Miss Piggy is known for a lot of things, but she’s most notable for being the hot, sassy ex-girlfriend of Kermit “Kermie” the Frog. They were a power couple – she wore clothes, he did not. It was an exercise in opposites, and boy did they sure attract.
After the split, and after the premiere of the new Muppet show, Miss Piggy sat down with WWD to dish on all things Piggy. The most important thing she had to say had nothing to do with old loves or icon status – it had to do with beauty standards, fat-shaming and how body acceptance is the way to go.
“I believe that style comes in all sizes, and therefore the bigger you are, the more stylish you are,” she tells WWD. “So, whoever you are and whatever your size, love yourself for who you are. And if that doesn’t work out, love me for who I am.”
That’s a pretty cool statement coming from a fashion diva/pig that constantly has a full hand and arm up her butt. She owns her body, her style and she wants us to do the same. Cool move, Piggy.
Other things we we learned?
Miss Piggy swears by contouring.
“My biggest beauty secret is contouring. I believe in using whatever means necessary — makeup, lighting, special effects — to draw attention to my best features.”
Miss Piggy works with all the best designers.
Think Donna Karan, Vivienne Westwood, Zac Posen, Marc Jacobs, Jeremy Scott, Christian Louboutin and Brian Atwood.
“My clothes always make a statement, and that statement is usually: ‘Hey, look at me, I’m wearing something original, expensive…and I got the network to pay for it!'”
