Cher’s Calvin Klein gown makes a comeback.
It has been 26 years since “As if” and “No matter” turned popular culture staples and a method icon was born in Alicia Silverstone’s Cher Horowitz.
To rejoice the July nineteenth anniversary of the movie’s launch, Silverstone, now 44, recruited her son 10-year-old son Bear to recreate one of many film’s most memorable moments for her TikTok account.
Within the video, Silverstone as soon as once more rocks a white, spaghetti-strap slip gown paying homage to the one Cher wears within the movie earlier than her evening out at a Mighty Mighty Bosstones live performance with Christian (Justin Walker), Tai (Brittany Murphy) and Josh (Paul Rudd).
Together with her son enjoying Cher’s dad Mel (Dan Hedaya), he asks her what the hell she’s carrying. “A gown,” says Cher. “Says who?” he asks. Her response: “Calvin Klein.” Whereas the recreation ends with him telling her it seems to be like underwear, within the movie, she grabs one thing to cowl her up — just for it to be a very sheer wrap.
Talking with Vogue in 2020 for the film’s twenty fifth anniversary, costume designer Mona Might talked about monitoring down the one Silverstone would go on to put on within the movie.
“The story within the script was concerning the bare gown, so we knew we needed to discover one for her. I could not make each gown. So we discovered a bunch of stuff off-the-rack,” mentioned Might. “Quite a lot of stuff seemed too bare, too tight, or too spandex-y. This Calvin Klein gown was good on Alicia as a result of it was matte. It was white, not nude, which felt higher than being on the nostril with a nude colour. For somebody just like the dad, clearly it learn underwear.”
“After which the most effective joke is then we tried a bunch of overlays. I feel it was Vivienne Tam. After we put it on, it was see-through, and it simply made the joke even funnier,” she added.
This is not the primary time Silverstone has recreated a second from “Clueless” on her TikTok channel, which she launched again in June.
In her very first video, she as soon as once more donned her character’s notorious plaid, yellow swimsuit jacket — and pushes her son out of the best way as she exclaims, “Ugh, as if!” to No Doubt’s “Only a Lady.”
She wore the identical look again in 2019 when she carried out Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” on “Lip Sync Battle” — after Azalea paid homage to “Clueless” within the unique music video.
