“To land on your feet, fashion-wise, lose the heel.” Thus begins “The Cat and The Flat,” an online fashion spread featuring a different pairing of flats (the shoe not the apartment for you British readers) with a cat (or kitten) each day for the month of March.
The Fashion Times hit the nail on the head when they say, “There are few things (if any!) Internet users love more than cats. And the same goes for shoes among the fashion set.”
And really, what could be better than combining, furry felines with fashionable footwear? Not much in my book!
I particularly like the fact they use “regular” cats whose fame has not gone to their head (does that happen to the cats or rather the pet parents?!). They do feature one famous cat but I think her unique look makes her a bold choice for Vogue and I applaud them for it.
A few of the cats are even up for adoption, but sadly they don’t always show the entire cat (just a pair of hind legs in one cats), or fail to mention where the cat is up for adoption – a HUGE missed opportunity on Vogue’s end if you ask me.
Next time I’d love to see them use all adoptable cats, or all black cats, maybe even a few specially-abled ones, and provide all the contact information needed for potential applicants.
They could create a contest and have shelters and rescue groups sign-up to be included and engage Vogue readers to select the organizations – or particular cats – to be included in the layouts! I do hope someone at Vogue is reading this. If you have any connections do pass along!
Maybe I should do the next editorial, think they’ll go for that? Poor Rihanna (below), perhaps a “leg” man will fall for her.
Make sure to check out the editorial yourself to see all the cats (and flats) of March. Still ten new images to come!
