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!

What does Will and Jada’s marriage have to do with how cute she looks? Last time I checked, Will and Jada have 2 kids together ( 3 kids total) and they will be celebrating there 10th year of marriage this year, Trophy I think not. Like many African American Hollywood couples, they have a “real” marriage and not any of this hollywood crap.

But getting back to what the topic was orginally about….Props to Jada, she looks great as always. I wonder if she has any Carol’s Daughter products slathered under that dress as well.



Mrs. West on

I think all of the negativity is unneccesary…This woman is a proven multi-talented individual, mother, actress, product-line manager, rock star, as well as, a devoted hollywood wife, who thru all the negativity, and name calling still smiles sweetly for your criticism!!! Have a good day ladies…

I totally agree with Mrs. West. Well said.

Mrs. West, I never dished her. I think she is awesome.

i think she looks fab. But if we want to talk about her work history, she started on A Different World one of the Cosby’s Shows, which aired for years. She also played the voice of the hippo in Madaqascar (sp). She played a role but not major in Colateral with Cruise and Foxx. Jada just has enough since to know how to balance family and career, how to be supportive and be philantropic. So if Will has a trophy wife them damn he picked a great one because she can handle herself on her own with out him.

Jada is the epitomy of how women of all backgrounds and races just have in going on! We can juggle being wife, mother, daughter, and a SUCCESSFUL career woman. Jada does it all. And as a native of Baltimore just like Jada, I have only good things to say about what she’s accomplished in her life. She has worked hard and loved hard, and she can definitely afford to CHILL whenever she wants. Not to mention that she has a husband that will hold her down at ALL times. So please don’t hate!

i like her style and talent as good as perfect. i like about her fashion how she dress as much as i look her. she is a good mother, actess and rock star. and one thing Mrs. West saide most of it I agree. she is a woundful woman and successful career she has. And her husband to his a successful career he has and he is a good looking he is.

I admire Jada and Will they are a great couple but I am one of the few that thinks Jada looks manly. She was really cute when she was younger but she has HARD look. By no means am I saying she is not attractive but she looks much older in the face than her years. Great body though
