Reese Witherspoon kept 77 pairs of shoes from Legally Blonde

It looks like returning for Legally Blonde 3 won’t be too big a deal for Reese Witherspoon, since all she needs to do is dust off her wardrobe and she’s ready to go.

The actress revealed on Graham Norton’s talk show on Friday that she kept all of her Elle Woods clothes, including a quite impressive 77 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes – including those iconic vinyl wedges.

Reese, who is now starring with Jennifer Aniston on Morning Show, cleverly asked to keep the wardrobe as part of her contract.

‘I kept the whole wardrobe including 77 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes. I had it written in my contract! I didn’t touch them until the 15th anniversary and then had a lot of fun trying them on with my daughter. Some fit and some didn’t, but it was really cool,’ she said.

I think we can all agree Reese’s daughter Ava is one lucky thing. The actress also explained it was better to keep them, otherwise they would’ve gone to waste, ‘they are just going to put them in a warehouse and then nobody knows where it all went,’ she said.

Dame Julie Andrews was also part of the celebrity panel, and confessed she too kept something from her Mary Poppins wardrobe, ‘I kept the pretty pink buttoned up shoes that Mary wore when she walked out with Burt. They are now door stops filled with sand.’

Two women after my own heart.
