Are you as excited as I am over the prospect of dressing up just like Brenda Walsh, Kelly Taylor, and Cher Horowitz?
Anyone at HollywoodLife can vouch for my unhealthy obsession with the 90’s — from my ability to quote practically any episode from the original 90210 and the fact that I daydream about Cher Horowitz’s closet in Clueless, you can only imagine how excited I was to hear about the recent re-making of iconic 90’s dresses!
First, there was the Isaac Mizrahi resort 2011 black, off the shoulder dress complete with a big white bow, that looks super similar to the frock besties Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor both wore to the spring dance junior year on 90210, which led to a total, OMG mortifying moment.
Next, Calvin Klein‘s creative director, Francisco Costa, decided to remake the infamous white mini worn by Cher in Clueless for her first date with Christian. If you can’t remember, I’m sure this dialogue will help refresh your memory!
Mel: What the hell is that?
Cher: A dress.
Mel: Says who?
Cher: Calvin Klein
Like many girls, Ilaria Urbinati, the co-owner of the label Confederacy, had a not-so-secret obsession with the cult classic. “I went into a spazzy explanation of how my formative-years love of Calvin was partly based on the little white Calvin mini dress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless,” Urbinati told Daily Front Row. “So of course I said, Francisco, you need to remake that dress.” So ladies, thanks to Ilaria, and her proud love of Clueless, the infamous white Calvin Klein can be yours — but for a steep price! Available exclusively at Confederacy and in stores retails for $916 and comes in white and red (clear trench not included)!
I love the idea of reviving these 90’s style stars, but I know I may be biased — I’m still holding out for an original 90210– inspired line, (there could be “Andrea” glasses, “Donna Martin” crop-tops, and of course, “Dylan” surfer tanks), but what do you think? Do you hope more designers re-create looks or do you think the idea is just silly?
