Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt may not have brought home any Oscar golden statuette on Sunday.
But Jolie made quite an impact at the Oscars with her already famous leg pose, both at the red carpet arrival and at the time of the award presentation.
Media and social networking sites went abuzz with the pictures and discussions about Jolie’s leg show. It even became a trending topic on twitter with an account dedicated to Angelina Jolie’s right leg after the pictures of her leg show were out.
Jolie wore a black Atelier Versace gown having a thigh high slit accompanied with minimal jewellery.
Her dramatic pose on the red carpet and later at the time of the award presentation was even imitated by Jim Rash, co writer of The Descendants, while accepting the award for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Take a look at Jolie’s obsession with the pose and slit dress in many of her previous red carpet appearances:
