Legally Blonde

Valley girl Elle Woods, a fashion merchandising student and president of the UCLA chapter of (fictional) Delta Nu sorority applies for and, against all odds, wins admission to Harvard Law School in the hope she can convince narcissistic ex-boyfriend Warner Huntington III, who dumped her for “serious” Vivienne Kensington, that theirs was a relationship worth salvaging.

As she pursues her quest clad in her traditional pink ensembles and with her chihuahua, Bruiser, in town, she astonishes the student body and the faculty with her unabashed audacity and naiveté but wins their respect and admiration – and the love of fellow law student Emmett Forrest – when she tries and wins a murder case (thanks to knowing well the principles and recommended care of a permanent wave), proving to one and all that being true to yourself never goes out of style and may even help you win the day.
