Laetitia Casta & Choupette for V Magazine
It's only been a week since Choupette Lagerfeld made her editorial debut in i-D, but she's already poised to cement her title as the world's most fashionable feline. Often referred to as the "Kate Moss of the cat modeling world," the pampered Parisian puss recently posed with her designer cat daddy Karl Lagerfeld for Harper's Bazaar, and French supermodel Laetitia Casta for V.
The V editorial, shot by Lagerfeld in the City of Light, features Casta posing seductively on a bed overlooking the Eiffel Tower, with Choupette standing in as her very furry prop. In the accompanying article, Casta says, “She is an unusually beautiful cat, and it was a lovely experience.”
BuzzFeed Shift recently posted an in-depth article about the "rapidly growing world of cat modeling," focusing on the rise of Choupette and the increasing demand for kitties in the high fashion biz. The gist of it is that cats are considered chic right now, model cats require training from birth, your house cat probably isn't going to hit it big, and even if they do, there's not a lot of money in it for pussycats who pose.
