Miss Piggy Gets Instyle

Lindsey Wixson's not the only one who can get custom Jason Wu without paying for it.

From a minor character on The Muppet Show to one of Fashion's Night Out's biggest celebrities, Miss Lorelei Piggy is proof that some girls pigs really are destined for stardom. Miss Piggy, who plays a French Vogue editor in the upcoming Muppets film, has now landed an eight-page spread in InStyle's November issue. Wearing custom designed pieces by Jason Wu, Prabal Gurung, Suno, Brian Atwood, Giles & Brother and, of course, Opening Ceremony, she also quashes the belief that curvy girls can't wear extravagant textures, puffy sleeves or footwear with ankle straps. On the contrary, all the outfits were designed to compliment Miss Piggy's unique figure and her unique personality. "I didn't want to dress Miss Piggy in anything that would take away from her bold personality, so I went with a simple, classic dress and neutral colour," Gurung told WWD. And Wu's empire waist feathered design was chosen to compliment not only her figure but her "humour, flamboyance and joie de vivre".

Like most success stories, Miss Piggy's rise to the top didn't happen overnight. She's been hoofing her way to stardom since the seventies, snagging more and more minutes of screen time on each episode of The Muppet Show before stealing the spotlight from Dolly Parton on her musical variety show Dolly in 1987 and, more recently, singing with the Jonas Brothers and Ashley Tisdale from High School Musical.

She's learnt a few tricks of the trade, however. "Style is about expressing your inner self, capturing your personal ethos and, most importantly, spending someone else's money." Touche.

I also think it's about time that her signature exercise routine was given a 2011 revival (who else is over Bikram Yoga?):
