OSCARS POLL: Who wore your favorite gown? Vote on the best dress of the night! 02 of 06 Cameron Diaz Kevork Djansezian/AP Heavy necking? Not on the red carpet, where many stars opted to skip necklaces and pair their strapless dresses with, well... nothing. A toned Cameron Diaz was on trend, keeping the focus on the ruffled bodice of her blush Dior by John Galliano gown and sculpted shoulders. 03 of 06 Renee Zellweger Lisa O'Connor/Zuma All eyes were on presenter Renee Zellweger as she worked the red carpet in a stunning silver beaded Carolina Herrera gown. The actress complemented her bare collarbone with a deep crimson lip and an air of confidence. 04 of 06 Kelly Preston Jen Lowery/Startraks Kelly Preston packed a colorful punch in her sunny sweetheart gown from Roberto Cavalli. She paired it with drop earrings, a cuff bracelet and a gracefully unadorned neck. 05 of 06 Amy Adams Steve Granitz/WireImage The Enchanted star and presenter channeled Veronica Lake, letting a cascade of auburn finger curls fall over bare shoulders in a Proenza dress. 06 of 06 Kristin Chenoweth Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic The petite blonde made a big impact by framing her bronzed shoulders in nothing but a black strapless Armani Prive gown.
