Karl Lagerfeld for Shu Uemura: The Grand Launch

Monshu girl has landed! And she brought with her the most coveted collection this holiday season from the global brand, Shu Uemura.

The making of Monshu girl: As a fan of suits and ties, Karl Lagerfeld takes inspiration from the uniform of Japanese schoolgirls. In an interview with chicprofile.com, Lagerfeld mused: "They dress a little like me, even if this is more exaggerated."

 The grand launch was held at UMU Restaurant, Dusit Hotel, Makati.
