Ava Phillippe is a dead ringer for Elle Woods in pink

Elle Woods would certainly not object to this red carpet style! Ava Phillippe inspired double takes on Tuesday, January 16, when she attended the Stella McCartney Autumn 2018 collection launch event in L.A. wearing an outfit that called to mind her mom Reese Witherspoon’s iconic Legally Blonde character.

Wearing a hot pink sweetheart-neck blouse with peplum sleeves, the 18-year-old beauty paid homage to the fictional character’s love of all things pink. After all, who can forget that fabulous magenta leather pencil skirt and motorcycle jacket Woods arrived to her first day of Harvard in or the pink scented paper she submitted her resume to Professor Callahan on?

Phillippe added some edge to her festive top with slouchy light-wash jeans, black pumps, and a cute glittery handbag that we could totally picture Woods’ toting around campus.
