On the right is Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary in HM Government, part time buffoon and doing his best to give the impression of a “professional appearance.” In the centre is his Australian counterpart Julie Bishop, who was in town to discuss Brexit and no doubt the possibility of trade agreements between the two countries in the future.
What is striking about this photographs is the style and élan of the Australians clothes and how incredibly smart and contemporary she looks. I don’t think I have ever seen a female politician wear shorts before but I have to say this woman carries the look off with the utmost confidence.
For the life of me I just could not see any British female politician sporting such an outfit, as they do seem to have a reputation for dull and frumpy clothing………a certain lacking of sartorial style.
Some may remember the French Minister (above) who caused quite a stir just after she had been appointed, and turned up for work looking like a model and dressed as only the French can do………..I think the word is “chic”………………..
