    The Definitive Ranking Of Every Outfit Worn By Elle Woods In "Legally Blonde"

    "Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed"

    44.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Elle you are fantastic and strong. That coat is not.

    43.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    OK you can't actually see her outfit, but we can all agree that serious lawyer Elle was never going to get top spot.

    42.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    I'll forgive for those loose pink trousers because you're sad.

    41.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Skinny scarf and tea cosy hat, need I say more?

    40.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    The pink is good, the v-neck sweater not so much.

    39.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Again, you can't really see her outfit. What we do know: not enough pink for Elle!

    38.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    This jacket looks like it would be alright behind all the magazines and bath goods.

    37.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Everyone loves a robe, so I'm not even going to say anything.

    36.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    SO. MANY. ZEBRA. STRIPES.

    35.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    That blue looks amazing with Elle's hair, but the outfit is kind of so-so.

    34.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Layered lace cami tops and striped slip skirts are so 2001. I can't even deal.

    33.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    You can't really see this outfit, but what's visible looks Ok.

    32.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    This look is pretty chic, but these prints are all wrong.

    31.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Elle's Harvard sweat is cute and looks pretty comfy.

    30.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    TBH, the iBook that everyone NEEDED back in 2001 kind of steals the show here.

    29.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    No one looks this incredible working out. It's not even fair.

    28.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Shirt's not great, but I'm all about her hair.

    27.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    This friendship was perfect. Elle's pink poncho and pulled back pony: not so much.

    26.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    The first of a long list of sequin bikinis to make an appearance.

    25.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    I was starting to worry we wouldn't see any silk camis on this list. They were all the rage back in the '00s and Elle, obviously, rocked hers in pink.

    24.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Elle's study-look is cute and comfy.

    23.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Glitter dress and nubbins — HELLO!

    22.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    If airbrush shirts and Tiffany jewellery doesn't scream '00s, I don't know what does.

    21.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    I'm all about this look. Although, it is a bit bland for Elle.

    20.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    No one looks this good taking an exam.

    19.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    The second of our sequin bikinis. This green one doesn't quite match up to the famous pink one.

    18.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Petition to make glittery roll neck tanks a thing again.

    17.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Butterfly clips, pink leopard print, and baked goods — I'd let you join my study group, Elle!

    16.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Some people hated Elle's professional look, but this pussy bow blouse and peek-a-boo slip are still playful and fun.

    15.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Of all the serious lawyer looks, this one was the best.

    14.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    "Whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed."

    Low slung trousers, shiny gypsy shirt, and a beret — what's not to love?

    13.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Halter sun dress and Tiffany heart necklace? 2001 called and said, "SLAYYYYYYYY."

    12.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Was anyone else bummed when Elle didn't buy this dress?

    11.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    If a boy dumps you when you look that great, he's stupid and you deserve better.

    10.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Our first introduction to Elle does not disappoint — this look IS ~Legally Blonde~.

    9.

    MGM / Via Type A Films

    Elle's first taste of being a lawyer was complemented perfectly by this look. More lawyers should wear fashion glasses, fluffy collars, and pigtail braids.

    8.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Elle Woods has a 4.0 GPA, got a 179 on her LSATs, and wears sparkly pink bikinis. What are you going to do about it?

    7.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Praise Elle and her T-bar shoes and capris for introducing us to the "Bend and Snap," changing the world forever.

    6.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    If you're trying to make your ex jealous, there's nothing quite like a sequin bikini and fur coat.

    5.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Elle's pink leather suit and matching glasses were the early '00s dream.

    4.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    Elle's first day outfit was the envy of every girl in the world.

    3.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    It's technically not even an outfit, but Elle graduated Harvard Law as valedictorian and if that's not empowering AF I don't know what is.

    2.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    No one ever made humiliation look so incredible. This also signified the point Elle decided to prove herself as a lawyer and stop pursuing Warner — it's girl power at its finest, but not quite worthy of the top spot.

    1.

    Type A Films / Via MGM

    ICONIC!

    Elle wins her court case because she stops trying to be someone she's not. This pink outfit was the perfect in-your-face look for everyone who doubted she could be blonde, beautiful, and girly, and still be a kick-ass lawyer.
