Choupette, the fiercest kitty in fashion, lives a lifestyle that most grown women would long for. With her two beloved maids by her side, Karl Lagerfeld’s precious pussy instagrams and tweets her views on everything from fashion to her daily traumas. And now, the ultimate fashion queen allows us a small insight into her fabulously furry life.
Choupette, first things first, how do you keep your fur in such beautiful condition?
—I’d like to say that I have a natural je ne sais coiffe about me but I owe it all to my maids and Philip B’s Russian Amber Imperial shampoo.
What is your favourite scent?
—My natural eau de feline or Chanel N°5.
What has been your most favourite thing that you have seen during the fashion weeks?
—From NYFW it’s always the Blonds show. What fancy feline doesn’t like platinum blonde designers and sparkling corsets? During PFW, daddy Karl Lagerfeld steals my spotlight with the Chanel shows. Since I’m off coffee for my New Year’s resolution, I was sadly unable to sip alongside Cara Delevingne at the Chanel cafe.
And what has been the worst?
—Despite the hype, Kanye West never fails to make my fur stand on end.
Which of your daddy’s Karlisms is one which you feel is most important for us all to adhere to?
—“Sunglasses are like eyeshadow, they make everything look younger and prettier.”
What is it like to be the most famous feline in fashion?
—I’d like to say that it’s humbling but that would be a lie.
What is your biggest accomplishment so far?
—My book, Choupette: The Private Life of a High-Flying Fashion Cat. Not every feline can say they’ve penned a book.
You have already inspired a great many collections and fashion stories, what does the future hold for Choupette?
—Next comes my memoir, then a catwalk down the Chanel runway, and finally complete fashion world domination. It’s pretty standard.
