The Sun's political editor Tom Newton Dunn was accused of behaving as "Westminster's Gok Wan" today, after he took to Twitter to criticise the "bold" fashion choices of a female MP.

Labour MP Stella Creasy asked David Cameron about the particularly stark increase in unemployment for young women, and the support his Conservative colleague expressed for topless models to continue to feature on the Sun's Page 3, as the tabloid was "at least providing jobs for the girls."

The journalist appeared to take issue with the skirt the shadow business minister was wearing, visible when she stood to speak.

Boldly, @stellacreasy has just asked the PM to justify Page 3 - while wearing a bright blue PVC skirt in the Commons chamber.

@stellacreasy fully support ALL equal opportunity; yours to wear what you want - and p3 girls to express themselves as they want.

@tnewtondunn lovely tom -are some of your best friends women too? Don't you have an opinion on Cameron's trouser length? I must know! #pmq

The political editor has yet to share his views on the fashion choices of any of the other speakers in parliament today.
