The no-holds back Miss. Piggy has been making the rounds during NY Fashion Week (even making an appearance at the Opening Ceremony party at the Ace Hotel) ‘ spewing off her fabulous guide to life and talking about her role as a plus-size fashion editor of Vogue Paris in the new movie, The Muppets. This fashion icon and quite the confident pig (gotta love a gal that loves shopping and eating chocolate in her free time) recently shared her fashion secrets, life as a glamorous pigistia and some insider info about this long-awaited film.
You are a fashion icon. What is your secret?
I have a few fashion secrets:
- Never wear anything that requires a hoist to get into.
- There is no such thing as too much accessorizing.
- If it’s expensive, it fits.
- Style comes in all shapes and sizes. Therefore, the bigger you are, the more style you have.
What is The Muppets movie about?
It’s moi’s story, of course. It’s about how I am working in Paris and Kermit and the other Muppets come over and beg me to come home. I run the complete gamut of acting’from smiling to frowning. It’s got Oscar written all over it’and I’m not just talking de La Renta. I have heard rumors that there’s another storyline in the movie that doesn’t involve moi, but who really cares about that?
What is your role in the movie?
Moi plays moi. It’s a casting no-brainer. Naturally, all of Hollywood’s top actresses tested for the part’Roberts, Streep, Winslet, Jolie, Bullock’but in the end they decided that there is only one moi and I’m it!
In the movie, I portray the plus-size fashion editor of Vogue Paris‘I’m in charge of a whole office full of editors who all want to look just like moi. But of course, Kermit wants me back with the Muppets to save the day and put on some big show. Can I resist? Well, see the movie and find out.
Tell us about your co-stars – Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Kermit?
Jason is a sweet, sweet man’¦ and a very funny comedic actor. Of course, when I heard he wrote the movie and could write my part even bigger, we became best friends forever.
There was a little tension at first, but once Amy learned about not touching the frog, we became fast friends. We hang together whenever we’re in the same city, which up to now has been’¦ let’s see’¦ never.
What can I say about Kermie and moi? Separately we’re fabulous and together we are absolute legends‘like Astaire & Rogers, Tracy & Hepburn, Oprah & Stedman.
What do you do in your free time?
Shop. Eat Chocolate. Pose for photographers. Rinse. Repeat. I’m a diva. I have people to schedule my free time. You have no idea how time consuming that is.
