The late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher named some of her outfits after other world leaders, including Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and former US President Ronald Reagan.
The incident is detailed in the latest Margaret Thatcher Archive Trust release, which oversees the gradual release of the former leader's private files, the BBC said in a report on Saturday.
Records have shown that Thatcher, the first British prime minister, has named more outfits after Gorbachev, the eighth and last leader of the former Soviet Union, than any other leader, followed by Reagan.
An entry from her private diary reports that she was wearing her "Pink Chanel Gorbachev" during a visit to the Granada Television Studios in Manchester in January 1990.
She had worn the same dress eight months earlier when she housed Gorbachev in London.
Margaret Thatcher Archive Trust's Chris Collins said that "only certain men" received the award for wearing an outfit named after them.
For example, he noted that Thatcher named a dress that she wore when she met French President Francois Mitterrand at Waddesdon Manor, the Buckingham country house where the meeting took place.
When she met President George H.W. Bush in 1990 included her in her "Black Dull Suit".
The former prime minister's baptism of her wardrobe was not limited to foreign leaders whom she admired, the BBC report said.
BBC broadcaster Terry Wogan, who interviewed Thatcher in January 1990, had several outfits named after him, including a "Wogan Long" and a "Wogan Short".
Another entry from 1990 says that she wore her "Wogan Burgundy" with the Bank of England.
