8 Celebs Who Swear by Spanx

by Tracey Lomrantz Lester, Glamour

Katy Perry recently sang the praises of Spanx, reminding me that a.) Celebs really are just like us! and b.) the brand has more than a few famous fans. Wondering who else keeps svelte courtesy of the must-have shapewear?

1. Octavia Spencer She famously told Ellen DeGeneres she was "triple Spanx-ing" at the SAG Awards in 2011. "Ohhh, Ellen. Let me tell you, I could not party that night, because I was being pinched in places I didn't know it was possible," she said.

2. Adele
The singer will see Octavia's triple-threat and raise her one: At the Grammy Awards in June, she told the New York Post, "I had three or four pairs of Spanx on that night but I loved it."

3. Kelly Osbourne "Even if you're a skinny girl, Spanx are a must," she said to the Daily News. "Nobody wants to see your belly button through your dress."

4. Kim Kardashian The famously curvy reality star called Spanx "the greatest invention" on a UK talk show last summer.

5. Tyra Banks "You put 'em on, it sucks you up, baby," the supermodel says. "No matter what red carpet, I got 'em on. I look like a granny before I put the dress on, but I put on the dress, and it's like, 'palow!'"

6. Carrie Underwood When People StyleWatch asked her to fill in this blank--"the key to my red carpet style is..."--she answered, "A stylist and Spanx!"

7. Jessica Alba "I wore Spanx under my Fantastic Four costume," she 'fessed up a while back. "I love them!"

8. Gwyneth Paltrow Yes, even the queen of clean living relies on shapewear to amp up her already-fabulous bod. After the birth of daughter Apple, she said she wore two pairs at a time: "They just squeeze you in. It's terrific! That's how all the Hollywood girls do it!"
