19 Stars That Can Wear Cheap Clothes and Still Look Like a Million Bucks

Hollywood stars are people that can basically afford to wear anything they want. Dresses from luxury brands that they wear just once, expensive underwear, or accessories that are so expensive it’s hard to believe. Very often, they don’t even give a second thought to the money they spend on their appearance. But then, there are those who don’t like wasting money, so they buy clothes at mass-market stores.

We at Bright Side have gone through the wardrobes of some movie stars and found those that can put together trendy looks for very little money. And at the end of the article, there is a bonus that proves expensive doesn’t always mean beautiful.

Bonus: Cheap dresses don’t always look worse than pricey ones.

The dress Natalie Portman wore to the Academy Awards show in 2017 is one of the cheapest dresses from the ceremony. And Kate Winslet’s dress for the 2016 Oscars is one of the most expensive ones. According to Forbes, it cost about $50,000. But still, the Titanic star’s dress was heavily-criticized and even compared with a trash bag. Very often, expensive doesn’t mean beautiful.

Do you think that cheap clothes can look as good as clothes from luxury brands? If you were a star, what kind of clothes would you wear?
