If there's anyone who can relate to the disenfranchisement of being an over-privileged teenager, it's Willow Smith. That's why having the young style icon channel Cher Horowitz from the classic teen comedy Clueless for a new photo shoot in CR Fashion Book is a stroke of genius.
Keep scrolling for a look at Willow as the teenager who taught an entire generation how to whip their hair back and forth.
While Willow dons Alicia Silverstone's classic matchy-matchy yellow skirt suit — which, believe it or not, CR editor-in-chief Carine Roitfeld ordered from Halloween costume site Yandy.com — she pairs it with some accessories that are distinctly her own style: a head wrap, mismatched socks and platform creepers. In other words, you can get it too.
The results would even get Dionne's stamp of approval:

The quotes from Willow's accompanying interview, however, are a far cry from Cher quoting Macbeth (or was it Polonius?) in Clueless: "To break the barrier and walk between the worlds of reality that we know and the world of thought and imagination, the only thing you will ever need [is] the capacity to see beyond the limitations you've placed on yourself," she tells the magazine.
