One Hot Pig: Miss Piggy Is Hot To Trot

I have never really been a Muppets fan, well except of the exquisite style of one Miss Piggy, and I am loving that InStyle US are celebrating her first on-screen appearance in 12 years with an eight-page spread.

Hitting newsstands on Friday, the November issue Miss Piggy editorial is filled with custom-made designs by the likes of Prabal Gurung (pictured above), Jason Wu (below), Brian Atwoood, Suno, Opening Ceremony, and Giles & Brother. I love the white Prabal Gurung design as it is a classic, and the signature Jason Wu feathers, but the one there I am most excited about seeing has to be Suno, I am expected a vibrant print dress.

What I found really funny when looking at WWD’s coverage of this editorial is that they called Miss Piggy a ‘plus size’ how crazy is that – she is a muppet for god sake!!

Also keep your eyes peeled to InStyle’s Facebook page as they are releasing a behind-the-scenes video of the shoot on there later in the week.

I so can’t wait to pick up my copy.

The movie which hits screens in November sees Miss Piggy playing a Paris Vogue fashion editor, and designers including Zac Posen and Christian Louboutin have made her costumes. Is that enough of a reason for me to go see it?? Sadly, it probably is!!!

Also I am super excited about the make-up movie tie-ins as well coming in November: the Miss Piggy for MAC make-up collection, which will only be available online, features eye shadow in Miss Piggy Pink, black eyeliner, and faux lashes; and then OPI have created 12 limited edition nail shades, six shimmery reds and neutrals, plus six glittery shades, sadly though only three of them are named after Miss Piggy – they are the best ones though!! My favourite being Gettin’ Miss Piggy With It! a flamboyant glittery red – a pure diva colour!!

Cover Loving: Diane Kruger Shines For InStyle UK

I thought September was supposed to bring all the fierce covers, well that memo clearly didn’t get to InStyle as they have gone all out for the October issue with the gorgeous Diane Kruger, and I LOVE it.

Celebrating its 10th birthday, I don’t know why I just thought that InStyle was older than that, they have styled Diane Kruger in a striking gold sequinned star beauty from Dolce & Gabbana. I know I am slightly bias when it comes to Diane, but I have to admit I am not a regular InStyle reader, I only really pick it up when the cover shouts at me, and this gorgeous cover certainly does that!!

The dress may look familiar as Beyonce worked a very similar dress for the September cover of the American version of InStyle. I do think though that Diane’s long-sleeved gold version works better for me.

Which cover do you prefer?
