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

We all have been wanting to see MC more relaxed and less diva and tha... read more

Mariah is doing just fine (51,213) by Luke from United Kingdom

I'm pretty sure the carpool was just a bit of fun. She didn't get into that car to start belting out her biggest hits, but I'm sure if she did someone would complain that she needs to rest her voice and not be doing that lol. She also displayed an incredible amount of vocal talent at her Christmas shows and on the tour before that. Plus random mome... read more

Bring on what? (51,212) by Carol from Spain

I believe the Corden car ride thing was just to be a pip moment, for people to see another side of Mariah. Why are you saying bring it on? Mariah has nothing to prove. She doesn't have to bring anything, once she already brought everything there as. She was tired, she was working at night, maybe recording? Why are people overanalizing this? Always ... read more
