Angelina Jolie with her leg sticking out of that slit in her dress may well become as iconic an image as Marilyn with her shmatte flying up.
When she swiveled out on the Oscars with her hand on her hip and her chickeny leg out, it prompted instant homage (The Descendants‘ writers did it with tuxes on), and I immediately started strutting through the apartment in that very pose, the applause crescendoing in the large slit in my mind.
And then the viral reaction that followed was huge and hilarious.

And here’s a genius one on another hot actress, thanks to Pinterest.
