Celebrity Monday - Reese Witherspoon as Elle Woods (Legally Blonde)

Before I watched the legally blond movie, I didn't know who Reese Witherspoon was. She had done such a great job on that movie that it got "stuck" on my mind - I know there are a lot people who don't like this movie, but everybody needs a laugh sometimes. She was cute and spectacular at the same time! - I can't even believe has been over 10 years!!
Reese Witherspoon had won Hollywood with this movie as it was the one that got her  REALLY going on her actress career.

2001 marked her career's turning point with the breakout role as Elle Woods in the box office hit Legally Blonde, and in 2002 she starred in Sweet Home Alabama, which became her biggest commercial film success to date. 2003 saw her return as lead actress and executive producer of Legally Blonde 2:  -

The film stars Reese Witherspoon a sorority girl who struggles to win back her ex-boyfriend by earning a law degree, along with Luke Wilson as a young attorney she meets during her studies, Matthew Davis as the ex-boyfriend, Selma Blair as his new fiancée, Victor Garber and Holland Taylor as law professors, Jennifer Coolidge as a manicurist, and Ali Larter as a fitness instructor accused of murder. -

Been talent, beautiful and successfully as a actress and producer gave her not only fame, but also a Barbie Doll for the legally Blonde 2 movie . Mattel released on 2003 a Barbie doll designer by Sharon Zuckerman:

Barbie captures Elle's style from a pivotal scene in the movie when Elle takes her cause to Congress. Mimicking the original design by the film's costume designer, Sophie de Rakoff Carbonell, Barbie wears a crepe pink suit with a matching pillbox-style hat and strappy pink heels. She accessorizes with tiny pearl-esque earrings and a matching double strand pearl-esque necklace that are reminiscent of the Mikimoto necklace and earrings seen in the film. She "carries" with her a pink and white polka-dotted tote bag, along with her beloved Chihuahua, who "wears" a matching pink suit. The finishing touch to her politico power suit is her "staff" badge, which she clips to the front of her suit jacket.

The doll is really cute as represent very well the cutesy and sweetness of the character.

Hope everyone have a great week!


  1. Reese is so beautiful. I don't think Mattel's sculpt caught her likeness but it was a nice fashion and a fun doll, anyway.

    2. Hi Roville,
      I agree with you. The doll is very "barbiesh", just like the caracther on the movie, but no, they didn't try to make look like the actress, her face is just an average barbie mold :-(
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. ello from Spain: I don`t like Reese as an actress. The pink barbie I love it! I like very much her dog... We keep in touch.

  3. I love Reese as an actress, legally blonde is one of my favourite comedies, and that beautiful doll is now part of my collection thanks to my husband. I just adore her!

    1. Good for you Rossetti (thanks for your hubby),
      She's a cute doll and I really like the movie as well, you get good a laugh from it.
