When it comes to iconic, cult CLASSIC '90s movies, few have stood the test of time quite like Clueless.

It's hard to believe that Cher, Dionne and Tai have been our BFF's for 27 years now! I mean, what did we do before this movie? What did we say?! How did we dress?!

We truly owe so much pop culture history to this iconic film.

The year was 1995. The only fashion trend that mattered was plaid and shift dresses, and bucket hats, of course.

Clueless turns 27 years old today and it's hard to believe so much time has passed since this iconic movie graced the big screen!

Alicia Silverstone will always be the second most iconic Cher in the business.


When it was first released, Clueless was the unexpected hit of the year!

The film grossed $10,612,443 in its opening weekend alone, which means it came second only to Apollo 13!

The movie was filmed in 40 DAYS and get this: the films writer and director Amy Heckerling studied actual high school students from Beverly Hills in order to totally nail their fashion and lingo.


We love a dedicated female director!

Alicia Silverstone herself took to Instagram to celebrate this momentous occassion.

Sharing an edited highlight reel of Cher's most iconic moments, Alicia wrote, "27 years ago, a bad [expletive] was born. Happy anniversary, Cher!"

It's clear that Clueless has one hell of a dedicated cult following and its legacy will continue to live on. I can't wait to watch it 5 times this weekend!
