Wednesday, July 25, 2012 (Almost) Vintage: House Of Style
Back in 1989, hair was higher than ever, hip hop was taking over the scene, and supermodels ruled the world. MTV hired Cindy Crawford to host “House of Style“…and the rest is history. We can’t even begin to explain our obsession with the raddest show that ever was, but it could have something to do with Salt-n-Pepa’s epic runway moment, Naomi applying zit cream, shopping with the Spice Girls, and hitting the gym with Gwen Stefani. Not to mention, the series offered insightful interviews with some of the most iconic musicians, models, and designers ever. The show spanned the decade, giving us a backstage pass to fashion in all its forms and in case you haven’t heard, THEY’RE BRINGIN’ IT BACK! Until then, we’ve rounded up some of the best moments from their ’90s archives.

We’re ready to pack our bags and head to Havana after coming across Steven Meisel’s steamy 1989 Vogue Italia editorial featuring one of our ultimate ’90s icons, Linda Evangelista. Filled with saturated sequins, golden accessories, and one tall (dark and handsome) dude, this spread embodies everything that makes summer so damn hot.
Wednesday, July 11, 2012 (Almost) Vintage: Cindy Crawford: The Swimsuit Edition
We’ve always had a major weakness (re: sick obsession) for the otherworldly supermodels that ruled the ’90s. While it’s impossible for us to ever pick a favorite, let’s just say that we could definitely kill a few hours scrolling through editorials of Cindy Crawford…which may or may not have just happened. Her all-American looks and perfectly toned limbs are all the inspiration we need to get our butts to the gym…or at least search for her old workout videos on eBay.

We can’t stop daydreaming about catching some rays and waves after stumbling upon this ’06 Vogue UK editorial featuring Aussie doll, Gemma Ward. The laidback surfer vibes, playful print mixes and cutout swimsuits serve as serious summer inspiration for our weekend wardrobe…and have us ready to pack our bags and head Down Under. Wanna join?
Monday, May 28, 2012 (Almost) Vintage: Pool Party
Get some glamorous poolside inspiration with this ’60s themed Vogue UK editorial starring mega babe Lindsey Wixson. Full of crazy color with bright shades and neon bikinis (and those lips!), it really makes us want to grab a float and soak up some sun. HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY!
