Beauty Look for Julia Gillard, Australia's First Elected Female Prime Minister

An Open Letter to Julia Gillard, Our First Elected Female PM

Dear Jules,

Phew, what a past coupla weeks you've had, with that hung parliament an' all. And congrats! But I hate to tell you that it ain't getting any easier. Now I know we discussed these makeover plans a while ago when you first rose to PM rank, but these next few weeks are gonna be huge. Massive. Full on. Which is why you need to face them looking hot. And you'll probably go down in the history books, meaning you want to look the best you possibly could. Right? Right.

So allow me to re-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, and Cate Blanchett and Michelle Williams are still loving theirs. Or perhaps a lob? 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: I bet the past few weeks haven't been friendly to your skin, with all the travelling and meeting people and campaigning. 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.

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
