Flicking through Look Magazine*1 on this beautiful sunny afternoon I came across a very pampered kitty indeed. Owned by Karl Lagerfield and living a lifestyle any cat would dream of, Choupette is pretty fabulous.
She has 18,630 Instagram*2 followers (when I added) and counting and is a Chanel “dahling” posting images of Anna Wintour, Delevingne, Rhianna and Lady Gaga. Also on Twitter*3 with 38,987 followers she is described as:
I’m a famous beauty who refuses to eat on the floor & my maids pamper my every need. I am Choupette Lagerfeld and I am a spoiled pussy.
She is a natural model; Siamese with a snow-white coat and 3 years old. Unusually though she is the new face of Japanese brand Shu Uemura*4 – Released at Christmas the beauty range will include “furry false eyelashes” and I am looking forward to seeing other items in the range after seeing these …
Taken from Grazia*5:
Not one to be pigeon-holed Choupette also has a book deal. This Kitty has many hidden talents and a great marketing team behind her. The cover has been released promising an insight into the life of the “high-flying fashion cat”. Released on September 15th and available on Amazon pre-order*6, the description is:
“There is no marriage, yet, for human beings and animals … I never thought I would fall in love like this with a cat Karl Lagerfeld Choupette is the constant feline companion of designer Karl Lagerfeld, creative director at Chanel. She has her own iPad, eats next to Lagerfeld at the table from Goyard china, and has inspired couture collections. Choupette occasionally delivers words of wisdom to her devotees via Twitter, but here for the first time is her complete guide to the art of living. It is full of observations and precious advice from Choupettes vet, Madame Horn, and her housekeeper and maid, Madame Françoise, who keeps her daily diary. The book is divided into themed chapters on diet, beauty, healthcare, fashion tips, secret loves and pet hates. This is guaranteed to be this seasons most talked-about cat book, the perfect chic gift for cat lovers, the fashion-conscious and the style-aware”
Mine is ordered and I will share my thoughts with you in September.
Now it is fair to say Choupette is a top class model and would take some replacing. But maybe she could benefit from some competition? To keep her on her paws …
Here is Jess modelling the Waldo Pancake “Handbag for Cat“*7. Has she sold it to you?
