Calvin Klein Remakes the Little White Dress From 'Clueless'
When Ilaria Urbinati, the co-owner of L.A. boutique Confederacy met with Calvin Klein creative director Francisco Costa about stocking Calvin Klein Collection, the stylist-turned-shopkeeper had one very specific request: Remake the little white dress from Clueless! “I sort of geeked out on him, [explaining] how my formative-years love of Calvin Klein was partly based on the little white minidress Alicia Silverstone wears in Clueless,” Urbanati told InStyle.com. “I re-eanacted the entire scene with Cher and her father—’Cher, what are you wearing?’ ‘A dress!’ ‘Says who?’ ‘Calvin Klein!’–and of course I said, ‘Francisco, you need to remake that dress!'” And he didn’t need much convincing. After watching a clip of the famous scene, the designer had the original pattern unearthed from the archives in Italy and re-created exclusively for Urbinati’s boutique, reports Instyle.com. The slim-fitting white slipdress—as well as a hot red version—are already available at shopconfederacy.com for $915! Though we might be saving up for awhile, we’re sure one of Confederacy’s star customers, such as Jessica Alba or Ashley Greene, may just scoop one up soon enough.
