Chutney Windham is an Antagonist and girlboss in the film and the daughter of the deceased millionaire Hayworth Windham and his ex-wife Mrs. Windham Vandermark and the stepdaughter of Brooke Taylor-Windham.
In the movie of Legally Blonde she has brown hair and eyes, and a frizzy perm. She is first seen when she is called in to testify in the courtroom. She also gets a sick theme song. In the musical, it is the same thing. But with music.
In her early life, Chutney was canonically a gifted student, particularly in chemistry. She graduated Yale with a business major, and because of such, resents Harvard. Throughout school, her nickname was ‘Slutty Chutty’.
In the court scene, Elle begins shakily cross-examining Chutney, who testifies that she was home during her father's murder, but didn't hear the gunshot because she was in the shower washing her hair after getting her hair permed earlier that day. She then saw Brooke covered in his blood.
Elle gets Chutney to reconfirm her story, then reveals that washing permed hair within the first 24 hours would have deactivated the chemicals used in it, and Chutney's curls are still intact and that Chutney should be well aware of this rule as she had 2 perms per year since she was twelve as she mentioned earlier.
Exposed, Chutney then reveals that she 'accidentally' killed Hayworth because she thought he was Brooke, whom she hated for marrying her father at her age. Brooke is exonerated and Chutney is arrested and goes to jail.
