Spanx's Slim Cognito Body Suit

Sure, stars have access to some of the best trainers and private chefs to keep them looking amazing. But it seems that the slimming abilities of Spanx are still the go-to plan to appear trim and fit on the red carpet.

This year the Spanx team sent each of the female Emmy nominees (including Tina Fey, Christina Applegate and Jennifer Aniston) its special "Red Carpet Slim-ulus" package, including the "Slim Cognito," an all-in-one body suit that perks up the backside, "Undie-tectable Panties" to hide those VPL's and the "Sheer Fashion Patterned Sheers," a tummy, hip and thigh-smoother.

So, which celebrities actually rocked the Spanx freebies under their gowns? We'll never know for sure. Which is the point.

But behind-the-scenes of their Emmy-nominated shows, it seems that the aforementioned Applegate and Fey, along with Marcia Gay Harden, Kristen Chenoweth, Jane Krakowski, Vanessa Williams and Amy Poehler have all requested the body shapers. So, we're guessing they donned them for the red carpet, too.
