The Muppets get to have all the fun they want. And apparently all the high-fashion too!
For Miss Piggy’s return to the big screen in Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted, she commissioned none other than Vivienne Westwood to create her all-star wardrobe!
And with a wedding to take place, that left the designer with the hard task of creating a gown fit for a diva!
Miss Piggy divulged:
"Vivienne Westwood is fabulous—just like moi. When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit ‘iffy’ about it was the Frog."
Well, it looks like Vivienne did an AH-maze job with the corset detailing and tulle veil of Piggy’s Ivory Court wedding dress.
We especially adore her crystal stylings!
Vivienne even revealed to Miss Piggy via Harper’s Bazaar:
Miss Piggy: Besides the incredible opportunity to design for one of the greatest beauties of our time—moi—what inspired you to create this gown?
Vivenne Westood: The dress is one of my favorite styles. It's called the Court dress and is inspired by 17th-century English royalty and the court of King Charles II. It has been designed especially for you in a white pearl sequin fabric made from recycled water bottles. It's the perfect choice for a royal sow.
MP: My mantra is "It's better to live beyond your means than beneath your standards." What's your mantra?
VW: "Buy less, choose well, and make it last."
Of course that wasn’t all for the soon-to-be-Mrs. Kermit Frog. She also worked with the British designer on a houndstooth coat and matching beret, as well as a lacy, floral gown for the film.
Dayum! She sounds a little demanding, though we bet it all paid off! Ha!
