Playing Jennifer Aniston's Oscars Dress Was Once Sported By Jennifer Lopez, Plus Many More Thigh-High Slits From the 'Vanity Fair' After-Party

Jennifer Aniston vs. Angelina Jolie vs... Jennifer Lopez?

Aniston's appearance at Sunday's Oscars gave people major flashbacks to Jolie's now infamous dress from the 2012 Academy Awards, and it's easy to see why: both women rocked sexy, notice-me LBDs from Versace and each totally slayed the leg slit game. (And, you know, there's the whole Brad Pitt thing that constantly gets these two compared to one another.)

The thing is, the two gowns didn't really look that much alike. In fact, if you truly must compare the Friends alum to another famous face, make it J. Lo. See, the "Ain't Your Mama" singer actually has worn the exact same dress before.

Lopez donned a slightly lower-cut version of the glitzy gown for a surprise appearance during ex-husband Marc Anthony's concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City last August.

The Jolie effect clearly has a lot of, well, leg to it. Five years after her iconic red carpet turn, the thigh-high slit was the biggest trend at Sunday's Vanity Fair Oscar party.

Along with Aniston, more than a dozen starlets rocked the look in widely varied versions. Among those lovely ladies was Janelle Monae, who looked fierce one of our favorite looks of the night, a pretty punk confection that featured a long-sleeved mesh bodice, voluptuous skirt and oversized studded belt.
