The glitter of the red carpet may seem frivolous or even gauche in times like these, but stars are showing their prudence.

Sitting front row at Matthew Williamson on Tuesday Eva Longoria Parker said " I've always been pretty frugal about everything I wear on the red carpet. I return it all the next day."

Monet Mazur still likes to glam it up at events for work, but she's curbed her fashion spending habits away from the camera flashes. "I'm certainly not running to Christian Louboutin as much," lamented Mazur.
