The rise of the thigh-high slit gowns

Is Deepika Padukone shaping up to be the Angelina Jolie of India? She’s got the action movie down pat, and now it’s “the leg”! Yes, the xXx actress has been seen in quite a few gorgeous gowns, flaunting her long, perfectly toned legs, and we’re not complaining. Of course, the stance was basically made “famous” by Jolie in an iconic black Versace gown at the 2012 Oscars (inspiring countless memes and even Twitter accounts), but “the leg” was more of a point of ridicule, while the Padmavati actress’ appearances have actually gotten her a lot more praise (“Bollywood blunders” don’t count!). But, to be fair, this year has seen the rise of the thigh high slit, as Bollywood actresses go bold, while experimenting with rising hemlines and daring slits.
