The very beautiful Claire Danes set fashion tongues waggling at the 2011 SAG Awards when she belted this floral Louis Vuitton number and many bloggers and critics alike noted that it had 'ruined' the feminine dress by cinching the waist with a leather belt straight out of your dads' wardrobe, i begged to differ. I think it brought some much needed attitude to what otherwise was an unimaginative, unmemorable gown compared to the rest of the A-listers to strut down the carpet, (January Jones, anyone?), but she seems to have started a mini-trend of belting up ball-gowns when three times this week a starlet has been spotted with a band around her waist, an instant way to change a dress from drab to fab.
