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

Double standards (50,475) by Mimi L. from

So it's fine that the "positive fans" calls the others arrogant and impatient and selfish (saying that only come back to Mariah when she is back on top and leave her when she is going through a rough patch) but it's wrong that the "fair weather fans" will call out the people as enablers coddling Mariah with lies and refusing to help her see her fla... read more

RJJ12 (50,474) by Mimi L. from

If I remember correctly Nick was not jealous of the male lead from YME. He was jealous of Miguel. Mariah said it herself that when Nick saw pictures of Mariah in a bikini sitting infront of Miguel and leaning on him behind while they were on a boat heading towards the grotto for the shoot of Hermosa, he lost his mind. This came straight from Mariah... read more
