Is the recession hitting celebrities? Forget pricey labels, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Jessica
Simpson and Frieda Pinto have gone from super chic to crazy cheap. So it seems even stars

shopping their closets and scouring stores such as H&M. Below are examples of the A-listers
and some of the bargains they love.
