The best fashion moments at G7 summits, past and present

This week, world leaders gathered for the 47th annual G7 summit at the Cornish resort of Carbis Bay.

The group of seven, which includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US, will discuss global recovery from the pandemic, and how to improve the global health system.

Other areas on the agenda include trade and climate change, with leaders inviting CEOs from nine global companies to discuss ways to improve sustainability in their industries.

As the events get underway, we’ve collated our favourite fashion moments from this year’s summit, and summits of the past.

Carrie Johnson, 2021

Boris Johnson’s new wife, Carrie, is also in attendance for the first time. Over the course of the weekend, she has been seen in a variety of different looks from fashion rental service, My Wardrobe HQ.
