Twenty-five years ago, a little movie called “Clueless” hit theaters — and changed fashion forever.
From Cher’s yellow plaid suit and little red Alaïa (“a-what-a?”) dress to Dionne’s larger-than-life hats, the film’s wardrobe is among the most beloved in celluloid history, flipping the script on ’90s style and influencing trends for decades to come.
The woman behind all those outfit changes (60 for Alicia Silverstone alone) is costume designer Mona May, who recently teamed up with online vintage boutique Thrilling on a collection of one-of-a-kind pieces inspired by the ones in her movies, “Clueless” among them.
With prices ranging from just $30 to $200 and highlights including colorful berets, pleated tartan skirts and a bright red tutu Amber would love, the collection — which launched Monday — is enough to make any fan start buggin’.
Below, May shares the stories behind some of the most iconic looks from Cher’s computerized closet.
