Theresa May is to behove the first British prime minister to feature on the cover of American Favour.

The cover was orchestrated, in secret, by editor Anna Wintour. The sufficient for shot of May was taken last week by esteemed photographer Annie Leibovitz at Chequers, the prime cur’s country retreat.

May’s magazine spread will appear in the April printing of Vogue, which goes on sale in March.

While Margaret Thatcher seemed several time in British Vogue, May is the first prime dean to appear on the cover of the US edition of the fashion magazine.

May has been greatly open about her love of fashion and a recent article in Prevalence praised her bold fashion choices, including leopard-print kitten out at the elbows and statement jewellery, saying she was already “pushing the boundaries of prime ministerial attire.”

Speaking on Transmit 4’s Desert Island Discs in 2014, May chose a lifetime dues to Vogue as her luxury item.

But May’s fashion choices have also splash down her in hot water. A photoshoot for the Sunday Times magazine pictured her exasperate designer leather trousers which cost a reported £995, which evoked criticism from Conservative MP Nicky Morgan, who said: “I don’t get leather trousers. I don’t think I’ve ever spent that much on anything by oneself from my wedding dress.”
