What The Celebrities Will Be Wearing To The Oscars

The Oscars are this weekend and I, like millions of others, will be glued to my TV set long before they start. Because, as every woman knows, the red carpet fashion show that precedes the ceremony is just as important as the awards themselves.

And, OK, no, I don’t really know which designer or gown the nominees will be flaunting as they walk the red carpet. But I do know that it’s takes a certain amount of tools, if you will, to make sure everything looks great AND stays in place. Here are a few of the hidden items we expect the stars to be wearing on Oscar Sunday...

If you're wearing a gown that so gorgeously features your back, like Hilary Swank's gown at the 2005 Oscars, a regular bra is absolutely out of the question. Adhesive bras offer support and coverage AND keep your couture look intact.

When wearing a dress that featuers a barely-there lace  neckline, such as Mila Kunis wore in 2011, nipple covers are essential to prevent any nip slips on the red carpet.

Gwyneth Paltrow should have worn a pair of these breast lift adhesives instead of going au naturel at the 2002 Oscars. Fashion critics deemed her outfit a failure, largely in part because of her saggy look up top.

A few other things likely to be worn this Sunday: fashion tape, peel and stick pushup cups and maybe even a few curve-creating Magical Panties for the actresses that need some help filling out their dresses.

And there you have it, just a few of the body enhancers you might see in a celebrity's arsenal of styling products and tools. Consider adding them to your "toolbox" next time you wear an outfit that doesn't allow for traditional undergarments (and check out this post, too).
