With her successful production company Pacific Standard and an Academy Award under belt, Reese Witherspoon is a serious force in Hollywood. But, to our delight, she still feels nostalgic about one of her most iconic characters: Elle Woods of Legally Blonde.

Witherspoon recently shared a sketch on Twitter of one of her outfits from Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blue, done by the movie’s London-born costume designer, Sophie de Rakoff. It was accompanied by the caption: “Capitol Barbie!”

The caption and the sketch call out “Jackie O” as the inspiration for this look — and no doubt, she’s the spitting image of the First Lady in her infamous pink Chanel suit complete with pillbox hat, the one she was wearing on the sad day that John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

We love that more than a decade later, Reese is still having fond flashbacks to her beloved role as Elle Woods. But does an outfit like this allow one to still properly do the bend and snap?

We must say, if we ever worked in an office that required suits, this might be the kind you’d see us wearing. We wonder if Sophie de Rakoff takes custom orders…
