Celebrities' fashions you can afford

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.

Frieda Pinto
H&M nylon jacket
$34.50

Victoria Beckham
Goody headband
$4 for pack of 8 (she wears 2 at a time)

Jessica Simpson
Level99 Jeans
$74

Mariah Carey
American Apparel dress
$36

Beyonce
Spring Shoes
$50

Monykkka, rare music (47,028) by todd from Australia

Hi Monykkka. If you know where to look, there are lots of rare MC remixes and unreleased songs available online. I'm by no means advocating illegally downloading things, but it's there.
