Aristotle and Plato both disagree on the definition of beauty, but there are some recurring themes. One example is the relationship between art and beauty. The classical conception of beauty considers aesthetics to be a matter of defining proportions and mathematical ratios. The ‘Canon’ by Polykleitos illustrates how to create a sculpture with the same aesthetic qualities as a Greek landscape. It shows that a landscape is as beautiful as an art object, regardless of its medium or artist.
Objects can be anything that appeals to the aesthetic senses, and beauty can be subjective. Some objects are more beautiful than others. ELLE magazine, for example, uses a futuristic design with metallic type and lurid neon green lines, and image-led sections. Unlike traditional beauty magazines, Dazed Beauty has a more diverse focus, covering everything from symmetry to the sexuality of maternal women to extreme body modification.
The aim of a magazine about beauty is to please the aesthetic senses. The aesthetics of a magazine can be judged by the symmetry of its pages. In addition to the symmetry of the pages, a magazine can be defined by colour. Some of the best-looking magazines are the ones that have a unique look. However, a magazine about beauty should also focus on the cultural context in which it is created. It should not only be about the products and artists, but also about the people who use them.
ELLE magazine has an internet-led and gore/horror-inspired look. Its mission is to promote the transformative power of beauty. Aside from the covers, Dazed covers the face. Other articles cover the art, fashion, and extreme body modification. There’s even an issue dedicated to the sexuality of mothers, video game culture, and knickknacks. But the goal is to bring the world together.
The ancients were also fascinated with beauty, and they often described it in ecstatic terms. The symmetry of a woman’s face and the way a man looks, the color of her eyes, the shape of her hair, and the way a woman dresses are all considered beautiful. A woman’s beauty should make her feel beautiful. It should make a woman feel confident. It is her best asset. She is a source of inspiration for all those who are interested in beauty.
The classics have a classical conception of beauty. In general, beauty is an ensemble of attributes that please the eyes. A symmetrical face is beautiful. The woman’s body is beautiful when the symmetry of her arms is perfect. Similarly, a woman’s hairstyle is symmetrical. But the classicals have been influenced by a lot of popular culture. But the moderns are fascinated by the art of women, who are able to express themselves without the need for a woman’s help.
