Meet Karl’s “Mon Shu Girl,” Plus Two Decades Of Lagerfeld’s Ladies

October 11, 2012 5:47 pm

Just two weeks after his Spring 2013 Chanel show, Karl Lagerfeld is at the helm of yet another debut: a makeup collaboration with legendary Japanese cosmetics company Shu Uemura. After it was revealed that Lagerfeld had been using the brand’s richly hued eye shadows, and them alone, to color his sketches, the two boldfaced names have linked up in the name of beauty. The resulting 17-piece line, which includes lip colors, false eyelashes (one of which is made from fabric), a slew of nail polishes sold with corresponding nail stickers, plus a new take on the classic Shu lash curler, is a fusion of Japanese playfulness and Parisian chic. At the center of it all is Mon Shu Girl, the manga-esque character Lagerfeld sweetly sketched to symbolize the line’s irreverent “Eastern, perfect, mysterious, modern” aesthetic. She graces all of the packaging and can be seen zipping about the globe on a tube of red lipstick in a promotional video (also created by Lagerfeld). Mon Shu is nothing short of an original, although she’s certainly not the first woman to inspire Lagerfeld. Here, we gathered a collection of style icons, actresses, models, and one very special feline, who, in their prime, have all played muse to the the man behind the makeup.

The Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura collection will be available from October 22 at www.shuuemura-usa.com.
