Oh Minnie, You're So Fine*


It's not very often that a teen mag actually has a cover that makes me want to snatch it off whatever newsstand it was on (this despite the fact that it was published nearly five months ago and is in a language I don't comprehend- but it's still ElleGirl! Sigh..), but I really cannot help but lose my heart to that giant bow and Cecilia Mendez's sheer winsomeness. She's really quite adorable, a bit like a young Audrey Hepburn doing silly...and there aren't too many girls who'd actually pull off a Minnie Mouse tribute or bows on their heads without looking absolutely berserk - though I can name two. Three, if you include Katie Grand.

She looks a bit like the very young Nadia Comenici in a couple of those photos!

They stopped selling ElleGirl here in the UK :(
But this is a very cute cover.

Wow this actually works, and there's room for parody.

Cecilia Mendez has always the sweetest look.

i remember seeing this on tfs also and just adoring it. i think the pale pink background really adds a wonderfully soft feminine touch.

are you on tfs, too?

wow, Cecilia Mendez as a cover girl?

I'm so jealous of all these fantastic teen magazines coming out of the far east!
