Though Angelina Jolie 's right leg was the major talking point after the 84th Academy Awards on Sunday (February 26, 2012), few have stopped to notice the similarities between her notorious thigh-slit dress, and a gown that her partner's ex-wife Jennifer Aniston wore to the Golden Globes in 2010.
Though French silent movie 'The Artist' dominated this year's Oscars, it was Jolie who stole the headlines after donning a risque black Versace gown and striking a strange pose while presenting the award for Best Adapted Screenplay. Her wandering leg has been mocked online, with some internet pranksters sparking the latest meme craze: legbombing. Angelina's limb has found itself photoshopped onto famous landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, as well as attached onto Star Wars' Darth Vader. However, the ensemble and subsequent posing has begged the question - was Angelina trying to outdo Jennifer once again? The UK's Daily Mail have highlighted key similarities between Jolie's Versace gown and a thigh-split dress that the former 'Friends' actress wore to the Globes two years ago. Though Jennifer caused a stir with her revealing dress, she "breezed into the ceremony in girl-next-door style", rather than posing in diva fashion like Angelina.
The two women have been intensely compared to each other following Aniston's split from Brad Pitt seven years ago - with speculation suggesting Jolie and the actor became an item while filming Mr and Mrs Smith, while he and Aniston were still together. In October 2008, Angelina told the New York Times that her children loved the family-action movie, because, "Not a lot of people get to see a movie where their parents fell in love".
