Widely considered as the warm up to the Oscars race, the 71st incarnation of the Golden Globes Awards were held this week, celebrating all that was good from the worlds of film and television over the last year. With film Twelve Years a Slave and TV phenomenon Breaking Bad among the biggest winners on the night, the red carpet was filled with a sea of talent.
But all the People TV red carpet correspondent seemed to want to know was… what were the celebs wearing under their gorgeous gowns? The answer, of course, was unanimous: Spanx!
First to be accosted was Modern Family starlet Sarah Hyland, who said: “everybody needs to wear Spanx no matter what… it just takes care of good lines for underwear issues”. Now we know how how she manages to look so amazing all the time! Next up was Melissa Rauch and Kunal Nayyar (Bernadette and Raj from the Big Bang theory), who both replied with a firm “Yes” when asked if they were wearing a shaping secret (another not-so-secret admirer of the Spanx for Men range, then).
Swiftly following in their footsteps was their BBT cast mate Mayim Bialik, looking very un-Amy-Farrah-Fowler-like in a sheer panelled black gown. Her reply? “Of course… do you even have to ask?!” And Tatiana Maslany was hot on her heels and in agreement, saying: “are you not wearing Spanx is the more apt question”. The actress, who wore an extravagant beaded shift dress, was nominated for role in Orphan Black but lost out on the night to House of Cards actress Robin Wright.
The list of famous faces signed up to the world of Spanx shapewear seems to be endless! With Spanx celebs the world over in their devotion, it can only be a matter of time before they’re taking centre stage on the front cover of Vogue…
