1. Kristen Bell revealed that she wore butt pads underneath her 2017 Golden Globes dress via an Instagram story. She later explained, "I was wearing a tighter dress and it’s like a padded bra, but for your butt."

2. Kristen also showed her medical tape method for a "non-surgical boob lift" where she will "tape [her] nipple to [her] shoulder."

3. Meanwhile, One Tree Hill star Bethany Joy Lenz opted for wearing a duct tape bra under a jumpsuit with an extremely plunging neckline — a trick that Kim Kardashian has long also been candid about.

4. Kim Kardashian has also said that she uses body makeup to cover up her psoriasis, both on the red carpet and off.

Body makeup is apparently something that the overwhelming majority of celebrities also use.

5. Tom Holland said that he used to wear shoe lifts and stand closer to the camera than his costars to appear taller.

6. In reference to her 2018 Emmys look, Sarah Hyland wrote on Instagram, "Here’s a secret. I was wearing two pairs of Spanx and chicken cutlets in my bra."

7. Mindy Kaling has also been open about shapewear, sharing this BTS snap of her in a corset and Spanx back in 2016.

9. Ashley has also said that she'll use acrylic nails on her big toes to keep the shape square — and that she learned the tip from Amber Rose.

10. Back in 2014, Lady Gaga said that she'd use face tape every day and would ask herself, "How am I going to form my eyes today with this tape? How will I pull back my neck with tape?"

11. Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch previously described her icy red carpet prep, saying, "I run ice all over my face for 30 seconds. It brings all the blood to the surface so you look plump and beautiful." She's also said elsewhere that she'll keep spoons in her freezer to put under her eyes in the mornings, so there's that.

12. As admittedly confirmed by the brand rather than the man himself, Daniel Kaluuya wore Fenty Beauty Pro Filt'r Foundation in shades #480 and #490 to the 2018 Oscars.

13. Jane Fonda said that she couldn't remove her 2018 Museum of Modern Art Gala red carpet dress by herself — so she ended up sleeping in it. "Never wanted a husband in my life until now," she wrote on Instagram.

14. Jameela Jamil wore skin-tight jeans under her 2019 Golden Globes gown because, in her own words, "It’s forking COLD."

15. Zendaya only wore socks underneath her vintage Valentino gown at the Euphoria Season 2 cast photo call because the dress couldn't be lengthened.

16. Finally, Naomie Harris, who you might know as Moneypenny in the James Bond franchise, spent an hour lying flat in the car to the 2017 Golden Globes to ensure that her Armani gown with hand-sewn crystals didn't crease. You can also see that she has tissue under her armpits, presumably to make sure that she didn't sweat on the dress beforehand.
