It Looks Like Caroline Kennedy Cosplayed As An Anime Character

But does she know? Dunno! But goodness, I hope she does.

Kennedy, of course, is the U.S. Ambassador to Japan, and as pointed out on 2ch, earlier this summer at a diplomatic event in Tokyo for American Independence Day, she wore this (photo via akasaka-teran):

It looks like an outfit worn by Hayato from beautiful dude series Uta no Prince-sama, a franchise that encompasses both anime and games.

The jacket with stars outfit appeared in Uta no Prince-sama five years or so back. Make no mistake, Hayato wore it first, because Kennedy didn't don the duds until this summer. 

Even though, Ambassador Kennedy might not know what Uta no Prince-sama is (though, damn, I hope she does!) or that she was dressed as Hayato, the person who put together that outfit must have. 

Or maybe the Ambassador knows exactly what she's doing.

    Based on the video I think she totally knows what she's doing, or at least her stylist.

    That video made my day. Seeing politicians and their staff acting like human beings unafraid of being silly and having fun is precious.
