Watch This Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura Collection Video Out-Cute Choupette

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Is Karl getting soft on us? First, he lets his kitten, Choupette, steal his heart and now he's "kreated" a seriously cute mascot for the Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura cosmetics capsule. Totally soft, but Mon Shu Girl is so darn sweet that we'll let it slide.

The teaser's concept plays off Karl's own admission back in 2006 that he used the brand's eye shadows while sketching. Now he's giving back by designing the "Noël 2012" line, which you can catch a glimpse of in Mon Shu's "birth video" after the jump (thankfully not what it sounds like).
