Hollywood's glammest red carpet had plenty of gorgeous ladies and knockout dresses, with two trends — one-shoulder and strapless — having the biggest showing. The standout one-shoulder dress award has to go to Katherine Heigl, who wowed in a red Escada with a circle-shoulder detail. Not to be outdone in that department were Anne Hathaway in her crimson, one-shoulder Marchesa gown, Hilary Swank in sheer black Atelier Versace and Best Supporting Actress nominee Amy Ryan in a navy Calvin Klein.
Stars wanting something sexier went for strapless. Cameron Diaz showed off her surfer girl tan in a pale pink Dior gown while Jennifer Garner went for old-school glamour in a black fishtail Oscar de la Renta. Mom-to-be Jessica Alba wore a rich purple Marchesa gown while new mom Keri Russell glowed in a champagne-colored Nina Ricci. The two stars with the splashiest strapless styles were Penelope Cruz in a custom-made Chanel Haute Couture gown and Renée Zellweger in shimmering Carolina Herrera.
