Miss Piggy is back on the big screen, starring in Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted, which follows the Muppets on a grand, star-studded tour throughout Europe. The European setting screamed romance to Miss Piggy, who’s been trying to convince her favorite frog to tie the knot for years. But what will the divine diva don for the all-new film, which hits theaters on 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 — if one should actually take place.
‘Vivienne Westwood is fabulous — just like moi,’ said Miss Piggy. ‘When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit iffy about it was the Frog.’
In the film, Miss Piggy wears a Vivienne Westwood couture Long Ivory Court wedding gown, with corset detailing and palettes made from recycled plastic bottles, accessorized with an ivory tulle veil. Piggy also entrusted the designer with additional looks for the film, including a Vivienne Westwood couture Harris Tweed hounds-tooth 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.
An exclusive Q&A with Vivienne Westwood about designing this gown is available in the March issue of Harpers’ Bazaar.
