Ashkata Murty has perfected the art of effortless dressing, evidenced by her bold and beautiful business-casual attire worn in Shukkeien Gardens in Hiroshima on Sunday.
The UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and his wife Ashkata were in Japan for the G7 Leaders’Summit this weekend, during which the billionaire heiress enjoyed a tour by Yuko Kishida, the wife of the Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida.
Ashkata, 43, was feeling fruity as she stepped out in a striking colour-blocked ensemble consisting of a sunshine-yellow Lisou blouse emblazoned with kitsch cherry motifs.
Her retro puff-sleeved ‘Betty’ shirt was elevated with cherry-red fitted trousers and tangerine heels, which the businesswoman complemented with a coral crossbody handbag.
The glamorous mother-of-two wore her raven hair in a bouncy blowdry, adding charming gold stud earrings to complete her statement glamour.
It’s not the first time the Prime Minister’s wife has turned heads with her immaculate sense of style, having climbed the ranks of the style stakes with her bright wardrobe and flattering tailored outfits.
The heiress’ fashion at King Charles’ coronation earlier this month was a talking point amongst fans as she donned a stunning Claire Mischevani ‘Alexandra’ dress.
Complete with romantic puff sleeves, a waist-cinching belt and silhouette-enhancing A-line skirt, Ashkata paired her modern Cinderella dress with contrasting black accessories.
Who is Rishi Sunak’s wife?
An accomplished academic, having undertaken an MBA at Stanford University, Ashkata Murthy is also a fashion lover at heart.
She abandoned a career in finance and marketing to launch her now-defunct, eponymous clothing label Akshata back in 2011. It was at Standford that Ashkata met her husband-to-be, Rishi.

According to Tatler, the Prime Minister switched classes just to get to know the girl “with glossy black hair tumbling everywhere” better. The couple tied the knot in August 2009.
Speaking of her eclectic sense of style, Ashkata previously told Vogue India: “It’s as cool to hang an original Gond painting in a New York penthouse as it is to own a creation by an established artist. I apply that same logic to clothing: Why not wear a hip summer frock inspired by cave paintings in India and team it with a Marc Jacobs scarf?”
