I don't know who you think is the most stylish bride of 2017, and quite frankly, I don't care.

Sorry, Pippa.

Sorry, Pippa.

Ladies and gents, the actual winner has been located, and she is none other than this 93-year-old lady in red, Sylvia Martin.

Martin went shopping for her wedding dress at Birdsnest, a store in in Australia, where she tried on four absolutely stunning looks. To help her pick one, the store posted the four outfits on its Facebook page and asked the public to weigh in.

You, laying eyes on her flawlessness for the first time.

Now, let's take a closer look at all of Martin's ensembles. First up is the Rita dress, a timeless, dressy/casual shift dress in a lovely cranberry color.

Cranberry is quite obviously her color.

Cranberry is quite obviously her color.

Next up is this printed floral number, which Martin is absolutely glowing in.

And then, of course, there's this elegant and sophisticated lace dress.

And last but not least is this cape-style dress, but can we talk about how Martin is absolutely nailing her poses and angles?!?!?!

In the Facebook post, Birdsnest said Martin is marrying her longtime friend Frank in July. The two live together in a retirement village, and Frank has asked her to marry him "many times."

"Sylvia has always refused, thinking that to take a new surname would be disrespectful to her deceased husband," the post said. "A year ago, Sylvia took ill and moved to Canberra to be near her family, and Frank thought all hope was lost. When Sylvia recovered, she found Frank, who was living in Adelaide, and convinced him to move to Canberra to be with her. Frank arrived a couple of months ago and again asked Sylvia to marry him. Sylvia had learned that you can keep your own surname when you marry, and so said yes."

Love 👏 isn't 👏 dead 👏 y'all.
