Catherine Zeta-Jones Has Been the Golden Girl of the Red Carpet For 20 Years

Catherine Zeta-Jones has come a long way. Starting out on stage and screen in the UK, the Welsh starlet made the move to Hollywood 20 years ago after landing a starring role in The Mask of Zorro, and she's never looked back. Catherine quickly became a fixture on the red carpet, making her first appearance at the Oscars the following year. Since then, she's picked up numerous awards (making a dent in that EGOT list with an Oscar and an Emmy), married a fellow movie star, and given birth to two children (Dylan, 17, and Carys, 14).

Though she's never been too far from the public eye, Catherine has taken a few breaks over the years, but after returning last year in Feud: Bette and Joan, she's now back, and she can still rock a glamorous gown like nobody else. Don't believe us? Take a look back at over 40 of her most memorable red carpet looks.
