It’s baaack!

If there was any doubt that the 90s were taking over the summer (see: overalls, scrunchies, denim-on-denim), the announcement that MTV’s House of Style is back — with the breakout star of this season, natch — totally proves the point.

The game-changing fashion news program originally hosted by Cindy Crawford, Rebecca Romijn and Molly Sims in the ‘90s highlighted the unique relationship between style and music and featured a regular segment with Todd Oldham, and appearances by Madonna and Anna Wintour. The series, which was rebooted with a 2012 digital series with Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls, will debut once again — with Iggy Azalea at the helm.

The "Fancy" host will take viewers into L.A.’s best vintage stores and to music video sets with Rita Ora and Jeremy Scott. "The biggest impact that House of Style had on pop culture is its ability to make fashion fun and interesting to fans who are both diehard fashionistas or not at all," the Australian rapper, 24, said in a statement. "I am so excited to bring back this iconic show for another generation of teenagers."

The eight episodes will kick off on MTV.com beginning August 4. A Video Music Awards special will air during the show, and on August 26, there will be a style recap.
