Loving Desdemona’s look here.
textbook:

i always felt like desdemona of shakespeare’s othello was helpless. like a lot of shakespearean damsels, she was the pawn of schemes around her. she up and left venice to elope and accompany othello in his travels. as the plot unfolds we see that she is made to look like a two timing hussie with cassio by iago. all this is done because iago feels cassio was wrongly promoted over him by othello. confused? no worries…it’s shakespeare. anyway, upon duping othello into thinking cassio and desdemona were knocking boots, othello promises iago a promotion if he kills cassio. iago in turn convinces roderigo, who is in love with desdemona to kill cassio. things start getting crazy, othello smothers desdemona, iago kills roderigo, iago kills emilia, othello kills himself and then iago gets arrested. that’s a super bare bones version but as you can see, desdemona was pretty helpless…so she’d probably wear flowy dresses, right?1: eloping with othello: dress by alberta feretti, shoes by valentino2: i lost my handkerchief: dress by christian dior, shoes by stella mccartney3: othello is being so mean: dress by giambattista valli, shoes by azzaro
