As if! Clueless turns 20 today!

Hello?! Today is the 20th anniversary of one of the most important, iconic, and quotable movies ever! So, OK, I'm, like, totally buggin'!!


Not to sound like some pretentious hipster or anything, but I've been a fan of Clueless waaay before Tumblr began revisiting it some 3 years ago. I was 5 when the movie was released, but it wasn't until I was probably 8 or 9 that I became totally obsessed with it. Back then, Cher Horowitz was my ultimate role model. I kept hoping someone would refer to me as the most beautiful girl in Beverly Hills—even though I didn't live in Beverly Hills. I would often try to incorporate quotes from the movie into everyday conversations (so that's where my pop-culture obsession began). Oh, I just loved to describe people as "full-on Monets."


Long before wanting a friendship like that of Gossip Girl's Blair and Serena, I aspired to have a friendship like Cher and Dionne's, so we could be the most popular girls in school and talk on our phones in the hallways.



Ugh, I would've killed to go to a party in Sun Valley. Putting on an Alaïa dress, playing suck and blow (yes, I realize now how dirty that sounded), sparking up a doobie to "Rollin' with My Homies," and of course, calling your nemesis out for wearing the same outfit you wore the day before. Do you prefer "fashion victim" or "ensemble-y challenged"?


Seriously, who wouldn't want Cher's outfit-generating computer program?? I know I did. Still do, to be honest. So ahead of its time.


Speaking of, don't even get me started on Cher's fabulous outfits! At least I wouldn't skin a collie to make my backpack.



I've also experienced some very similar struggles and insecurities as Cher. And I bet you have, too.




In conclusion, may I please remind you that it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty?

Let's all celebrate this cinematic masterpiece. May its legacy live on and never be forgotten.



Also, RIP Brittany Murphy. I'm still not over her death. :(

    1. I miss her too! She was such a babe in the '90s (still is). She looked hot in Batman & Robin, it's my second favorite Batman movie after Batman Returns - I regret nothing.
