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
are curbing their spending and stepping out with affordable fashions. During this economic
downturn has the fashion world created its own bailout plan: H&M, American Apparel, and
(gasp!) Duane Reade?
Victoria, Beyonce, Mariah, Jessica and Frieda are beautiful, rich and stylish - but they
don't always spend a fortune to look like a million bucks. They are among the stars who
have sported discount duds on the red carpet. For instance, Mariah Carey wore a $36
American Apparel dress and accessorized it with a Gucci bag.
This "high-low" mix has always been around, however, the recession is seeing more people
shopping their closets and scouring stores such as H&M. Below are examples of the A-listers
and some of the bargains they love.
