No one can forget when Angelina Jolie鈥檚 right leg (and power pose to go along with it) became the breakout star of the Oscars a few years back 鈥攊t was a deceptively simple fashion coup that spawned a million memes, and the high slit made a comeback at the 2016 Oscars . But what the mother of six started, other celebs can鈥檛 stop (although they swapped sides): It is *the left leg* that is the sexiest body part to show off this summer, as some of our favorite gals have been demonstrating on the red carpet lately.
