MTV recently announced that it would bring back its iconic show House of Style as a web series this October, and last night at the Video Music Awards, they revealed the hosts. Karlle Kloss and Joan Smalls will work together to fill the shoes of Cindy Crawford and the other model hosts who followed, and Refinery29 spoke with them both last night.

As it turns out, not too much seems to be planned yet, since Karlie Kloss used just about every question as an opportunity to hunt for ideas. When asked if she and Joan would like to interview Adele and Vivienne Westwood together, Kloss responded, "See! We need ideas from people. When you post this, can you let people know to tweet at us? We want ideas!"

Joan Smalls, on the other hand, found it a little harder to stay on track. When asked what House of Style guest she'd most like to channel, she answered the Spice Girls, even though the options were Gwen Stefani, Salt-N-Pepa, or Cindy Crawford.
