The Cat's Out of the Chanel Bag...and It's Named After Choupette Lagerfeld
Jul 03, 2012 - by Lester Brathwaite
2012 may very well go down as the year Choupette Lagerfeld lovingly clawed the eyes out of the world. Aside from living a life that most of us could only dream, and a very successful Twitter following, it seems the fancy feline is getting the ultimate honor: a Chanel bag named after her.
Whilst making a routine couture visit to Chanel headquarters yesterday, noted harridan/sassbot Cathy Horyn of the New York Times tweeted: "I just saw the Choupette bag in the studio at Chanel. Knitted, soft. Name of Karl's cat."
And there we have it.
Grace Kelly. Jane Birkin. Choupette Lagerfeld.
Rolls off the tongue, doesn't it? One could say it even purrs.
And it's nice to see that Karl Lagerfeld is getting along nicely after his amorous ambassadorship with Blake Lively came to an end. Of course when it comes to Choupette, there's only room for one puss in Karl's life. [Telegraph]
