A Piggy Valentine’s Day
Miss Piggy is getting married! And guess who designed the dress?
Vivienne Westwood. How cute is that?
Ms Westwood was commissioned to create a couture white dress for Le Pig that would be perfect for a wedding…if one should actually take place in the upcoming Muppets Most Wanted movie, out on March 28th in the UK.
According to the Piggy puppet: “Vivienne Westwood is fabulous—just like moi. When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit ‘iffy’ about it was the Frog.”
Miss Piggy’s long ivory court wedding gown, with corset detailing and paillettes made from recycled plastic bottles, is accessorised with an ivory tulle veil and additional looks for the film created by Westwood include a couture Harris Tweed hounds tooth check coat and matching beret and a long, silver hand-embroidered floral lace gown.
I am actually jealous of a puppet.
Robbie Williams fans may be even more jealous than me when they watch the special Valentine’s Day message below (I would have only been tantalised if former Muppet collaborator and my-fantasy-husband Bret McKenzie had sent her the video love note….)
