The world is awash with images, pervasive and deeply layered. The relationship between images and reality has been examined in exhausting detail over the centuries by the likes of Plato to Baudrillard and for good reason: to make sense of the world. Heady stuff, surely, but one thing is certain, ours is a world of images and a good many of them are quite beautiful. Take, for example, the June 2014 issue of Tatler that features an excellent editorial with Gaby Loader photographed by Kate Davis-Macleod. The 10-page story titled “Pretty as a Picture” makes literal this interplay of reality with pictures by projecting images, colorful and artful, over Gaby. Wearing graphic pieces from Miu Miu, Chanel, Prada, Christopher Kane, and more, Gaby shows the colorful side of the Spring 2014 collections. This dazzling spectacle of Gaby Loader’s is sure to make philosophers of many, but aesthetes of us all.
