It seems as if "Angelina Jolie Leg" isn't going away anytime soon!

Celebrities at Cannes 2013 have been heating up the red carpet in sexy dresses with thigh-high slits including New York socialite Olivia Palermo, who hit up the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS 2013 charity event on Thursday wearing a leopard-print Roberto Cavalli with a searing hot thigh-high slit.

Olivia isn't the only one who has been showing off her toned gams; Sharon Stone proved that she still has her hot "Basic Instinct" body in another Roberto Cavalli creation, which featured sideboob and a slit that almost went up to her nether regions. (Although we were a bit concerned that her risqué dress would cause her to take a tumble over Cavalli's yacht.)

Unfortunately, thigh-high slits are very likely to give the wearer a wardrobe malfunction. "Sin City" star Rosario Dawson felt the wrath of her Cannes 2013 gown on May 21, when a gust of wind made her sequined white gown fly up, revealing her underwear to photographers.

Despite the inherent dangers, many actresses opt to wear the leg-baring gowns, including Jolie at the 2012 Oscars and "Transformers" star Megan Fox, who lit up the Internet in 2009 when she wore a deep red one-shoulder gown without a bra and a slit up to here.

Even Disney cutie Selena Gomez wore the hot trend at the Billboard Awards on May 19. (Perhaps to make on-off boyfriend Justin Bieber jealous?)

What do you think of the thigh-high slit trend?
