Her fondness for designer shoes and animal print has already made quite an impression in the masculine world of Westminster.
So one can hardly imagine what fellow MPs made of Theresa May’s latest outfit, which managed to combine tweed, ruffles and multicoloured patchwork.

Mrs May, who was hosting the event, paired the flamboyant jacket with a ruffled purple dress and matching stilettos with a bow detail.

She was photographed wearing it as she left Downing Street after a meeting last November.
Past sartorial statements include a pair of leopard print wellington boots, which she wore to the Tory party conference in 2007.
