SPANX, it's my dream come true!
Bellingham, WA (Vocus) September 19, 2009
The 61st primetime Emmy awards air this Sunday, and everyone knows that award shows are as much about what the stars are wearing as what they're winning. One thing most of this year's female nominees won't be caught without is celebrity slimming secret and red carpet must-have, SPANX.
To support this year's Emmy-nominated actresses as they walk the red carpet, Spanx came to the rescue by sending them an official SPANX Red Carpet Slim-ulus Package that is sure to enhance their assets and help them shimmy into their curve-hugging couture.
The SPANX Red Carpet Slim-ulus Package includes some SPANX shaping favorites and the following new slimmers from the brand's fall lineup:
- Slim Cognito Shape-Suit - This all-in-one seamless bodysuit provides high compression shaping ideal for a slim-fitting sheath. Butt pockets give a perky boost to the backside. ($98)
- Undie-tectable Panties - Comfortable enough to wear every day and slimming enough for the red carpet, this panty has a flat waistband and edges to keep everything invisibly smooth. ($30)
- Sheer Fashion Patterned Sheers - With a comfy control top that slims the tummy, hips and thighs, and eye-catching patterns, these sheer hose are a must-have this season and an unexpected addition to any red carpet look! ($28)
In addition to outfitting the A-listers for the red carpet, SPANX shapers have been the slimming secret on the sets of several of this year's Emmy-nominated shows.
Nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series (30 Rock) Tina Fey loves the SPANX Bra-llelujah and SPANX Higher Power so much that she's been known to wear them home from the set. She also mentioned SPANX on an episode last season! She told the TODAY Show at last year's Emmy's, "SPANX, it's my dream come true!"
30 Rock's Jane Krakowski has been known to tout her love of SPANX on shows like Entertainment Tonight and E! News and specifically requested SPANX for a recent cover shoot!
Nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress, funny lady Amy Poehler loves SPANX! She and her buddy Tina Fey have been quoted on the red carpet saying they base their dress fittings around their SPANX, and when asked by NPR's Fresh Air host how she got back into shape so fast after her baby, she said, "There's a lot of SPANX going on!"
Nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress in Pushing Daisies, Kristen Chenoweth wore SPANX in her new film, You Again, and even revealed her red carpet secret telling Life & Style Weekly, "SPANX are great!"
Nominee for Outstanding Supporting Actress, Ugly Betty star Vanessa Williams told Access Hollywood her secret to looking svelte, "On the red carpet, I've always got my SPANX from under-bust to mid-thigh. On set, I wear them all the time just to keep things pulled up and tight, especially when wearing skintight stuff."
Her gorgeous costar Ana Ortiz will likely be supported by SPANX while walking her first red carpet post baby. She was recently quoted in People saying that upon her return to the set, she asked "Where are the SPANX? Get me the SPANX!"
Be sure to tune into this year's broadcast of the 61st Primetime Emmy's at 8 pm to see which celebrities have their SPANX on!
