Mindy Kaling just channeled her inner Elle Woods in a flattering two-piece swimsuit.

This week, the 44-year-old actress posted a Legally Blonde-inspired photo on Instagram, featuring herself lounging in a fabulous pool and wearing a daffodil swimsuit by Andie Swim ($114).

Kaling was sporting The High Waisted Bottom ($52) and The Bermuda Top ($62) by Andie Swim. She paired the daffodil bathing suit with a pair of white sunglasses. The picture was inspired by a scene from Legally Blonde, where Elle (Reese Witherspoon) is lounging in the pool while filming her admissions video.

The caption read, “Basically doing fanfic of @reesewitherspoon in her green Elle Woods bikini but in my Daffodil @andieswim. Of all the colors in my Andie swim collab, this color was my absolute favorite. It feels like summer is here even when it’s gray in LA and I swear it looks so good on everyone!”

Fans and followers filled the comments section with supportive messages. Mandy Moore wrote, “Influenced—just ordered!!!” Another person added, “Okay Mindy, this is very Kelly Kapoor of you!” Someone even quoted Legally Blonde: “Hey Mindy, do you know what happened on Days of Our Lives yesterday?”
