Whether you love Iggy Azalea or hate her, if you're a fan of the nineties film 'Clueless', then it's impossible to not love Iggy's new music video with fellow 'quirky girl' Charlie XCX. The video was released earlier this month, but it's just become more well known in the UK over the past week or so, and fans are all going crazy over the utter flawlessness of the vid. If you haven't seen the film Clueless, then *cough it's the most amazing film in the world and basically sums up every teen girls childhood cough* I'll give you a brief summary...
'Cher, a high school student in Beverly Hills, must survive the ups and downs of adolescent life. Her external demeanor at first seems superficial, but rather it hides her wit, charm, and intelligence which help her to deal with relationships, friends, family, school, and the all-important teenage social life.'

Clueless was basically the 'it' film of the mid-late nineties. My Mum's friend went to see it in the cinema when she was younger, so when I was about ten years old and we were sat around the dinner table since I was over at theirs to play with her daughter, she was shocked when I said I hadn't seen it, so she let me watch it, and ever since that day in the summer holidays, I've been obsessed with the main character Cher.
The most important thing by far about the movie is that it pays so much attention to the way all the character dresses, and everytime I watch it, I get different outfit inspirations, whether it be to go with yellow tartan (above and below) or to wear chunky heels with a tight fitted red dress.
All the characters have different styles, but since Cher is the main character, they've made sure you can see her clearly in every seen, as she hardly ever wears anything but bold colours and prints, and her personality on top of that, well, let's just say she's hard to miss.
Iggy makes sure to mirror Cher's personality as she struts down the corridors of the school where the video is filmed, and absolutely rocks all of the inspired outfits from the movie.
I think a lot of people can consider Iggy as a marmite artist, some people get her, some people think she's absolutely off her trolley. But she's different.
By looking at her face and not knowing she was a rapper originally from Australia, you'd think she was just another pretty face, but her style and personality makes her who she is, and although I may not completely be in love with her music, I am in love with her personality.
Charlie XCX also appears on the record, and she may be even crazier than Iggy. You may have heard her single 'superlove' drop in the last recent couple of months, her music is totally wacky and I absolutely love it! I can't wait for these guys to hopefully duet again, and I know it will be even more special than their last encounter!
Thanks for reading, and let me know whether you loved or loathed this Clueless inspired music video, or whether you're a fan of these two or not!
