45 sec read

They might have more money than the rest of us, but even Hollywood style icons are tightening their designer belts in the financial crisis. Some of my favorite starlets shared their budget style tips at the recent New York Fashion Week.

Michelle Trachtenberg keeps her quirky style image by mixing pieces from budget retailers H&M and Target into her wardrobe. With designers like Hayden-Harnett and Devi Kroell creating cute accessories for Target, Michelle says even her teen fans can afford to follow her style.

I have always kept in mind that my fans are teenagers and they don’t have a lot of money to spend. They like to get looks for less,” she explained

Spending less is nothing new for 90210 star Jessica Stroup, who says she’s “always been a bit frugal.” She recommends looking out for sales and reinventing her old pieces. After all, yesterday’s It bag is today’s vintage statement!

Even heiress Nicky Hilton is getting more financially savvy.

I’m being smarter about my spending. I’m not going into stores and buying anything. I am buying more pieces instead of just a bunch of clothes,” she explained.

Gee, when Nicky Hilton becomes a spendthrift I think we all know times are tough!
