Miss Piggy Gets Married!
Many celebrities choose a designer wedding dress, and Vivienne Westwood has been the designer of choice for Dita Von Teese and Carrie Bradshaw, but now she’s reached the pinnacle. Ms Westwood has designed the wedding gown of none other than Miss Piggy!
Okay, we’re still a bit tongue-in-cheek, but the story is true. Kermit and Miss Piggy got married in “Muppets Most Wanted” which opened end of March. However, also like Carrie Bradshaw, it’s not entirely clear if this wedding goes through … in either case, the Westwood gown is definitely a huge success. We think you’ll just have to watch it to see!
With its pearl-coloured (recycled) spangles and the clever veil scrunch which conceals Miss Piggy’s otherwise very obtrusive ears, the joke is cleverer than many audience members may appreciate, because Westwood has actually delivered what every bride hopes for; a beautiful dress that gives the bride added allure.
When interviewed Miss Piggy says of Vivienne Westwood, ‘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.’
British designer Westwood spoke about the gown in the March issue of US Harper’s Bazaar. Read it here: Miss Piggy talks with Vivienne Westwood.
