Laetitia Casta On Modeling With Karl Lagerfeld’s Cat Choupette

Jessica Wakeman / September 3, 2012

“So we are shooting on this balcony in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris and I was so fucking scared that Choupette would step back and fall off and that Karl would hate me forever because I killed his cat. The cat was like, ‘maaaiooowarrgh’ and I was like, ‘gasp.’ I did everything with that cat. We even shot on the bed. The whole thing was about Choupette. And she has two nannies … It was a weird job, when I think about it.”

I don’t exactly blame model Laetitia Casta for being terrified of “working with” Choupette for a 10-page editorial for V magazine. I mean, what if Choupette went back home with Karl and said “Meow. I don’t like that woman, one of her earlobes is bigger than the other one.” You know Karl Lagerfeld would never work with her again. [Fashionista]
