Now more than ever it’s becoming popular to do more with less. When it comes to celebrities, let’s face it – we all know that they can pretty much afford whatever they want – in a good or bad economy. Here are three celebrity moms who have admitted that less is more.
A-list mama Angelina Jolie keeps her wardrobe to a minimum. She tells the December issue of Vogue about her “very tiny closet” “As Brad?ll tell you–and my kids–apparently Mommy only wears black. I like to get up so every pair of pants goes with every top, every dress goes with every shoe. I?ve a very tiny closet. Brad?s always laughing at me. Some days, yes, I have the nightgown that looks like a dress that I can sleep in and pick the kids up at school. And maybe take a meeting if I switch into heels.”
We all love her low maintenance approach to her wardrobe. She does wonders for a regular t-shirt. Last year Garner told PARADE, “I am in jeans that are on the floor from last night and one of the five t-shirts that I rotate.” The actress also has no problem doing leftovers. A typical day is “a little bit of time with each kid and then we all play together. Where I make dinner where there’s enough left over for another day. And if the day ends with a glass of wine and a conversation with my husband [Ben Affleck] that’s a good day.”
Sarah Jessica Parker
Sarah Jessica Parker has made it no secret that her son James Wilkie wears hand-me-downs. Parker grew up as one of eight siblings in an impoverished family, and doesn?t want her son to be spoiled. “James only wears hand-me-downs because I?ve got all these older nephews,” Parker, told PARADE. “I am not kidding. I don?t think I?ve ever bought him any clothes. Maybe a new winter?s coat.”
We’re so excited to be giving away a new Microsoft Windows Phone 7 to one lucky reader!
