It's a completely brilliant plan!
Like the rest of the world, Reese Witherspoon is feeling some major "Legally Blonde" nostalgia today. Her hit girl power flick, is celebrating its 15th anniversary July 13, 2016, and in honor of the film's milestone birthday, Reese is taking action.
"Make sure and share pictures of you wearing pink, a picture of your pet, your law degree, anything that reminds you of 'Legally Blonde,'" Reese adorably requested on her Instagram on the eve of the movie's anniversary, whilst wearing pink of course.
For fans wanting to get in on the action of the anniversary, Reese suggested that they add the hashtag #legallyblonde15 to share the love. She also added another hashtag that Elle Woods would most definitely approve of -- #thinkpink -- and teased that she might show her 6.5 million Instagram followers how to do the bend and snap in return.
On July 13 Reese made good on that promise -- with the help of Instagram itself! In a video posted to Instagram's official Instagram page, Reese gives official instructions on how to do the iconic Elle Woods maneuver.
"You pretend you're dropping something, and you bend... and then you snap! And that's how it done!" Reese explains, while wearing a perfect pink dress and dropping a pink feather-topped pen.
Along with the bend and snap tutorial, Instagram shared some sweet quotes Reese gave about the film.
"I have had so many women say, 'I went to law school because of 'Legally Blonde,'" Reese Witherspoon told Instagram. "It actually had a meaningful story. And it was about female empowerment. It wasn't necessarily about the girl getting the guy."
The social media platform's page echoed Reese's call to action, sharing, "To celebrate the anniversary, make sure to show off your pet Chihuahua, law degree or even your best 'bend and snap' — 'That is still the most asked request I get from people. I have a feeling I will be doing the bend and snap until I am 95,' says Reese — and tag#LegallyBlonde15 in the caption."
Elle Woods would be so proud!
