Karl Lagerfeld, creative director of Chanel and legendary fashion icon, died yesterday in Paris. The designer was known for his many accomplishments, eccentricities, prolific career, dark shades and the deep love he had for his cat, Choupette.
Elle speculates that Choupette, an Instagram star and probably one of the world’s most famous cats, is set to inherit a large piece of Lagerfeld’s $170 million fortune.

Choupette has over 200,000 followers, has attended the most exclusive and fashionable events and has also modeled with Gisele Bundchen. In 2015, she (Choupette, not Gisele) made over $3 million with two modeling jobs — one for a Japanese beauty product and the other for a German car company. Choupette supposedly has an iPad, two dedicated maids, and meals served at the dinner table. According to Lagerfeld, she is also very polite and well behaved. “She has lunch and dinner with me on the table, with her own food,” he said back in 2012 , “She doesn’t touch my food.”
We hope whomever inherits Choupette treats her just as well as her former owner and ensures that her modeling career continues to blossom.
