Theresa May rewrote the fashion rules this week stepping out in not one, but two fashionably daring outfits.
On Monday, the Prime Minister attended the Pride of Britain Awards at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London, selecting an evening dress like we've never seen before. TM ripped up the rule book for what female politicians 'should' wear, opting for the Luna Midnight Short Dress by her favourite designer, Amanda Wakeley. Crafted from a beautifully weighted techno-cady material, the fit and flare style dress exudes femininity without compromising on a clean and tailored finish. The sculpted waist detail and the deep V cut at the back make this an unique and unusual choice for the PM. The selection of such a dress signifies May's fashion forward thinking and determination to wear pieces which she loves.
With a new gown came a new pair of shoes! Sporting Dolce & Gabbana for the first time, Theresa May chose the blue lace Belucci pumps from the Italian fashion house. Part of the Rainbow Lace collection, the kitten heel shoes are topped with sparkling Swarovski detailing.
The Prime Minister's second 'outside of the box' fashion moment came at Wednesday night's Spectator Awards. Accepting the honour of Politician of the Year, May's wicked sense of humour led her to don a hard hat and hi vis jacket- a not so subtle jab at former Chancellor George Osbourne's commitment to wearing these two safety items! Can you think of any other politician who would be game for that?!
Whilst poles apart, these two fashion moments tell us more about Theresa May's boldness to take risks with her clothes, and importantly, have the last laugh!
It was back to business in between these two moments. May launched the annual Poppy Appeal at Downing Street on Monday morning, wearing a tweed mix jacket, black trousers, oversized white pearl necklace and gold studded loafers from Russell & Bromley to greet veterans.
For the arrival of the Columbian President, Juan Man Santos, the Prime Minister wore a midnight blue shift from Amanda Wakeley, a navy hat and the Edelle Evergreen Tweed Jacket from LK Bennett. The awesome Vivacious block heels from Russell & Bromley made their second public appearance.
For PMQs and the visit of the Columbian President, May wore a navy dress and jacket. Excitingly, she debuted a new shoe from Russell & Bromley - the bronze Twister block heel pumps! Topped with a twisted black velvet bow, they are the ultimate luxe shoe to take from day to night.
Roll on the next prime ministerial fashion forward moment!
