Katherine Heigl Hits AFI Life Achievement Awards In Thigh-High Slit (PHOTOS)

Last time we saw Katherine Heigl, she was toting gift bags and baby gear wearing a rather questionable pair of boots.

So we were stunned to see her all glammed out at Thursday night's AFI Life Achievement Award Tribute to Shirley MacClaine. Presenting to an audience that included Jennifer Aniston, Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep, Heigl upped her style game with the latest trend du jour: the thigh-high slit.

Heigl pulled her best "Angelina" in black Monique Lhuillier, posing on the red carpet with her leg stuck out at the precise thigh-baring angle.

Jennifer Aniston also did her leggy thing in a white, low-cut Burberry gown. But Katherine's dress wins with its side slit (as opposed to Jen's front one) and the cross-ventilation that provides. Fashionable and practical -- what could be better?

See Katherine's red carpet look. Are you a fan or are you getting sick of the high slit trend?
