Britain’s new prime minister is not afraid of bright colours, which will make her fashion as interesting to watch as her politics.
From fluorescent suits to Thatcher bows – Liz Truss’s fashion journey to No 10
Liz Truss’ journey from Liberal Democrat speech-maker to UK Prime Minister has involved a number of eye-catching moments, not least the colourful outfits she has worn.
Whether standing on a podium, striding to and from 10 Downing Street, or hitting the campaign trail, the latest UK leader has made a name for herself with a number of striking ensembles.
Truss beat Rishi Sunak to the Tory leadership with 81,326 votes to 60,399, and has promised a “bold plan” to cut taxes and grow the economy.
While waiting to give her winning speech, her purple dress matched the purple seats at the venue, but perhaps more notably mirrored the plum attire of former American first lady Michelle Obama and the purple dress coat of US Vice-President Kamala Harris at Joe Biden’s inauguration in 2021.
