This is What a Publicity Stunt Looks Like

Point of Order, Mr Speaker! The Honourable Member for Camberwell and Peckham is surely breaching the Commons dress code at PMQs today. There is a precedent: Caroline Lucas was told to cover up when she wore a No More Page 3 t-shirt during a debate last year.

Incidentally, Hattie’s not-so trendsetting top is available from Whistles for an equality busting £45.

Those who wonder just how badly Labour are struggling as an opposition need to look no further than their Deputy Leader. Holding the government to account, one t-shirt at a time…

UPDATE: The profit from selling Hattie’s t-shirt goes to the Fawcett Society, a lefty ‘charity’ front for bashing the government. They even bid for a judicial review of the 2010 emergency budget and spend most of their time whinging about ‘the cuts‘. Cute of Labour to help them out…

Leaders’ Wives: Cos-t of Living Lib Dem Edition

Miriam complimented a business-like white shirt by showing her true LibDem colours with a yellow below-the-knee wool mohair skirt with folded front pleat, designed to sit on the waist, available from Cos for £89. Stylishly accompanied by a taste of home: gold heels from Spanish brand Uterqüe.

Nick wore a navy Hackett suit, with a white shirt and red tie from M&S…

Leaders’ Wives: Guidoian Edition

The bedwetters always complain about Guido’s fashion focused Leaders’ Wives conference coverage, yet the posts are always very popular and widely shared. More often or not they are followed up by the popular press. Today, Guido was particularly amused to see the not so popular Guardian’s Conference Diary by Sir Michael White, with a little help from Imogen Fox the deputy fashion editor, joining in on this important angle:

“Wilfully simple and unambiguously blue. The sartorial advisers for the leader’s speech had clearly opened the Farrow & Ball blue paint chart and locked the parameters at parma gray and drawing-room blue. How happy must they have been that the steel pillars at Birmingham’s the ICC fitted into the scheme. All the better to choreograph the image of David walking in his anonymous dark navy suit and matching tie (pitch blue, possibly?) holding hands with Samantha in her parma gray Hobbs sleeveless dress.”

Enough of the moaning. The readers want it…

Sam Cam’s £99 Austerity Busting Conference Dress

Sod the tax cuts, as ever Guido brings you the important leader’s speech news. Sam Cam was wearing a new frock from Hobbs.

‘The Penrose Wrap’ retails at a austerity-approved £149, though if she bought it online she could have picked it up for just £99!

The dress is both serene and versatile, with the crossover detailing at the waist creating a slender silhouette, complimented nicely by the sleeveless and knee-length structure.

Sam accompanied it with an old pair of LK Bennett shoes.

Guido’s Fashion Tips: What the Milibands Were Wearing

justine

Justine is wearing a fuchsia pink outfit with a black belt squeezing her middle. According to last night’s Standard claret is the colour for autumn – a shade of proletarian Pinot? “No f**king idea” who the dress is by, a Labour spokesman tells Guido.

UPDATE: Mrs Miliband was wearing Zara and Ed a Spencer Hart suit.

Downing Street Catwalk: Here Come the Boys

The usual suspects are upset at the Mail’s angle on the reshuffle. Gaby Hinsliff mused last night:

And don’t they all look lovely. There is an obvious reason why Gaby’s dream of a male lineup would not have made a very interesting feature:

All the moving men wore the identical outfits…

Curvy Alan Rusbridger Gets the Full Mail Online Treatment

Camped outside celebrity hangout Chiltern Firehouse,  Dave and SamCam’s fav in Marylebone for date night, the snappers spotted Nigella Lawson with an scruffy looking  lunch partner. But who could this “Harry Potter look-a-like” be?

“Alan, her lunchtime companion, wore a crumpled navy suit and a blue shirt which hung to his curves. His hair looked in need of a good brushing and he wore his recognisable round glasses – making him look like the fictional wizard.”

5 points to Slytherin.

Leaders’ Wives: Polling Day Fashion Edition

All the party leaders have now voted, with Dave and Ed convincing their wives to join them for the usual polling day shot. Nick Clegg appears to have brought a confused looking older friend along with him – believed to be his last remaining local supporter.

On the fashion front Justine played it safe, if a little mumsie, with a simple white tee, a causal navy blazer and some snazzy check print trousers. The epaulettes on the military jacket hardly scream femininity though. Meanwhile, SamCam is bang on trend in cropped navy trousers, complimented with blue court shoes and her favourite metallic dusky-rose silk top. Guessing Mrs Farage has returned to Germany to vote…

Mrs Osborne on George’s Diet

Both Osborne and Balls are on the celebrity 5:2 diet, though Guido hears not everyone was entirely happy with the chunky Chancellor’s austerity effort to cut his waist size. After a female aide changed Osborne’s hair and now his slimming regime, his wife Frances was overheard exclaiming: “If anyone is going to put my husband on a diet, it’s me.”

Cutting Remarks From the Chancellor

Coif connoisseurs rejoice: the Standard has the scoop. Osborne has given them an exclusive interview revealing all about his ‘Footballers that look like lesbians’ haircut:

“The Chancellor comes across as someone who has survived a miserable low (who could forget his dismay at being booed at the 2012 Olympics?) and emerged psychologically stronger or, perhaps, less afraid to fail. Perhaps that explains his Caesar haircut. “There are more important things, dare I say it, for the country to be talking about,” he cried, looking pained.

But whose idea was it and where was it done? Osborne struggles: “It was just a … I means it’s … it’s been made out to be some great big change, a bigger change than it was.” Does his wife Frances like it? “Oh, she likes it,” he said, the shutters slamming down.”

Who doesn’t…

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
