MTV’s groundbreaking ’90s show “House Of Style” is about to be back in a big way, thanks to our pals at MTV Style. Why should you care? Supermodels, that’s why.

Before the series, the closest thing to “bringing fashion to the masses” was telling them all to go fight over the clearance rack at Marshall’s. This may not matter for you, but it mattered to the girls you were staring at. And the show also brought supermodels into the mainstream. Sure, supermodels had been around since the ’80s, but it wasn’t until Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijn and other mega-babes graced the MTV screen that we saw their normal side, allowing us to delude ourselves into thinking we could nab one someday.

In those days, there was no Internet, so where else could we get behind-the-scenes footage of a Cindy Crawford calendar shoot?  Well now, it’s come full circle. The “House Of Style” collection has a huge archive of old footage online, and you can watch stuff like that Cindy shoot, just like in the old days when you had to quickly change the channel when your parents walked in.

Before she was Mystique in the “X-Men” movies, she was the host that brought the show into the new millennium.

What’s the equivalent of hipsterism when it comes to horny teens? Probably this: “Have you seen this girl Molly Sims in the SI Swimsuit Issue?” “Oh, her? Yeah, I’ve been fantasizing about her since she was on ‘House of Style’ in 2000.”

Even a hometown girl from Oklahoma can rise to the elite modeling ranks. Moral of the story: be nice to every girl you know. She could be in the League of Beautiful Women someday.

“Shalom” can mean “hello,” “goodbye,” or “peace.” Or in this case, “shwing” (remember, it was the ’90s).
