Awards Show season is upon us! That means enviable heels, glitzy gowns, ritzy updos and perfectly coiffed gentlemen, along with some gorgeous red carpet bodies primed with diet, exercise, and a lot of commitment. No star gets an easy pass to a red carpet body, especially during the awards-season media frenzy. With photographers circling from every angle, celebs are subject to fierce scrutiny from the fashion police, let alone our own at-home critiques of their (mostly) fabulous outfits. These stars know a thing or two about diet, fitness, health, and red carpet confidence. We’ve taken the time to steal their best tips: may you use them wisely, and may every day be your own red carpet experience, even if the most glamorous carpet you pass over is your front doormat.
