Karl Lagerfeld may soon be eclipsed by his cat.

By now, everyone is aware that the fashion legend's white longhaired beauty, Choupette (otherwise known as "the most famous cat in the world"), has maids who feed her and keep her diary. In a new interview with Harper's Bazaar, Lagerfeld reveals that Choupette has even more creature comforts at her disposal.

"The doctor does her manicure," he tells the magazine in its September issue. "She hates when we do it ourselves. The only time she makes a scandal is then."

Lagerfeld also posed, for the first time, with Choupette in an artsy black-and-white shot for the feature, which means we can't fully appreciate Choupette's most radiant feature: her eyes.

"She's really a stunning beauty," says the designer. "Her eyes are blue, blue, blue, blue, blue. And also her movement is so beautiful."

She may get fed pâté on Goyard plates and get brushed twice a day, but Choupette has stayed true to her cat core.

"She likes strange toys, toys that aren't supposed to be toys," Lagerfeld says. "She plays with pieces of wood, pieces of paper, shopping bags. She loves shopping bags."

"But when I'm working, she sits next to me," he adds. "And when I want to write letters, she sits on the papers because she doesn't want me to write letters."
