Theresa May endured an disastrous speech today when she lost her voice and was faced with a prankster handing her a P45.

But at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester, the prime minister continued to impress with her sartorial flair.

Turning up to the conference in a plain pair of kitten heels, May changed into a jewel-encrusted pair by Russell & Bromley.

The £265 teal suede shoes appeared to be May’s way of showing that she can have fun – if only in the fashion department. The look was at complete odds with her speech in which she stated: “I don’t mind being called ice maiden.”

Russell and Bromley appear to be the prime minister’s favourite accessory store as she revealed in August that she has a discount card.

While her conference shoes were covered in jazzy bees and ladybirds, May’s dress was an altogether plainer affair. The fitted blue style was created by her new favourite designer, Daniel Blake, especially for the occasion.

Blake’s clean cuts and impeccable tailoring have clearly impressed the prime minister as she has worn several of his designs in recent months.

They may not be leather trousers but this look proves May is in the running for political style icon.

Perhaps she already is, in fact, as the shoes have already sold out.
