It's been 23 years since the world was first introduced to Cher Horowitz in the '90s teen flick Clueless. If there's one thing the Beverly Hills diva taught us, it was how to organise a closet. You might recall Cher's high-tech space from the film, in which she gets dressed for school using a computer monitor that pairs her signature look—a yellow-and-black plaid miniskirt and blazer to match—while a clothing rack rotates automatically to help her find exactly what she's looking for. With a Clueless musical on the way and '90s nostalgia in full swing, the interior design experts at Modsy decided it was time to revisit the iconic closet and dream up what it might look like today.
Cher was seriously ahead of her time with her virtual closet technology, but would she have a clunky computer monitor giving her fashion advice in 2018? As if. Today, her smart closet would include a simple iPad built into the wall to sort through her clothes, according to Alessandra Wood, Modsy's director of style and interior design expert.
The space would also contain modern furnishings, bold wallpaper, and an impressive vanity. If you look closely, you'll also spot a few nods to the original movie like a Sonny and Cher poster and a photograph of the ex-stepbrother-turned-boyfriend Paul Rudd. Take a look inside the chic reimagined closet below and shop the pieces for yourself.
"We thought she might replace her Zebra chairs with something a bit more modern though still slightly classic like the Celine bench from West Elm in Wasabi," says Wood. "The brass details and rich velvet upholstery give this chair a touch of glam vibes, making it perfect for Cher." You'll also note her iconic yellow skirt set placed neatly on a mannequin in the corner, a staple of Cher's signature '90s style.
"Cher would be totally into the bold, classic mirrors trending right now," according to Wood. A vintage-inspired ornate mirror leans against the wall in a way that's both modern and classic. "The Nuvolette Fornasetti II wallpaper also adds a whimsical touch, nothing short of Cher’s day-dream driven personality," Wood days. You can also take a peek at her shoe storage cupboards to spot Cher's Mary Janes, a look she could still rock today.
