That is the glamorous college gf whom became the spouse of our freshly appointed Uk Prime Minister, Boris Johnson?
Boris Johnson and Allegra Mostyn-Owen at Oxford in 1986
Allegra Mostyn-Owen had been Boris Johnson’s university gf along with his wife that is first years back. The set had been an element of the ‘bright young things’ of this Oxford university elite, a golden, glossy, head-turning act that is double.
Allegra, the Italian for ‘joyful’ or ‘lively’, a term which is used to annotate music that is uplifting ended up being allegedly ‘not’ hawaii she was at following (and during) her wedding to Johnson. A union that lasted six years, between 1987 and 1993, if the couple eventually divorced.
The constant Mail described the wedding ‘as a cross between Los Angeles Dolce Vita and Brideshead Revisited’. Allegra had been the daughter that is captivating of historian and Christie’s auction household Chairman, the millionaire William Mostyn-Owen and his Italian journalist spouse, Gaia Servadio. Your family seat had been Woodhouse, an estate that is grade-ii-listed Shropshire. Your house ended up being their wedding place – when Allegra wove plants through her locks and Johnson arrived with neither pants nor shoes.

An Oxford contemporary told the Mail that, ‘Allegra had most of the Botticelli that is italian angel: blond and ethereal. That quality made her seem untouchable to your rest of us – which will be what Boris might have desired as being a trophy.’
In the event that you rewind returning to the time of the conference, Johnson had been the Old Etonian President of this Union who had previously been awarded the Brackenbury Scholarship of Balliol for scholastic quality – and Allegra had been their mythological reward.
Allegra would reportedly later think about the time of the wedding, ‘the end of the relationship as opposed to the start.’
