There’s always something new to learn about Karl Lagerfeld! According to Diane Kruger, not only does the designer adore his snow-white kitten, Choupette, he looks to his “kept” cat for inspiration, too. “He’s obsessed! An entire collection was inspired by his cat’s eyes,” Kruger told Vanity Fair. Whoa! (Did her aqua eyes inspire his sky-blue couture collection last spring?) And Choupette isn’t his only obsession: Lagerfeld is launching a sports-themed “Team Karl” collection at Selfridges in line with the 2012 Summer Olympics. Too much!
