Thigh-high slits are popular this season. So popular they frequent the red carpet more than the Kardashians do.

Jennifer Lopez just attended the Glamour Magazine Women of the Year Awards Monday showing off her toned legs. Earlier, model Rosie Huntingdon rocked the same look in a Burberry gown.

The style has been seen on all aged celebrities but evening gowns aren’t the only pieces of clothing with sporting the sexy slit. This season, almost every form of wear from evening gowns to casual skirts is being sold with this style. And that includes wedding dresses.

The thigh-high slits have been seen in many wedding collections this past Bridal Fashion Week 2011.

According to Bridelicious, thigh-high slit styles have been spotted in Reem Acra Fall 2012 collection, Pronovias 2011 Costura Collection, Ines de Santo, Monique Lhuillier, Atelier Aimee  and Elie Saab Couture Spring 2011, among others.

Ok, so you’re not Rosie Huntingdon and you don’t have her Victorias Secret approved model stems, or rock hard, toned one’s like the Bronx-born diva, but showing a little leg may be the perfect way to spice up your big day.

With a wedding date set and a thigh-high slit choice dress picked out, the one thing left to do is join a gym.

Lunges, lunges, lunges.

Here are some tips (according to www.fitnessmagazine.com) for sculpting great stems in time to walk down the aisle and show them off:

  • Diagonal Leg- Lie faceup on floor with knees bent, feet flat, hands on floor by hips. Lift hips off floor and tuck left foot under right thigh, left knee pointing left.
  • Side-lunge Butt Kicker- Stand with feet hip-width apart, arms by sides. Lunge to right with right leg, keeping toes pointed forward and bending right knee 90 degrees. Hinge forward from hips and touch left hand to floor.
  • Thigh Trimmer- Stand with feet shoulder-width apart, arms by sides. Bend knees and hinge forward from hips to touch hands to floor a few inches in front of feet. Lift left foot behind you a few inches off floor and point left knee slightly to left.
