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

I recall back in the early 90's she'd hit the high note at every single song and by Can't Let Go she was so critizised that they even took the high note out of the radio/video version. Music Box saw MC using it scarcely and just as an adornment in Daydrem and Butterfly. Then everybody was so fond on the issue that MC's voice was going through a sev... read more

The Elusive Chanteuse Show and the Mariah fandemonium (47,517) by Baby from Sweden

LC and Deedre, so glad you all enjoyed the concert, as did I. Imagine, it was filmed by a fan, how much better wouldn't Mariah sound if it was recorded professionally? But I love how candid it was and how the fangurling was so on point. Encore encore encore. Lambs at their best. It's obvious to me that MC is getting undeservedly bad press on acco... read more

Mariah's hair (47,516) by Lee TS from USA

I hope this doesn't come off as ridiculous, well it is, but I'm not feeling her hair in the recent performances. She looked really beautiful, I think it was Yokohama with the side swept hair in soft waves. But during the China leg, her weave looks a bit raggedy especially the ends. Her glam squad needs to get it together. Mariah needs to bring back... read more
