Halloween, what like it's hard?

Kim Kardashian channeled Elle Woods from 2001's Legally Blonde for Halloween this year and totally nailed it. The mom of four debuted her costume on Instagram on Thursday, nearly breaking the internet in the process. "Legally Blonde," she captioned the post.

To transform into the famous lawyer, Kim rocked a blond wig and a slinky big slip dress. 2000s fanatics will be happy to know that Kim's costume stayed true to the times. She accessorized the look with a silver chain Tiffany & Co. necklace (yes, the one with the heart lock charm), pink tinted glasses and lots of blush. The KKW Beauty founder even found a replica of the bedazzled tote that Elle carried, as well as the pink feathery pen she used in class. She recruited an adorable pup to play the part of Bruiser, Elle's canine sidekick and fellow Gemini vegetarian. 

But this was just for the first part of the costume. Kim also dressed up in the same sparkly triangle bikini that Reese Witherspoon sported to pull off the film's iconic pool scene.

As for her temporary blond 'do à la Elle, you can thank celebrity hairstylist Chris Appleton. According to the pro, prep for the look took about a week. "It takes about a week to create this type of wig to appear very natural," he told E! News exclusively. "I have to get the hairline and color right on point."

Appleton, who's hosting a NYC master class for those who want to learn how to create these spontaneous looks on themselves, further credited Kim with planning the concept. "I love Kim as a blond, so for me it was so fun to do that look on her and see her as a blond again," he said. "We had a lot of laughs."

Oh, wait. There's MORE! Kim recreated Elle's Harvard application video. Going shot-for-shot from the scene in the film, Kim proved that, like the movie's protagonist, she is comfortable using legal jargon in everyday life.

"Hi, I'm Elle Woods," Kim said into the camera lounging in a pool. "And for my admissions essay, I'm gonna tell all of you at Harvard why I'm going to be an amazing lawyer."

We don't object to this incredible costume! Bend and snap your way to the video above to see Kim's transformation!
