It is clear that the fashion world has seen an evident rise in the leg split ever since Angelina Jolie bared hers at this year’s Academy Awards. This trend is definitely showing no sign of stopping as Nicole Scherzinger is the next celebrity to work the look. The singer definitely looked alluring in an ornate Cengiz Abazoğlu black evening gown with a side thigh split for the Men in Black 3 premiere in London.

The strapless floor-sweeping dress featured a mesh bodice adorned with bold intricate wire lattice detail. There was also a hint of peplum detailing jutting out under the bodice, which emphasised the feminine silhouette. Furthermore, Team LBD is head over heels for...well Ms. Scherzinger’s heels. The Giuseppe Zanotti peep-toe platforms consisted of a slim ankle strap and were embellished with detailing on the back of the heel down to the stiletto. To get the look:
