CHOUPETTE, Karl Lagerfeld’s famously pampered Siamese cat, has bagged herself her first beauty contract – with Shu Uemura. The holiday make-up collection will be called Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura – yes, that’s “Shu” pette, not “Chou” pette. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is the first time a household pet has ever teamed up with a global beauty brand, and the range will reportedly include such essentials as furry false lashes and ‘claw’ paint polishes.
Choupette first met Lagerfeld when Chanel model Baptiste Giabiconi needed the designer to take care for her during one Christmas – and Karl never returned her. Since then she has been in fashion shoots, has two personal maids and has traveled the world under the arm of Lagerfeld. Karl told Marie Claire UK, ““Miss Choupette loves Latin but hates opera,” he said. “But I only listen to music if she is awake. Her grooming routine is a lot of work. She has two maids because she doesn’t like to be alone. They do all the brushing – she’s beyond spoilt and sleeps on the back of my bed.” Oh, Choupette, what a lucky cat!
But that’s not it, Choupette Lagerfeld (yup), has also landed her debut book deal – Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat.
And just to make you jealous (as if you aren’t already), we’ve rounded up some pictures of her fabulous life from Choupette’s Instagram of 18,000 followers. Yeah, that’s right. She also has her own Twitter account, @ChoupettesDiary, boasting over 38,000 followers.
What do you think of Choupette’s new deal?
Let’s be friends…
