Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) had about 50 wardrobe changes in the movie and first-time viewers will begin to anticipate what epically ’90s outfits Cher and her fashionable friends will wear next. Clueless will make you fall in love with matching plaid prints, pastels and velvet all over again. Also, her computer is programmed to put together outfits, enough said.

This modern-day “Scarlet Letter” probably comes as a surprise because Emma Stone’s character, Olive Penderghast, basically struts around in her underwear for a good portion of the movie. However, she does accomplish the ultimate DIY. I mean, who else could make racy lingerie dress-code-appropriate and a literary reference at the same time?

Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Audrey Hepburn’s iconic role is, in part, so popular because of her fabulous wardrobe. Little black dresses, sparkling statement necklaces and classy cigarette holders trademark her look. She even makes a bathrobe look chic with her perfectly styled hair and flawless winged eyeliner. If you’re going for a classic look that’ll turn heads, start by watching “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

Sex and the City

Just admit it, you wish you could pull off some of the crazy ensembles that only Carrie Bradshaw could put together. Whether you’re a Miranda, Charlotte, Samantha or a Carrie, you’ll drool over the big-time designers and those gorgeous Manolos Bradshaw is famous for. Plus (spoiler), wedding fanatics will find themselves jealous of the wedding dresses Carrie gets to spin around in for an exclusive Vogue shoot. Can I just be Carrie Bradshaw already?

Marie Antoinette

This is a throwback (way back), but this period piece is choc-full of 1800s royalty fashion (Halloween costume idea, anyone?). Corsets, silk, feathers and those ridiculously poufy dresses dominate the film, and you can almost forget that there’s a revolution going on outside of the pretty palace gates. Plus, director Sophia Coppola adds a modern touch to the film so you won’t feel like you’re stuck in a world history class.

The Devil Wears Prada

Based off of Lauren Weisberger’s bestseller by the same name, the tale of Andy Sachs’ rise (and fall) in the fashion magazine world. Her transformation from bargain bin buys to sleek Chanel boots has to be one of the best wardrobe makeovers to date. Although the movie may be off-putting for those who wish to work in the fashion industry, the fashion is undeniably great.
