Former foreign minister Julie Bishop has seriously been living her absolute best life since she left her career in politics earlier this year.
We cannot get enough of her killer fashion moments and hilarious candour, and last night she just proved again why we adore her so much.
The 63-year-old stunned on the red carpet last night, alongside partner David Panton, at an event celebrating the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, sponsored by watch brand Omega.
And she was joined by another incredible woman, The Project host Lisa Wilkinson.

It seems the two women had an absolute whale of a time at the event, with Bishop "stealing" Lisa's phone to take a few cheeky candid selfies with David.
Never one to take herself too seriously, JBish looks incredible in the hilarious pics, looking absolutely radiant.
"And then @honjuliebishop steals your phone," Lisa posted on Instagram. Instagram
How cute is this selfie?! Instagram
In February, Bishop announced her resignation from parliament and her retirement from federal politics.
She revealed she would not recontest her seat of Curtin in Perth, where she has held the electorate since 1998, at the most recent federal election.
The former foreign minister had been sitting on the backbench following Malcolm Turnbull's ousting during the leadership spill last year.
