Australian rapper/sing Iggy Azalea is apparently having a bit of a love affair with American pop culture from the ’90s. In addition to her tribute to the incredible glamour of the movie “Showgirls,” Iggy and her pal Charli XCX have now put out this homage to Amy Heckerling’s “Clueless.” It is, as Cher would say, CLASSIC.
Anyone on the real estate market who is looking for a little piece of history needs to get themselves to Los Angeles, where the iconic valley party house from “Clueless” is currently for sale. For the bargain price of $825,000, owning this house would allow you to do any of the following life dream status activities:
- Making dinner in the kitchen where Tai and Elton sang “Rollin’ With My Homies.”
- Taking a bath in the bathroom where Murray shaved his head because he’s “keepin’ it real” and Dion called his mom to tell on him.
- Lounging by the pool where Cher received an angry call from her dad on her brick-sized cellphone.
- Watching TV in the family room where Travis attempted (and failed) to crowd surf.
I could go on for days. The point is, someone really needs to buy this house and then recreate that gloriously 90s party and invite me. Please. [Daily Mail]
I’m not sure where the time went, but somehow, this week marks the 18th anniversary of the release of “Clueless.” What a world! Things grow up so fast. “Clueless” is old enough to vote, to buy cigarettes and fireworks in some states — you know, the best things about adulthood! After re-watching the movie for the zillionth time, I realized that there are some nuggets of wisdom buried beneath all the makeover montages and knee socks. Here are seven pretty solid life lessons gleaned from “Clueless.”

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! See the full shoot above and read the interview at the link! [Bullett]
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 »
