Koreans love their pets. Well, some like them for gastronomic
purposes (warning - the link is not for the weak of heart!) while
others, like these Korean celebrities, treat them as if they were their
little ones. To celebrate its 12th year of informing Korean women that
designer fashion extends beyond Burberry and its classic check design, Vogue
is publishing an edition that features the photos and stories of 200
Korean celebrities/fashionistas and their pets. Aw… how cute! I am sure
Anna Wintour has nothing to do with this. Bitch loves her fury little animals as long as they are dead and come with a designer label.
In addition to the print, the fashion magazine is going to organize
an exhibition showcasing the pictures of some of the celebrities with
their pets. Among them are Lee Hyori, Uhm Jung-Hwa, Kim Jung-Eun and members from the hit boy band Super Junior. Apparently the pictures were shot by some of Korea’s best known photographers. Here is an example of one (7-19-08_Vogue_Fashion_Pet1.jpg)
. Pet accessories from high end companies/designers like Tiffany and
Co, Marc Jacobs and Hermes will also be sold at the exhibit. Proceeds
from the sale will be donated to a veterinarian association.
Blogging this has inspired me to take a picture with my gerbil. I have to clean it first.
