She’s the only the second female prime minister Britain has ever had, but Theresa May blew off any pressure she may be feeling on the home front last night to celebrate with some of the country’s most famous faces.
Ms May attended the Pride of Britain Awards with a slew of stars, including Cliff Richard, Joan Collins and Prince Charles, and looked absolutely fabulous from head to toe.
She sported a navy and black dress cut above the knee with a scooped neckline at the front that turned into a deep V at the back. The dress was designed by British designer Amanda Wakeley who said it, “exudes femininity… while the deep V cut at the back exposes a sensuous flash of skin”. Ms May’s shoes, by Dolce and Gabbana, were light-blue lace with a decorative broach on the toe.
While most people loved the look, others were less convinced by her modern makeover.
“Wish she would cover her legs a bit more looks rather undignified,” wrote one observer.
“I know we’re not as harsh on the men, but it’s a risky look for a female PM,” said another.
Others weren’t so quick to judge though and heaped praise on her for stepping out in something “chic and stylish”.
“Mrs may looks stunning!” said one fan.
“Wow! If I had your work load, worries and responsibilities I’d just want to lie down at the end of the day on the sofa with a glass of wine and dread what tomorrow will bring! You look great. Very inspiring! Thank you Mrs May,” said another.
Ms May stepped into the role of prime minister when former PM David Cameron stepped down earlier this year after Britain voted to leave the EU. While she came into the job under difficult circumstances, she has received a huge boost in the polls with high approval ratings and all signs pointing towards her winning the next election.
