We’ve been inundated with information about Choupette Lagerfeld’s lavish lifestyle, which is replete with iPads, multiple maids, and trips to St. Tropez in the cockpit (so she can look at the sky, duh); but there have been disappointingly few photos of Karl Lagerfeld’s adorable kitten–until now.
i-D had the honor of publishing what seems to be the first full Choupette Lagerfeld photo spread, also known as our dream come true. The cuteness is nearly too much to bear. Not only are there 10 never-before-seen photos of Choupette and her beautiful blue eyes; but there’s also a sketch by her dad labeled “The Coco Cat” and, randomly, a photo of Hudson Kroenig–you know, that adorable three year old son of model Brad Kroenig–wearing a Choupette t-shirt that I need to own. Like, I would actually pay an unreasonable amount of money for that shirt.
There’s only one thing that has the potential to out-cute that and it would be a picture of Hudson holding Choupette. If that happened, though, I might actually just die.
Although the piece is 100% about her, Choupette has not yet been taught how to speak (we’re sure her maids, whom we now know are named Francoise and Marjorie, are working on it), so Karl himself fielded questions about the cat, who, as the designer correctly predicted, has officially become more famous than him. If you thought you already knew all there is to know about Choupette, you were wrong. Here are a few new things we learned:
She has three names: “Her name is Choupette, Princess Choupette or Miss Choupette.” Her “pet hates” include “water and getting wet.” She has a private garden, in which she likes to chase “big fleas,” whatever that means. She also loves “driving her beloved maids (Francoise and Marjorie) crazy.” And she loves destroying paper but that is really too normal a cat thing to even mention.
