Alicia Silverstone in the white Calvin Klein number in Clueless
Here's a cute little fashion anecdote. Ilaria Urbinati, celebrity stylist and co-owner of the L.A. boutique Confederacy, gushed about her love for the iconic fashion film of the 90s, Clueless, when she was introduced to Calvin Klein Creative Director Francisco Costa. "Cher’s wardrobe in Clueless literally changed my life and apparently I’m not alone," Urbinati later explained to In Style. “I sort of geeked out on him, [explaining] how my formative-years love of Calvin Klein was partly based on the little white minidress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless. I reenacted the entire scene with Cher and her father—‘Cher, what are you wearing?’ ‘A dress!’ ‘Says who?’ ‘Calvin Klein!’—and of course I said, ‘Francisco, you need to remake that dress!’”
Costa was apparently so taken with Urbinati's enthusiasm that he went home, watched the scene on YouTube, had the original dress pattern dug out of the archives in Italy and had it re-created exclusively for Urbinati’s boutique! So cute! (Confederacy will begin carrying pieces from Costa’s Calvin Klein Collection this fall.) The dress retails for $915 and will come in Cher’s original white as well as a shade Urbinati describes as a “HOT” red. If you're heading out to L.A., snap up your own Cher classic when the store begins stocking the dress, effective immediately. As for the rest of us, we can invest in our own LWD at shopconfederacy.com.
YES! I LOOK FORWARD TO #GROWINGYOUNGER
