Earlier this summer Karl Lagerfeld unveiled one of the most special members of his team to the world as Choupette Lagerfeld -his impossibly cute white cat – launched her social media career under the handle @ChoupettesDiary. We soon found out that the petit chat had two maids, could work an iPad and had a V magazine spread in the. But little did we know that Karl’s feline friend is actually more than just a decorative appendage. Karl’s A-List neighbours (and Graziadaily’s favourite couple) Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson gave an insight into the powers of little Choupette.
Kruger – who got to meet Choupette!!- tells us that Karl is “obsessed” with the white ball of fur and that, “An entire collection was inspired by his cat’s eyes.” The jury’s out on which collection it could be but safe bets are on his very blue Spring 2012 Couture line.
What’s more Choupette has also had a Chanel handbag named after her – apparently knitted and soft in appearance -but we’ll have to wait until the labels’ S/S 2012 catwalk collection to get a look.

The couple also let us know what it’s like to live in the same neighbourhood as fashion’s most prolific polymath. “We randomly see him, like, just on the street sometimes,” Jackson told Vanity Fair. “He’s an incredibly, marvelously interesting man. But it’s strange to bump into him; he’s sort of a larger-than-life presence, so it’s odd to see him on the street.” Kruger then added that Karl “bizarrely loves Josh.” Cat obsessions and a love for Pacey, you simply can’t fault the man’s taste.
