Karl Lagerfeld has long been one of my fave Virgoans Of Fashion – it’s the quotability, coming out with schizz like “trackpants are a sign of defeat” automatically makes you more interesting than most of the characters in his realm, right?
But who knew he was such a big Cat Lady? There are loads of articles like this one, detailing the luxe life of his LEO cat Choupette. The maids for the cat, the diary kept of her life, the private jet to St Tropez – the cat flies in the cockpit, the magazine covers, that Choupette was obtained by K.L off Scorpio male supermodel Baptise Giabiconi...
I get it. But i have four major points that are not being properly reported re this – you have to wonder what journalism has come to…
(1) A Leo Cat being possibly the most pampered and documented feline on the planet is hilarious.
(2) Karl Lagerfeld has Mars conjunct Bast (aka Asteroid Ubasti – the Cat Goddess) in Scorpio. This was inevitable.
(3) Where is the Choupette foundation for giving aid to less fortunate felines? It would be both charitable, obviously, and also a chance for doting cat lady Karl to get the cats image more out there and enduring. I am thinking an Andy Warhol style portrait of Choupette – hot pink and turquoise – and with the message Choupette Supports The Street Cats Of St Tropez. Or something.
(4) The drooling media articles re Choupette make a big deal of how her water bowls are some sort of fancy Limoges or whatever BUT every Cat Person/Bast worshipper knows that cats are supposed to have Cat Fountains – because they apparently don’t register water unless it is flowing. Which makes cats kind of oriental and Bruce Lee by nature.
