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.

Vegas concert / Thank God I Found You (53,658)
by Trish from USA
I got to see the show on Wednesday 5/20, and overall I loved it because I loved hearing some of the older songs live, but I do have a gripe. No, not about her voice which still brings me to tears, but about Thank God I Found You. Mariah stripped it down and sang with just her and the piano (something she doesn't do *nearly* enough anymore) and it w... read more (Friday 22 May 2015; 8:43)
#1 To Infinity is still doing well Internationally (53,657)
by Travon...The Nostalgic of Truth from USA
I am pleased with international fans and their response to this album. Music sales might be nothing now in the USA but international countries tend to still buy albums. People or haters say Mariah is not a global artist but how can you explain this consistent effort with no promotion in these countries for almost 5 straight days. The United Kingdom... read more (Friday 22 May 2015; 8:33)
