Nineties style will never go out of fashion – and Cara Delevingne is here to prove it.

On Tuesday, the British model took to Instagram to debut a preppy tartan look, which had her followers drawing similarities to an iconic outfit worn by Alicia Silverstone's character Cher Horowitz in the 1995 film "Clueless."

Delevingne, 28, showed off her outfit in a video, pairing it with dark-rimmed sunglasses and minimal jewelry. In a witty caption under the post, she referenced a now-famous insult thrown at Cher by her friend Tai Frasier in the film.

"You might be surprised to know I'm not actually a virgin and I can drive," Delevingne joked.

The model's three-piece outfit, consisting of a matching blazer, skirt, and corset top, was designed by Anastasia Ostrowsky, the founder of the brand Amuse Bouche. The skirt and corset are priced at $820.27 (£595.00), while the jacket is available for $1,274.82 (£925.00) at the time of writing.

Ostrowsky, 25, told Insider that it wasn't until she finished designing the three tartan pieces that she realized the "Clueless" parallels.

"It was a happy accident. Also, I love costumes and Cher is such an iconic Halloween costume, I was just really happy about how it kind of accidentally went in the right direction," Ostrowsky, who studied fashion at Istituto Marangoni in London, explained.

"That look is so obviously iconic in so many ways, and I think anything yellow tartan is a reference to it because nothing like that has ever really been done before," Ostrowsky said. "But I'm also such a huge fan of Vivienne Westwood, so when I think of tartans, she's kind of the first reference I ever had."

However, the general concept for her collection has a slightly darker inspiration. Ostrowsky revealed her favorite novel, Bram Stoker's "Dracula," influenced her designs.

"I wanted to change the main character of 'Dracula' to be female because I didn't quite like some of the stereotypes and some of the boxes in which women were put within that novel," she said. "With my clothes, I wanted to keep that aesthetic but show a woman doesn't have to be put in any stereotypes."

The designer, who is based in London, is planning to come out with a new winter collection in November 2021, but she stressed it will be small because of how much she values sustainability and "slow fashion."

"I don't want to overproduce or overmake," she said. "I don't always think that something new has to come out all the time."

Meanwhile, Silverstone, 44, has yet to comment on Delevingne's outfit, but the "Clueless" star was quick to celebrate Harry Styles' take on Cher's wardrobe at the 2021 Grammy Awards.
