LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - SEPTEMBER 19: Catherine Zeta-Jones attends the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards ...

Every once in a while, there’s a red carpet fashion theme that’s so good, it becomes a reoccurring trend from then on. Take thigh-high slit dresses, for example, which has become a mainstay style for many stars at award shows. Angelina Jolie famously showed some leg in her Atelier Versace black gown at the 2012 Oscars while Jennifer Lopez is another celeb who loves a good dress parting moment. At the 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards, the high-slit dress trend dominated the red carpet and was more popular than ever with Hollywood’s biggest stars. (It was the perfect sultry detail to jazz up a minimalist gown.)

As celebrities walked into the Microsoft Theater in Downtown Los Angeles, they debuted one daringly high-slit dress design after another. For starters, there was actor Catherine Zeta-Jones (a true style icon) who wore a deep red custom Cristina Ottaviano gown, accompanied by matching Christian Louboutin heels. And of course, it was nearly impossible to miss Kaley Cuoco’s high-slit moment, thanks to her blinding yellow Vera Wang number. The flirty detail allowed celebrities to properly show off their footwear, too, as the dress fabric didn’t hide their strappy heels.
