Kim Kardashian has had some memorable Halloween costumes over the years. She’s been Anna Wintour, Tejano queen Selena, and even Madonna, but this year might mark her best outfit yet. On Thursday, October 31, she posted a photo of herself in a blond wig, touting a bag with a very familiar-looking chihuahua in it and holding a pink feather pen. Yup, it was all in the style of the one and only Elle Woods from the beloved rom-com Legally Blonde.
Kardashian even went the extra mile by posting an entire video inspired by Woods’s Harvard admissions tape. She recreated some of Woods’s most iconic scenes and lines, including the brilliant “I’m able to recall hundreds of important details at the drop of a hat.” Kim wore several of Elle’s looks while recording the video, including the hot pink dress and neon green bikini that Reese Witherspoon made famous in the film.
The costume is clearly poking fun at Kim Kardashian’s goal of becoming a lawyer. Skeptics mocked her after she told Vogue earlier this year she was pursuing a law career and was hoping to take the bar in 2022. “I had to think long and hard about this,” she said. Her decision came after got involved with the justice system while working to help release Alice Marie Johnson, a grandmother who had been serving a life sentence for a first offense, nonviolent drug charge. “I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more,” Kardashian said. This Elle Woods bit proves Kardashian is taking the criticism surrounding her career pivot lightly. Reese Witherspoon is probably living for this, I’m sure. Who knows? Maybe Kim will make an appearance in Legally Blonde 3.
