It's one thing to realize you'll never be as cool as Beyoncé, but it's an entirely other thing to realize that you will be never cooler than a cat.
I'm not talking about a run-of-the-mill internet-famous cat. I'm talking about Karl Lagerfeld's cat, Choupette.
Obviously, Choupette is inherently cool because she gets to call Karl Lagerfeld her owner but she is also ~hip~ in her own right: she has her own makeup line with Shu Umera, called Shupette, and even has her own Twitter and Instagram accounts.
We've known for a long time how cool Choupette is, but when you examine all the evidence together, we feel completely inadequate. Here are just a few examples of Choupette's luxe lifestyle–we bow down.
She lands magazine covers
I will literally never be on any cover of anything in my lifetime. She's been on multiple covers, including the cover of Vogue Germany, NBD.
She travels in style
Does she even know what "coach" is? It seems like definitely not.
She's more famous than Grumpy Cat
Hello Kitty who?
I won't have this kind of wisdom until I'm old and wrinkly.
She dines like a queen
Note the personalized water bowl. Trés chic.
She's a fashion icon
Her father is constantly inspired by her–she has inspired two of his lines.
She has a balloon modeled after her
Those eyes, though.
She's an inspiration to us all
This is what she considers work–we're all better people just by knowing her.
