Beyonce has been in London working her butt off onstage in front of packed venues on her sold-out tour—but this past weekend, she managed to eek out a few hours for herself. Well, for shopping … for herself. And did she ever shop. The estimated total damage done at the Harvey Nichols department store: £6,000, aka just over $9,900 (depending on the day’s exchange rate). What did she slap all that plastic down for? Well, to kick things off, she is now the proud new owner of a chain bolero type-jacket (check it out, above!) by Parisian label American Retro. What else was on the sales receipt? She also bought a pair of large black Ray-Ban Wayfarers, a vintage jacket from emerging denim brand 13R, and a couple of pieces by designer du jour, Alexander Wang. Oh, and apparently, she seemed particularly enthused about Jade Jagger’s U.K. collection, Jezebel—she snapped up a scoop-neck dress, as well as a Lazer tank, £50 (below), and a Flouro Heart tee, £55 (below, too!).
And to finish things off, she picked up some stuff from Matthew Williamson, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Juicy Couture and bikinis from Eres and Missoni. (Vacation plans in her near future, perhaps?) Recession, say what? [Elle UK]
