We’re going to admit something to you: MTV Style has a full-on OBSESSION with The Muppets. Anything fuzzy, furry, and Jim Henson-related makes our day. Case in point, the trailer for the new documentary Being Elmo, which may have made a few of us cry a little while watching it on repeat. Also? A new photo shoot for InStyle magazine starring… Miss Piggy! Not only does anything involving the preeminent, pink-loving, porcine glamour gal fill us with glitter cheer, this new photo spread features Miss P all dressed up in custom prêt-à-porter from the likes of Prabal Gurung, Opening Ceremony, Jason Wu, and Suno.
According to an article about the InStyle article in WWD, Miss P wears everything from an empire waist, white duchesse silk dress from Prabal Gurung to a flamboyant feathered number from Jason Wu. Gurung told WWD, “I didn’t want to dress Miss Piggy in anything that would take away from her bold personality so I went with a simple, classic dress and neutral color,” adding that the cinched waist really complements her figure. We wonder if she’ll be dressed similarly when she is seen as the editor of Paris Vogue in the upcoming Muppets movie. (Will there be any Parisian designers represented, like, say, Isabel Marant or Balmain?)
According to InStyle, Miss Piggy’s style is timeless. She hasn’t been on the silver screen in almost 12 years, but the managing editor of the magazine says, “This style maven is living proof that confidence—and a whole lot of it—can get you everywhere.” We’d have to agree. We think Miss P can wear absolutely anything. We loved her white gown and silver platforms at the Opening Ceremony Fashion’s Night Out party and happen to think that she would look AH-MAZING in haute couture at some point (paging Uncle Karl). As for Miss Piggy’s thoughts on her personal style, she has this to say: “Style is about expressing your inner self, capturing your personal ethos, and, most importantly, spending someone else’s money.”
