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.
