Last night, Canberra put on the glitz and the glam for the Midwinter Ball.
The political equivalent of the Logies, attendees put aside their policy views (and presumably also the fact that it was actually the last day of winter) and put on their black tie best to raise money for charity.
Foreign Affairs minister Julie Bishop cemented her place as undisputed queen of the night, wearing a black ballgown by Sydney designer Rachel Gilbert.

Simple, elegant and wearing a pair of statement earrings, Bishop gave us all a lesson in how to nail a formal dress code.
