You can have your stretch limousines, Escalades, Navigators, Yugos and other humdrum luxury vehicles; the true Hollywood elite know how to travel in style — fire trucks. Dressed to the nines in dress and shoes designed for her exclusively by Donna Karan, Miss Piggy elevated New York City’s night of fashion celebration with her arrival to the ‘DKNY Loves FDNY’ Fashion’s Night Out Event aboard FDNY’s L-11, a.k.a the ‘Lucky Eleven.’
The event at DKNY’s Madison Avenue store was to honor the New York Fire Department and celebrate the release of the 2013 FDNY Calendar of Heroes featuring 13 of New York’s Bravest. Joining Donna Karan, Miss Piggy and all of the firefighters featured in the calendar was photographer Patrick McMullan, who effortlessly assumed the role of the evening’s host.
Below is our gallery of photos from the evening’s festivities along with some video from the event. Click on any of the thumbnails to see a larger version.
All proceeds from the sale of the calendar, plus a percentage of sales from last night, go to benefit the FDNY Foundation.

Disney Channel has provided us with new stills from their upcoming episode of ‘So Random’ with special guest star, the original tantrum girl herself, Miss Piggy.
In the episode, which premieres this Sunday, October 2, at 7:30 pm ET/PT, the cast members of ‘So Random’ each try to convince Miss Piggy to appear in skits with their popular characters, such as MC Grammar and Taylor, but Piggy isn’t having any of it.
Eventually Piggy appears in a skit called ‘The Real Princesses of New Jersey’ in which she plays Rapunzel (or, ‘Punzel rather) and dishes the dirt with regal gal pals Cindy and Beauty.
Don’t forget to watch Miss Piggy in ‘So Random’ and see other skits such as ‘Holey Moley’ in which the Donut King and the Bagel King fight over which food tastes better. All that and more in an all new episode of ‘So Random’
