Do you remember where you were the first time you saw Amy Heckerling’s seminal ’90s film “Clueless”? I was visiting my cousin in Honolulu and had just suffered extreme embarrassment during my first surfing attempt. We decided to take the edge off my shame by seeing “Clueless,” starring my then-style icon Alicia Silverstone, and it totally was just what the doctor ordered. “Clueless” must have had as much of an impact on Kimberly Gordon, the designer behind fashion line Wildfox Couture, because her latest lookbook is directly inspired by the film. Click through to see the models doing their best Cher, Dionne and Tai in various recreated scenes from the film. Classic! [I Love Wildfox]
“Clueless” is one of the most iconic movies of the ’90s, and it’s also proof that we are all mega-old now, because it actually came out 17 years ago. No matter, because “Good Morning America” has brought the cast together to reminisce about one of the best teen movies of all time. Everyone still looks pretty good (though Christian isn’t as svelte as he used to be)!
Alicia Silverstone a thing of the past? As if! The actress, best known for her roles in “Clueless” and a couple of epic Aerosmith videos, sat down for an interview with director Amy Heckerling in the latest issue of Bullett magazine. Heckerling directed Silverstone in “Clueless” and the two reminisced about the good ol’ days (ahh, the 1990s!) and what Silverstone would have done differently following her rise to stardom. But maybe any regrets she has will fade away if her latest effort with Heckerling, the upcoming film “Vamps,” has critics and audiences totally buggin’. Let’s hope!

I’ve seen many Virgin Mary candles in my day, but this is definitely the first Virgin Who Can’t Drive candle I’ve ever come across, and everything about it–from the “Clueless” quote to Brittany Murphy’s incredulous expression, is amazing. The perfect gift for anyone who worships at the altar of ’90s movies. [$12, The Mall]
“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. Keep reading »
After oodles of Dracula adaptations, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Twilight,” “True Blood,” “Daywalkers,” and “The Vampire’s Assistant,” I thought I’d let out a blood-curdling scream if I heard about another vampire movie. But amazingly there’s a new entry in the bloodsuckers category that I’m pretty excited about. The flick is called “Vamps,” and it starts filming in April. What’s so buzzworthy about it? It will be directed by Amy Heckerling, the woman behind “Clueless,” which, 15 years later, never fails to crack me up when I catch it on cable. As if (get it?) that weren’t enough, guess who’s starring? None other than Alicia Silverstone, whose comeback we’ve been anxiously awaiting for years. This will be the first time the dynamic duo has teamed up since their 1995 breakout. Keep reading »

“Clueless,” the ’90s chick-flick which never gets old, taught every tween girl the word ‘sporadic.’ Now, it’s on its way to becoming a Broadway musical. At the end of August, a developmental staging will be running for a week. If all goes well, the production could be headed to the Great White Way. Wait, isn’t Alicia Silverstone working on another Broadway project? Please, please tell us that she’ll be reprising the role of Cher! [Variety]
