The day has come: Ariana Grande’s “Thank U, Next” music video has finally arrived. After teasing the project on social media for weeks, the pop star debuted the visuals for her post-breakup bop, featuring tributes to some of our favorite 2000s films—Mean Girls, Legally Blonde, 13 Going on 30, and Bring It On.
In just five minutes and thirty seconds, Grande delivered a wild ride of chick flick heaven—recreating some of the greatest early aughts movie scenes and surprising us with the most epic Kris Jenner cameo of all time (as Regina George’s mom).
But in the midst of all that, she also recreated some of the most iconic cinematic fashion moments of the early 2000s—from Elle Woods’ Harvard application video outfit in Legally Blonde to Regina George’s Mean Girlslooks and even the cheerleader uniforms from Bring It On. Just in case you missed any of the outfit references while completely fangirling during you first watch, we broke down every single look Grande wore in the video.
The Mean Girls Looks
Ari opened the “thank u, next” video wearing Regina George’s signature initial necklace, diamond earrings, and a pink tank top layered over a black cami. Oh, and she accessorized with her own version of the Burn Book, of course.
She then recreated all the looks from the iconic mall scene—complete with the real Aaron Samuels.
The original for reference, just in case it somehow isn’t burned in your memory for life:
And last but not least, the “Jingle Bell Rock” scene complete with patent over-the-knee boots and mini Santa outfits.
Let’s not forget Kris Jenner as Regina George’s mom in a pink Juicy Couture tracksuit:
