Is it just us or have The Muppets REALLY been stepping up their style game lately? First it was Miss Piggy all gorgeously decked out in Prabal Gurung for InStyle, and then this UH-MAZING image of Kermit the Frog in head-to-toe Brooks Brothers lands in our inbox and, um, we think this officially seals the deal. I mean, just look at him! He KNOWS he’s a style god in his custom-made, notch lapel tuxedo with a pleated tuxedo shirt and butterfly bow tie—and he’s also got the attitude to prove it. In fact, HMMMMM. This is gettin’ us thinking! In light of the news yesterday that Eddie Murphy quit hosting the Oscars, we might know a little green guy that’d be PERFECT for the job…
I mean, Kermit’s got it all—looks, charm, style, UNDENIABLE acting ability, and he’s even got chops (boy can SANG). He’s even got The Muppets movie coming out around Thanksgiving (so timely!), and he’s SUCH a fashion icon that the Brooks Brothers are basically dedicating an entire portion of their website to him! (Think: Exclusive Q&As with Kermit, footage from the upcoming film, and their retail stores will showcase customized film posters.) So, Academy, if you are listening, we think we’ve found the solution to all your problems—the stunning, the charming, the talented, the ever-so-stylish, Mr. Kermit the Frog as your 2012 host.
(Also, psst! Happy 42nd birthday to Sesame Street, Kermit! From TV to film, you have TRULY come so far!)
