Jennifer Lopez Pulls an Angelina Jolie at the Grammys: Who Did It Better?

J.Lo bares her thigh a la the Oscar winner at the Grammys. Whose look had more impact?

Jennifer Lopez might have adhered to the this year's Grammy Awards fashion memo issued by CBS by not showing her genitals or "puffy" bits, but that doesn't mean she didn't pull out a PG-13 rated outfit. No, our beloved J.Lo Angelina Jolie-ed her way all down the Grammys red carpet, baring a whole lot of leg but leaving her top covered.

"They didn't say anything about leg!" she told Ryan Seacrest about her black Anthony Vaccarello gown. "I thought I was being such a good girl! A little shoulder, a little leg."

It's not quite as risque as her infamous 2000 Grammys dress that likely started CBS' crusade against boobs, buttocks and genitalia to begin with. But who Jolie'd it best? Should we start saying people J.Lo'd it now? We decided to pit these two gorgeous women against one another and decide who showed that extra leg best.


Fashion or statement: Definitely fashion, but the Oscar winnner made sure that leg made a statement. A high slit in a long gown is nothing new, but Jolie sticking her leg out of the black Atelier Versace gown at the 2012 Oscars made it meme-worthy.
Sexiness factor: Her this look would have been way sexier if she didn't seem like she was gong to break in half with every step.
Overall impact: Considering the influence Jolie's gown has had on the way we look at leg slits in dresses, she's going to get to keep this one for a bit longer.


Fashion or statement: Statement, statement, statement. She didn't bare her chest, but Lopez sure rocked her thigh. Not that there's anything wrong with it: If we had Lopez's leg, we'd want to be a bit rebellious too.
Sexiness factor: We're going to have to give Lopez the sexiness award over Jolie.
Overall impact: Lopez made her feelings about the Grammys dress code be known with this look, but she's still going to be known best for her plunging 2000 green Versace gown -- and for good reason.
