Ultimate '90s fashion icon Cher Horowitz is one of our picks for easy, cool Halloween costumes, and it looks like Clueless star Alicia Silverstone has taken note. She slipped into her alter ego's tartan skirt suit for an upcoming episode of Lip Sync Battle, and in the process managed to make the internet go wild with nostalgia, inspire Chrissy Teigen to fangirl, and remind us once again that we've been meaning to incorporate knee socks into our fall wardrobe.
Teigen, who hosts Lip Sync Battle, Instagrammed a picture of herself and Silverstone (plus her baby daughter, Luna) with the caption “How am I supposed to sleep? I think I've asked for 2 photos in my entire life. @AliciaSilv and Beyonce.” In Clueless vernacular, Teigen was “like totally buggin'.” And, to be fair, we would be too!
In the forthcoming episode, Silverstone goes up against another '90s actress, Mena Suvari, who starred in American Beauty and American Pie, in a lip-syncing competition. And while we don't yet know which song Silverstone will perform, Iggy Azalea's “Fancy” seems like a safe bet, given that Iggy used the video as an opportunity to flex her best Cher getup. However, if Silverstone were to bust out a rendition of “Rollin' With The Homies,” we'd be able to die happy.
As any Clueless fan knows, the distinct, Contempo Casuals-filled wardrobe was a crucial part of the film, though Silverstone admitted earlier this year that she knew nothing about fashion when she was cast as its star.
“I just didn't get fashion at all,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I was just kind of a tomboy and I just wasn't into it, so when we had the [Clueless] fittings, I was just like, 'What is going on? Why am I in these fittings for so long?' I just didn't get it until I saw the movie and I was just like, 'Oh I get it! The costumes are the star of the movie!”
But, judging by Teigen's picture, it seems like all these years later, Silverstone finally feels like the pleated skirt fits.
