Newlyweds Carrie and Boris Johnson greeted world leaders on the beach of Carbis Bay, Cornwall, at the start of the G7 Summit on Friday.

Carrie, 33, wore a pink Roksanda dress from the luxury fashion rental service My Wardrobe HQ, which she is using to rent her wardrobe throughout the summit, Women's Wear Daily reports.

The publication added that Carrie was also photographed wearing a mustard yellow Alice Eady dress from the rental service while in Cornwall, which rents from $11 (£8) per day or can be bought for $373 (£265).

Meanwhile, Boris, 56, took a one-hour flight from London to the event, where he will discuss "tackling climate change and preserving the planet's biodiversity" with world leaders. Later this year, the UK will also host the COP26 Climate Summit in Glasgow, Scotland.

On Wednesday, Boris shared a photograph of himself stepping off a plane after the short journey to Cornwall on Twitter, with the caption: "I've arrived in Cornwall for this year's @G7 where I'll be asking my fellow leaders to rise to the challenge of beating the pandemic and building back better, fairer and greener."

"It will be a busy and important Summit, and I can't wait to get started," he added.

The Labour Party's shadow environment secretary Luke Pollard criticized the Prime Minister's decision to fly 400 kilometers, calling it "plane stupid" in a tweet posted on Thursday.

"If you cared about the environment you probably shouldn't have got on a plane for a flight from London to Cornwall," Pollard wrote.

As Carrie and Boris welcomed figureheads such as Joe Biden, Angela Merkel, Justin Trudeau, Mario Draghi, Emanuel Macron, and Japan's Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga, Carrie wore the rented bright pink, pleated Zandra midi dress from Roksanda.

The dress retails at $1,967 (£1,395) but can be rented from $34 (£24) per day. At the time of writing, the My Wardrobe HQ website states that the dress has been sold, though it's not clear who purchased it or whether more than one dress is available to buy or rent.

Representatives for My Wardrobe HQ did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.

Carrie also used My Wardrobe HQ to rent a bridal gown for her intimate wedding ceremony with Boris two weeks ago. Insider's Samantha Grindell previously reported that the Christos Costarellos dress was worth $4,067 (£2,870), but Carrie paid $63 (£45) per day to rent it.

My Wardrobe HQ's founder Sacha Newall told The Guardian after the wedding that "Carrie has always rented from us" and that she is a "regular customer."
