Grimes may be eating a mouse on the current issue of V but we hear another furry little animal will be gracing a forthcoming issue alongside a gorgeous supermodel. We’re obviously talking about Choupette Lagerfeld, who will make her modeling debut with the inimitable Laetitia Casta.
According to WWD, Casta recently “cozied up to Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette for a photo spread in V magazine.” And considering V‘s Stephen Gan was the first person to ever Tweet a photo of the now famous kitten, we’re inclined to believe it.
We’re glad Choupette is starting young–she won’t be a kitten forever and may not have many good modeling years left. In WWD a few weeks ago, Lagerfeld called Choupette a “famous beauty,” and now she’ll finally be able to live up to that name. And while it did seem ridiculous that Choupette had two maids and a then-600 page diary, we guess now that she’s a model it’s kind of ok. She is also probably the inspiration for one of Chanel’s new handbags, so she’s really moving into that model/muse role.
In somewhat related news, we’ve learned from ShowStudio’s Twitter that Kim Kardashian has also just been shot for V. Whose spread do you think will be better–Kim’s or Choupette’s?
