Yet another "Seeing Double" post. Now I'm sure many of you will have seen this image of Jenny Boyd, looking the adorable sixties dolly she was, posing in a red London telephone booth before. The picture was taken in 1965, when London boutiques were then overflowing with shortened hemlines and bright, and playful designs to reflect the changing face and place of youths in society. Here is an image of another model wearing the same dress as Jenny and striking a different but very sophisticated pose. The dress is called the "Sunburst" dress, and was created by designer duo Foale and Tuffin. It was made of crepe wool and featured a matching tie belt as can be seen in the images. There are certainly no questions asked as to why it was titled as so. The gorgeous colours and sloping lines like rays from the sun speak for themselves.
Which model do you think wore the dress better?
Both simply look stunning, but I must say I prefer Jenny's modelling of the dress as I think it better encapsulates the idea of the playful and youthful nature of fashion at the time.
