Get ready, '90s MTV fans: "House of Style," that legendary cable show that chronicled everything fashion back in the grunge decade, is coming back to the network on October 9th.

But lest you get too excited about marathoning episodes in front of the TV like we used to (fine, we're old, we admit it), this go-around "House of Style" will live mostly online on MTV's Style blog, with tons of social media crossover.

The original "House of Style" premiered in 1989 and rotated through a cast of supermodel hosts, including Cindy Crawford (who hosted for six years), Rebecca Romijn, Shalom Harlow, Daisy Fuentes and Mollie Sims, before shuttering its doors in 2000. The new host of the online show will be revealed live on the red carpet at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards on September 6th. Is it bad if we have our fingers crossed for Karlie Kloss?

To celebrate the "HOS" resurrection, MTV is unlocking a digital archive of clips from the old "House of Style," including what might be the best thing ever: Pat Smear going shopping with the Spice Girls at Contempo Casuals, circa 1997. (Watch that one below!) They're also releasing a documentary called “House of Style: Music, Models and MTV” in August.

But back to the '90s: We're squeeing over all these old clips. For a sneak peek, check out this totally amazing clip from a 1992 episode below, featuring Cindy on a horse and trends like Rollerblading, "wire-rimmed sunglasses" and some really amazing grunge-era 'dos.
