The actor debuted on the video-sharing platform on Saturday with a recreation of an iconic scene from "Clueless
." In her first clip, she appears in a replica of the yellow plaid blazer seen at the beginning of the 1995 classic, while No Doubt

For “Clueless” fans, the video may be the closest thing to a modern take on the film in a long time. Last month, it was announced that the NBC
streaming service Peacock had scrapped plans to revive the film as a mystery
series centered on Cher’s best friend, Dionne, played by Stacey Dash in the original.
