She doesn’t just have one name, this little feline diva has three. She is the proud pussy of Chanel Creative Director Karl Lagerfeld.
‘Her name is Choupette, Princess Choupette or Miss Choupette. She’s snow white with touches of caramel around the eyes, ears and on her endless boa-like feather tail,’ Mr Lagerfeld told i.D magazine.
Choupette is the most famous and fabulous pet Paris has ever seen. She may not be “commercial” but she has gotten her own photo spread in I-D Magazine. This feline fancy’s walks along the catwalk, lounging in antique lace, and frolicking in the garden. (her own private garden that is.)
“She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food. She doesn’t touch my food. She doesn’t want to eat on the floor. She sleeps under a pillow and she even knows how to use an iPad. She has two personal maids, for both night and day. She is beyond spoiled,” – Karl says.
When Karl is not with her, the maids keep a little Choupette diary, which includes her moods, movements, eating habits and behaviours. Karl explains, “In the nine months, we already have almost 600 pages…I think it could be funny to make a little book of Choupette’s diary.”
But it doesn’t end there, she has check-ups every ten days, and of course a weekly manicure. What more can a girl ask for…. I mean cat. In her free time you can find her sleeping, hiding, running and jumping like mad around the house, but she detests getting wet. And lets not forget this puss has over 14,000 followers on twitter. Choupette. Her favourite toy is a Colette shopping bag. “She likes strange toys, toys that aren’t supposed to be toys. She plays with pieces of wood, pieces of paper, shopping bags. She loves shopping bags. One is a huge Colette shopping bag that’s under the kitchen table. She spends hours in there and brings all her toys in there. And when I’m in bed, sometimes she comes and brings all her toys in my bed.” Karl explains to Bazar.
Chouppette may be a ‘sweetie’ for her owner, but this little wild child has a mischievous side. She loves to terrorize her maids Francoise and Marjorie.
I absolutely adore Choupette! This little one has two maids, an iPad, and a fashion king as a father. Who wouldn’t love the fluffy cute little fur ball. And I would defiantly read a book about her Diary! She is just to friggggin cute. Everyone can agree this little feline fits right in in the fashion world, cat’s personalities do match the fashion criteria – they’re beautiful and graceful but also kind of finicky.
Although she may of already landed a spread in i-D Magazine, it’s not over yet for this couture cat. This pussy’s fame knows no bounds, The pampered puss has landed a high-fashion shoot in the prestigious V Magazine alongside French model Laetitia Casta.
One thing you can all stop asking and wondering is when are we going to see her dressed up in a one of a kind Karl design? The answer is never, Karl finds dressing up animals to be cruel and inhumane. Not to shabby being a cat, considering her memoirs are being write for her in real time.
