How Julia Gillard hasn’t aged a day: Former prime minister, 60, reveals her stunning makeover as she goes on the campaign trail with Anthony Albanese

Julia Gillard debuted a glamorous new look when she appeared on the campaign trail with Anthony Albanese on Friday.

The 60-year-old former prime minister stepped out in Adelaide with perfectly coiffed light auburn hair, which was styled in a chic bob.

She appeared youthful, opting for natural-look makeup, and wore thick-framed black spectacles as she addressed the media.

Moving beyond her days of power suits in parliament, Julia showed off her new chic sense of style.

The retired politician wore a pair of leather pants, which she teamed with a scoop-neck black top.

She rounded out her ensemble with a charcoal grey blazer with black leather lapels, and accessorised with a gold pendant necklace.

Julia served as prime minister from 2010 to 2013, and her appearance bordered on conservative during her time in politics.

Although her hair was a brighter shade of red at the time, she sported a variety of frumpish haircuts and wore minimal makeup.

In terms of style, she favoured a series of buttoned-up looks in tones of grey, brown and white throughout her political career.

Julia famously delivered a blistering speech on misogyny in Australian politics during a session in parliament in October 2012.

She accused then opposition leader Tony Abbott of sexism, addressing the former Liberal prime minister throughout her 15-minute speech. 

‘I will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man. I will not. And the government will not be lectured about sexism and misogyny by this man. Not now, not ever,’ she said.
