Cutest Beauty Collaboration Ever? – Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat Gets A Cosmetics Line

shupette

Choupette Lagerfeld–designer Karl Lagerfeld’s Siamese cat, just landed a major modeling deal. Choupette will now be the face and inspiration of Shu Uemura’s holiday beauty campaign.

Under the auspices of Japanese cosmetics line Shu Uemura, Choupette will have her own capsule cosmetics collection, cleverly named “Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemara.” The “Shu” refers to Shu Uemara and “pette” to the cat. “Shupette” is the first admixture of a beauty brand name and a house pet, according to WWD.

Take Care of Yourself in Your Relationship

Dating-Speak” ™ ©2014: Our Lives of Style authority–Laura Pugliese shares must-know dating “Do’s and Don’ts” that will help you find success in your relationships:

Lives of Style: My boyfriend decided to get inebriated during a barbecue–and while I’m fine if he has a few drinks, I didn’t relish trying to get him to the car and having to be the designated driver. Thank God I didn’t consume a lot of alcohol at the party, because I wasn’t expecting to drive. He doesn’t drink very much normally–although, as this is our first summer together, I don’t have a long history with him. Nevertheless, it was a real turn-off. Should I just let it go and watch his behavior for the rest of the summer? Or should I mention something to him?

Laura: I think it’s a good idea to have a talk with him about it before it happens again for a couple of reasons. Since you haven’t said anything he may not think it would be a problem for you if he wants to drink more heavily in the future at another function, and faced with it spontaneously again you may feel very angry and become completely turned off. Also, what if you happened to drink a bit more and didn’t feel comfortable driving? It’s dangerous to drive while intoxicated, and it also happens to be illegal.

With that in mind you can say, “I want to talk with you about something that felt uncomfortable to me when we went to (insert name) barbecue. Is now a good time?” Wait for him to say, “Yes,” then you can say, “You had every right to drink as much as you want, and I don’t think you were trying to do anything deliberately to cause me discomfort. However I have realized that it didn’t feel good to me to unexpectedly have to help you to the car and then drive. Thankfully I didn’t drink very much, and I was able to drive. It would feel best to me if we can make an agreement to check in with each other in the future if either one of us wants to indulge and have an extra drink or two. What are your thoughts about what I am sharing with you, and what do you think about us making that agreement?”

Head Over Heels for Christian Louboutin’s New Nail Varnish

Louboutin shoes are easily one of the world’s most coveted–and identifiable, thanks to the contrasting, bright red lacquered hue on the bottom of the shoe.

Commonly called “sammy red-bottoms,” with a red-bottom colour code registered by Louboutin as Pantone colour 18-1663 TPX, the designer’s red soled shoes were born twenty-two years ago, when Christian Louboutin took a bottle of nail varnish and brought life to what he otherwise felt was an uninteresting shoe.
