The iconic designer launched his exhibition titled The Little Black Jacket on Wednesday, where he was joined by a personal drink holder. According to the New York Post, Karl was tailed by a member of catering staff whose “sole task” was to hold the fizzy beverage for the Chanel star.

Despite having the soft drink to hand, Karl allegedly “never touched” his tipple.

The SoHo exhibition was a star-studded affair, with celebrities including Lily Collins, Anna Wintour, Linda Evangelista and Zoë Kravitz all in attendance.

Lily had her picture taken with Karl and reportedly exclaimed to a friend: “Oh my God, I think I’m going to faint!”

Karl’s nine-month-old cat also made headlines this week when the legend revealed Choupette “has lunch and dinner with him on the table.”

He also added: “She sleeps under a pillow and she even knows how to use an iPad. She has two personal maids.”

Model Joan Smalls says the star is proud of his pet.

“Every time we’re on jobs, he gets pictures from his maids that send him updates about his cat. He’s like a proud parent where he wants everybody to see every picture, and I think it’s so sweet and shows a sensitive side,” she said.
