Pregnant Carrie Johnson covered her baby bump in a £350 red dress from a sustainable British brand as she arrived hand-in-hand with husband Boris ahead of his Tory conference speech today.
The 33-year-old, who is expecting her second child with the Prime Minister, brought a splash of color to the Manchester Central Convention Complex in the flowing dress from independent label Cabbages & Roses.
The dress, with ruffles at the collar and over the bodice, drapes over Mrs Johnson’s blossoming baby belly.
Typically understated, Carrie kept her accessories simple and paired the scarlet dress with two silver necklaces and a pair of black patent leather boots from Jigsaw.
Her loose blonde locks were styled in loose waves and looked particularly voluminous – perhaps due to the increased thickness women experience during pregnancy.

It continues her patriotic dressing, after her decision to wear red, white and blue yesterday.
Carrie first stepped out in a £59.99 red blazer and a £27.99 white collared shirt with a bow, both from Zara, before changing into a blue flowy dress for her first Tory conference speech.
Boris’s pregnant wife expressed her pride at steps like an equal marriage brought by conservative leaders as she addressed a Pride reception in Manchester.
It is believed to be the first speech by a prime minister’s wife at a conference.
With Mr Johnson and his sister Rachel in the audience, she said it was “blatantly untrue… that being LGBT+ and being a Tory are somehow incompatible.”

The prime minister has been criticized in the past for comments he made when he was a newspaper columnist, including referring to gay men as ‘boys in tank tops’.
But Ms Johnson told the crowded crowd: ‘Whether you’re LGBT+ or an ally like me, we’re all committed to equality and acceptance for everyone, whoever you are and who you love.
“There are still people telling me that being LGBT+ and being a Tory are somehow incompatible, well, if we look around tonight, we can see that that’s clearly not true.
“Many of you here tonight have helped to play a part in our party’s journey on gay rights and we can now say with great pride that it was a Conservative Prime Minister who advocated an equal marriage in England and Wales.” has established.

“I want you all to know that we now have a Prime Minister who is fully committed to accepting those benefits and extending them further.”
As a backbencher, Boris broke the whip to vote to repeal Section 28, as Mayor of London he supported gay marriage, as Foreign Secretary he lifted the ban on British embassies abroad flying the pride flag and as Prime Minister he has the great Nick Herbert as the UK’s first special envoy for LGBT rights. Last year he extended same-sex marriage to Northern Ireland.’
Then she added: “Boris also wanted me to remind you that as mayor he led the Pride parade in a rather attractive pink Stetson, which I think we should encourage him to do again.
