As if Alicia Silverstone was going to let Cher Horowitz’s wardrobe go to waste.
Appearing on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” the 41-year-old actress revealed she took home costumes from 1995’s “Clueless,” while discussing her role as a ’70s housewife on Paramount Network’s freshman series “American Woman.”
“Judy Gelman is our costume designer and she is brilliant. I wear a dress that [model] Twiggy wore, which is very exciting,” Silverstone gushed. “Judy and I would look through the wardrobe, and I was like, ‘Can I have that one?’ And I took it home, and sure enough, there’s no way I can wear it in real life, and I did this on ‘Clueless,’ I took so many costumes home. But you know, the knee-highs with the Mary Jane in normal world doesn’t really work.”
Though Silverstone didn’t divulge which costumes she grabbed, Silverstone did learn a thing or two from fellow fashionista and “American Woman” co-producer, Kyle Richards, namely her gender.
“I went to my meeting with the producers and the director and the [show’s] creator, John Riggi,” she said. “And I’m sitting in the room going, where’s that guy, Kyle? I know I’m supposed to meet a producer named Kyle, and he’s a guy, right? Kyle’s a guy name, so that’s what I thought. And then I soon realized that Kyle was not a man, that Kyle was Kyle Richards, as she was talking.”
She continued, “I don’t know how it was revealed to me, but it became clear that she was the one.”
“American Woman” is inspired by the childhood of the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star.
