Chanel, where he had been a creative director for more than three decades, confirmed that Lagerfeld passed away in Paris aged 85 on Tuesday.
While the fashion world mourned the loss of a great talent, it wasn’t long before attention shifted to Lagerfeld’s famous pet, who is almost as much of an icon in the fashion industry.
An Instagram account dedicated to documenting the intricacies of Choupette’s life boasts 198,000 followers and the famous feline also has a popular blog, both of which are run by digital marketing expert Ashley Tschudin.
According to French newspaper Le Figaro, Choupette might be entitled to Lagerfeld’s multi-million pound fortune under German law.
