the insiders: karlie kloss and joan smalls
meet the new hosts of house of style.
Did you watch the original House of Style? Joan, you were about one-years-old when it premiered, and I don't think Karlie was born yet!
JS: I was too young but i saw the clips online. It's the same chemistry that we have backstage- just like hanging with your friends.
KK: Yeah I've definitely been doing my homework and watching all those incredible clips! I almost feel like I'm having a history lesson. What's amazing is that the same people are all still huge players. For Joan and I, it's like the same song just a different verse.
When watching the clips, what seemed different about the modeling world today?
KK: The whole industry has changed! It's definitely not quite as much about glamazon women. Back then it was more about the girls than it was about the collections. Now Joan and I have been given this opportunity to show that we personalities and aren't just clothes hangers.
Do you feel intimidated at all to follow in Cindy Crawford's footsteps?
JS: Luckily i have big feet! (laughs)
KK: Joan and I are so unique and so different in our ways, but we're both two girls that grew up watching MTV…we're just normal girls. And I think that was what was so cool about Cindy Crawford- she was from Illinois!
JS: Yeah it's not about filling anyone shoes. We just have to be us.
What T.V. shows are you watching these days?
KK: Well I'm a big sports fan! So I'm always catching a baseball. And now it's football season!
JS: I love watching movies. I love scary movies! And sometimes (hesitates)…. I admit I watch reality TV. My guiltiest pleasure is definitely Jersey Shore. The first season!
