We’re often led to believe that celebrities are flawless creatures who wake up in the morning with impeccable style and enviable looks. Well, here’s a shocker — celebs are just like the rest of us (okay, minus the fame, perks, private jets, bodyguards etc.) and it does take a team to get these stars red-carpet ready.
One of the best secrets in showbiz for creating that enviable toned, svelte star body is … shapewear.
As a stylist to many celebrities, Ceril Campbell created Red Carpet Undies, an e-commerce site devoted to lingerie and bodyshapers, not only for her celebrity clientele but for ‘real’ women and men too. No matter your size or shape, Campbell confidently asserts that the shapewear labels she features will enable you to drop a dress size, smooth your tummy, lift your bottom, slim your hips and define your waist — just like your favorite celebrities do just before the paparazzi close in on them.
Red Carpet Undies offers shapewear staples like slips, bodysuits, waist-cinchers and padded briefs (to add a little J. Lo oomph to your backside), but I am particularly interested in the non-shapewear shapewear — pieces that look sexy all on their own.
For bigger-busted girls, Panache’s Confetti thong bodysuit (right) is available in sizes 30D-38H! Designed with floral ivory lace and sheer paneling, the back features a sexy cut-out that is sure to entice your viewer. Also available in ivory is the Charnos Superfit full-cup bodyshaper (bottom photos), which not only provides smooth curves under clothing, but doubles as sexy lingerie on its own.
RCU also features the retro-inspired collection by label What Katie Did (top photo). The corselettes and waspies provide ample coverage and support with flattering panels for undeniable sex appeal.
Not only does Red Carpet Undies feature shapewear, they also carry a wide selection of lingerie from one of my fave labels, Beautiful Bottoms, as well as maternity, bridal and mastectomy lingerie, nightwear and accessories to make you look and feel as good as the celebs on the red carpet.
