Ever since Theresa May became the U.K.’s prime minister in July, there has been constant scrutiny of her fashion choices — particularly her affinity for flashy footwear.
On Tuesday, May appeared on British TV program “Good Morning Britain.” When asked about the criticism of her shoes and whether she think it’s sexist, May said, “It is interesting that people focus on my shoes. I don’t think they focus on Philip Hammond’s or Boris Johnson’s in quite the same way,” referring to two of Britain’s leading male politicians.
“But look, do I regret the fact that people talk about my shoes? Hey, it gives me an excuse to go buy new shoes.”
This week, May is at the Conservative Party Conference in Birmingham, England, where she wore a deep plum dress and block-heel pumps with a sparkly heel and velvet bow.
