Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld: Mon Shu

Mon Shu is Fashion Kaiser Karl Lagerfeld‘s latest creation. Mon Shu is the result of Karl Lagerfeld’s recent collaboration with Cosmetic brand Shu Uemura. Believe it or not, Karl did say that he uses Shu Uemura cosmetics for his sketches  “because other manufacturers do not offer such beautiful colors.”

The above video show’s how Mon Shu was born, and includes a sneak peek at the collaboration. It looks like there’ll be several shadows, at least one lipstick, blush, liner(?), face powders, blush, and bronzer (maybe.)

I’m über excited for this collection because I missed out on Karl Lagerfeld x Sephora last year, so hopefully, I can score some goodies this year!

So this leaves me with the question: Should I break out some red contacts for Karl Lagerfeld x Shu Uemura to have a Mon Shu inspired look?



Karl, the 80’s Called.

And they want their clothes back. Like seriously, dude. What is this tom-foolery? It looks like something you’d find on the sale rack at Frederick’s. No, seriously. This is like a flashback to the era of innerwear-is-outerwear,  and not in a good way. I mean, as someone who enjoys garterbelts, corsets, and burlesque, this is just not cutting it. It’s like someone decided to don their cheapest negligée out to the supermarket (or worse, a red carpet event) with arm warmers(!!!!!! WTF.) The belt is not making it any better either. I can understand the lurex tights, as the show involved them. And the fabric, THE FABRIC!!!!!!! It looks shoddy and cheap, like someone fell asleep while making this.

Okay, folks, do you love it, hate it? Talk about it in the comments below~

Suddenly, there was Snoop Dogg and Karl Lagerfeld

Tourism Video much?

So I was reading Fashionista today, and this popped up.

I decided to watch it, for the sake of seeing Karl Lagerfeld (who will now be known as the Kaiser), and I ended up having this sort of look : O.o

It vaguely reminded me of one of those videos sponsored by the country to promote tourism, like this 2PM one:

Maybe I should make a tourism video with a catchy theme song?

But who wants to watch a video about a smallish east coast town anyway?
