Revealed! The Stars' Oscar Beauty Secrets

Tuesday, July 3, 2012

Oscar beauty and fashion has arguably eclipsed the awards themselves, and we all love catching a glimpse of our favourite stars on the red carpet. This year's ceremony was no exception and actresses such as Jessica Alba, Nicole Kidman and Cameron Diaz wowed us with some fabulous frocks. Best Actress winner Marion Cotillard dazzled in a Jean-Paul Gaultier creation, eschewing her usual Chanel. The Devil Wears Prada star Anne Hathaway also sparkled at the ceremony in a beautiful red one-shouldered Marchesa frock with floral detail. Cate Blanchett, nominated for Best Supporting Actress and Best Actress, accessorised her baby bump in a satin Dries Van Noten dress. However, for many of these women, red carpet glamour doesn't come naturally. Their glowing appearance on the red carpet is actually due to personal trainers, cleavage facials, intense dieting, stiletto foot surgery, under-arm botox and, of course, last-minute liposuction. David Kirsch is a Hollywood-based trainer renowned for whipping celebrities into shape. He said: "If their schedule allows, they'll come in a month beforehand, but on average it's 2-4 weeks before the big night." Before prescribing his clients an appropriate fitness regime, David will discuss the dress with them, "I want to make sure the exposed area is at its best, bearing in mind the camera will add a little weight. There can be no jiggle." David's clients include Liv Tyler, who worked out with him twice a day before last years Oscar event. If a star's schedule will not permit them to exercise, they must turn to good old-fashioned dieting. Helen Mirren confessed that she had been "dieting for a month" before one Oscar ceremony and stars have turned to increasingly bizarre ways to lose weight. Heidi Klum is thought to eat salads covered in vinegar, which suppress her appetite before an event, as well as sniffing grapefruit essence to stop her craving sugar. If stars can't lose weight naturally, they turn to last-minute liposuction. Indeed, at a recent Oscar ceremony, one TV star thought she had a bump of fat that spoiled her dress. So, rather than swap her fancy frock for another, she simply called dermatologist Dr Patricia Wexler, who said "it was easier to do a little liposuction than to fix the dress." Wexler also admits, "I have had designers demanding liposuction for an actress who didn't look as good in their gown as they wanted her to. One designer rang ten days before the Oscars complaining that it was impossible to change the dress. It was a really low-back dress and the star's waistline wasn't smooth enough. I did the lipo and by Oscar night she looked great."
