There are many famous cats but Choupette beats them all!

This beautiful Birman Cat became an Internet sensation after designer Karl Lagerfeld adopted her from a friend in 2011. Besides being the Designer’s Muse, she has her own Brand, her own Business and is a Celebrity Persona in her own right.

You enjoy that wet frozen water you humans call snow. I’ll be right here cozy when you get back. #ChoupetteWins #Snowday

She is gorgeous! A true Diva … and like all divas she is a bit spoiled …

In a recent Interview to New York Magazine, Karl Lagerfeld said:

Tell me more about Choupette. Has she changed your life?

“It’s a miracle in the story. Choupette was not even given to me. Choupette belonged to a friend of mine who asked if my maid could take care of her for two weeks when he was away. When he came back, he was told that Choupette would not return to him. He got another cat who became fat, and Choupette became the most famous cat in the world, and the richest. She did two jobs and made 3 million euros last year. One was for cars in Germany and the other was for a Japanese beauty product. I don’t allow her to do foodstuffs and things like this. She’s too sophisticated for that. She had something unique. She is like a human being, but the good thing is that she’s silent. You don’t have to discuss it. She hates other animals and she hates children. She stays always with me and she has two personal maids. They play with her, they have to take care of her beautiful white hair, the beauty treatments for her eyes, and they entertain her. She is the center of the world. If you saw her, you would understand. She is kind of Greta Garbo. There is something unforgettable about her, the way she moves, the way she plays. She’s an inspiration for elegance. For attitude.”

Has she changed you?

“Maybe I became a better person perhaps, I don’t know. Less selfish, I guess? I think it’s grotesque, but what can you do? I believe in the unique. This is not just something to keep me company. It’s only great because of the uniqueness of her.”
