MISS PIGGY CALLS ON VIVIENNE WESTWOOD TO DESIGN KEY WARDROBE FOR THE ALL-NEW DISNEY FILM â€œMUPPETS MOST WANTEDâ€
11th Feb 2014. At last! Miss Piggy is back on the big screen, starring in Disneyâ€™s â€œMuppets Most Wanted,â€ which follows the Muppets on a grand, star-studded tour throughout Europe. The European setting screamed romance to Miss Piggy, whoâ€™s been trying to convince her favourite frog to tie the knot for years. But what will the divine diva don for the all-new film, which hits theatres in the US March 21, 2014? Vivienne Westwood was commissioned to create couture designs for the fashion icon, including a white dress that would be perfect for a wedding â€¦ if one should actually take place.
â€œVivienne Westwood is fabulousâ€”just like moi,â€ said Miss Piggy. â€œWhen I asked her to design this wedding dress for moiâ€™s new movie â€œMuppets Most Wanted,â€ she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit â€˜iffyâ€™ about it was the Frog.â€
In the film, Miss Piggy wears a Vivienne Westwood couture Long Ivory Court wedding gown, with corset detailing and paillettes made from recycled plastic bottles, accessorised with an ivory tulle veil. Piggy also entrusted the designer with additional looks for the film, including a Vivienne Westwood couture Harris Tweed houndstooth check coat and matching beret worn in a scene set at Tower of London. Miss Piggy also chose a long silver hand-embroidered floral lace gown for a very special number in the film.
So the question on everyoneâ€™s lips remains: Will we see Miss Piggy marry her beloved Kermie in â€œMuppets Most Wanted,â€ and will she finally get to wear her dream Vivienne Westwood gown down the aisle?
â€œYouâ€™ll have to see the movie to find out,â€ insisted Miss Piggy.
