But as a young lady who can’t say no to a beautiful dress or accessory, Isla Fisher is not to be denied, and her irrepressible comic personality overcomes a number of the film’s impediments. But, in time-honored fashion, the compulsion is flaunted in order to be cured, so in the end, “Confessions of a Shopaholic” can position itself not as a remnant of a financially excessive era, but as a cautionary tale and even a call to throw out your credits cards — or least to keep them well holstered. Also not helping is the way Rebecca (Fisher) continually stumbles upward in the high-powered New York publishing world, shown as still flourishing.
At first glance, “Shopaholic,” which launched in print in the U. in 2000, would seem to test the limits of how far the temptations of shopping and the needless amassing of accoutrements can be fetishized.
They were also photographed together at a Hamptons party in summer 2016.
Brinkley, 63, wore a double-denim look paired with a blazer and heels, while Foster, 67, kept it casual in jeans and a peacoat.
The outing comes a few months after the two first sparked relationship rumors after they were spotted together at The Polo Bar in New York City last December.
Determined to be debt-free, Rebecca sets her sights on a dream job at Alette - the biggest fashion magazine in NYC - but ends up (ironically) bagging a position at financial journal Successful Saving instead.
With the debt collectors on her tail, her shopping addiction spiralling out of control, and a crush on her boss brewing, can things get any worse for our fashion-loving heroine?

A very gifted comedienne and a bulging shopping bag of inane antics and material-girl excess wrestle to a draw in “Confessions of a Shopaholic.” The third high-profile chick flick, after “Bride Wars” and “He’s Just Not That Into You,” to be released within the first six weeks of the new year, this adaptation of the first two of Sophie Kinsella’s massively popular novels strains far too hard for comedy that seldom erupts with full force and inevitably betrays a free-spending mindset that now feels gone with the wind.
