I love when I open a magazine or go online and see celebrities wearing “cheap” clothes. Sometimes I get so irked when all they wear is designer duds. I know they have the bankroll to wear whatever the heck they want, but I like seeing them in something I could purchase myself.
It makes them seem more personable to me.
This morning I logged online and found this photo of Natalie Portman sporting a Rodarte for Target dress that costs $40 on the red carpet.
Ah, how I love seeing a dress I can afford on a star who is so likable and fun!
That got me to thinking, “what other celebs wear less expensive clothes, even some of the time?”
Most famously was Sharon Stone at the 1996 Oscars. She showed up wearing a GAP turtleneck and Valentino skirt. She’s been regarded as one of the fashion trendsetters of the decade for her unconventional take on fashion.
I quickly found some other celebs who have been wearing clothes, shoes and accessories we “normal” people can afford.
Ashlee Simpson-Wentz wearing Kenneth Cole boots, $98
Kristen Bell in a $26 Guess tee
Blake Lively shops at American Eagle while wearing AE jeans, $30
Kate Walsh pairs her GORGEOUS red carpet dress with a $30 Aldo clutch
Sienna Miller really takes the cake though. She’s wearing a $4 tank top from Walmart. She wins BIG points in my book.
Even in magazines celebs are wearing commercially available clothes.
Anyone else love the recent Rodarte for Target line? Teen Vogue does, putting Dakota Fanning in the bow-back leopard gown for their recent issue.
If only more celebs would take notice and realize that they don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on all their clothes, just because they can.
