Reese Witherspoon has revealed that she kept her entire wardrobe from Legally Blonde.

The actress had it written into her contract for starring in the 2001 comedy classic that she could keep her character Elle Woods' clothes, which included dozens of pairs of designer shoes.

''I kept the whole wardrobe including 77 pairs of Jimmy Choo shoes. I had it written in my contract," Witherspoon told Graham Norton.

"I didn't touch them until the 15th anniversary and then had a lot of fun trying them on with my daughter."

The Oscar-winner said her life changed after starring in the film.

"I was in England making The Importance of Being Earnest when Legally Blonde came out in America. When I went home my life had changed forever," she said.

Speaking about a third instalment in the series, she added, ''It's just a development project right now, so we'll see."
