What's Jada Pinkett Smith Got On Under Her Dress?

01/29/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Jada Pinkett Smith invariably looks so great on the red carpet, that we had to ask what her secret was. As husband Will Smith was being honored at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Saturday, Jad revealed to PEOPLE that she has two secret weapons: “I wear one of those elastic waist cinchers sometimes. You would not believe how small these dresses are! That and La Perla [lingerie]. Well, the La Perla’s not for the awards show, it’s for after. But that always helps to feel pretty underneath too. The other thing you have to make sure is that your skin is in good condition. There’s a lot of touching and kissing and hugging, so you have to be soft and smell good. I use Carol’s Daughter products. They are the best. They make your skin so soft, it’s like velvet and they smell great too, which is just as important.” If only getting arms like hers was as easy!

whatever, you’re just jealous!

How, when she’s made money of her own, she’s been in movies, and has her own rock band! She even does some modeling, so please don’t hate on miss Jada. Know what your talking about, before you say it! Ignore the haters Jada!

Wow ML, i think i detect a note of jelousy. Yes, Jada’s got it goin on. She is a beatiful, respectable black woman, a mother of 3 and wife of Will Smith. She obviously knows what it takes to be charming and classy while in public, but sexy for her hubby behind closed doors. She could have her own career if she wanted to. She knows how “set it off” on the big screen ;o). But as for now she loves her family and is taking the time to raise her kids right and provide a good home for her fam. Do your thang Jada!

She is so tiny that I didn’t think that she’d need spanx. She looks so pretty. Her and Will make a cute couple. She hasn’t put her career on hold. She was in 2 Matrix’s a few years ago and b/c you haven’t seen them doing anything lately may mean that they are working on something.

KPH- that doesn’t mean ML is jealous just by the comment. I’m so sick of hearing that argument.
Anyway though, obviously Will and Jada are very much in love and it’s nice to see that in Hollywood.
