Iggy Azalea channels Cher from Clueless in new music video


Ever since she strutted onto our screens in 1995 with an Alice band, perfect hair and a shopping habit to make most credit cards blush, Cher Horowitz from Clueless acquired something of a cult status for us. And now the 90s high school heroine has found a new lease of life thanks to the latest music video from Iggy Azalea.

The Australian rap star, 23, used Cher as her muse in the video for her new single Fancy, released today. As these photos show, she did a pretty accurate job of mimicking Alicia Silverstone's iconic Beverly Hills socialite, copying everything from her yellow tartan two-piece to schoolroom and schoolyard scenes from the hit 1995 movie.

Azalea shot the video in LA last month. "We did the highway scene and we shot down the highway. We got a crazy grandma and trucks, and it was a lot. It was very fun," she told radio station Power 106, referring to the infamous scene where Cher's friend Dionne accidentally steers her jeep onto the freeway while learning to drive.

Azalea's team even tried to get Silverstone involved in a cameo for the video, but they weren't able to arrange it in time. "Hopefully Alicia thinks that I did it justice," the singer said.

Clueless is pitched as a modern version of Jane Austen's 1815 novel Emma and became a smash hit on its release, shifting over $56million at the box office. It made a household names of Silverstone, who scored a place in cult movie history with Cher's flawless style and irresistible truisms - "Men should be like Kleenex, soft, strong and disposable".

Azalea first hit the big time last year, when her breakthrough underground track Work took the music world by storm. She has since secured support dates with Beyonce for the Australian arm of the Mrs Carter World Tour and is set to release her debut album, The New Classic, later this year.

Fancy, Azalea's latest release, is a stripped back production featuring Charlie XCX and brings a slightly different sound to the artist's previous work, with an infectious retro-induced synth. Watch it here:
