House of Style in the house for #TBT!

Pop star Iggy Azalea is channeling her inner fashionista and reviving the MTV show that first aired in 1989 and ran for 11 years. HOS is probably best remembered for its original and hottest hostess, Cindy Crawford, who led the model-happy series for six sexy years. One unforgettable episode (No. 50) featured Dennis Rodman, with whom Crawford goes bathing suit shopping in Seattle (hello, banana hammock) in 1996.

We doubt Azalea can top that, but we’re looking forward to seeing what fancy stuff she brings to the table with Web-format episodes that are set to premiere at noon Thursday on Expect: a lesson on crafting the sleekest ponytail ever, a look at a blazer with no armpits and lots of sequins.

“The biggest impact that House of Style had on pop culture is its ability to make fashion fun and interesting to fans who are both diehard fashionistas or not at all,” said Azalea. “I am so excited to bring back this iconic show for another generation of teenagers.”
