karls-secret-livre-BD-Tiffany-Cooper1

As you’ve heard by now, Daddy Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with illustrator Tiffany Cooper for a collaborative collection,  which is all culminating in the book Karl’s Secrets. The book, is an “improvised biography seen through my eyes,” Cooper told WWD, and takes major events from Lagerfeld’s life and turns them into colorful, kitschy cartoons.

Choupette’s Diary: 10 Lessons I Learned Being InstaFamous

CL

In my short three years, I’ve learned a thing or two (or ten) from humans. Some good and others that have prepared me for the next nine years of life. The most important lessons have come from my internet fame, which was neither planned nor a publicity stunt contrary to popular belief. Since I’m not just beautiful but also wise, I will impart my wisdom on you.

Choupette’s Guide to Medi-Spas: Botox 101

CL_Botox

Humans are not as lucky at moi when it comes to having 9 lives to perfect their assets. The blogosphere is still abuzz with Kylie Jenner’s lip injections and Caitlyn Jenner’s complete transformation. While I’m not putting my maid Madame Françoise under the knife quite yet, I’ve noticed an increase in ladies (and ahem men) everywhere dabbling in the medi-spa pool. 

Choupette Takes Over CatCon LA

Choupette_CatCon

The cat is now officially out of the bag (Side Note: I’m so over this pun), LA Times announced my first speaking debut at CatCon LA. The first cat lover’s convention will invade The Reef in DTLA next month on Saturday, June 6th and Sunday, June 7th. Part expo, part symposium, CatCon LA showcases the world’s top cat-centric merchandise including furniture, art, toys and clothing for those of you who possess a great love of the feline, as well as conversations with some of the top cat experts in the world.

Choupette Approved: Beauty Buys

choupette Beauty Buys

My fur is flawless, my skin is smooth, and my eyes are as blue as the ocean. It’s no wonder I made more money on my two modeling campaigns last year than Cara. No harsh feelings dahhhling! Some of us just were blessed with natural beauty. For those of you not as lucky as moi, here are a few beauty buys to add to your daily routine.

Don’t worry, I didn’t animal test them on myself. My maid Madame Françoise was happy to be my test subject and she’s looking ravishing (if I do say so myself).

The Cat’s Out of the Bag: My Lucky Magazine Cover

LuckyMagazineC

If you follow moi on Instagram (which you obviously do), you’ve seen my Lucky Magazine special edition issue cover reveal! It was an honor to work with Eva Chen and the rest of the Lucky Magazine ladies and gents. With a dream team of stylists, make-up artists, hair stylists and my maids, I felt like part of the Lucky family. If we’re being frank though, the set got catty with he-who-should-not-be-named (AKA Grumpy Cat) when he threw a total Naomi fit when served tap water. Who could blame him though? Tap water! How basic.

Besides the minor H20 setback, getting to know Toast made me “appreciate” dogs more. Although, we have to work on finding the perfect lipstick shade to accentuate her best feature: her tongue!

Choupette’s Oscars 2015 Best Dressed List

As I sat sipping Veuve Clicquot, waiting to be dazzled by Hollywood starlets, I quickly grew disappointed (not to the level of Grumpy Cat but more McKayla is not impressed). With nominees like Marion Cotillard, Julianne Moore, and Reese Witherspoon I expected to be giving standing ovations. It’s the Academy Awards ladies! Jooj up the twins, don the Chopard diamonds, add a pinch of Harry Winston and a dash of Choo.

The new year is a time to relax, refresh and beautiful your body and mind. Contrary to popular belief, I don’t spend EVERY day jet-setting, eating caviar, and lounging.
