New York: British actress Helena Bonham Carter wore the cheapest sparklers for the Oscars red carpet.

The star wore four small, bedazzled crowns in her massive updo that were actually charms from a pair of Flip Out flip-flops given away at the Extra Luxury Lounge at the Four Seasons hotel, reports New York Post.

Helena`s mom, Elena, picked up a pair of 20 dollars flip- flops with the 10 dollars crowns on them from the lounge on Sunday.
A source said that when Helena saw them, she sent a handwritten note from her room to the "crown people," requesting more of them for her hair.
