It’s not often that a celebrity Halloween costume truly impresses. Celebs have a wide variety of resources available to them, so you kind of expect their Halloween ensembles to be over the top, elaborate, or stylish beyond words.

Clueless is far from the only thing Silverstone has starred in, but it was an unforgettable performance, and her choice of using the outfit for Halloween just underlines how timeless that yellow plaid outfit is.
