Angelina Jolie Covers Up At Women In The World Summit After Leggy Oscars Pose (PHOTOS)

Angelina Jolie covered up the leg, which became an internet sensation after her Oscars night red carpet posing, as she arrived at the Women in the World Summit in New York yesterday.

Jolie's slender right leg, which became the breakout star of this year's Academy Awards, seemed to have a life of its own as it poked out from her heavy, dark Versace dress. And soon enough, it did.

The limb had its own Twitter account, @AngiesRightLeg, with thousands of followers by the time Jolie had finished extending her leg on the red carpet and as she presented awards.

Avoiding any more red carpet ridicule, yesterday she opted for a slim-fitting pair of tailored trousers and a chic blazer, seen in the photos below.

Speaking on the red carpet at the Summit to highlight issues that affect women around the globe, Jolie told The Telegraph: "I think what are we in this world if we can't give back to others - it's a happier life.

"I had a wonderful mother I learned a lot about women through her, I have great daughters who teach me a lot about the strength of women and little girls. And I've met amazing people around the world who have inspired me and taught me to be better."
