Liz Truss, the new British premier with the ghost of Margaret Thatcher in the closet

Like that time in 1987 not to disfigure in Russia with Raissa Gorbaciova, he had a fur hat made. Headdress with which her emulation was portrayed in 2022 in Moscow’s Red Square.

Since spending too much on clothes would have been unfortunate, Thatcher had an assistant who today we would call a stylist to talk Cynthia Crawford called «Crawfie», he used a few tricks to make the most of what he had. For each suit, skirts of two different lengths were commissioned (his reference atelier was Aquascutum), one suitable for the day’s commitments and one for the evening.
A question that Liz Truss hears less, given that like so many women known in her country, royals and otherwise, can mix tailoring with low-cost garments. Although she was spotted with clothes from Zara or Cosmuch prefers British brands with fairly popular prices like Winser, LK Bennett, Whistles, and The Fold.

Margaret Thatcher’s other style secret was that of matching the jackets with a series of “bibs” in which, under the jacket, they simulated different shirts. Liz Truss poses this problem much less. Under the fitted jackets, she puts nothing on leaving room for small portions of leather visible from the neckline.

In all of this, she denies referring to Thatcher. This summer she replied angrily to a journalist who asked her about the strange coincidences, like that shirt with the bow in the election campaign.
“It is rather frustrating that women in politics are always compared to Margaret Thatcher while their male colleagues are not compared to Ted Heath (conservative premiere from 1970 to 1974, ed)” he commented with a smile “I think it’s time to settle the score”. If there is a precise design, in short, she will never say it. The fact remains that the bow has worn well.
