Gallery: Lingerie at NY Fashion Week

New York - Even models love their Spanx.

The global retailer GS Shop, based in Seoul, South Korea, sent the skinny ones down a runway on Tuesday in teensy boy shorts, Wonderbras and stretchy shapewear that helped make Spanx inventor Sara Blakely a very wealthy woman.

Victoria's Secret Angel Miranda Kerr was on hand for the lingerie walk that provided an early start to New York Fashion Week's official kickoff on Thursday.

In white, black and neutral tones, some of the models wore one-piece peekaboo Spanx that showed off their legendary lifting Wonderbras, while others sported animal prints, lacy pinks and blues. A few flaunted Playboy Bunny-like black bowties. Playtex, another giant in “foundation garments,” also contributed some skimpy looks.

Compared to Wonderbra, founded in 1935, Spanx is the new kid. Blakely launched her brand in 2000 and added Manx (Spanx for men) in 2010. - Sapa-AP
