Reese Witherspoon's Inherent Vice Premiere Look Channeled Elle Woods, But with a Hint Of Edge

Pretty in pink never goes out of style. Though Reese Witherspoon is nominated for a Golden Globe for her raw and gritty movie Wild, it was one of her older characters we were reminded of when Witherspoon attended the Inherent Vice premiere on Wednesday. And no one is mad about it.

The blonde actress took a style cue from Elle Woods, wearing a pink Balenciaga sheath dress for the Hollywood premiere. The bubblegum pink mini dress was sleeveless, with a slight metallic texture to it. Though the 38-year-old paired the dress with neutral beige pumps, she really gave us Legally Blonde flashbacks with her matching pink lipstick and glittering diamond earrings. But to remind us that she's Reese and has a bit of an edge, (don't forget, she does not want to be America's sweetheart), she forwent Elle's bouncy, voluminous curls in favor of a sleek, mod ponytail. Combined with her dark, smokey eye make-up, the Wild star gave us a taste of her most iconic role, but still stayed true to her own, personal style. And she looks sweet as sugar with just a hint of spice. Now, I'm dying to see what she's going to wear to the Globes.
