Beyonce spends £9,000 in 90 minutes on Oxford Street


As one of the world's biggest pop stars, Beyonce presumably finds it about as easy as Kate Middleton to get her hands on designer clothes.

So it's refreshing to see that the singer is not above going out and buying her own clothes... even if she goes about it in a slightly different way to the rest of us.

Beyonce hit Topshop on London's Oxford Street with her mum yesterday - so far, so normal.

But the Glastonbury headliner must have snapped up at least one floor's worth of clothes.

She spent £5,000 in just 50 minutes - the equivalent of £100 a minute.

We don't envy those behind the singer's entourage in the queue for the changing rooms.

Beyonce and Tina Knowles then headed up the road towards Selfridges, where they spent an extra £4,000 in just half an hour.

The pair - and their security guards - spent most of their time in the shoe galleries, but didn't try on any of the pairs they ended up buying.

A fellow-shopper told The Sun: 'It was like that shopping scene out of Pretty Woman. Everyone was gobsmacked at the speed she was choosing clothes.

'When she hit the shoe section she picked up even more speed.

'The woman clearly loves footwear.'


Or maybe she's just stocking up on more presents for her loved ones.

Beyonce bought her little sister, Solange, 25 pairs of shoes for her 25th birthday last month.

And last December she treated her husband, Jay-Z, to a $2 million Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport - the world's fastest road car - for his 41st birthday.

The generous singer has a lot to celebrate at the moment.

She wowed Glastonbury-goers when she closed the festival with a spectacularly energetic set at the end of last month, and repeated the magic last weekend at T In The Park festival in Kinross, Scotland, last weekend.

Beyonce and her mother will also have been getting inspiration for when they launch their own clothing line, House Of Dereon, in Selfridges in September.

It must be nice to be rich. I wish I could just fuck off and spend 9 grand on myself one afternoon. Jealous, not even gonna lie.
pinkshaya 13th-Jul-2011 07:11 pm (UTC)
I hear ya. I'd be happy to have a spare $90.00 right now... I doubt I'll ever have $900.00 to spend in one day.

quote_me_once 13th-Jul-2011 07:00 pm (UTC)
i don't know, is it really that great to have hundreds of pairs of shoes? i mean, i love shoes but i'm not a big shoe person. seems kind of like a waste of money imo... but whatever, i'd probably send the same on restaurants and foods.
loveumbrella 13th-Jul-2011 07:08 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'd spend my wealth on ridiculous art pieces and food (and gym lol).
I love clothes and shoes but imagine one day going through your wardrobe and finding pairs of über expensive shoes that you forgot you even had... D:
camillesaens 13th-Jul-2011 07:22 pm (UTC)
lol mte! I'd hire a certified tracy anderson trainer and chef, because I can't cook worth a damn.
hideyourhusband 13th-Jul-2011 08:09 pm (UTC)
I have a few Manolos, but it's very hard to buy shoes for me. One, I don't wear heels all the time. Two, I can't spend more than a few hundred. Seriously, they're shoes. You could walk in shit. I have have spend over a thousand on a purse, though. Don't want to imagine how much all of mine are worth.

If I was rich, I'd probably spend a lot on food(I can't cook) and art. Purses, too.

Clothes are think are a waste of money, too. You can wear a purse a lot. Shoes, too. Not matter how much your clothes cost, you can't wear it too much without looking tacky.

abbie 13th-Jul-2011 07:10 pm (UTC)
true, i'm a guy and not a shoe person and just jumped at how excessive that was, but if the shoe fits (WEY!)

i only have four pairs of converse, one pair of smart shoes and two pairs of boots.

I just want it to be fall so I can finally buy my grad school wardrobe.

IDGAF if it's pathetic but I will be the best dressed person in my second tier department if it kills me.

Dream big, kids.
fauxparadiso 13th-Jul-2011 07:07 pm (UTC)
lol I'm not gonna lie, I'm happy to getting more into the workforce cause I feel less awkward about dressing up, whereas my college campus is like 90% sweatpants and uggs.
dandyinmypants 13th-Jul-2011 07:11 pm (UTC)
I'm constantly mistaken for a high schooler if I'm dressed down at all so I have look put together 100% of the time to be taken seriously.

I'm not TAing this semester but I will probably I will be soon and I can't stand in front of a class full of people in just jeans and a hoodie and expect them to respect me.
xtinkerbellax 13th-Jul-2011 07:14 pm (UTC)
I'm so happy I didn't go to a campus school, so I was no exposed to sweats/pjs in class, even though the dorms were attached to the school, kids still got dressed to go to class.
camillesaens 13th-Jul-2011 07:25 pm (UTC)
PINK* sweatpants, tbh
croutonochrist 13th-Jul-2011 07:05 pm (UTC)
Shit, I'd do the same if I was richer than God.
