Choupette‘s first-ever magazine shoot is here! Fashion’s most famous kitty puts her best face forward with French model-turned-actress Laetitia Casta in the September issue of V magazine. The glossy is quick to point out that Casta is the co-star of the shoot and that the two were photographed “one balmy evening in Paris”.
In the black and white spread, Karl Lagerfeld‘s prized feline lounges as a half-naked Casta does her best impression of Blue Steel. There are also pics of Casta and Choupette cuddling, Choupette sitting on Casta’s back, and Choupette looking away as Casta spreads her legs in what appears to be an incredibly awkward attempt to walk the disinterested feline. Sadly, the cat didn’t chat with V, though we imagine it would have been as hilarious and unbelievable as any of Lagerfeld’s interviews.
Instead, the interview is largely about Casta’s burgeoning film career. The 34-year-old model has been moonlighting in French films such as Born in 68, Gainsbourg: A Heroic Life, and Les Ames Fortes. This fall, she has a small role in her first American flick, Arbitrage, alongside Richard Gere, Tim Roth, and Susan Sarandon. But she did have one delightful thing to say about little Chou-Chou:
“She is an unusually beautiful cat, and it was a lovely experience. Karl is so cultured. He arrived and was very surrounded, but I told him that I want to have lunch alone with him. I am interested in one-on-one.”
