What could possibly be more fitting for an internationally renowned cultural icon than a high fashion magazine cover? Nothing! Which is why the good people at Elle Taiwan have rewarded Hello Kitty (that’s Miss Kitty White to you), with the cover of their 20th anniversary issue.
Consider the image you see below just another cultural accolade. Hello Kitty already has a Bank of America-themed checking account, a line of jewelry, several restaurants and countless other products named and modeled after her sickeningly adorable life and image, and this cover isn’t the first time she’s fronted a fashion glossy. Still, we think it’s an endearing way to give her a nod: the whole live-action aspect of it all makes it a little eerie, but we think the feathers and the rhinestone-studded pink booties more than make up for that.
Take a look at the image and let us know what you think: Chic or creepy?
