Choupette has been very busy these days. First she landed herself a 13-photo spread in the recent issue of i-D, and now she’s gone and scored another major fashion editorial in the same week. This time it’s in Harper’s Bazaar and she’s being held up by dad Karl Lagerfeld. Wearing cat ears. (We think.)
Appearing in two major editorials in one week and being Lagerfeld’s constant travel buddy can get terribly tiring for any cat–but,of course, Choupette isn’t your average kitty. Among some of the revelations in the interview are that she has “an attitude like a princess,” she doesn’t like to eat on the floor and that the “doctor gives her a manicure.”
But, as remarkable a cat as Choupette is, she still is, after all, a cat. Asked what she likes to play with, Lagerfeld said:
“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…Her favorite 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.”
Celebrity cats: They’re just like our cats.
