Stars Like Bargains, Too!

11/29/2006 at 10:00 AM ET

Who says stars don’t love a bargain? Looking as chic as ever, Iman co-chaired the Citymeals-on-Wheels Power Lunch in soft grey slacks and this taffeta “Nonna” blouse from Club Monaco that costs only $99. Andie MacDowell recently picked up a glittery black tube top at Express for only $40, which she paired with an Oscar de la Renta skirt for a New Orleans charity event. (We’re guessing the skirt cost a little bit more!) And she’s not the only star loving Express — actress Sanaa Lathan slinked around a Playstation 3 party in their silver, spaghetti-strapped dress. These gorgeous fashionistas remind us that true style is about mixing it up, high and low (so that you don’t have to break the bank!).

Continuing proof that class/style and money are not mutally exclusive. Unfortunately, many celebrities still need to learn this. We’re fortunate to have Iman and the others to look to for this.

Bunky on

Very cool that even people with means sometimes resist spending a lot when they don’t have to.

But when did Iman start to look like Wanda Sykes?

Ellaine on

IMAN IS IN HER 50’S AND SHE LOOKS GREAT ,SHES STUNNING HER FACE IS AND USED TO BE ONE IN A MILLIAN.

Nina on

Alia on

I LIKE IMAN BUT MY FAVORITES ARE ELSA BENITEZ AND YAMILA DIAZ ARE SO GORGOUS.

SASHA on

MY FAVORITE SUPERMODEL IS ELSA BENITEZ NOT ONLY SHES STUNNING HER LOOKS ARE CLASSIC,BUT SUPERMODEL YAMILA IS NOT ONLY STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL I LOVE HER POUTY LIPS AND NO ONE TO ME IN THE NEWPORT NEWS AND VICTORIA SECRET CATALOGS CAN WEAR CLOTHS LIKE SHE DOES,SHE MAKES EVERYTHING LOOK LIKE A MILLION BUCKS.

DEBB on

I love Helana Christen she still one of my favorites.

Terressa on

OR DID YOU MEAN HELENA CHRISTIAN YOU HAVE THE LAST NAME RIGHT THOUGH.

Kate on

I loved Sanaa’s look in that Express dress! I always buys lots of great clothing from Express at great prices! They are always able to have the most stylish clothes and at way better prices than specialty stores or boutiques.

Tonya on

What about Helena Christian, I think she still looks great.

Heather on

Do you guys mean Helena Christensen aka the girl from the ‘wicked game’ video? Otherwise, i have no idea who you are talking about. and Iman DOES look like Wanda Sykes here! YIKES!

KIM on

well do you want me to compare comedian kathy griffen with all her plastic surgeries with Kate Blanchette oh yeah there both red heads except whats the difference,Iman looks great for her age and her face was stunning no denying that.

Erica on

That shirt is adorable. At first glance, it looks like it’s too young looking for me (and I’m 30!) but Iman makes it look sophisticated and appropriate for anyone! I would definitely buy it and wear it! She looks awesome in blue. On project Runway, Daniel V. made her a blue dress and it suited her as well. I never thought Iman was your typical good looking model (I prefer meanie Naomi Campebell’s looks over both Tyra and Iman) but Iman is UNDENIABLY a “model”. Elegant, regal, great sense of style and photogenic.

ZELLA on

NAOMI CAMPBELL IS A STUNNING WOMEN YOUR RIGHT,BUT IMAN NO QUESTION WAS AND IS A BEAUTIFUL WOMEN, BUT NAOMI KIND OF REMINDS ME OF THE NIGERIAN WOMEN TALL AND BEAUTIFUL ONLY IF THEY WOULD STOP GETTING A BUNCH FROM THE UKRAINE.

Kevin on

BRAZILIAN SUPERMODEL CINTHIA MOURA IS BONITA BEAUTIFUL ,SHE IS STUNNINGLY EXOTIC, AND I THINK SHE MITE HAVE BEEN AROUND BUT SHE IS A SIZZLER TO.

TESSA on

OH THERES ALSO JOSIE MORAN AN AMERICAN ITALIAN KNOCKOUT!!!

KIM on

ACTUALLY BOTH NAOMI AND IMANS LOOK I PREFER OVER TYRAS ,WHEN A WOMEN IS IN HER 50’S ACTUALLY CLOSE TO HER 60’S YOU CANNOT COMPARE MORE YOUTHFUL SUPERMODELS TO THEMSELVES AS THEY ARE NOW,IMAN OF COURSE STILL LOOKS NICE ,BUT SHE WAS A BEAUTIFUL STRIKING WOMEN AND SHE ACTUALLY STILL IS . I JUST WISH THERE WAS A MORE DIVERSE GROUP OF BLACK MODELS THERE ARE STILL MORE UNIDENTIFIED BUT I WISH THERE WAS MORE.

Ovian on

I FEEL THEY ARE GETTING TO MANY MODELS FROM THE UKRAINE ,ALOT OF THOSE GIRLS FROM THERE LOOK LIKE LITTLE RAG DOLLS WITH PETRA BEING IN EXCEPTION,IN THE OTHER HAND THERE IS TO MANY FROM BRAZIL ALSO BUT THE ONLY THING I CAN SAY ALOT OF THE BRAZILIAN MODELS ARE STRIKING , AND IF YOU THINK BRAZIL IS THE PLACE YOUR ONLY ONE TRACK MINDED THERE NEEDS TO BE MORE DIVERSITY THERE USED TO BE A TIME WHEN IT WAS THE TOKEN BLONDE LIKE HIEDI KLUM BEING MODELS BUT THERE IS STILL ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT.OH BY THE WAY YOU NEED TO CHECK OUT HOUNDURAS,PUERTORICO ,COLUMBIA AND THE CARRIBEAN ETC.

Gena on

IN GENERAL TYRA HAS THE BODY BUT IMAN FACE IS UNDENIALBLY ELEGANT AND CLASSIC BUT COMPARING TO MODELS WITH TOTALLY DIFFERENT GENERATIONS OF COURSE IS INCORRECT.

Jessa on

I actually think the models to me that I like and the best are not from Rio from other parts of Brazil.

nancy on

i love iman she is the somali star we are proud of u
we need many somali gils to be a top stars

K-Mo on

Happened to find this through an old link on another blog, but just wanted to add my two cents in:

1) If you are going to act like you know everything about models, esp. correcting someone, then please get the names right yourself (Helena Christensen, Josie Maran)

2) Hey she does look a bit like Wanda Sykes here. The first commenter was just making an observation of the similarity. Rather than getting mad at her, you should be getting mad at yourself for acting like that is an insult. How rude is that to Wanda?
