Catherine Zeta-Jones made quite a scene at the 1999 Academy Awards in a red Versace dress with metallic gold horizontal detailing that emphasized her hourglass figure.

The beauty's dark hair contrasted against the rich color of the dress, and she kept her look simple by choosing not to accessorize with statement pieces. Zeta-Jones opted for elegant diamond earrings and a diamond cuff bracelet embedded with a few ruby stones to complement her dress.

"It's an event dress. When I saw it, it was like what I used to dream about wearing," said Zeta-Jones.

She was a star in the film "Zorro," which received two Oscar nominations that year.
