Modelling AlienationThese themes were eloquently invoked in a series of photographs by Tim Walker for Vogue Italia, which showed the model being delivered to a warehouse as if she were an industrial product. Immaculately dressed in each shot, in couture evening gowns fit for a princess by Gaultier, Versace, Valentino and the like, she is nevertheless styled to look like a scaled-up doll or toy. Variously transported on pallets and fork-lift trucks, mimicking the packaging of Barbie and other dolls, she comes bubble-packed, shielded in a pre-moulded plastic form, surrounded by Styrofoam balls or wrapped in cling-film.
