Samantha Cameron - the first lady of UK fashion

Monday February 21, 2011

As far as wardrobe dilemmas go, this was a real challenge.

On Friday, Samantha Cameron had the unenviable job on finding the perfect ensemble to host the creme de la creme of the British fashion industry.

But her look was spot on at the special Downing Street reception, held to kick start London Fashion Week.

With the best of British to choose from, the Prime Minister's wife lived up to her stylish credentials in a galaxy print skirt by super-cool Scottish designer Christopher Kane

Claudia Schiffer, a guest at the event, was pictured looking utlra-chic in one of his galaxy dresses just after giving birth last year.

Samantha complemented the skirt with silk top by rising star Emilia Wickstead and a Mawi necklace.

She'd also slipped on her favourite Zara shoes, "because they are so comfortable".

Also at the soirée were notable fashion faces including Vivienne Westwood,  royal hatmaker Philip Treacy and Burberry chief designer Christopher Bailey.
