Guido’s Fashion Correspondent has filed her first of three conference dress reactions:
“If the history of the coalition can be told through the details, what to make of Miriam Clegg’s white hot look? The £390 dress is by Scottish designer Henrietta Ludgate, apparently using sustainable materials. The white dress has a tiny peplum, a trend SamCam has also embraced – the idea is that the extra shape on the hips makes your waist look small.
One wonders if Miriam has been converted to her husband’s ex friends Colin and Livia Firth’s green carpet challenge. (Mrs Firth persuades her contacts book to wear sustainable fashion at high profile events, proving that you don’t have to be clad in hemp, to be green.)
As the Emmys showed, hot citrus colours are still an autumn trend, as much as in Brighton it would seem, as Los Angeles. Red plus yellow makes orange?! Presumably the footwear is an aesthetic not a political choice.”
Guido is liking the shoes, reaffirming Clegg as an Orange Footer.
