'Clueless' Fashion Still Has Us Buggin' 20 Years Later

"Do you prefer 'fashion victim' or 'ensembly challenged'?"
Clueless turns 20 (almost legal!) and while it provided us with so many classic Cher-isms ("Okay, so he is kind of a Baldwin"), it also gifted us with a hyper-stylized look book of vibrant, quirky and iconic '90s fashion.
Clueless costume designer Mona May, whose film credits include Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion and The House Bunny, drew inspiration from the '60s and '70s for the characters' memorable looks. Twenty years later, the fashion -- just like the 1995 comedy itself -- still resonates.
"[The movie] would have these resurgences," writer/director Amy Heckerling explained to ET. "Like the clothes are back in style or this is back in style."
