Thighs the Limit

It seems that thigh’s the limit these days! In a span of 24 hours, at three very different fêtes, Carrie Underwood, Angelina Jolie and Victoria Beckham dared to bare in the same revealing silhouette. Playing by the rules in Sin City, the country singer flashed her sinewy gams in a scarlet red beaded Edition by Georges Chakra gown, Coomi earrings and a metallic clutch and heels by Rene Caovilla at Monday’s American Country Awards. That same night in N.Y.C., Angelina flashed some leg in a winter white Atelier Versace wrap dress that highlighted her limbs and ample décolletage. The following evening, across the pond, Designer Brand of the Year nominee, Beckham, left little to the imagination in a slitted kimono gown of her design at the British Fashion Awards. We say, if you’ve got it flaunt it, but we want to know what you think! Tell us: What’s your take on Hollywood’s latest hem-raising trend? Justine Harman

Carrie hands down, didn’t have to think about it longer than a millisecond. Not a big fan of red, but Carrie could wear burlap covered in moss and I would still say she is the purdiest thing this side of Canada.

I love Carrie and Angie’s dresses. They are both stunning!!! And yes, I am a little jealous of their legs, so I won’t say they look bad. I wish mine looked more like that!!!
Great looks!!! Carrie was very glam and Angie, she looks so comfy in that dress!!!:)

I’m not a fan of Posh or Angelina but they all look good. I think Carrie looks the best and there is no comparison between her, Posh and Angelina. I also don’t think the thigh high slit is a new thing, it’s pretty common and has been for the last 20 years or so.

They look great. I would love for this “trend” to replace the bangade dress that has been so popular for the last year. Elegance needs to be revived.

Ummm, Mrs. Fisher, that leg is looking a bit birdlike. Have a cheeseburger, OK?

I think they are all fabulous women, although I don’t care much for Carrie Underwood’s music. But they are all very pretty! And Angelina has the most beautiful face out of the three in my opinion. Having said that, Jolie needs to eat a little bit more. Her face would look even prettier if it was a little fuller. She looks like she haven’t eaten in months!
Posh is really tiny so I don’t think she would look better if she put on weight. And Carrie looks fine to me. Gorgeous dresses too!

Three simply beautiful woman-inside and out

Myopinion on

Carrie and Angelina are both gorgeous, talented, accomplished women, something beckham is NOT and never will be. She’s only “famous” due to her marriage and before anyone starts yapping about her being in the Spice Girls- she was the least talented, least mentioned, least known one in that group- FACT! Ppl. only started to notice her when she became involved with beckham and they only got so much press due to Princess Diana’s death and the British tabs needed someone else to focus on and they unfortunately chose the beckhams. Beckham is a waste of space and wishes she was as accomplished as Underwood or Jolie, never mind as gorgeous!

Whoa, Angelina looks WAY hot in this picture. (Not that she ever looks bad!) They all three look gorgeous actually. Only thing that looks odd is Carrie’s leg..which she seems to be holding at a very odd angle.

Victoria Beckham looks gorgeous as always. She always dresses impeccably and has the perfect figure.
