Shu Uemura’s Next Star = Karl Lagerfeld’s Kitty
How’s this for purr-fectly intriguing? Karl Lagerfeld‘s Siamese cat Choupette is about to star in her very own beauty campaign. The designer has already completed shooting the images for Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura, a collection inspired by his beloved pet and due for release in Fall 2014. The special collection is by no means Choupette’s ticket to fame, though. Her Twitter account @ChoupettesDiary already has quite a following and exudes her big personality that Lagerfeld has described. In a previous interview, he shared, “I thought she was too cute. She is like a kept woman. She has a strong personality. She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food.”
While it may sound unconventional to have a cat front a beauty line, it’s not entirely surprising (plus, it’s Karl Lagerfeld‘s cat). We’re thinking of the many feline influences on beauty and fashion, from the oh-so-classic cat eye to the comeback that leopard print has seen in recent years. We can’t wait to see what will be offered in this collection.
