For women of a certain age, Miss Piggy is something of an early fashion icon, introducing feather boas and French affectations to a generation of bungalow-dwelling suburban girls (like moi!).
Still, it’s unlikely that next year’s Muppet Movie, starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams, is anywhere remotely on your must-watch list. But you must watch!
Why? Because the Muppet Movie has, unexpectedly, become a fashion film. Segel and Adams play big time Muppets fans who are trying to reunite a gang that’s scattered to the four winds, with our swine heroine installed as editor-in-chief of French Vogue.
The question is, who will dress Miss Piggy? She’s already been photographed in Marc Jacobs and Chanel. Balenciaga maybe? Or Sonia Rykiel? Bien sur!
