Georgina Burke wore a custom one-shoulder Lauren Ralph Lauren gown to the 2023 SI Swimsuit Issue red carpet premiere in New York City on May 18, and we’re still not over it. The Australian model shared a flashback moment of herself clad in the sequined, asymmetrical cut-out gown on Instagram on Thursday.

Burke paired her classy look with simple and elegant makeup, featuring feathered brows and a nude lip, while her hair was pulled back into a simple bun.

“Going to keep this on replay,” the Australian model wrote in her caption. “My custom @laurenralphlauren dress made to measure ♥️♥️♥️.”

“Pure Elegance ❤️,” one person commented.

“Amazing dress for an amazing girl! 😍,” another person added.

“Such an amazing dress!” someone else agreed.

A rookie in last year’s Swimsuit Issue, the Burke NYC founder returned to the publication after posing for Ben Watts in Puerto Rico. Burke is also the face of Lauren Ralph Lauren campaigns and has modeled the designer’s swimwear line for years.

“To be a Lauren Ralph Lauren woman is being powerfully strong and standing tall [and] really shows who I am as a woman,” Burke said in a behind-the-scenes clip with the brand. “This dress just honors that.”
