The red carpet has range. From movie premieres to full-fledged galas, you see virtually every style, accessory and hair trend make an appearance. But once awards season gets rolling, things can get a bit more predictable: Heavy on the floor length gowns, blinding bling is the norm and we're given two or three daring looks that go down in red carpet hall of fame (see: Bjork's swan getup and Gwyneth's pink Ralph Lauren dress.) But in the midst of the all the haute couture and Louboutins, a dark horse of accessories has emerged as the latest trend: belts. No fancy capelets, daring thigh-high slits or weird hemlines, but an accessory everyone has in their closet.
Not surprisingly, celebs are using belts for their intended purpose by holding up baggy trousers or turning a tunic into a bonafide dress. Instead, they're using the everyday accessory to amp up hourglass figures and add some edge to red carpet gowns. Click ahead to see how starlets are accessorizing their ensembles this awards season.
