Victoria's Secret model Anja Rubik left little to the imagination Monday night on the 2012 Met Gala red carpet in a leg-baring gown that channeled Angelina Jolie's Oscars style.
Anja Rubik wore a skimpy Anthony Vaccarello Spring 2012 hip-high slit and chest-slashed white gown. Since the slit in the dress went practically up to her stomach, Rubik's red carpet poses revealed her hipbone and her entire right leg. The model also opted out of any underwear, so double-sided tape was surely an accessory of the night.
Many immediately compared the blonde model to Angelina Jolie, who revealed a whole lot of leg at the 2012 Oscars in an Atelier Versace gown.
Wow, @anjarubikblog sure did give Angelina Jolie a run for her money at #MetGala tweeted FabSugar.
Move Over, Angelina Jolie's Right Leg-Anja Rubik's Gam Was the Belle of the Met Ball! tweeted E! Online.
Is Anja Rubik's right hip the new Angelina Jolie's right leg? Who's starting a Twitter account? asked Fashionista.
TMZ called her the Nearly X-Rate Jolie.
As for Angelina Jolie's leg, the appendage is not taking the competition lying down. Angelina's Right Leg's Twitter account posted a shout out to Anja Rubik: Aw, hellllll no. Anja Rubick be frontin'. Her hip could slice deli meat (which she should then use to eat a sandwich).
The Hollywood Reporter noted that the dress could have been strategically designed to channel Angelina Jolie.

So was this right leg reveal planned to boost Anja's profile and the designers'? We hear that Vaccarello showed a lot of gowns with left leg slits on his Spring runway. But this one is on the right. You do the math, wrote THR reporter Elizabeth Sneed.
Anja Rubik was not the only one who was caught doing the Angelina Jolie right-leg move. Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen also made her right leg seen on Monday night.
The 31-year-old Brazilian supermodel pulled an Angelina Jolie in her sparkling black Givenchy gown with a thigh-high slit, decked out in David Yurman jewelry. Bundchen made sure that, when posing for the photographers, her right leg was in full view.
Anja Rubik is a Victoria's Secret model and she was selected by Vogue Paris as one of the decade's top 30 models. She is NO. 18 on the Top 25 Money Girls list, which ranks the highest models in the industry. She has modeled for Valentino, Chanel and Elie Saab. She has a contract with Fendi, posed for the 2011 Pirelli Calendar and is friends with fellow Eastern European model Karolina Kurkova.
The model accompanied jewelry designer Eddie Borgo down the red carpet Monday night. She tweeted her love for Anthony Vaccarello on Tuesday.
