The Latest Body Part to Obsess Over: The Thigh


Be it their left or their right, stars walked the Grammy’s red carpet last night with their best thigh forward. It seems that ever since Angelina Jolie set off the leggy movement at last year’s Oscars, the thigh has been living out its 15 minutes of fame. Stars may have followed the CBS “wardrobe advisory” asking them to keep their “female breast nipples” and “curves of the buttocks and buttock crack” covered up, but an army of gam-bearing slits marched in to spice up what was otherwise one of the Grammy Awards’ tamest fashion years. While some slits looked like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen (J. Lo), other thigh appearances—like Florence Welch’s—were the perfect accompaniment to chart-topping gowns.
