Two of the UK's leading female politicians have been pictured wearing the same outfit less than 24 hours apart.

Our own power-dressing First Minister Arlene Foster wore the stylish navy jacket on Monday, while Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon was spotted in the same one during engagements yesterday.

Mrs Foster's choice has been given top marks by fashion guru Cathy Martin. "It's great to see Arlene taking the lead in the style stakes, especially because Nicola was lauded for her simple and stylish dress sense during the elections last year," she said. "She's obviously taking her role very seriously. I know she is a committed politician but she'll also now be very aware that being in the spotlight means building an image."
