Choupette Chanel: The New Furry Face of Shu Uemura Cosmetics Collection

Move over, Whiskas. There’s a new kitty in town! Arguably the world’s most famous cat, Choupette, belonging to Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, has a new job for the new Shu Uemura Cosmetics Collection.

In true high fashion, Choupette will not be feasting on kitty treats, but will be the first tie-up between a beauty brand and a house pet.

The beauty brand, which has been responsible for Lagerfeld’s hand-coloured illustrations for more than 20 years, will fall under the pseudo/mash up name: Shupette.

The collection will include furry false eyelashes and a personalized note from the friendly feline, who currently has more than 37,000 followers on Twitter, where she describes herself as, “I’m a famous beauty who refuses to eat on the floor and my maids pamper my every need. I am Choupette Lagerfeld and I am a spoiled pussy.”

Lagerfeld is no stranger to the cosmetic company. The designer and the brand originally teamed up in 2012 for a limited-edition holiday collection.
