Celebrity bargain hunters

We love it when stars show us that you can’t put a price on style. Many of our favorite Hollywood ladies prove time and again that they have a keen eye for fashion-- and a great bargain. In this episode, see what smart shoppers Selena Gomez, Katharine McPhee and Elizabeth Olsen picked up for $80 or less and where you can find the same on-trend styles.

Clearly, she can shop anywhere she pleases (and so can her boyfriend) but Selena Gomez is one star we see in bargain finds over and over again, even on the red carpet.  This time we spotted the singer/actress in vacation-casual mode wearing a black and white $45 cardigan from Forever21 with black shorts and a cropped white tee. Then we saw her out and about in New York City in an $80 scarf-print skirt from Zara. Also, in New York City, we spotted “Smash” star Katharine McPhee sporting one of our favorite trends of the moment—bright red colored “jeggings” from American Eagle. You can spend hundreds on a pair, but Katherine’s are a great buy at $44. And last, considering her garment industry connections, you’d think actress Elizabeth Olsen (that’s Mary-Kate and Ashley’s sibling in case you live under a rock) would wear only couture or the latest pieces from Elizabeth and James. Not so. We caught her at Sundance wearing some rust colored jeans with a $56 tiger-print sweater from Topshop.
