Just like plenty of movies and fashion trends these days, television shows are also constantly being recycled. MTV, for one, has decided that it's time to bring back the nineties fashion-centric House of Style - this time, however, it will be hosted by models Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls.
MTV announced the news at Thursday night's Video Music Awards, which both models attended to raise awareness of the upcoming program (in addition, of course, to their primary job of just looking stunning on the red carpet) “I can’t believe it," Smalls said. "I’m in shock as well,” Kloss added. “It’s unbelievable and such a huge honor. We have major shoes to fill.”
Cindy Crawford, Amber Valetta, Molly Sims and Rebecca Romijn were a few of the models who hosted the original show back in the day. “Both industries have changed quite a bit. So it’ll be interesting to see how we show that," Kloss said.

Alexa Chung admits her new fashion TV show is "really intense." The British beauty - who creates her own fashion range as well as TV presenting and DJ-ing - admits "24 Hour Catwalk," where designers are challenged to create a runway collection in a day, is tough and she believes even she began to go crazy as she had to stay up as long as the contestants.
"It's a very mean show. It's really intense. There's designers - there's a first round challenge where two of them go, and then the next two are really excited and pumped to be through and then we're like, 'Wait, you have to create a collection in 24 hours'. So then they have to stay awake all through the night. It's very mean, they get very emotional. But it also involves me staying up for 24 hours too! By episode six I was losing my mind," she said when speaking about the show on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Alexa is loved by many designers, with Christopher Kane previously stating she manages to always look phenomenal: "It was just one of those things. She contacts me, she wanted to wear something so it's great. She looks phenomenal, she always does."
Cheryl Cole wants to own more Victoria Beckham dresses in 2012. The stylish beauty donned one of the former Spice Girl singer's creations for an awards show in London earlier this year, and she admits she is very keen to wear more of them in the next 12 months.
"I think Victoria Beckham is another girl who killed it this year. I love Victoria, I love her clothes and, actually, my festive wish would to be wearing more of it next year."
Despite seeing her profile peak during her stint as a judge on UK TV show X Factor - for which she became known for her style - Cheryl admits fashion was the last thing on her mind when she was on the show: "At the moment, I'm not constantly on TV, it's not as intense as it once was. I feel more relaxed because I'm judging doing music, going to the studio. To be honest, when I was on X Factor, what I wore was the least of my worries. But it's nice now not to have to even think about it, just to have a weekend."
Supermodel Naomi Campbell thinks it is important to "remember her roots."
The British native is the focus of her new documentary about her life as part of the CNBC Meets series, and in the show she explains how her upbringing in London helped to inspire her charity work.
"I've really enjoyed working with Tania on this show, and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished show. For me, it's really important to remember my roots and experiences growing up - it's those things that make you the person that you are. London will always be home to me, and it was so much fun to take a walk down memory lane and visit the house I grew up in."
Also in the documentary, Naomi talks about breaking barriers in fashion and her attempts to break down barriers for other black women, and there are also contributions from her mentor, legendary producer Quincy Jones and Duran Duran stars Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes.

E!'s fashion police correspondant Kelly Osbourne has criticized the newly-crowned Duchess of Cambridge on her knack for recycling fashions.
"In England they are like look how thrifty she's [Kate Middleton] being, showing the British public that the Royals are in a recession as well. Only in this country they call it a faux pas," Osbourne said on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Osbourne spoke in regards to the dress Kate wore to Zara Phillips' royal wedding this month, which she had previously worn in 2006.
"Well I'm sorry but if I had that job I would only wear it once. If I am going to be the future bloody Queen of England I'm going to wear that dress once because I'm giving up the rest of my life, all of my privacy, at least I can get a new dress every day."
Perhaps this is why Kelly is not the future Queen of England! I am personally all about being thrifty and opting to reuse and/or restyle clothing that I like -- why can't Kate? Not that I'm a huge fan of the future queen's style, but recycling clothes over lavishly spending copious amounts of money on new ones is a plus in my book!
