Do Muppets have dreams? Of course they do. Are these dreams ever realized? Most of the time - no. The fact of the matter is that there's always some jewel thief, theater owner or fast-food-frog-leg franchisor looking to crush the aspirations of our lovable gang of furry misfits.
So when I came across these photos today, I was simply ecstatic. Miss Piggy's dream of becoming a "high-fashion model" - which began in 1981's The Great Muppet Caper - is now a reality! And although sadly Lady Holiday isn't involved in this venture, Piggy's still in good hands with the quirky and ab-tastic Marc Jacobs.
Everyone's favorite Muppet diva met with MJ at his SoHo design studio in NYC to discuss her couture options for Fashion Week. Naturally.
I absolutely love these photos, and I find no shame in that whatsoever. Anything that helps the Muppets get back in the spotlight (without acting alongside Ashanti) is a-okay in my book. And being a graduate of Fashion College, I'm very pleased to see that designers are starting to embrace...how you say? Oh yes...FUN. Thanks, Marc!
Of course it's also worth noting that Miss Piggy has already been making her way back onto the celebrity scene! Who could forget her appearance on 30 Rock? Certainly not me. She's the only one I could agree with besting Jenna Maroney on the red carpet. Muppets forever!
