Vogue Japan has added a new “Supermodel” to their roster. She’s the cutest & coolest 33 year old in Japan. However, this supermodel is not exactly your typical tall slender goddess. She has short legs & whiskers, and is Japan’s #1 selling animated feline. Vogue Japan will feature the cutie Hello Kitty in their June issue modelling the latest autumn & winter ’08 John Galliano for Dior designs. In Japan, Hello Kitty can be found on everything from lingerie to automobiles.
“Of course this is the first time the historic fashion house of Dior has had a cartoon character model their entire collection,” said an official at Conde Nast Japan, publishers of Vogue Nippon. “Japanese animation and characters have been a strong influence on the fashion world in the last few seasons, but Kitty is special,” the official said. “Fashion people all know her name and face and always say they love her. That’s why we at Vogue wanted to do something involving her.”
Hopefully, I can get my hands on a copy of the June Vogue issue. Will be interesting to see the famous feline fashion spread. Well all I can say is…MEOW!
