In this week’s bizarre news: Karl Lagerfeld’s pet Siamese cat, Choupette, has been chosen to be the official test animal new face of Japanese beauty brand, Shu Uemura’s holiday campaign. The collection, labeled Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura, is speculated to include items like furry eyelashes and—more than likely—various products that promise the perfect cat-eye for all the cat-loving ladies in your life. This marks the second collaboration between the Chanel Creative Director and the make-up brand, following a successful holiday 2012 collection that featured Lagerfeld’s design and illustrations. Lagerfeld, who photographed both partnerships, first laid eyes on his furry companion when he was asked to cat sit the animal for Christmas and never returned her afterwards. Now with two maids, a twitter account with upwards of 30 thousand followers, and an upcoming book, Choupette is poised to take the world by storm and if you’re a model, your job too.
