Legally Blonde 3

Elle Woods from Legally Blonde is just an iconic character. First played by Reese Witherspoon in 2001, Elle is permanently dressed in pink, has long blond hair and totes a miniature dog, and is someone easily mistaken for a ‘bimbo’. But then she goes and gets into Harvard Law School.

The movie was reprised in 2003, and now it’s been announced that a third installment is in the works — starring Witherspoon and co-written by the brilliant Mindy Kaling.

Even though the still from the movie announcing the news is peak quarantine mood – Elle with messy hair, wearing an old dressing gown – the rest of the original film’s fashion is anything but.

Kaling wrote of the news on her Instagram: “Elle Woods is so iconic, proving you can be girly and smart at the same time. Bend and snap, people!”

The initial movie debunked the idea that what you look like signifies how intelligent you are. And the influence of Woods’ Barbie-doll aesthetic and ultra-feminine early Noughties fashion can still be felt and seen mimicked today – by everyone from Ariana Grande to Kim Kardashian.

The third movie has a lot to live up to. So, as we wait for it, let’s take a look back at the best fashion moments from the first film.
