It’s always interesting to see how different people interpret the same piece of clothing. It’s even more interesting when you see the professionals do it. Here, the Therese Rawsthorne “Cyclonic” dress appears in recent editorials by Russh and Vogue magazines. In the Russh editorial (styled by Natalie Shukur) the look is pared down, with barely an accessory in sight, and the dress is the main focus of the shot. In the Vogue editorial (styled by Victoria Collision) the dress is glitzed up with fanciful shoes and statement necklaces, channeling a look reminiscent of the 80s. Both outfits channel different aesthetics, and while I do genuinely like both ensembles, my favourite has to be the Russh version. I’m ultimately drawn to the simplicity of the outfit, and the dreamy mood (for lack of a better phrase) evoked by the photography.
