July 19 marks the 20th anniversary of Clueless, a cult favorite of the ’90s so quotable that it likely paved the way for film characters in the years that followed. The movie—labeled as a sleeper hit—was perhaps most influential in its effect on fashion, with inspired trends popping up on runways since its premiere in 1995.
Clueless brought its relatively unknown stars into the mainstream by assembling a crew of actors with major star potential. Such as Alicia Silverstone, who had her heyday in the ’90s with Aerosmith music videos (exhibits a, b, and c) and became actor-turned-activist. Clueless gave its stars validity with its smartly-developed characters of substance that allowed said unknowns to display their acting chops.
A lot has happened in the 20 years since Clueless hit theaters, so in honor of its anniversary, let’s take a look at what it’s stars have been up to since then.
