Julie Bishop is known for her many, many fashion-forward looks.
Even when she was in her political hey-day, we were treated to a wardrobe-extravaganza of bold, bright and downright sparkly ensembles - and yes, that included her sitting days in parliament.
So fast-forward to today, it's come as an even greater thrill to see the stylish 64-year-old don what we can only describe as her boldest outfit to date.
And yes, she still isn't letting any dress wear her - even the brightest frock of them all.
In a stunning photoshoot with the West Australian, Julie shared a series of snaps from the day featuring the most incredibly beautiful bright pink dress.
As explained in the accompanying article, the dress in question was worn as Australia marks Frocktober, a fundraising drive for ovarian cancer research by OCRF Australia.

In the caption, Julie explained: "Frocking up for #Frocktober2020 raising funds for ovarian cancer research @ocrf."
She continued: "The Pink Frock designed @jaimiesortino will be auctioned online details to follow. What a stunning creative team."
Of course, Julie's fans and fellows were clearly impressed with the showstopping look.
"You're so fabulous," British socialite Emma Thynn commented.
Designer Jasmine Stefanovic also added her two cents, writing "stunning," to the former Foreign Minister.
Another fan simply wrote: "Omg I love her, what a queen."
There's no arguing with that.

Julie's new photoshoot was for a truly worthy cause.
Frocktober invites women from across Australia to "channel their creative flair through their favourite frocks, all while raising urgently-needed funds for the OCRF's innovative research projects that help to shine a light on ovarian cancer," the website states.
The aim is to raise funds, and start conversations around the lack of early detection for ovarian cancer, and to propel research forward to rectify this.
