After Angelina Jolie’s right leg upstaged the rest of her at the Oscars — we made some vague reference to it here — for some reason I started noticing (or maybe just noticing more) women in the same general stance, not that anyone seeks to emulate La Jolie, or at least, I don’t think anyone does. That said, the combination of deep slits and the laws of physics must necessarily produce photos like this one of NBC News Babe (and MSNBC host) Tamron Hall, who attended the White House Correspondents’ Dinner in something else, and then later turned up wearing this to the network’s post-dinner party. I mean, it’s not like this was deliberate or anything.
Hall at first appeared demure, stopping to pose in a silk green gown.
All of the sudden, Hall whipped out her right leg and said “I’m going to pull an Angelina!” referencing actress Angelina Jolie’s infamous Oscar dress and leg pose from earlier this year.
Advantage: Hall, based on the following criteria: (1) that’s a really nifty dress; (2) she doesn’t seem to suffer from Jolie’s desperate need for a sandwich; (3) she’s five years older and I never would have known had I not looked it up just now.
