Stars Who Wear Spanx on the Red Carpet

Walking the red carpet at a star-studded Hollywood event might appear to be all glitz and glamor but a few celebs have copped to the fact that it occasionally takes some tricks of the trade to look that good.

Octavia Spencer

Octavia Spencer, Best Supporting Actress nominee for "The Help," recently fessed up on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", telling the host that she wore three pairs of Spanx with her Golden Globes dress.

She's clearly a fan of the slimming undergarments but admits they're not the most comfortable item of clothing. “I could not party [one] night because I was being pinched in places that I didn’t know it was possible. I ran into Melissa McCarthy...and I said, ‘Oh my god Melissa, I’m about to die. My Spanx are killing me.’ She said, ‘I just went to the bathroom and took mine off,” she added.

Berenice Bejo

"The Artist" star Berenice Bejo, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress, may be opting for sex appeal over Spanx for the big ceremony on Sunday. "You mean Spank or no Spank?" Bejo asked when the Associated Press presented her with the underwear inquiry. "I don't think so, because of the dress I'll have, I don't think I'll wear too much."

Carrie Underwood

Carrie Underwood shows off her figure in a Gomez-Gracia lace gown at the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards on February 12, 2012.

When asked by People Stylewatch what her red carpet secrets were, she said, "a stylist and Spanx!"

Miley Cyrus

She might be only 19-years-old but even Miley Cyrus has hopped into a pair of the popular shapewear, declaring to StyleBistro, "Spanx are a gift from God!"

Jessica Alba

When faced with being immortalized on film in a skin-tight jump suit, Jessica Alba enlisted some additional support - "I wore Spanx under my Fantastic Four costume. I love them! Spanx are the only thing that smooth out all of my lumps and bumps."

Katherine Heigl

Katherine Heigl admitted to wearing Spanx underneath her stunning one-shoulder red Escada gown at the 80th Annual Academy Awards back in 2008. She also told Oprah that she wore SPANX under her wedding dress.

Gwyneth Paltrow

Not that she needs the help but even Gwyneth Paltrow wears Spanx under her designer dresses, telling StyleBistro "There are these great things called Spanx, and they just squeeze you in. It's terrific! That's how all the Hollywood girls do it!"

Emily Blunt

Emily Blunt had no qualms about revealing her undergarment secrets on the red carpet at the 2007 Golden Globe Awards - “I’m wearing a full body SPANX – I love it!”

Oprah Winfrey

Being named one of Oprah's Favorite Things was a huge boost for Spanx's popularity. The media mogul even goes so far as to say, "I love Spanx. I've given up panties. I wear Spanx every single day!"

Sanaa Lathan

Sanaa Lathan raves about the slimming shapewear - “I won’t be caught on the red carpet without my bodyshaper Spanx. They are great because they suck you in. Even if you don’t need them, they just make you feel secure. No jiggling!”
