Choupette for Shu Uemura (WWD)
UPDATE: Are the contents of your makeup bag looking a little bedraggled and beaten post-summer holidays? We hear you. Alas, just in time for autumn, Choupette (Karl Lagerfeld’s legendary cat) has finally unveiled her new Shu Uemura collection- and has entitled the collection “Glamourpuss luxury.”
From eyeshadows in minky, feline colours to dramatic false eyelashes (complete with pink feathers and crystals, FYI) and even a cult Shu Uemura cleansing oil imprinted with a rather dashing portrait of super-cute Choupette, there’s plenty of beauty booty in the range- and we’re seriously excited.
11 July 2014: Shupette! Karl's Cat Has Bagged Her First Campaign

The world’s most enviable kitty, none other than Karl Largerfeld’s Choupette, has been chosen to front the new Shu Uemura holiday campaign with her very own range, “Shupette”. See what they've done there? Talk about a coup!
With a staggering 37,000 Twitter followers, Choupette has achieved a lot in her 3 cat years (21 human), having acted as both model and muse for Karl. So it’s only logical that Choupette is regularly inundated with modelling offers but a protective father like Karl made sure to wait until the right offer came along. Considering Karl has employed Shu Uemura make-up to hand-colour his illustrations for more than 20 years, it was a puurrrfect fit (sorry).

Full details of the collaboration are still under wraps, however WWD suggests that the Shupette range is likely to include furry false eyelashes, and includes a quote from the cat, calling herself “queen of catnaps” and “social media’s most wanted”. With her very own biography due out in September, "the cat that got the cream" has never felt more fitting.
