0121 The Cat's Meow

Jun 01, 2012, 05:07 PM, Matsudo, Chiba Prefecture, Japan

As a rule, we expect to find Hello Kitty on fashion not in it. Well, VogueNippon aims to change all that. How? By making this pop culture icon – stubby legs and square body notwithstanding – into a runway model. In the April 26th issue of the glamour mag, Hello Kitty gets a makeover, shedding her no-name cutesy outfits for ensembles from the House of Dior. The little cat will also enjoy a shopping spree in Paris. And for those of you who were wondering: yes, it is the first time Dior has used a cartoon character to model their collection. But then again we can expect no less from a kitty that’s always been the cat’s meow. #ceas #hacker #japan #tsutsui
