  • Tyra Banks loves her Spanx so much, she crows about them any chance she can. From her show to her website, she's all about Spanx--all the time. She 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!'"
