Ever since Angelina Jolie pulled off the ultimate leg reveal at the 2012 Oscars in a strapless Atelier Versace gown, the high-slit dress has become a red carpet staple. Nearly a decade later, and stars still love to wear the cut. Case in point: on Saturday night, Emily Ratajkowski wore a long black dress with a dramatic hip-high slit to LuisaViaRoma's UNICEF gala in Capri, Italy.
For extra effect, the model posed on the step-and-repeat, and subtly stuck out her toned leg out from the gown's split. The dress also featured an off-the-shoulder silhouette with a plunging ruffled neckline and draping at the bodice. A pair of slingback sandals and diamond earrings were her only accessories.

In the beauty department, Ratajkowski wore her hair down in effortless waves with a part down the middle, and added nude lipstick and a touch of bronzer to emphasize her sun-kissed glow.
The event marked a rare night out for EmRata, who recently welcomed her first child, Sylvester Apollo Bear, four months ago. She's been spending the majority of her time at home (and on the beach) with the newborn, and recently called out critics judging her parenting style.
Last month, the 30-year-old addressed the "awful remarks" that have been made on her photos with her son on Instagram. "We are all reflecting back on shaming Britney [Spears] and calling her a bad mom. We talk about how we have to 'do better' as a culture. Meanwhile my comments are filled with awful remarks about how I don't deserve to be a mom. Shame on you all," she wrote, adding: "I don't care if you hate me or hate celebrity (or just hate women) but it's incredibly scary to become a parent and no one deserves to be told by strangers that they're a shitty mother."
