There’s no questioning the fact that Karl Lagerfeld is a fascinating man. An interview with him is always a delightful read, and the one The Cut just conducted is no exception. Among all the positively intriguing facts and little peepholes into his life, his response to a question about his cat Choupette stands out.
“She is like a human being, but the good thing is that she’s silent. You don’t have to discuss it. 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. 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.”
