Tabs for Chanel No. 5

Crushed… Tabs was crushed when he found out that Brad Pitt beat him out for Chanel’s big new ad campaign for Chanel No. 5.


It just didn’t make any sense. Tabs had already done a very successful run of No. 5 print ads earlier this year for magazines (like the ad up top), so when he got the call from his agent last month that the Chanel people decided to “go a different route” this time, Tabs couldn’t believe his ears.

“Mrow!?” he barked on the phone to his agent (“Who got the job?”).

“Brad Pitt,” his agent replied.

Well, Tabs felt a little better when he heard that. After all, Brad Pitt is also a pretty big star.

In this business, you win some, you lose some. C’est la vie. 🙂

Even though Tabs lost the new Chanel campaign, he’s still been very busy. This week he had kitty modeling jobs for a bunch of big brands, including MAC, Tom Ford Beauty, Estée Lauder and Korres. If you’re interested, here are the pics (Tabs is very proud of these)…

Who is Tabs the Cat? About five years ago I befriended a stray, flea-bitten tabby cat with a bad case of worms. I could see he’d fallen on hard times, but his profound knowledge of high fashion and department store cosmetics led me to believe that he was more than meets the eye. We became fast friends, and now he’s actually my boss (and a successful kitty model). 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. Like Tabs’ husky midsection, the blog’s archives are bursting at the seams…with kitty modeling pictures. 🙂 Yes, there’s a lot more tabby to love in the Makeup and Beauty Blog archives.

P.P.S. Happy Veterans Day!
