Hello Kitty 'Elle Taiwan' Cover: Cute Or Creepy?

Hello Kitty In Couture: Cute Or Creepy?

Sanrio's head honcho is cute-ifying some fashion mag covers this month.

A life-size Hello Kitty (with feet and everything!) graces the cover of Elle Taiwan this month, posing in fancy couture for two different covers in honor of the publication's 20th anniversary.

To us, these jumbo kitties seem a little ... creepy? We asked one of our fashion friends who lives in Taiwan to weigh in:

Well, it's not that weird for us, because we already have like, a Hello Kitty hospital, Hello Kitty airplanes, Hello Kitty TVs and toasters and we have Hello Kitty hotels and hotels with Hello Kitty suite. The only thing about it that strikes me as weird is that Elle is more...highbrow, whereas the Hello Kitty hotels, etc., in Taiwan are seen as gimmicky. So I'm not sure how that will go over.
