Isla Fisher and Hugh Dancy Deny That They are True "Shopaholics"
Patricia Fields may have carefully crafted the over-top costumes for Isla Fisher in Confessions of a Shopaholic, but the Australian star admits that it’s a far cry from her style. The actress, clad in Matthew Williamson and Judith Ripka jewels, told PEOPLE at last night’s N.Y.C. premiere that “It was sort of a bit wasted on me. I try to keep up with fashion, but ultimately, I always go for comfort, first.” Fisher even joked that she was glad to be rid of the fanciful looks. “At the end of three and a half months, I was quite relieved not to see them again, because it represented so many early mornings.” And Fisher had to do a little bit of research before she started the role, and not just by going to Barney’s. She tells PEOPLE, “I researched a little bit by going to self-help shopping groups. I had so much fun.” Meanwhile, her co-star Hugh Dancy may have been dashing at the premiere in Prada, but he tells PEOPLE that he hardly feels bad about his shopping. “I don’t feel guilty about [shopping] because I don’t do enough of it to feel guilty.” If only we could all say that!
