Legally Blonde

The romantic comedy "Legally Blonde" and its sequel are a hymn to feminine cliché.  The movie from 2001, starring Reese Witherspoon,  tells the story of the Al Woods, who acts like the classic stigma of the blonde girl: always smiling, has no awareness, super sensitive and most important - mainly interested in fostering and fashion. During the movie we are surprised to find out that this blonde girl is actually pretty smart and manages to finish a law degree from Harvard College and  to solve a complexed murder case.

The trivial message of the movie is that we should not fall into the trap of stigmas and sometimes the people who seems foolish or not serious can be revealed to us as very smart. Another trivial message of the movie is to believe in yourself and go through with your dreams. I think The movie tried to convey another message too: it showed us that a woman succeed in life, even with a serious career in laws, while keeping the extreme femininity. In our world,  which is still a men world, professional women often feel (rightly) that they have to hide as many feminine elements in order to  progress , and the movie tried to show an original and an optimistic alternative.

In order to present heroine of the movie as a stylish blond babe, the film had become a one big fashion show with a variety of feminine outfits - especially pink.

Here are some examples:










With a jeans, sweatshirt and a scarf  - it's amazing how a little scarf can make a difference.



And last but not least - The Barbie doll inspired by the movie, that in many ways close a circle because the character is basically a kind of Barbie herself.
