Even as a natural blonde, bi-monthly coloring is a must for my ashy roots. After my regular visits to the Serge Normant at John Frieda Salon in Chelsea, is top of mind. When you spend the money and time on color treatments, maintaining that long-lasting vibrancy is a priority. With over thirteen years of color care product testing under my belt, I can recommend these products with confidence!

Choupette’s Diary: A Chic Guide To Pampering with Shu Uemura

Cs2

In case you don’t feel good about yourself and your career success, take a moment to wallow in the fact the a feline has landed her own beauty collaboration. Don’t fret though dahhhlings! I will take those worry lines and turn you into the blue eyed beauty I am.

Daddy Karl Lagerfeld has a longstanding relationship with the Japanese makeup brand, Shu Uemura—he uses their cosmetics to color in his fashion sketches and collaborated on a holiday collection with them in 2012. Thus, it’s no surprise he wanted moi in on the action!

CS

While the collaboration was announced in July, the images for the campaign have just now arrived *cue the annoying human squeels of excitement*. The “Shupette” line features eyeshadows in minky, feline colours, crystal false lashes, the cult Shu Uemura cleansing oil and more. The packaging is complete with original drawings of me from Daddy –  who doesn’t want to see my face every morning on their boudoir?

The “Glamourpuss luxury” will launch in time for the holiday season so get on Santa’s not-so-naughty list early!

Choupette’s Diary: A Chic Guide To Being Moi

Choupette's book

By now you’ve heard the news, I have a book releasing in September entitled Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat.” The long-awaited publication will include tips on diet, beauty, healthcare, and fashion, as well as insight into my secret loves and hates (more hates than loves).

Another one bites the dust: So Long Shu Uemura

Get your Shu Uemura favorites (in store) while you can, L’Oreal has decided to close down the U.S. operations for the brand.  While I will miss seeing their products at Barneys and Sephora, at least they will continue to be available on the Shu Uemura website.  Phew! Considering every eyelash enthusiast swears by their curlers.  Plus, I would hate to have to travel oversees just to buy their cleansing oil.  Or would I?

So long Shu Uemura, your retail presence will be missed!

Ready-To-Bare it ALL: Backstage at Vivienne Tam Spring 2010 Collection

IMG_0310

On Saturday, September 12th, Gina Brooke, Artistic Director of Shu Uemura, was kind enough to extend an invitation to go backstage and preview the look for Vivienne Tam’s Spring 2010 runway collection.  Considering this was the last year fashion week would be held at Bryant Park (sniff, sniff), I was anxious to get to the tents.

IMG_0311

The inspiration for the show was nature.  Gina Brooks did an exceptional job embodying the theme and creating a clean, natural face with soft pink cheeks and dramatic lashes that appeared like butterfly wings (using the Shu Uemura Farfallina False Eyelashes on both the top and bottom lash line).

“Butterflies were seen everywhere in Vivienne’s collection which was inspired by freedom, life and the 1960’s,” said Brooke. “It was only natural to have these beautiful, wing-like lashes flank the models’ eyes to resemble one of earth’s most gorgeous creatures.”

After my interview, I had a little time to kill until the show started.  Fortunately, I ran into a friend who invited me to the W Hotels VIP Backstage Lounge, sponsored by Veuve Clicquot.  I had me a drink (or two) while mingling with some of fashion’s finest.

Showtime! I filed into the crowd excited for Vivienne Tam’s collection and especially thrilled to see the premiere of her latest collaboration with HP for their digital clutch.  A beauty bloggers dream! So compact and stylish, I want it!  But like Vivienne Tam’s collection, this stunning piece of machinery is not expected to launch until Spring 2010.

A stunning show it was, but see for yourself.  Click HERE for complete image coverage of Vivienne Tam’s Spring 2010 Collection.
