With plenty of cash to spend on designer clothes, you would think that spending hours in exclusive boutiques going through all of the amazing designs would be anyone’s idea of heaven, but these 5 celebrities all say they can’t stand shopping, even if they love clothes or are known for their personal style. Some hate the unflattering changing rooms or just putting on the clothes to see if they fit, while others can’t make up their mind and find the whole experience a nightmare, so get a stylist to do everything for them instead.
America has always found shopping to be a horrible experience, even as a child: “I’m the total antithesis of a shopaholic, I really am. I’m afraid of shopping. I don’t like to shop. I don’t like being in stores… I’ve never enjoyed shopping since I was young. It’s just not something that I like to do.”
Ozzy Osbourne loses it when he goes shopping: “I hate it. I f**king hate it. If I want a black shirt, I’ll find out my size and go and get one.Sharon has to look through every shirt in the shop. I end up losing it. An assistant will come up to me and say, ‘Mr Osbourne, can I interest you in this lovely pink coat?’ Me? Pink? The Prince of Darkness, in pink?”
Madonna can’t stand shopping for herself and gets her stylists to put together her wardrobe: “I don’t pay attention to British women’s style. I just run around in my tracksuit with sunglasses on. I have never liked shopping. I don’t like going into a store and going through the racks. I am happy to have girls do it for me.”
Cheryl prefers to shop online because she finds being in stores stressful and dressing rooms unflattering: “I tend to shop online – mostly online to be honest because I actually feel the whole thing of shopping actually really stressful. Just the lighting in dressing rooms makes you depressed for some reason.”
Beyonce doesn’t like trying on clothes when she is shopping because her mother used to make her try on a million outfits: “Because my mom was a stylist, I’ve been trying on clothes since forever. I was the guinea pig, but I hated it.Shopping reminds me of working, so when I have time off I don’t want to see any clothes. Plus, I was never really too much of a girlie girl.”
