Fatih Hill

The country singer performed with hubby Tim McGraw at the 2017 CMAs, but it wasn’t her singing partner people were talking about. It was her long, glistening leg that was sticking out of her red gown. Twitter enjoyed it and #FaithHillleg was born. (Photo: Getty Images)

Chrissy Teigen

The Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model showed more skin than she planned to when she flashed her lady bits in this black number, which boasted slits to her pits, at the 2016 AMAs. Not that the new mom cared. She made a point to thank the place where she gets laser hair removal — as well as her stylist — for the racy look. (Photo: Getty Images)

Taylor Swift

When the singer lent her vocal talents to the 2014 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, she did her best to make sure she fit in with the ladies, many of whom are part of her squad. Not only did she opt for see-through ensembles when she was onstage, but she also showed off almost all of her model-long leg on the pink carpet. (Photo: Getty Images)

Mariah Carey

Well then! The diva songstress made sure all eyes were on her when she performed at the Essence Festival in July. Her sparkly dress had just two dangling strips of fabric, in the front and back, with hip-exposing sides. (Photo: Getty Images)

Angelina Jolie

It’s hard to top this iconic look the newly single mom of six opted for at the 2012 Oscars. “Angie’s Right Leg” even got its own Twitter handle! For her part, Jolie, who showed her upper thigh, said she didn’t know or care that a fuss was made over her kicky look. “I didn’t pay any attention,” she sighed. (Photo: Getty Images)

Kendall Jenner

Two slits are better than one, and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians personality werked ’em both at the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards, which she co-hosted with her sister Kylie. (Photo: Getty Images)

Jennifer Lopez

This perennial Fly Girl knows how to show off her body (tropical-print Versace dress, anyone?) and gave her leg and toned tummy the spotlight at the 2014 MTV VMAs. The smoldering stare was a bonus. (Photo: Getty Images)

Bella Hadid

The model also showed too much — in the form of her undies — when she walked the red carpet in this shiny red dress, with a waist-high opening — in Cannes in 2016. Maybe that’s what helped her get her Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show gig? (Photo: Getty Images)

Eva Longoria

Shorties can show serious leg too! The 5-foot-2 actress channeled her inner supermodel to show off her pins at the 2013 Golden Globes. (Photo: John Shearer/Invision/AP)

Gigi Hadid

Gigi is part of the mile-high (leg) club too! She displayed her famous gams — and a whole lot more! — at the 2015 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. As supermodels are apt to do. (Photo by Kurt Krieger/Corbis via Getty Images)


The singer was on hosting duty for E! at the 2016 AMAs red carpet in November, so she needed an especially eye-catching dress for the occasion. Two leg slits with an off-the-shoulder top was just the ticket. (Photo: Jeff Kravitz/AMA2016/FilmMagic)

Emily Ratajkowski

Yes, the Gone Girl actress is showing leg at the 2016 Met Gala. But this is also a rather conservative look for her. (Photo: Getty Images)

Heidi Klum

The Project Runway guru recently said that on her off days, “I’m in jeans, T-shirts, and sneakers. It’s really about comfort.” But when she’s on the clock, she’s on the clock. She easily turned heads in this beautiful blue gown, which gave more than a peek at her sultry limb, at the 2012 Emmys. (Photo: Scott Kirkland/AP Images)

Selena Gomez

Here’s the fan fave performing — and va-va-vooming — on Saturday Night Live in January 2016. (Photo: Dana Edelson/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images


We’re sure there was many a “Man Down” when the Barbadian songstress glided into the 2014 Grammys wearing this yellow ensemble. Frankly, the most surprising thing about this photo to us is that the tattoo lover doesn’t have any ink on display on that leg. (Photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImage)

Emma Stone

The Met Gala made her do it! The actress turned it up to 11 for the 2016 fashion ball between the sexy upper-thigh slit, dark locks, and smoldering eyes. She gets an Easy A for sex appeal. (Photo: Rabbani and Solimene Photography/Getty Images)

Rita Ora

The British singer wore this red frock at the 2014 MTV VMAs, and it quickly earned the label of her favorite-ever red carpet look. We’re sure she’s not the only admirer. (Photo: Getty Images)

Karlie Kloss

Peekaboo! Considering the model stands at 6-foot-2, she showed off a lot of leg at Cannes in 2015. But she’s a pro, so she was able to keep things PG with just enough coverage. (Photo: AP Photo/Thibault Camus)

Lady Gaga

The singer and actress took it to thigh-tattoo territory at the International Emmys in 2011. Show attendees were treated to a unicorn sighting — and a glimpse of Gaga’s tummy. (Photo: Getty Images)

Krysten Ritter

The willowy Jessica Jones star got her start as a model, so she knows how to work that leg. She seemed to channel her inner Angelina at the 2016 Gotham Awards in November 2016, though in a decidedly less showy way. (Photo: Getty Images)

Kim Kardashian

The petite, 5-foot-3 reality star didn’t mind showing off her leg — and then some — en route to the Met Gala in 2014. (Photo: AKM-GSI)

Kate Middleton

Lastly, believe it or not, this is a daring slit for the duchess! The brunette boldly showed some skin when she attended the premiere for A Street Cat Named Bob, which was an event to support her Action on Addiction organization, in November 2016. No word on what the buttoned-up queen thought of her dress selection, but in our eyes Kate can do no wrong. (Photo: KGC-03/Star Max/IPx)
