Grace was nicknamed “Gucci Grace”

The first lady attracted much criticism for her extravagant taste, earning her the not-altogether fond nickname, “Gucci Grace,” or sometimes, “The first shopper.” After a 2003 trip to Paris, she got backlash for spending more than $120,000 on just one shopping expedition. In the years leading up to 2004, she allegedly withdrew nearly $8 million from the Central Bank of Zimbabwe, presumably for personal use.
