miss usa 2012 prelim leg competition

The 2012 Miss USA preliminary competition kicked off last night in Las Vegas when the 51 gorgeous contestants donned swimsuits and evening gowns.

We're seeing lots of revealing leg slits, a trend made popular by the exaggerated posing by Angelina Jolie during this year's Oscars.

Featured below are Miss Maryland, Miss West Virginia, Miss Idaho, Miss North Carolina, Miss Vermont, Miss Virginia, Miss California, Miss Alabama, Miss Texas and Miss Oregon.

The 61st Miss USA pageant will be broadcast live on NBC Sunday, June 3 at 9:00 p.m. eastern.
