Tyra Banks and Andre Leon Talley Talk Shapewear in Latest
'Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion'

In the latest episode of Fa-Fa-Fa Fashion, Tyra Banks and Andre Leon Talley tackle another thing most women should know about, but surprisingly few do: shapewear. Spanx, girdles, corsets—call it what you want—everyone needs to know about it.

Tyra and ALT talk about the history of shapewear, from its Egyptian origins to its current incarnations. Tyra is clearly obsessed with the stuff, you name it, she's got it. She's a huge fan, but she's not the only one. We did a little digging and all manner of celebrities are slowly coming out of the woodwork to admit that the perfect bodies people see on the red carpet can be attributed to hard work and Spanx. Oprah, Eva Longoria and Gwyneth Paltrow use them, just to name a few. Tyra says:
Every celebrity walking down the red carpet. You think she’s all just naturally like ‘shooop.’ A lot of them have SPANX on. They’re these tight little tights. You put ‘em on, it sucks you up, baby. 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!’Watch Tyra and Andre discuss shapewear on Type F.

I'm looking forward to when I can try Jill Zarin's line called Skweez Couture. I think it's out in September...but it looks really cute and I'm always looking for great shapewear.
