Move over Keyboard Cat and Grumpy Cat. There’s a new foxy kitty on the scene and she goes by the name of Choupette.

With blue eyes and white fur, the famous Siamese cat — owned by fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld — will front Shu Uemura’s holiday beauty campaign. The Japanese cosmetics brand will create a limited edition makeup collection, called Shupette by Karl Lagerfeld, inspired by the feline’s meow-worthy looks. According to WWD, the collection will likely include furry false lashes and other cat-themed accouterments.

The purr-fect fur model, who calls herself the “queen of catnaps,” has appeared in fashion shoots and has two personal maids. “She is a like a kept woman. She has a strong personality. She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food,” Lagerfeld said in a 2012 interview with WWD. “She even knows how to use an iPad.” Not surprisingly, the kitty is quite the social media darling (with 39,000 followers on Twitter), tweeting about everything from Anna Wintour being named editorial director of Conde Nast to her dismay that there are no open nail salons in NYC before 9 a.m.
