Film style icon: Elle Woods

Last week I rewatched Legally Blonde (2001) for the 100th time and if you love pink like I do, you don’t have to look any further for inspiration. Elle Woods played by Reese Witherspoon is the number one inspiration when it comes to dressing in pink. I’d decided to do this post a long time ago, but it was very nice to rewatched all of Elle’s amazing outfits. I rewatched Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blonde last week as well, but I’ve decided to only feature looks from the first film.

Elle’s signature colour is obviously pink; hot pink to be exact. This matching hot pink leather outfit is probably difficult to pull off for most people, but we can still take inspiration from it. I sure wouldn’t mind owning a pink leather jacket.

This look is quite different from Elle’s other looks. The shirt and tie with the cardigan that looks a bit like a dressing gown is a very unique look, and I love it!

This outfit, on the other hand, is so Elle. I want that pink faux fur so bad!

Let’s not forget about the iconic bend and snap. This outfit is so cute, and I’m obsessed with the cropped kick flare jeans.

And of course Elle nails her first lawsuit wearing a beautiful hot pink dress with matching heels. She really brightens up that dull courtroom.
