Today’s famous feline is a beautiful white-furred, fashion forward Siamese kitty named Choupette… who also happens to be the beloved pet cat of famous fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld. So what makes this famous feline so special?
Choupette was gifted to Karl Lagerfeld during the Christmas season of 2011. Lagerfeld was initially supposed to catsit Choupette for French male model Baptiste Giabiconi, however, he simply fell in love with her, and couldn’t give her up.
Since being adopted by Lagerfeld, Choupette has become famous in her own right. She has been the inspiration of a Chanel Handbag, and the Spring 2012 Chanel Couture Collection (the collection was cornflower blue, which is believed to be inspired by Choupette’s beautiful blue eyes). Choupette has also been featured on the cover of German Vogue Magazine, and in V Magazine alongside French model/actress Laetitia Casta.
Today, Choupette is living a life of luxury. She enjoys spending her time playing on her iPad, and being looked after by her very own maids, Francoise and Marjorie. Need some cat fashion advice? Be sure to visit Choupette’s Facebook Page and her Twitter Account for some feline inspiration.
