As If! The best fashion lookbook ever

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-42Sex. Clothes. Popularity. Whatever.

I’ll admit to not being the most stylish cat in town… but I am like, totally buggin’, because something amazing has happened. Something I am actually obsessed with has become fashionable!

Yes, apparently Clueless – one of my favourite films ever, re-watched religiously every few months [Boyfriend: Didn’t we just watch Clueless like… last week?], the script of which is committed to memory ‘as if’ I learnt it in Sunday school – is currently the hottest style inspiration for designers. Short of the catwalks being inspired by the wardrobes of Disney princesses or Jem & The Holograms, I am likely to never be this en vogue ever again!

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-28Do you prefer fashion victim or ensembly challenged?

Whether it’s the recent EW Weekly reunion that has sparked interest (and the fact that Stacey Dash is a never-ageing WITCH) or it’s the continuation of the current craze for all things 90s, I am totally on board. Other brands have so far kept their Clueless inspiration as a mere nod or wink, but Wildfox (who you might remember from their super cute Sweet Valley High homage) have made their whole SS13 lookbook basically re-enact scenes from the film. LIFE IS GOOD.

Apart from the fact that their Tai is not really on the money, this is probably the best lookbook ever. Wildfox clothes on their own? Meh whatever. Wildfox clothes dressed up in scenarios ripped from Clueless? Shut the door, call me Mary, and I’ll have one of each in every colour please.

So here for your viewing pleasure, with accompanying quotes from the scenes I was reminded of just to put the fact that I know the entire bloody script OFF BY HEART to some use – enjoy!


WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-59So OK, you’re probably thinking, ‘Is this, like, a Noxzema commercial or what?!’ but seriously, I actually have a way normal life for a teenage girl.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-1Dionne: Hello! That was a stop sign!
Cher: I totally paused.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-4Isn’t my house classic? The columns date all the way back to 1972.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-10Amber: My plastic surgeon doesn’t want me doing any activity where balls fly at my nose.
Dionne: Well, there goes your social life.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-12Attention to detail alert: Marvin the Martian drawings on Tai’s notebook!
Random Tai quote:
Shit, you guys got Coke here?!
Cher: Well, this is America.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-72Dionne: Dude, what’s wrong? Are you suffering from buyer’s remorse?
Cher: God no! Nothing like that!

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-20Cher: You notice any positive changes in her?
Josh: Yes, it’s under your tutelage she’s exploring the challenging world of the bare midriff.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-36Cher, I don’t wanna do this anymore. And my buns… they don’t feel nothin’ like steel.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-41Josh: Be seeing you!
Tai: Yeah, I hope not sporadically.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-46Cher’s Dad: What the hell is that?
Cher: A dress.
Cher’s Dad: Says who?
Cher: Calvin Klein.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-55He said you gave him toothache.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-60Channelling Amber… Hellooooo?! Was I the only one who thought it reeked?
Cher: No, I believe that’s your designer imposter perfume.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-34Ugh… the maudlin music of the university radio station. Wah wah wah. What is it about college and cry-baby music?

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-25Well, this would never happen. Let’s not forget, Cher has that amazing computer which puts all her outfits together (why has this not been invented yet?!). And remember: ‘I don’t trust mirrors, so I always take Polaroids’.

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-24 Did my hair get flat? Did I stumble into some bad lighting? What’s wrong with me?

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-30Rollin’ with my homies… *cute dance*

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-47Cher: I want to do something good for humanity.
Josh: How about sterilization?

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-62You’re on the freeway!!
Which segues nicely into one of my fave quotes… Yo look, are you bitches blind or something? Your man Christian is a cake-boy! He’s a disco-dancing, Oscar Wilde reading, Streisand ticket-holding friend of Dorothy, know what I’m saying?

WILDFOX_SPRING_13_CLUELESS-70I was just totally clueless.
Oh my God, I love Josh. I am majorly, totally, butt-crazy in love with Josh!

And now I need to re-watch Clueless… and I didn’t even get to mention about being a full-on Monet. Well done everyone.
