It is the year of Hello Kitty, if Sanrio has anything to say about it; starring alongside Japanese model Ai Tominaga in the December 2014 issue of Vogue Japan, she is celebrating her 40th birthday, after all. Looking as good as ever, she is dressed in feminine frocks. The yin to Ai Tominaga's yang, Hello Kitty takes on a more innocent appearance.
Shot by photographer Tibi Clenci, Ai Tominaga and Hello Kitty pose in studio against a stark white backdrop. Both were styled by Rena Semba, but while Ai Tominaga in chic pieces from the likes of Balenciaga, Fendi and Lanvin, Hello Kitty is captured in her own wardrobe. Titled 'The Hello Kitty in My Closet,' the editorial is equal parts playful and fashionable, which is great for the holiday season.
