Kitty Couture

The high fashioning of toys continues! For the June issue of Vogue Nippon, which hits stands tomorrow, Hello Kitty - practically the nation's mascot - gets the John Galliano treatment, appearing in a spread with the designer while modeling his latest fall and winter lines.

"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. "Fashion people all know [Hello Kitty's] name and face and always say they love her. That's why we at Vogue wanted to do something involving her."
