Karl Lagerfeld has a cat named Choupette. Choupette currently has over 40,000 Twitter followers. Choupette's Twitter bio reads: "I am Choupette Lagerfeld and I am @KarlLagerfeld's spoiled pussy." This winter, Choupette will be the face of Shu Uemura's holiday collection. I hate Choupette.
Admittedly, I'm a bit biased because I do not like any cats. They make me sneeze and are shady and rude and they think they're better than me even though I have thumbs. But seriously, this just seems like a lame way for Karl to get another check because it's not like Chanel doesn't have its own makeup.
I supposed we can call this a collaboration between the brand and Choupette, although, logic and critical thinking would suggest otherwise. The collection is called—wait for it—Shupette and Choupette's face will grace the packaging of the assorted makeup products. Call me crazy, but when I see a hairy white cat, I don't think "I want to put that on my face." (Double entendre not intended you clever rascals!)
Seriously though Gisele wasn't free? Did they try calling Jourdan Dunn? Was this damn cat really the best option? To make matters worse, you will also have the opportunity to spend money that you worked hard for on furry eyelash extensions that I'm sure will go perfectly with your holiday cocktail dresses.
WHATEVER, YOU FASHION-Y FASHION PEOPLE. I'm not an edgy cat lover with money to burn so, yeah, I don't "get it." However, if you're one of the people who's world was turned upside down by the revelation that Hello Kitty isn't even a cat, this could be a nice consolation prize.
