The designer - whose collections are famed for their boned waists - wanted to make a bespoke item for his beloved feline but soon realised it wasn't a good idea. He said: "Do you know that cats can't wear corsets? They can't stand! Not at all - they just fall over. I know because I tried!".
Another irk Gaultier wanted to air to Stella magazine was about modern day celebrities who don't want to pay for his designs. He said: "I am not a businessman. When I first started out Hollywood stars came and tried on the dresses and had many fittings. Now they except the dresses for free. I hear some designers even pay for them to wear their clothes. It is hopeless."
