For most of us, Alicia Silverstone defined 90s style. Or rather, her fabulous character Cher from the classic Clueless did! The plaid skirts, the berets, those sunglasses…everything about it makes us want to throw on some acid washed jeans, pound a Surge, jump into our Volkswagon New Beetle and blare “Steal My Sunshine” as loud as we can. People did that stuff, right? Was that just us? That’s what was so great about the 90s: It was a lawless time when you could totally do your own thing, like wearing white bell bottoms and a cowboy hat, a leather jump suit, or a leopard print see-through blouse. It didn’t matter!
And trust us, Alicia did all of those things. We’ve got the proof in the gallery below! The lovely Ms. Silverstone turns 36 today, and spends much of her time with her boy Bear Blu, and feeding him like a momma bird by spitting chewed food into his mouth. There’s a sentence we never thought we’d write! But she’s never far from her movie past. She has a recurring role on Suburgatory as the love interest of her former Clueless costar Jeremy Sisto! The universe wants them together, you guys!
In honor of Alicia’s big day, we’ve assembled her 20 most awesomely crazy looks from that fashion free-for-all that we call the 90s. Enjoy!
