Clueless turns twenty two this year and the 90s teen classic will forever be remembered for these amazing Cher Horowitz quotes, Coolio’s Rollin’ With The Homies, and the fact that Paul Rudd hasn’t aged since. Like, at all.
But for the most part, Clueless will be remembered as a sartorial dream. The Mary Janes! The yellow plaid co-ord! The red Alaïa dress that we’re still pining after two decades later!
So you’ll be just as heartbroken as we were to learn that Alicia Silverstone has one HUGE regret when it comes to Clueless. And sadly, it has to do with those iconic outfits.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Alicia admitted that she was gifted her on-screen wardrobe – but she proceeded to throw away all of it. Every last knee-high pop sock.
‘At that time of my life, I wore jeans and a green t-shirt every single day and that was it. I just didn’t get fashion at all,’ she confessed.
‘I was just kind of a tomboy and I just wasn’t into it, so when we had the [costume] fittings, I was just like, “What is going on? Why am I in these fittings for so long?” And I just didn’t get it until I saw the movie and I was like, “Oh I get it! The costumes are the star of the movie!”
‘I took so [many] of the clothes, and I’m really sad because I don’t have any of them anymore because like a ding dong, I got home with all the clothes and then I was like, “How am I going to wear these Mary Janes out now?”‘ Alicia continued.
‘Like, that girl who wore jeans and a green t-shirt didn’t know how to transition that wardrobe, so I just gave a lot of it away. I don’t have any of it but I had a lot of it.’
