  • The Japanese Prime Minister merges with traffic aided by men in white gloves

  • The world is losing it over Theresa May's leather trousers, but is it taking away from the politics?

    Forget Brexit, it’s a pair of designer, leather trousers that’s currently dominating British politics. ICYMI Prime Minister Theresa May wore a pair of £995 Amanda Wakely, leather trousers in a photo shoot for Sunday Times Magazine and the sartorial decision seemed to upset one of her former Ministers. Former Education Secretary Nicky Morgan, who was demoted when May first took office, told The Times that the trousers had been “noticed and discussed” in Tory circles.

  • Theresa May wore a skirt that showed her knees and the British public couldn't handle it

On Tuesday the TUC conference in Brighton passed a motion that called for the law to be changed “to enable people to not be compelled to wear high heels at work” - and a union representative at the event urged Theresa May to wear flats in solidarity. According to The Huffington Post, GMB delegate Penny Robinson told the conference hall: “We now have someone running the country who can set an example for the rest of us by making a point of wearing sensible shoes.

  • The Media’s Reaction To Having A Female Prime Minister

    While having a woman at number 10 can mean several things for gender equality, it takes more than just putting one in power to change the world - and especially public attitudes towards women in politics. Going with the cruel mistress theme was The National’s cover, which featured May as Cruella de Vil (imaginative, we know), wild hair, talons and bright lipstick in place. The Daily Star apparently went for a big image of Theresa May next to a photo of a woman with her breasts out with the headline “Darling Buds of May”, though we haven’t spotted it online yet.

  • Samantha Cameron Looks Set For Spring On The FROW At Christopher Kane’s LFW Show
