If the thought of 17-year-old Kylie Jenner buying a 2.7 million dollar Calabasas pad made you feel bad about your less-than-glamourous life, prepare to feel even worse, because newsflash: a cat is making more money than you. Yep, Karl Lagerfeld’s blue-eyed Siamese cat Choupette made a killing last year. Lagerfeld talked to The Cut about Choupette’s moneymaking savvy:
“She did two jobs and made 3 million euros last year,” he said. “One was for cars in Germany and the other was for a Japanese beauty product. I don’t allow her to do foodstuffs and things like this. She’s too sophisticated for that.” Compare those 3 million euros to some of the world’s highest paid models like Joan Smalls, Erin Wasson, Lindsey Wixson, Candice Swanepoel, Erin Heatherton and Daria Werbowy, who certainly didn’t make their 3 million dollars last year by booking two gigs.
The gravy train for Mlle Choupette, whose life and times have been documented in a book, continues this month as she’s snagged a cover of Lucky magazine’s special edition April Fools’ Day issue.
