Celebrities have a lot to deal with on the red carpet — flashing lights, wardrobe malfunctions, and being asked only about their dresses and romantic lives rather than their career and projects. 

It takes a fashion boss to rock a thigh-high slit with confidence when hoards of paparazzi are ready and waiting for a gust of wind to show your bits. But there's something so strong about a woman standing tall and empowered in a dress with a thigh-high slit; the dresses themselves a feat of architecture and the bodies in them like IRL sculpture. 

Already this year we've seen 30 amazing thigh-high (and body diverse!) dress moments that will go down in fashion history.
