Karl Lagerfeld, the creative force behind Chanel, has a newfound love for cats.
The glove-loving designer did a lengthy Q and A with Women’s Wear Daily‘s Marc Karimzadeh ahead of “The Little Black Jacket” tour —a travelling exhibition of images he collaborated on with Carine Roitfeld, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.
By far the best part was the end, where Lagerfeld talked about his nine-month old Siamese cat, Choupette.
Here’s what he had to say about his pet (emphasis ours): “She is like a kept woman. She has a strong personality. She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food. She doesn’t touch my food. She doesn’t want to eat on the floor. She sleeps under a pillow and she even knows how to use an iPad. She has two personal maids, for both night and day. She is beyond spoiled.”
Choupette’s two maids also keep a diary about everything she does, from what she eats to when she sleeps. In just nine months they already have nearly 600 pages, Lagerfeld reveals.
