No other animal is as fashion-friendly as the feline, and this is a fact that cannot be refuted (heck, I wear my cat ALL the time.) Kitties are affected little weirdos with slender legs and flirty tails, and they are just so thrilled about Chanel. To be certain, I as well am literally trembling with excitement to see this campaign. It is leaves a sweet warm little Chanel-flavored taste in my mouth, and it isn't just because of the incredible and inspired choice to turn the Chanel roses into cat ears, but it is because of this: Imagine Carine Roitfeld, the ex-editor in chief of French Vogue who deftly birthed this cat-filled campaign from her mind space, saying to her assistants, "Oui oui. But, zee, I vant le chat!" and the entire room scurrying around trying to figure out how to get the perfect whiskers for a Chanel campaign (not too short, and not any of those CHEEKY whiskers because, HULLO THIS IS CHANEL). And then see them calling up some off-season costume store and explaining, hurriedly, that you need THE BEST whiskers and non-smudge nose makeup because you are making Freja Beha Erichsen into a snuggly little feline.
