I think we can all agree on this: Jennifer Aniston, Rosamund Pike and Lupita Nyong’o looked absolutely stunning last night at the Oscars.

Although we can’t have all of the stars’ secrets, The Ranch at Live Oak / Malibu, a luxury wellness spa recently visited by Mandy Moore and Minka Kelly, is able to help you to recreate some of the hottest red carpet moments with expert tips on how to perfect your body.

The key to these red carpet home-runs is to pick your best asset and make it rock (hard) with an exercise routine that tones it to perfection! Highlighted below were some of the biggest trends and accompanying tips to master the looks.

For A-List Arms

It’s no surprise that sleeveless dresses were a big hit! Scarlett Johansson Julianne Moore and Jennifer Aniston proved that toned arms are a must-have accessory! If your mission is to embrace the sleeveless look, try this:

The move: Carry 3-5 lbs. weights in each hand while walking or hiking – better yet, alternate between bicep and triceps curls!

For Celebrity Legs

Did you notice that high slit Chrissy Teigen, Rosamund Pike and Nicole Kidman donned on the red carpet? And those gams – flawless! Create some major leg envy by trying this:

The move: Run barefoot in the dry sand. It’s guaranteed to tone your legs and build nice high calf muscles. Not near a beach? Try taking the stairs instead of the elevator or practice your sprints.

 For Hollywood Backs

The move: Reverse sit ups are perfect for strengthening your back muscles. Try balancing your stomach on an exercise ball or lay on the floor.
