Gucci Grace Under Fire - A First Lady's Ambition Cut Short

Grace Mugabe had the world at her feet, a national airline at her disposal for shopping jaunts around the world, where she stayed at luxury hotels without a care for the staggering cost. 

Her husband Robert Mugabe was president, and she was inching ever closer to assuming the reins of power once the 93-year-old was ready to relinquish them.

Now her fate is in the hands of her political opponents and her whereabouts unknown, and her husband remains under house arrest at the presidential palace in Harare. He was allowed a brief moment to emerge into public view Friday, attending a graduation ceremony in the capital.

A woman on the verge so close to having her political desires fulfilled, Grace Mugabe's future is now in turmoil.

Her woes are reminiscent of another first lady who had also nursed presidential ambitions: Isabel Peron, the third wife of Argentinian strongman Juan Peron, who was 35 years her senior.
