Australia's New Prime Minister Julia Gillard's New Beauty Look

An Open Letter From Bella to Julia Gillard, Our First Female PM

Dear Jules,

It's OK for me to call you Jules, right? I just figure we'll be getting all close now, what with you being the new PM an' all, soon we'll be braiding each other's hair. Congrats BTW. Respect. Now I know these next coupla weeks are gonna be huge. Massive. Full on. Which is why you need to face them looking hot. The reaction we're going for is dang, girl. Think Michelle O and those toned arms. This could be you. Woot, woot!

So allow me to introduce your new BFF: The Bella Boo-Yah Beauty Plan. Not sayin' there's anything wrong with your current look or anything, but this is your moment. Your time to shine. You can do it Jules, because Bella's got your back.

STEP 1: Invest in a new style. The crop changed Linda Evangelista's and Agyness Deyn's career forever. The bangs have brought Sienna Miller back into our hearts. A lob will do the same for you. I'm thinking extensions, I'm thinking the weight needs to be taken out, I'm thinking your partner could really do this for you . . .

STEP 2: Your porcelain skin will win you votes. Everyone loves a sensible slip, slap, slopper. But it's all about the radiance. Think Cate Blanchett. Think SK-II.

Keep reading . . .STEP 3: Jen Hawkins refuses to leave the house without mascara. You should follow suit. Your next goal: Ralph's # 1 Sexiest Woman. And we're on Team Gillard.

STEP 4: Wow brows. They frame the face. Yours are an ace colour, but like me, they've fallen victim to an over-zealous plucker. You only have to look at Bambi's popularity to see that bigger is better. Pop along to Benefit and let the Bene babes sort you out. And keep the Benefit Instant Brow Pencil ($39) in your bag at all times. Life changer. Just sayin'.

STEP 5: Red she said. Look to Julianne Moore for the perfect red on red inspiration. Beaut-iful. But only for special occasions. Not school visits. You might get mistaken for a clown.

STEP 6: Keep yourself abreast of the latest Chanel "it" colour. This is more influential than any budget. And will endear you to women worldwide. FYI: The latest is Paradoxal.

STEP 7: Whatever this eyeshadow is, keep wearing it. LOVE.

STEP 8: Don't wear fragrance to work. Apparently some people don't like it and I know you kinda make the rules an' all but it always pays to be considerate.

STEP 9: Don't mess with the face. It's perfectly pretty as it is and we don't want another Carla sitch on our hands.

STEP 10: Keep smiling. It's what we love most about you. And it's the key to being beautiful.

Lots of love, Bella xxx
