The 45-year-old treated fans to a glimpse of the saucy outfit she donned as Elle Woods in the first movie back in 2001, posting a snap of herself holding up the silky corset – which featured a pink fur trim across the bust – and bottoms with giant bunny ears perched atop her head.

Reese will soon be stepping back into character when she begins filming Legally Blonde 3, with Mindy Kaling confirming in March 2020 that she has penned the script for the next installment.

Back in July, Reese marked the 20th anniversary of Legally Blonde, posting a throwback clip of herself floating in a pool, wearing the same shimmery pink bikini that her character wore in the movie, soundtracking it with Hoku's Perfect Day, which was used in the original film's soundtrack.

She wrote a sweet dedication to the movie in her caption, saying: "Omigod you guys ….#LegallyBlonde premiered 20 years ago TODAY! Time flies when you're busy using legal jargon in your everyday life.

"But truly... playing Elle Woods was the role of a lifetime and I'm so honored to have been a part of sharing her story with you all. Every meme, graduation cap, musical number, halloween costume and bend & snap has brought me so much JOY over these past two decades!"

She ended her post with the thought: "I wonder... what will Elle do next?"
