The fashion world went into mourning on Tuesday after Chanel's head honcho, Karl Lagerfeld , tragically passed away.
Aside from designer fashion and black sunglasses, Karl had a penchant for his beloved cat, Choupette.
In fact, Karl was so enamoured with his pet cat that he said he would marry her if it were legal. So it's hardly surprising that Karl's furry friend could be in line to inherit a portion of the late designer's £150m riches.
In fact, the fashion designer even said himself last year said that “among others” his pet would receive a share of his fortune.
According to French newspaper, Le Figaro, this could indeed be feasible under German law if the cat was nominated the ‘heir’ through an association or foundation.
Karl's precious cat is an Instagram star in her own right. With around 200,000 followers on social media, she regularly posts snaps of her jet-set lifestyle alongside father, Karl. It's been reported that Choupette has her own bodyguard, personal chef and two maids.
On the cat's account yesterday, an Instagram highlights reel named 'RIP Daddy' was added. Touching.
Other than Choupette, Karl's male model muse, Brad Kroenig, as well as Kroenig's son and Karl's godson, Hudson, who has starred in many of his Chanel shows, could be in with a portion of the inheritance.

On making Meryl Streep's Oscars 2017 dress
“I made a sketch, and we started to make [her] dress. [Her camp then told us] 'Don’t continue the dress. We found somebody who will pay us.' After we gift her a dress that’s 100,000 euros, we found later we had to pay [for her to wear it]. We give them dresses, we make the dresses, but we don’t pay.
“A genius actress, but cheapness also, no?”
Meryl's reply said: "I do not take this lightly, and Mr Lagerfeld's generic 'statement' of regret for this 'controversy' was not an apology." Eek.
"I don't do selfies. But other people do, and they all want to do selfies with me. No, no, no," Lagerfeld told the New York Times. "We live in a world of selfies now... Thank God, Sébastien, my assistant, he's mean to the people in the street, mean and rude. I'm a nice person."
On... discussing fashion with men
"There are not too many people with an opinion I care for. I'm not crazy to discuss fashion with men. I couldn't care less about their opinion," he said to the New York Times.
"What I've done, Coco Chanel would never have done. She would have hated it."
"I think tattoos are horrible. It's like living in a Pucci dress full-time"
On Diet Coke
"I drink Diet Coke from the minute I get up to the minute I go to bed."
"Work is making a living out of being bored."
"He is very middle-of-the-road French-very pied-noir, very provincial."
On Pippa Middleton
"Kate Middleton has a nice silhouette and she is the right girl for that boy. I like that kind of woman, I like romantic beauties. On the other hand, her sister struggles. I don't like the sister's face. She should only show her back."
On short men
"Life is not a beauty contest, some [ugly people] are great. What I hate is nasty, ugly people... the worst is ugly, short men. Women can be short, but for men it is impossible. It is something that they will not forgive in life... they are mean and they want to kill you."
“If you see it you will think about everything except sex, because it is the unsexiest room ever. I love unsexy bedrooms.”
On women who object to thin models
"They are fat mummies sitting with their bags of crisps in front of the television, saying that thin models are ugly".
"The most important piece in the house is the garbage can."
On Heidi Klum

On smart women
"I remember a designer who said that intelligent women don't wear her dresses. Obviously, she went bankrupt."
"Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants."

"Normally, I don't recommend me for wedding dresses - they all get a divorce."
On Michelle Obama
"I don't understand the change of hair. I adore Madame Obama, I love her. But there is a news reader at LCI which has this haircut... Frankly, this doesn't suit her. The fringe was a bad idea, it's not good."
"I have no human feelings."
On his personality
"I am like a caricature of myself, and I like that. It is like a mask. And for me the Carnival of Venice lasts all year long."
On being quotable
