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

Angelina has the nastiest looking knee!!

Lisa on

Whomever Carrie Underwood’s stylist is- she is amazing. Carrie’s clothing never misses!!! She always looks great. Great choice!!!

Mary Smith on

3 women with bad legs!

heather on

posh looks like she’s wearing a bathrobe. and i would hardly call this a trend. people have been wearing high slits for a while.

Megan on

Mary Smith…you suck! I guess you think your legs look better than all of theirs!

GUY101 on

Carrie Underwood looks amazing. Mary Smith, you are confused on what a good leg looks like obviously. Angelina’s does look too thin, but posh and Carrie’s look amazing. Don’t be jealous.

Lisa on

Ohhhh ladies.. why so much hate? I think they all 3 look fabulous :) Too bad women are so jealous of them that they have to put them down!

Go on girls you are HOT :)

Diane on

I can’t stand Vicky Beckam. She has the same pose, every single time. I wouldn’t mind having the quad muscles that Carrie Underwood seems to have. I have no muscles, at least not obvious ones in either leg.

Donna on

All the people hating on these 3 women are doing it because they’ll never and I mean NEVER look as good as they do…. I believe K and Mary Smith are those couch potatoes that have absolutely no life.

Leigh Ann on

all three are amazing and thin! but i am over Posh and her “pose” very over done in my opinion! i love carrie underwood and her stylist or whomever has helped her select this dress is awesome!! i think Angelina could use a little meat on those bones!! almost too thin to be attractive.

JR Jake on

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.

annie on

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!!!:)

Kathleen on

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.

Kelly on

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.

Susan Lewis on

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

Denise on

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!

Delia on

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!

Kim on

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.

TM on

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

Robyn on

They all three look fabulous! The only thing I’d recommend changing is Angie’s hair. I think if it were all up, her look would be more polished.

Jon on

I like The PHOTOS of Carrie Underwood and Victoria Beckham, no comment on Angelina Jolie, though! My take on Hollywood’s Latest hem-raising trend is ok, I don’t mind it at all!

chief7777777 on

If only Doctors could surgicly fix legs Angelina would look great. What Brad sees in her is beyond me. She and Billy Bob deserve each other.

Jon on

I wish The Jonas Brothers’ Manager, Johnny Wright, the best in searching for The Next Pop Star, I hope he can find what he’s looking for? I’m glad Oprah Winfrey finally said she’s not gay, but I doubt the rumors will stop? As far as Brittny Gastineau not dating Michael Phelps or expecting, it’s all good, glad that was settled, but it’s nice that she wants to Be Pregnant at the same time as her BFF, Kim Kardashian! It’s understanable why The Bank Robber Mom just wanted to pay her Rent, but it doesn’t excuse what she did, and I’m glad she got 39 Months in Jail, etc.

Nikki on

Here is a little tip about women. We are the harshest critic of other women.

Lori on

Love Angelina’s and Carrie’s dresses, not sure about Posh’s. All three ladies look fab, though.

MM on

Diane: Did you seriously just type “Vicky” Beckham? lol..for someone you apparently hate so much, you seem to be on quite the buddy-buddy name basis with her. Oh, and nobody cares about YOUR legs.

As for the gorgeous celebrities above, I think they all look amazing in those dresses!

ellen on

Carrie is such a beautiful girl the others don’t hold a candle to her. Their fake looking to posed and unnatural. She’s young and beautiful and who cares what their kness look like I mean WTF the dress is what were looking at.

Kem on

Posh and Carrie can pull that one of great, Angelina, well she looks nice, but her leg looks too odd i guess is the word im looking for maybe the thigh high slit just isnt for her.

Stephanie on

Love Angie’s dress, hair, and pose. The others look stunning as well. I agree – these three women are glamorous, gorgeous, and deserving of respect.

Mel on

I totally agree with what Chelsea Handler says about Angelina, Carrie Underwood is played far too much on the radio and it would be nice if she’d be true to her small town roots like Miranda Lambert and tone down the glitter once in a while, and Victoria, well, a smile wouldn’t kill you, would it?

Joanne on

I like the thigh high slit. It looks good on every celebrity who wears one. Angie shouldn’t show off her legs, they’re not her best feature. Carrie and Victoria’s legs seem to pull off this look much better, although Carrie’s leg is posed awkwardly.

colleen on

Carrie Looks the Best! She looks very healthy looking and natural and just beautiful..i dont really think Angie is all that grt anymore although she tries to be all that.

Christina on

All three of these women are WAYY to skinny. They all need to put on some pounds. They are sending out a bad message to young girls and it seems like they will do anything for male attention. YUCK YUCK YUCK. Gain weight girls. It’s alright to have curves and be a REAL women…like MIRANDA LAMBERT. That’s what I call beauty. NATURAL.

I think Carrie is beautiful, both inside and out. Carrie is just a tiny young lady as it is. I am 5’4″ and when she stood next to me she was a good 2 inches shorter than me and she had heels on. Christina she isn’t doing anything for anyone’s attention but her husbands and she got it. You are way off. I think the reason why her leg looks like it is at an odd angle is because she is a bit bow-legged.

Erin on

Carrie Underwood is so pretty. Sometimes she wears some pretty weird stuff, but this looks absolutely beautiful on her. I also love her hair this way. I don’t think I have ever seen her in red—just looks wonderful on her.
