Cover Loving: Hello Kitty For ELLE Taiwan

So Miss Piggy has had a few moments this year with flashy editorial spreads in the likes of InStyle and Flare magazine, well it seems that Hello Kitty has gone one better by gracing not one but two ELLE Taiwan covers to celebrate the mag’s 20th anniversary.

I have to admit I do have flash backs of having to go to Pontins as a child looking at this cover, where people dress up in random costumes, as a child I was always scared of them. I like the idea of these covers, I am a Hello Kitty fan and I am loving Hello Kitty’s pink feathered frock with matching signature bow, but it was when I saw the Suri Cruise inspired dotty number that I felt a bit weirded out. Is it just me?

I think it is the real life-sized Hello Kitty that makes me not get on board, I think I would have preferred a stylish illustrated cover. I wonder if the person inside the kitty gets recognition inside or maybe they requested against it!!!

ELLE must have been a little worried about the cover as well as the Hello Kitty ones don’t cut it for the newstand, they’ve gone for a more traditional approach and used a real-life model!!

So, which cover do you prefer?
