kylieminogue_soundrelief.jpgHas the recession finally hit the A-list too? According to spies in Melbourne, Kylie Minogue has been indulging in a bit of bargain-hunting by shopping up a storm at a Salvation Army charity store.

Kylie spent less than AU$40 (around £20) while inside the Salvo's store, purchasing two summery dresses, a hat and a skirt.

"She was hiding under a hat and had the trademark big sunglasses on, but she still looked great," said store manager, Natasha Scott.

The pop princess is currently in her home city on holiday, where she brought along her new beau, Spanish model Andres Velencoso, to meet the parents.

I say, good for you Kyles! It's not the first time you've been spotted charity shopping and I hope it's not the last.
