It’s hard to believe Choupette Lagerfeld has only been gracing us with her “great beauty” for a mere year now. From her almost 16,000 follower count on Twitter to her multiple appearances in between glossy covers, the adorable furball has undoubtedly achieved more in a year than any other feline (and some humans) do in their lives.

She celebrated the milestone with dad Karl Lagerfeld yesterday, who tweeted a pic of the kitten with a cat-style cake (i.e. five shrimp arranged in a cartwheel configuration). So what exactly has the fashion world’s most illustrious kitty squeezed into her first year of life?

Well since we “chatted” with her last month, the biggest news is that the spoiled feline has purportedly landed a major modeling contract. In Choupette’s most recent spread in V Magazine with Laetita Casta, the modeling credits read: “Model Laetitia Casta and choupette [IMG]”). While there hasn’t been a confirmation yet from IMG, considering Choupette’s fashion accolades, we wouldn’t be all that surprised if she’d landed modeling-gold.

The kitten also had a feature in i-D and starred alongside her dad for a Harper’s Bazaar spread.

It will be hard to top such an illustrious year, but we have a feeling Choupette has the wherewithal to do it. What do you think her next step will be? Walking for Chanel? Starring as a guest judge on Project Runway?
