Is Choupette More Famous Than Karl Lagerfeld?

Karl Lagerfeld Thinks His Cat Is More Famous Than He Is

Perhaps it's due to the Chanel bag that bears her name, or the parody Twitter account dedicated to her daily life, but Karl Lagerfeld now thinks his 1-year-old cat Choupette is more notorious than he is.

"You know, personally, I don't even think that I'm famous," said Lagerfeld in an interview with The Independent. "Now, Choupette really is famous. She has become the most famous cat in the world. I even get propositioned by pet food companies and things like that but it's out of the question. I'm commercial. She's not. She's spoiled to death. Obviously."

In the past, Lagerfeld has revealed that Choupette refuses to eat on the ground and has two maids who chronicle all the quotidian details of her life. Choupette even flies in the cockpit of Lagerfeld's private plane because "she loves looking at the sky." When Lagerfeld travels without Choupette — as he did recently to celebrate the launch of his eponymous collection at Selfridges in London — he's careful not to stay away from home too long.

"Choupette waits for me at the front door," he said. "She doesn't like being alone. She gets moody."
