Australian rapper Iggy Azalea has summoned the mighty forces of Cher Horowitz for the video of her new single, “Fancy,” from her upcoming album The New Classic, out April 14— and it is hands-down the most flawless tribute to the iconic film Clueless this world will ever see.

Whether you came into existence in 1980 or in 1995, chances are you’ve quoted this film at least 1,000 times already—because, like, how isn’t this movie applicable to all aspects of life? (“Tardiness is not something you can do on your own. Many, many people contributed to my tardiness.” Thank you, Travis.)

For the music video, the 23-year-old rapper and model got nostalgic with British singer Charli XCX, who you’ll see honoring the persona that is Tai. Throughout the video, Azalea and XCX revisit all of the movie’s best scenes—from debate class to the remarkable driving lesson— even going as far as shooting at the same school. And the fashion? You can bet your Christian Diors that it was absolutely major.

Donning Cher’s yellow tartan ensemble and every bit of fluff imaginable, Azalea combined a quintessential 90s culture moment with her hip-hop vibes. Though we could never imagine Cher Horowitz ever being “ensembly challenged,” this young Aussie brought it all together with some major beats and classic outfits—a sound and look that will be totally trending in the music world of 2014.

Check out the video below, and just try to fight the urge to watch Clueless again. “And in conclusion, may I please remind you it does not say RSVP on the Statue of Liberty!”
