"Move over Theresa May, there's another fashionista in the Cabinet: Esther McVey makes a striking impression as she arrives at Downing Street for reshuffle," says The Mail. Well, allow me to differ.
"Chic in a grey Whistles dress with her long blonde hair perfectly coiffed"
says The Mail
The Mail were most impressed by McVey's outfit yesterday. "A thigh-flashing vision", it proclaimed, thereby giving the game away as to what exactly it was that had them reaching for the beta-blockers on the Mail's top floor. A sighting of thigh is all it takes to get them semi-excited these days. They probably haven't seen anything like that since the playing fields of prep school (Ruth Styles was just the cover).
The grey check dress by Vivienne Westwood (always good for a laugh) "clinched in her waist and emphasised her bust", apparently. In fact, it pulled around the waist so tightly that the rest of the skirt had difficulty covering Yesther's child-bearing hips. The jacket, by the same designer, was a different shade and had sleeves that were too long. Her attempts at pulling them up merely left them looking like pyjamas. Such a showy jacket would be best worn with a plain dress. I would have thought McVey knew how to do plain. But the fussy bust was cluttered with too many folds from the jacket. Then there was the completely mismatched clutch bag. However, it did all blend in rather well with the concrete frame around Dave's front door. And it got her a place at the high table.
