For celebrities, to step onto a red carpet without a least 1 - sometimes 2 - pairs of stomach-whittling Spanx is a major fashion faux pas. But how refreshing to see actress and mother of 2 Julianne Moore showing off her natural curves sans the squeeze-masters in a clingy Tom Ford dress at last month’s Venice Film Festival.
While Moore may have skipped the Spanx that evening, and we love her for it, we also love that so many stars admit - yes, in PUBLIC – that these spandex task-masters are their secret weapon to looking trim in designer dresses or getting their pre-baby body back (at least for the few hours they are on the red carpet).
Curvy women like Oprah, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian, and even skinny-minnies Gwyneth Paltrow, Isla Fisher, Eva Longoria Parker, and Jessica Alba have all given “thanx to Spanx.”
