5. Get a cat!
Forget the sunglasses and the gloves, the actually number one most important Lagerfeld accessory is his cat Choupette. Since being taken in by Karl, Choupette has become a fashion superstar in her own right. Originally owned by one of Karl’s friends, he was asked to mind the persian cat and in the end he couldn't let her go. Now Choupette just might be the most spoiled lady in fashion since she has her own maids, gets manicures and eats with Karl at the dinner table. Oh and she also has her own iPad, which of course, she can use.

6. Don’t take it all too seriously
Ok, don’t worry Mr Lagerfeld does have a sense of humour even when it comes to himself and his famous image 'I am like a caricature of myself' he said, adding ‘and I like that. It is like a mask.’ Also don't worry too much about some of his less than pleasant comments, ‘everything I say is a joke. I am a joke myself.’ Which is good to hear. However although he may not take it all too seriously, he does know about the legend he’s built up around himself and it wasn't an accident ‘I've always known that I was made to live this way, that I would be this sort of legend.’ Indeed Mr Lagerfeld, the Kult of Karl is well and truely fashion legend.
