MTV's House of Style Returns; Five Best Musical Fashion Moments From the Archives

MTV might not be bringing back hours of endless music videos -- you know, 'cause that would make sense -- but it is revitalizing the once-popular '90s series House of Style. Did you know that the show that showed us how to dress like riot grrrls and tough Sporty Spice was on for 11 years? How time flies and fashions change.

Kicking things off will be a launch of an online archive full of video clips. MTV caters to our nostalgic side by releasing the documentary House of Style: Music, Models, and TV on August 7. And finally, on September 6, at the MTV Video Music Awards, the network will announce the new host for the series relaunch.

As we take a few guesses at who the lucky person will be -- one of the Geldof sisters, Charlotte Free, or maybe Kelly Osbourne -- take a look at our favorite videos featuring an X-Girl, a Beastie Boy, and some spicy ladies from the House of Style archive.
