Net-a-Porter's 'Fashion's Newest Star' film follows the literal steps of designer Karl Lagerfeld's cat Choupette. The ivory feline has quickly taken to stardom, appearing in editorials for i-D magazine and V Magazine. The footage offers a ground-up behind-the-scenes perspective with some adorable meow noises interspersed throughout.

Choupette's fame speaks to the enormous power that Lagerfeld wields. Most of what he touches, endorses or owns becomes critically acclaimed, and it was only a matter of time before his pet became a matter of public import.

Models, photographers and stylists make way for Choupette in Fashion's Newest Star as she struts through the sets. The scene closes with a sign that reads "Love Choupette Lagerfeld," animal personification in its most stylish sense.
