You might not expect to see a star walking the red carpet in a look from your own closet, but even celebs love a bargain. We’ve caught fashion A-listers taking a hiatus from their designer duds in low budget (but high fashion) looks from favorites like Topshop and ASOS, proving that you can be cheap and chic.
Penny-pinching doesn’t mean scrimping on style, as Sandra Bullock showed at a Berlin photocall for The Heat. She blended high and low, pairing a black Michael Kors blouse with an edgy leather pencil skirt from ASOS and stomping the red carpet in a pair of Tabitha Simmons gladiator sandals. Miranda Kerr could have her pick of designers, but her summery street style came straight from the mall: while strolling in NYC, she wore a blurry floral Topshop skirt—OK, so her bag is Givenchy. Beyoncé Knowles celebrated Kanye West’s birthday in another on-trend look from Topshop. She gave her striped, two-piece ensemble an injection of color with poppy pumps. One way to get a taste of the high life without blowing the bank is Target’s designer collaborations—Kate Young designed Debby Ryan’s cute dress with a bow accent. Olivia Palermo loves showing off her designer style, but while arriving at the Nice airport for Cannes, she wore a flippy colorblocked skirt from Zara.
