Iceland's first lady Eliza Reid surprised people. She wore a black jacket at a movie awards show. The jacket was not expensive. She bought it in a Red Cross charity store. Iceland's Red Cross was happy with this news. It said the first lady looked, "awesome in a gorgeous jacket from the Red Cross".

Eliza Reid is from Canada. She met her husband, Iceland's president, at Oxford University. She didn't know she would become Iceland's first lady. She is popular in Iceland. She has a normal life. She goes shopping and eats out in the city with her children. The Red Cross hopes people will buy clothes from its charity shops.
