Will they or won’t they get married? That’s the question on everyone’s minds when it comes to the world-famous Muppets pair Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy. The couple has been together for decades, repeatedly professing their love for one another, yet Piggy has had to resort to trickery several times in the past in an effort to get Kermit down the aisle. In 1984’s Muppets Take Manhattan, the couple seemingly tied the knot, but it seems the union was invalidity due to it being yet another one of Piggy’s schemes.
For the upcoming film Muppets Most Wanted, Piggy commissioned a dress from famous designer Vivienne Westwood, whose creation can be used as a wedding gown if Piggy can get Kermit to finally say “I do” for real this time around.
Check out the photo here below of Miss Piggy in her beautiful couture wedding dress.
In Muppets Most Wanted, Kermit’s inamorata will be seen wearing a Vivienne Westwood couture Long Ivory Court wedding gown, with corset detailing and paillettes made from recycled plastic bottles, accessorized with an ivory tulle veil. (My everyday bag is made of recycled plastic bottles, so I’m digging this!). Westwood also designed a couture Harris Tweed houndstooth check coat and matching beret for Piggy for a scene set at Tower of London. Miss Piggy reportedly also chose a long silver hand-embroidered floral lace gown for a very special number in the film.
Here’s what Miss Piggy had to say about commissioning Westwood:
“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.”
Muppets Most Wanted, which stars Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey, as well as the Muppets gang, hits the big screen on March 21, 2014.
