When Elle Fanning his the red carpet last night in a red spaghetti strap mini dress and strappy sandals we thought it was a familiar look. Then we remembered, duh, it's totally the Cher Horowtiz 'it's Alaia' red mini dress. As if. So we thought we'd set ourselves a fun afternoon challenge to find other Bettys doing a Clueless.
Eighteen years after it was first released, Clueless is still the bible. Oh how we love Cher's closet computer programme, the feather pens, the plaid skirts, rollin' with the homies... we could go on and ON. She's still the most quotable girl we know - she came out with lines such as 'You see how picky I am about my shoes and they only go on my feet.'
Turns out A Listers think she is totally buggin' too. Rihanna wore a red spaghetti strap Calvin Klein slip dress with a choker necklace which is a recreation of THE white Cher date dress. You remember how it goes... 'Cher, what are you wearing?” “A dress!” “Says who?” “Calvin Klein!” Jessica Hart also did a Cher in a patterned mini and pale suede thigh highs - of course her blonde locks help transform her into the Beverly Hills princess.
You can't get more Cher than a plaid skirt. Nicola Roberts wore plaid on plaid to London Fashion Week and Jessica Alba wore a yellow plaid skirt over in New York. The Albster might not be wearing knee highs or a three piece suit, but yellow plaid will always scream Clueless to us.
So put on Jill Sobule’s “I Wanna Be a Supermodel' and take a look at the modern day Chers in the gallery above. We'd like to think we know Cher's wardrobe as well as her computer programme does, but if you want to brush up on her signature style see every outfit she's ever worn in 60 seconds in the video below. How amazing is that?
