Dasha Zhukova casts Britney Spears for POP's Autumn '10 cover
For the Autumn '10 issue of POP Dasha Zhukova cast an unlikely cover girl, one Britney Spears. Collaborating with Takashi Murakami, Britney has been transformed into a manga character. She was photographed by Todd Cole and appears wearing a wedding veil, schoolgirl backpack and surrounded by Hello Kitty animation. Britney landed not one but two covers for POP. Discussing the reason for choosing Brit, Dasha said: "She's feminine, sassy, strong-willed, determined: all the things a great POP icon should be. Couple that with some Japanese swimsuits and a Rodarte wedding gown and I think she is pretty much POP personified!"
