Vivienne Westwood Designs Wedding Dress for Miss Piggy
I have always been a huge fan of Vivienne Westwood. Believe it or not, a few years ago I co-owned a designer fashion ecommerce site so I love keeping up with trends and designers. I am sure many of you have heard of Vivienne Westwood, I mean she did in fact design the iconic wedding dress for Carrie Bradshaw in the Sex and the City movie. Yes, I know, it was simply gorgeous and elaborate! Well, Miss Piggy apparently wooed Westwood enough to have a gown designed just for her. Will she marry Kermit in this gorgeous gown? We’ll have to wait and see! Oh, by the way, did you know I’ll be on the Muppets Most Wanted red carpet? That’s right, be sure you check out our red carpet announcement and all the other awesome events we are attending!
MISS PIGGY CALLS ON VIVIENNE WESTWOOD TO DESIGN KEY WARDROBE FOR THE ALL-NEW DISNEY FILM “MUPPETS MOST WANTED”
Vivienne Westwood Couture Wedding Dress Designed Exclusively for the Divine Diva
Will Kermit the Frog Finally Say “I Do”?
11th Feb 2014. At last! 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 favourite frog to tie the knot for years. But what will the divine diva don for the all-new film, which hits theatres in the US 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 paillettes made from recycled plastic bottles, accessorised with an ivory tulle veil. Piggy also entrusted the designer with additional looks for the film, including a Vivienne Westwood couture Harris Tweed houndstooth 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.
So the question on everyone’s lips remains: Will we see Miss Piggy marry her beloved Kermie in “Muppets Most Wanted,” and will she finally get to wear her dream Vivienne Westwood gown down the aisle?
“You’ll have to see the movie to find out,” insisted Miss Piggy.

The film stars Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon and Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard. Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” is directed by James Bobin and produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.
