Lint Roller

Nothing can take the chic away from a little black dress than pesky lint. Thankfully, it's the easiest fashion woe to solve.

Power Panties

When packing for a photo shoot, a wide assortment of shapewear is a must-have. The most trusty and versatile style is the one that started it all: power panties.

Deodorant Removing Sponge

If you've ever constructed the perfect ensemble only to have it ruined by a rogue deodorant mark...imagine how painful it must be when it happens to you professionally. This smart little sponge is one of the most amazing products to have come across our desks and can work miracles.

Nipple Covers

Visible nipples can ruin an otherwise gorgeous photo and don't always work well in the real world, either. If you're a small-busted woman who chooses to go without a bra in slinky tops or filmy sundresses, try nude nipple covers to avoid a peep show.

Bathrobe

Designer gowns are too pricey for lounging while a starlet or model gets her hair and makeup done—a sumptuous robe is much more appropriate. Copy the glam trick by wearing one while primping. It's far more chic than PJs and won't risk getting that day's duds messy.

Double-Sided Tape

Double-sided tape isn't just for risky, barely there fashion. Stylists use it constantly to make sure fabric isn't flapping or puckering and getting in the way of a shot. Use it at home to keep wrap tops and dresses from over-exposing or to keep pesky straps up (and bra-straps covered.)

Nail Polish Removing Pads

The cardinal rule of a fashion stylist is to always be prepared. These all-in-one polish removing pads are genius and easy to use/transport since the pads are pre-soaked with remover.
