I will never forget the Gemini vegetarian who taught me you can be a badass all while looking good. This girly force is none other than Elle Woods, portrayed by Reese Witherspoon in Legally Blonde. So, when I saw Witherspoon jump back into character this past week, I nearly fell out of my fluffy, pink seat.

Witherspoon posted an Instagram video wearing a vibrant tweed set and soft pink Christian Louboutin slingback pumps, similar to versions worn by Katie Holmes and Julia Roberts. The 2024 ‘It’ shoes featured a pointed toe, scalloped strap, and tapered heel; in other words, these aren’t your last season Prada shoes. Still, they’ll cost you a pretty penny ($895 to be exact), so I rounded up eight Elle Woods-inspired lookalikes that will have you walking around in style.

8 Witherspoon-inspired Pink Slingback Heels

Vivaia Pointed-Toe Slingback Heel

The Vivaia slingback pump is too good to pass up. The shoe features a stretchy knit upper, cloud-like sole, and breathable design that wicks away moisture. A grippy bottom, under 3-inch heel, and adjustable buckle let you walk with confidence, while pairing perfectly with summer dresses, maxi skirts, and wide-leg denim. Similar to the bend and snap, these Vivaia slingback heels work every time.

Pelle Moda Kelsa Scalloped Slingback Heel

For a scalloped design, consider this Pelle Moda heel. Not only is it better than four amazing hours in the hot tub after winter formal (wink, wink), but it boasts buttery suede, a short heel, and an almond toe. While there’s no adjuster on this shoe, an elastic strap ensures it comfortably fits over your heel.

Lifestride Santorini Strappy Pump



While the Lifestride Santorini Pump is a deeper shade of pink, it captures the magic of Elle Woods just the same. For $51, you can look forward to a unique crossover strap, cushioned footbed, and flexible material. I own a few pairs of Lifestride shoes, and can attest to their serious comfort—what more could a heel-loving girl want?

Jessica Simpson Souli Patent Pump



I’m calling on another female powerhouse for the Jessica Simpson pump. It gives you extra height, includes sexy patent leather, and adds instant elegance to any ensemble. The only downside? Bruiser Woods isn’t included, but at least the shoe is on sale.

“Whoever said orange is the new pink was seriously disturbed,” said icon Elle Woods, so stick to her foolproof color of choice and shop more pink slingbacks, below.
