You look like Pippi Longstocking.

Clueless (1995)

Mixing such sources as Emma and Gigi into a slice of pure 90s pop culture.
A great deal of fun, clever, frequently hilarious, incredibly performed, Alicia Silverstone unfortunately never got material as good as this again.
Filled with great comedy ringers and breezily presented it spearheaded a 90s high school rom coms based on classic literature period (the forgettable She's All That, the rather splendid 10 Things I hate about You probably wouldn't have happened without this) and continued to mine a satirical bent from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (whose series got it a second chance after Clueless came out but beat the Silverstone vehicle to the cinemas by couple of years) of presenting so called vapid valley girls and giving them depth, nuance and strength.
