Jared Leto dresses up as Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette on the Met Gala red carpet

Jared Leto cosplayed as Karl Lagerfeld’s cat Choupette at the 2023 Met Gala.

The “House of Gucci” star made his fifth appearance in an all-fur suit, dressed as the late designer’s beloved cat on Monday night, themed to honor Lagerfeld’s legacy.

The 30 Seconds to Mars frontman, who will star in and produce a biopic of the late Chanel fashion designer, finally removed his detachable head and smiled as he showed off the eerily realistic costume of Lagerfeld’s famous Birman cat.

Chouppette was originally rumored to be making her own Met Gala debut, but she ultimately stayed home.

Leto, 51, then changed into a black ensemble with a silver neckline. She paired the look with a black cape that showed off white shoulder pads.

Robertsson, who wore a silver Iris Van Herpen jumpsuit with silver structured wings, was mistaken for a mysterious Leto before the “Fight Club” actor arrived with Gucci designer Alessandro Michele, twinned in matching gold suits with red bows. .

In keeping with Leto’s desire for shock value, Leto appeared on the carpet in 2019 accompanied by a severed head, which resembled his own.

However, the actor seemed to lose his mind just six months later.

Lagerfeld’s famous cat was rumored to make an appearance at Met Gala, but he decided to stay behind.

In an interview with GQ in which the shiny asked where his creepy replica was, Leto said: “Honestly, I have no idea. I think someone may have stolen it. If anyone finds it, take it to your nearest Gucci store in exchange for a dirty pair of sneakers.”

As for the upcoming biopic, Leto told Deadline that Lagerfeld was an “inspiration” to the singer, calling him “a true scholar, an artist, an innovator, a leader, and most importantly, a kind man.”

Continuing, he said: “When we met the Karl Lagerfeld team, we immediately shared a creative vision of making a respectful ode to Karl while pushing the artistic boundaries of what a biopic can be. I am very grateful to Karo, Pier and Seb for allowing us to embark on this journey together.”
