Oscar winner Kate Winslet and actress Sofia Vergara ruled the red carpet at the 2011 Emmy Awards in Los Angeles Sept. 18, sporting glamorous, skin-tight gowns that showed off their luscious curves.

Kate Once Weighed 200 Lbs. & Abused Diet Pills

The 5’6″ Winslet, who once topped the scales at 200 pounds, looked fit and shapely in a body-hugging red Elie Saab dress. Kate, who once abused laxatives and diet pills as a teen, is now more leaner and healthier than ever, thanks to portion control and regular Pilates workouts at home.

“I just do my own stuff at home with the help of DVDs. A little bit of Pilates,” Winslet, 36, has said. “And just recently I started running, but I’m not very good.

“I have cellulite, I don’t go to the gym because I don’t have time but I do Pilates work out DVDs for 20 minutes or more everyday at home.”

Sofia Overcame Thyroid Cancer

Vergara, 39, who recently overcame thyroid cancer, was stunning in a coral one-shouldered Vera Wang gown with chiffon draping and tumbled tulle.

The 5’7″ Sofia maintains her sexy 125-pound bikini body by doing a cardio toning/strength-training program and Physique 57 workouts several times a week.

“Oh, I hate [working out]!” Vergara has said. “But I also know that at my age — I’m almost 40! — I have to do it to maintain my figure.”
