Is there another girl-world movie as universally adored and widely-quoted as Mean Girls? It occupies a space somewhere between its successors (and fellow faves), Heathers and Clueless, and though we’ve ditched our Juicy Couture velour zip-ups, the movie still manages to perfectly capture the high school experience. We all remember "The Plastics" at our school, the girls who ate their feelings, the girls who didn't eat anything, the desperate wannabes, the burnouts and, of course, the sexually-active band geeks.
We may no longer be taking style cues from Regina George, but the sentiment remains the same, especially with the emergence of streetstyle blogs (did anyone else start wearing leather overalls and wedges when they saw Miroslava Duma wearing leather overalls and wedges?). We've laid to rest the white Louis Vuitton Murakami bags (can you believe it's been that long?), but we've stayed staunchly anti-sweatpants, and when Jake wears them to the office on a Monday, he can't sit with us. Mean Girls also had its fair share of major beauty moments—foot cream as face cream, sucky nail beds, baby prostitute perfume, secrets…well, the secret to big hair. Of course, no nod to the film would be complete without cameos from Damien (he still “wants his pink shirt back”), Janis Ian (that eyeliner!) and our favorite "cool mom," Mrs. George (a.k.a. Amy Poehler).
And yes, we're still trying to make 'fetch' happen.
PS: Danny DeVito, we love your work!
