bonus video of our very own Cristina Martinez, W
director, in her vintage House of Style
