“Clueless” might just be the greatest movie of our time because it’s one of the most iconic pop culture references shared by both Generation Y and Generation X. And OK, yeah, I maybe wrote a 20-page term paper on the movie for my senior semiotics seminar, so it’s clear I’m obsessed. (Loser!) But, here is some of the most rad news I’ve heard in a while: Calvin Klein is remaking the dress Cher Horowitz wore on her date to the dance with Christian. The sad news: It costs $916. At the same time, this kind of makes me want to start a campaign for someone to reproduce the entire “Clueless” wardrobe. In any case, let us take a moment to recall this genius scene that made the dress famous. Cher enters the dining room in the skin-tight mini to say goodbye to her father …
Mel: What the hell is that?
Cher: A dress.
Mel: Says who? …
Cher: Calvin Klein.
Mel: It looks like underwear. Go upstairs and put something over it.
Cher: Duh, I was just going to.
And the genius Cher returns with a sheer blouse, knowing that she can get away with the bare minimum to placate daddy. [The Cut]
