I hope you’re wearing your white collarless shirt from Fred Segal right now because it's the 20th anniversary of Clueless! That’s right, you’re old, but so is everyone else so it’s going to be ok. Like Heathers before it, Clueless seized the vernacular of an entire generation. I'm totally buggin'. She's a full on Monet. Whatever! I'm Audi. You jeepin' behind my back? As if! And on and on. So it’s no surprise that the entire Internet is celebrating this high holiday. Here are the some of the best Clueless homages from around the web:

Buzzfeed brought attention to the 1995 premiere party, which was hosted by MTV VJs Jenny McCarthy and Daisy Fuentes on a beach with a performance by Luscious Jackson. It doesn't get more '90s than that.

It's not that surprising that Clueless is getting its own musical. The soundtrack is as iconic as the script. David Bowie crooning about fashion while you pick out your outfit for the day. Kim Wilde making you feel proud to be a kid in America. Coolio rapping about rollin' with the homies, while you sustain a clog-induced concussion. All these associations are thanks to Karyn Rachtman, the music supervisor who also worked on the soundtracks for Reality Bites and Romeo + Juliet. Flavorwire caught up with her to talk about why No Doubt's "Just A Girl" wasn't a single off the soundtrack and other behind-the-scenes tidbits.

This mashup of The Little Mermaid and Clueless from 2007 recently resurfaced and we're so glad it did. Ariel ranting about the tragic uselessness of searching for a boy in high school while looking on in disgust at Ursula's unfortunate souls is pure genius.


While we're in the vault, this parody featuring three of the Golden Girls acting out scenes from the movie (with an elderly twist) is magic. Best line: "You see how picky I am about my teeth and they only go in my mouth."

Did you know that Cher's yellow plaid outfit was almost red? Entertainment Weekly talked to the film's costume designer Mona May about how she came up with certain looks and why she thinks Cher and her clique's fashion choices are still relevant today.

Bustle decided to rank the boys from the movie from full-on Monets to total Baldwins. Any article that disses that rude lawyer who called Cher a "dumb kid" gets my stamp of approval.

Bustle also reminded us of some long-forgotten Clueless memorabilia. Digital organizer and Barbie add-ons, anyone?

And, if you pride yourself in your Clueless knowledge, Vh1 has put together a quiz that'll put you to the test. If you don't do as well as you might have hoped, don't sweat it; Cher argued her way from a C+ to an A-, and so can you.
