Iggy Azalea just released the music video for her song “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX, and it is basically a condensed version of everybody’s favorite nineties movie, “Clueless.”
Australian rapper Iggy plays Cher Horowitz, nailing every detail of her queen-bee vibe, right down to the yellow plaid skirt-suit. Of course, this is a modern, updated version of the classic—instead of the original Cher’s amazing rotating closet, Iggy has a closet app on her iPad.
Elsewhere in the music video, a Dionne lookalike wears a furry hat, Brit pop darling Charli XCX vamps a la Brittany Murphy’s Tai, and a line-up of teen queens dance in sporty, black-and-white outfits on a tennis court.
The real magic is in the attention to detail. We love how committed this homage is. We see Iggy perfecting Cher’s classroom debate hair-flip, a Murray stand-in screaming with a mouth full of braces, and “She’s a full-on Monet” Amber holding her hands up in a big, “whatever” sign.
Here’s the music video:
