Chrissy Teigen proves she’s a Clueless fangirl just like the rest of us

Chrissy Teigen may be a celebrity herself, but she’s not immune to the odd moment of excitement upon meeting another big name.

And given her typically unfiltered approach to social media, she was never going to pretend she was anything other than ecstatic to meet the star of iconic Nineties film, Clueless – Alicia Silverstone.

Clearly a huge fan of the fashion-filled film, Teigen asked Silverstone for a photo (like all of us would) – and claimed it was only the second time she’d ever approached a fellow star for a picture.

Taking to Twitter yesterday (22 October) Teigen shared the snap with her millions of followers, saying: “How am I supposed to sleep? I think I've asked for two photos in my entire life. Alicia Silverstone and Beyoncé.”

And who wouldn’t be a little star-struck? Especially since Silverstone was wearing her most iconic outfit from the cult film – channelling Cher Horowitz in a yellow plaid skirt and blazer ensemble, complete with white Mary Janes and matching popsocks. It’s fair to say that the modernised version of Jane Austen’s novel Emma changed how some of us dressed for the rest of the decade...

It turns out that Silverstone was apparently filming an upcoming episode of American TV show Lip Sync Battle, according to Glamour, which Teigen hosts. Stay tuned. 

Just the day before, Teigen proved twinning is winning when she took to Instagram to share a snap of her and her daughter, Luna, wearing matching avocado-print outfits.

“Last day of cookbook shooting!” Teigen wrote on 21 October, referring to her impending second cookbook.

Maybe Teigen will take it one step further and channel Cher Horowitz for Halloween?

We’d be here for it (although we’re rather excited about the ramen idea she’s already teased...).
