Almost 20 years after the 1995 cult-classic Clueless hit cinemas, Iggy pays homage to the film in the music video for her new single. Azalea herself is a perfect copy of Cher Horowitz (Alicia Silverstone) whilst wearing a surprisingly modest recreation of that iconic yellow plaid outfit compared to Azalea’s usual attire, strutting around the same high school where the real Clueless was filmed. The video even features a lookalike of Cher’s best friend Dee, seen wearing a copy of the very top hat the original Dee (Stacey Dash) is wearing when first shown in the film.

Azalea and Charli XCX’s ‘Fancy’ will be available to buy from the 6th of April, and Island Def Jam will be releasing Iggy Azalea’s first full-length album The New Classic on the 14th of April. The album features collaborative songs with the likes of Mavado, T.I, and Watch The Duck. Fancy is the fourth track to feature on The New Classic.

Iggy Azalea first debuted as an artist with her free only release of her mixtape entitled ‘Ignorant Art’ in 2011, and has since steadily risen to fame  through determination and hard work. HSe has been nominated for and won numerous music awards, such as Attitude Awards Breakthrough Artist of 2013, The Boombox Fan Choice Awards Hip-Hop Video of the Year, and BBC Radio 1Xtra Hot Summer Awards Hottie of the Summer.
