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).
