Cindy Crawford (MTV File )
Our tween memories are a graveyard of long-gone MTV shows—RIP "Making the Video" and "Yo! MTV Raps"—but "House of Style" is especially locked in the '90s thanks to its high concentration of floral shorts. Earlier this week, MTV announced it's resurrecting the fashion-focused show beginning Oct. 9, this time with less hairspray and fewer Calvin Klein T-shirts. The network also will bring in a new host to be announced the night of the MTV Video Music Awards in September. Splashy! But former host Cindy Crawford left big stilettos to fill—so who's got what it takes? These picks would make for interesting TV. firstname.lastname@example.org | @kbernot
This Sports Illustrated cover girl andVictoria's Secret model probably would encourage more than a few dudes to tune in. Plus, she can brag about her hosting gig to that obnoxious 0.1 percent of the population that's been claiming Kate is "fat." Only possible snafu? She'd probably have to start wearing more clothes.
At 13, most of us were sporting braces and ill-advised bangs. By that tender age, blogging sensation Tavi Gevinson already was a special guest judge at NY Fashion Week. NBD. The wee Chicago native is now 16, and she continues to write, photograph and make us all feel inadequate. Downside? As a host, she'd probably have to tackle issues even more intense than who to wear to prom.
Uber-hottie Klum is hosting a new season of Bravo's "Project Runway,"but since her split from Seal, she might have time for a new show. We love that this supermodel can be sweet as pie when she's praising a designer, then turn super snarky with her icy "Auf Wiedersehen!" What could hold her back? Maybe being a bigger superstar than most of the guests she'd interview.
What"America's Next Top Model"season are we on again? This show's been drawn out longer than the "Twilight" franchise. Time for Tyra to take her special brand of cray-cray to a new format. We're picturing lots of meltdowns and freakouts, and we hope a guest appearance from Miss J. Alexander. Pitfalls? Aforementioned meltdowns and freakouts.
