Boris’ New Baldness-Battling Barnet

Guido has previously noted that balding Boris is losing his locks, so it is no surprise to see his hair cropped shorter and brushed forward to disguise that thinning top:

It is more flattering from above:

The age old rule in British politics is that bald men in the television age do not beat rivals with a full head of hair. Think Tony Blair versus William Hague, IDS and Michael Howard, nor can we forget Maggie versus Kinnock. In every election the slap-head loses. Could Boris’ new baldness-battling barnet be a sign that his leadership campaign is shifting up a gear?

UPDATE: A friend of Boris gets in touch:

“Don’t get too excited. Cropping shorter isn’t new Mayoral policy, it’s something he revisits every few months with the help of his Turkish barber!”

Guido’s Fashion Tips: Get the Grassroots Out Uniform

Philip Hollobone stole the show at the launch of the third Leave campaign, Grassroots Out. That Union Jack-et proves patriots can show off their Eurosceptic views while channelling Geri Halliwell. 

Now Hollobone’s fellow Grassroots Outer Peter Bone is trying to outdo him for outrageous clobber. Judging by this new green and black “G.O.” tie snapped by Chris Hope.

Get the whole Grassroots Out uniform and have the confidence to strut your away to parliamentary sovereignty…

Will Corbyn Wear White Tie?

Jeremy Corbyn is attending the Queen’s State Banquet tonight, though will he wear white tie? Miliband wore appropriate evening dress at the Palace for the Queen’s banquet in honour of Michael Higgins:

Gordon wooed the Saudis in white tie in 2007:

The Queen’s state banquet for the president of Israel came naturally for Mr Tony:

Here is Callaghan at the Queen’s state banquet for President d’Estaing of France:

Wilson wore white tie:

If Clement Attlee can do it…

Guido will happily pay to rent it for him…

Guido’s Fashion Tips: Corbyn’s Presidential Makeover

Has Jeremy Corbyn had a makeover? The Labour leader stepped up to the despatch box this afternoon in the natty navy blazer bought for him by his sons, classically styled with a crisp blue shirt – complete with collar stiffeners? – and the top button uncharacteristically fastened. Power-dressing Jezza finished his new smart look with a Red tie, unusually neatly done up all the way. Where is the unkempt hair? Cropped shorter to disguise those thinning greys. Where is the straggly beard? Trimmed closer to accentuate his sexy socialist jawline. The new look Jeremy looks positively Presidential…

Sam Cam’s Chic £150 Conference Dress

sam cam dress

Samantha Cameron stepped at conference today in a £150 “poppy red” dress from Whistles. She teamed the textured crepe number that Whistles claims is designed to “flatter the silhouette” with a sensible pair of grey suede heels from L.K.Bennett. It wasn’t just Dave stealing Labour’s clothes…

Alison McGovern’s Shadow Treasury #EverydaySexism

Labour’s City spokesman Alison McGovern is receiving plenty of support after revealing a rather rude letter from a viewer accusing her of deeming it “necessary to demonstrate your cleavage on TV”.

A case of #EverydaySexism for sure, but this is not the first time Alison’s attire has caused consternation.

Attendees at the Shadow Treasury’s pre-Budget briefing with the IFS back in July claimed she “arrived late looking scruffy in a badly-fitting, too tight dress” and spent the meeting “yawning and texting on her phone”. It’s a sad day when Alison can’t convince her own colleagues to maintain eye contact either…

Guido’s Fashion Tips: Labour Leadership Edition

Where does Andy Burnham buy his suits? GQ have asked the big question:

“God, do I have to… This is going to get me in trouble. It’s an Armani suit, this one. [Is it off the peg?] Oh God, yeah. To redeem myself a little bit, I only ever go in the sale time. Boxing Day every year, I take myself off and get two suits at half the price of what they normally are.”

A typical Armani Collezione suit made from virgin wool will set you back the best part of a grand. Burnham insisted his other suits are only Jaeger, where a navy wool mohair modern suit, not dissimilar to the one he is wearing above, costs a mere £700. Liverpool has over a dozen bespoke tailors, man of t’people Andy has his made in Milan…

The Telegraph have meanwhile located Jeremy Corbyn’s vest supplier, Ali Rifat of B&H Quality and Underwear and Socks in Nag’s Head market. He sells ’em to Jez for £1.50…

Liam Fox shreds Cameron’s Calais scaremongering:

“Sad and disappointed to see our Prime Minister stoop to this level of scaremongering, especially as he knows the Calais agreement is nothing to do with the EU and agreed between the two govts”
