Choupette Lagerfeld, Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat, Made $3.23 Million Last Year


Karl Lagerfeld was in New York City for 48 hours to accomplish three very important things.

1) Present his collection at Chanel’s Paris-Salzburg Show.

2) Snag a photo for Beyoncé’s Instagram.

3) Gush to The Cut about the love of his life, his cat, Choupette Lagerfeld–who sat in her own room with her own maid at the Mercer Hotel during Papa Karl’s interview.

The Cut simply had to ask how the little white fluffball had changed her owner’s life before Karl began gushing about Choupette, who he refers to as “the most famous cat in the world, and the richest.”How rich?

“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.”


He wasn’t done.

“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.”


Still not done.

“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”


Still not done.

“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.”


Okay, he’s done.
