Kate Middleton Gets In On the Right Leg Action

As someone who sits in nail salons talking back to tabloid "Who Wore It Better?" pages—I never ever agree—it's against my very nature to Photoshop celebrities in similiar outfits next to each other. 

But after seeing Angelina Jolie at the Oscars, Elle Macpherson at the White House Correspondents' Dinner, model Anja Rubik at the Met Ball and Kate Middleton last night, I sort of couldn't help it. This ridiculously high slit thing has legs. I must compare.

I'll leave you to decide Who Wore Their Own Limb Better, but I think Kate's got a pretty compelling argument. Anja may win for shock factor—hey hip bone, you're a new red carpet thing— but with its long sleeves and soft ivory color, Kate's dress makes the high slit less vampy, more casual, more polished.

Kind of like this Phillip Lim dress. Thoughts?
