|Well, she is specifically described...

in consequence of the missive, My picture of Mrs. Allen, penned by Angela S
Mrs. Allen was one of that numerous class of females, whose society can raise no other emotion than surprise at there being any men in the world who could like them well enough to marry them. She had neither beauty, genius, accomplishment, nor manner. The air of a gentlewoman, a great deal of quiet, inactive good temper, and a trifling turn of mind were all that could account for her being the choice of a sensible, intelligent man like Mr. Allen.
As I think on this... the description of Catherine:
I think Mrs. Allen, being no beauty seeks out any attention and compliment she can get, so she hopes to be admired for her attire and taste.
