The music video for “Fancy,” Iggy Azalea’s No. 1 hit and the default Song of Summer, pays homage to Clueless, with a plaid-outfitted Azalea ruling over a Beverly Hills–esque high school. Director Amy Heckerling was alerted to the tribute when the entirety of her social circle sent her the link to the highly produced video. “It looked like they had more money for the video than I had for the movie,” she said at Thursday night’s Marc Jacobs–sponsored after-party for the I Origins premiere. “But I was extremely flattered and I thought she was amazing. And whoever did the costumes, I don’t know how they did that.”

Heckerling is currently hard at work on bringing a Clueless to Broadway and has written a book and song lyrics for the musical. Despite being in the “really, really, early, early stages,” the question of whom Heckerling’s ideal Cher would be looms large. “Katy Perry has expressed interest, and I love her to death,” Heckerling said, while acknowledging that Perry’s schedule might make a commitment difficult. “Maybe Iggy wants to do it!”
