While we all admired the fabulous dresses on the red carpet at this week’s 86th Academy Awards, what we didn’t know was how the stars achieved their sleek silhouettes. We found out their secret – SPANX.

Though you may argue the likes of Lupita Nyong’o and Lily Collins might not need the help of the figure hugging undergarments, SPANX is not just a sliming aid – it’s also good for smoothing out lines that could otherwise ruin the final look of your black tie outfit.

Here are some of the stars who opted for the brand at the Oscars 2014.

SPANX is available at K-Lynn stores across the UAE.
