New York, February 18 (ANI): An American author says that Isla Fishers new film Confessions of a Shopaholic could be about Abraham Lincoln’’s wife.
“Mary Todd Lincoln was the original fashionista first lady and first to ever have been described as having shopping mania,” the New York Post quoted Catherine Clinton, author of the biography Mrs. Lincoln a saying.
“She enjoyed her shopping trips to Manhattan so much that reporters started following her around and into shops. She was addicted to gloves like Imelda Marcos was to shoes. And she also loved lavish gowns, cashmere shawls, diamonds and pearls,” added the writer.
She further stated that, ironically, Mary “was crucified in her own time for buying pricey Haviland china for the White House dinners. And yet reproductions of Mary Lincoln’’s china was what everyone was eating from at Barack Obama’’s inauguration dinner.” (ANI)
