We’ve been hearing a lot of buzz about Miss Piggy lately, and we couldn’t be happier. This is the pig that taught us to love fashion, to go after what we want, and that self-confidence is everything. Her fashion tastes have always been a little dramatic for our tastes, but with a new movie coming out next month—in which she plays Vogue Paris’s editor in chief wearing Zac Posen and Christian Louboutin—Miss P. is being given a modern makeover.

Our favourite little diva has been busy recently: she’s collabed with M.A.C and Opening Ceremony—she even appeared at the brand’s Soho store during Fashion Night Out, agreed to be a judge on the much-anticipated Project Runway All Stars (will she be sassier than Michael Kors?), and inspired OPI to create a Muppet-themed nail polish collection. Most exciting, however, is the news that several of fashions biggest names have designed outfits for her—Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Suno, Opening Ceremony, Brian Atwood, and Giles & Brother—and that an editorial of her in the wears will appear in the November issue of InStyle mag. We’ve got to admit: we are very excited.


Fashionista: “The designers really took Miss Piggy’s unique proportions into account. Gurung told WWD, “The Empire waist really complements her figure.” Brian Atwood went with black strappy sandals, telling the trade, ‘The strappy sandal seemed to work best to complement her hoofs.’ (This just proves that if designers really put their minds to it, they can dress all body types.)” [Fashionista]

Fashionista: “And she looks pretty damn good for a lady who’s been in showbiz for 40 years. (Though it’s fairly obvious that she’s had a nip and tuck here and there).” [Fashionista]

Miss Piggy: “Style is about expressing your inner self, capturing your personal ethos, and, most importantly, spending someone else’s money.” [WWD]


Lesa Hannah, beauty director: “Miss Piggy should sleep with one eye open—if I saw her in person, there’d be a ‘HI-YAAA’ coming her way.”
