Over the weekend, a frisky feline put the “cat” in catwalk by crashing a fashion show runway in Istanbul.
An unidentified grey and white stray cat stole the show at an haute couture fashion show, strutting down the runway with the models and plopping down to have a bath.
Unruffled by the loud music or busy runway, the kitty took a few swipes at the models as they walked past before getting tired of the lack of attention and exiting the catwalk. Fashion show guests were quick to document the incident on social media with a few audible laughs from the crowd that can be heard in videos posted to Instagram.
“Everybody was in shock,” fashion designer Goksen Hakki Ali told press following the show. Asked whether the cat had a future in fashion, she replied, “Maybe. Why not?”
Istanbul is well known for its stray cats and cat lovers, most recently chronicled in the 2017 documentary “Kedi”.
