Oh! How fantastic is this ancient footage of the supers on MTV’s House of Style, which just resurfaced on District MTV? It’s Cindy Crawford talking to Naomi, Linda, Lauren, Christy and Beverly Johnson about getting scouted, making it in modelling and feminism. Plus – added bonuses! – cameos from Kate Moss, Polly Mellen and Anna Wintour and a young model in original grunge-wear on a go-see. (This footage is from the early 90s).
District MTV, the fashion and style arm of MTV asked me to compile a playlist of my hip-hop favourites for its Midweek Mixtape feature. So naturally I went for the old school greats – I mean, who doesn’t love a bit of Schoolly D, Eric B and Roxanne Shante…?
