A Toast to Choupette: An Icon for Crazed Cat Ladies and Fashion Fanatics Alike
Let us all raise a glass to the best dressed marshmallow fluff that we all envy; Choupette Lagerfeld. Choupette is the all-white Birman cat that was passed from model Baptiste Giabiconi, the current face of menswear for Chanel, Fendi and Karl Lagerfeld’s self-titled brand, to Karl Lagerfeld as a gift.
Her first media appearance on twitter in 2012 launched an online persona that is best described as a fierce blend of Marie, the memorable female kitten from the Disney Classic Aristocats, and Blair Waldorf of Gossip Girl fame. If her Instagram tag line isn’t a testament to a purrrrrfectly extravagant pussy-cat than nothing is, “I’m Daddy #KarlLagerfeld’s spoiled #Chanel pussy whose maids pamper her every need.”
So, as we celebrate National Pet Day, let’s all raise a glass of Meow & Chandon Rosé, from PetWinery, to the fabulous feline that is said to have inspired Karl’s Spring 2012 Couture collection, for you Choupette, à la vôtre
