It’s the awards season and a time of delight for all the fashion fads out there. Seeing the beautiful stars in all their couture glory brings a mix of happiness with a tinge of sadness, because each girl wishes they could have their princess day, in haute designer glory.

Well, those dresses may not reach our closets soon but the style ethos is always around to mimic. And here is one re-visited style fact – belts are powerful. Often we rush out, throwing on some stylish wear, and not really seeing the need of a belt in our attire. But let this post be a reminder of what it can do to change your look!

As it’s the awards season, all inspiration comes from the red carpet -

  • Sandra Bullock is one heck of an actress but she has not always been known for nailing it in the style front. Though, the past couple of weeks are quickly changing our minds.  She’s up at the style spotlight and for good reasons. At the 2014 Critics Choice Awards held in Santa Monica on January 16, she wowed in a tiered ruffled raspberry gown. But, the dress only looked as perfect as it did because of the studded black leather belt, adding edge and making the look go from voom to va-voom! And also, highlighted her curves.
  • Also at the Critics Choice Awards, the queen of effortless elegance, Cate Blanchett posed in all her Blanchett glory wearing a long, oversized bottle green Lanvin dress. A wide leather belt with crystal detailing kept her from drowning in the dress and helped maintain her status of “red carpet stunner.”
  • Who was the best dressed at the 2014 Golden Globes Awards? Amy Adams tops the list for sure. There’s no escaping the brilliant blue Antonio Berardi dress she wore with a retro-do and silver Jimmy Choo’s. And there’s also no denying the fact that the dress got its glamour punch from the embellished crystal belt.
  • Belts don’t just take the ‘gown looks’ up a notch, even low-key attires are given a whole new meaning with a neat belt.  Take a look at Keira Knightley’s ‘Laggies’ Sundance Film Festival premiere look for an instance. She wore a gray lace skirt with an oversized three-quarter sleeved dress and didn’t look any less fabulous than she always does – a bow-accented belt and lace-up booties added all the edge and fiesta fashionista touch needed.
