Put lipstick on a pig and she’s still a pig, but dress her in the designs from folks such as Opening Ceremony, Suno, Brian Atwood, Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung and Giles & Brothers and what you have is tres magnifique.

Miss Piggy takes center stage in the November 2011 issue of InStyle magazine and we are fortunate to be able to share scans from the pages with you thanks to our friends at Walt Disney Studios and Muppet Studios. The spread also includes an interview with Miss Piggy as well as some fashion tips which we could all learn a thing or two from.

MeetTheMuppets.com Offers Interactive Muppety Goodness

MeetTheMuppets.comAlthough it’s intended for the UK market, with a little assistance from Google Translate, it’s fairly easy to navigate this self-proclaimed ‘The Muppets Zoom Poster‘ which takes the quad poster into a whole new realm with interactivity. Although you can’t zoom in too high a resolution on the poster itself, clicking on one of the characters offers the opportunity to check out a bio of each (although nothing more than we’ve already revealed here and here), hi-res wallpaper downloads, audio soundbites, video and even more.

'The Muppets' One-Sheet FinalA new trailer for Disney’s The Muppets has been released online, this one revealing quite a bit more of the supporting elements to the film’s main plot.

Other highlights include a bit more of the Moopets (namely Foozie Bear and Miss Poog) and a touching rendition of Cee Lo Green’s ‘Forget You’ by Camilla and the chickens (as available on the soundtrack).

‘The Muppets’ Official Character Descriptions Continued (Minor Spoilers)

'The Muppets' One-Sheet FinalAbout a month ago, Walt Disney Studios and Muppet Studios provided us with a list of official character descriptions for the upcoming comedy, The Muppets, starring The Muppets (plus Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, et al.). The official list has now been updated and expanded on to include additional characters.

And here — as the theme to ‘Gilligan’s Island’ might say — is the rest:

no images were found

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.

‘The Muppets’ Official Character Descriptions (Minor Spoilers)

'The Muppets' One-Sheet FinalWalt Disney Studios has provided us with this list of character descriptions and brief quotations from the cast of Disney’s The Muppets, which opens in theaters nationwide on November 23, 2011.

GARY (Jason Segel) is loyal to his brother Walter—the two do everything together. “Gary is from Smalltown, USA,” says Jason Segel (TV’s “How I Met Your Mother,” Forgetting Sarah Marshall), a longtime Muppet fan who created the role with himself in mind. “He’s very naïve, sweet and innocent, and he’s very much in love with his girlfriend Mary. He’s torn between his brother and growing into a new phase of maturation where it’s time to be with his girlfriend. He’s lived with his brother forever so that is his big struggle.”

Photos/Videos: Disney Delivers Princesses, ‘Pan Am’ and Muppets to Fashion’s Night Out

no images were found

With exception to the Fashion Week-long ‘In-Flight Experience‘ from ABC’s ‘Pan Am’ which we shared yesterday, last night’s epic third annual Fashion’s Night Out event had me running cabbing uptown and downtown, east side and west side throughout Manhattan in an attempt to catch everything I could Disney. From Disney Store, who participated for the first time, to Lisa Perry hosting ‘Pan Am’ to Opening Ceremony’s Muppet X collection with Miss Piggy, it was all one huge thrill ride of ‘E Ticket’ proportions (bad airline/Disney theme park double entendre-intended).
