Subject of a new book, the most famous cat in fashion reveals what life is like as Karl Lagerfeld’s “kept woman”.
Likes: Playing hide and seek in the bathtub, dining on wet food in sauce, flicking pencils from the desk onto the floor.
Dislikes: Opera, room sprays, flight take-offs.
Such are the fancies and ennuis of Choupette, the most famous cat in fashion owned by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, according to the new book Choupette – The Private Life Of A High-Flying Fashion Cat, published by Flammarion in France and Thames & Hudson in the UK.
Edited by Patrick Mauries and Jean Christophe Napias with photographs by Lagerfeld, the small 123-page hardback being released on Sept 24 is an homage to the three-year-old fluffy white Burmese with spectacular blue eyes who has a life any supermodel would envy.
