It probably shouldn’t make sense that a puppet will be wearing expensive couture in a film. But Miss Piggy isn’t just any puppet. First of all, she’s a Muppet, and that’s a completely different tier of puppet. Secondly, she’s a fashion icon, so much so that Vivienne Westwood has designed all of her clothes for the film.
Entertainment Weekly has the scoop on the fashion news. According to the site, Miss Piggy will wear items like a houndstooth coat and a silver hand-embroidered lace gown. The showstopper is an extravagant wedding gown with corset detailing and huge tulle veil. Even though she’s wearing the gown, it’s not really known if she’s actually going to be getting married in it; part of the film will involve her hoping that she can finally tie the knot with her longtime love, Kermit the Frog. However, as we’ve already seen in many other films, Kermit seems to have cold feet when it comes to marriage. Perhaps it’s because they’re two different species and can’t really have children. That’s just my reading into it.
