OK, hands up who is a fan of Miss Piggy, what’s not to love she has great fashion sense, do you remember her shoot with InStyle a few years ago, and her looks in the Muppets movie as a fashion editor were impeccable, well she is topping all that with this preview of her up-coming flick wearing a Vivienne Westwood Couture wedding gown.

I am sure you are screaming with glee that it looks like Miss Piggy is finally getting Kermit down the aisle, but can we just focus for a second on that amazing custom gown – I am not going to lie I am a little a jealous, I don’t think this bride-to-be can out-do that!!!

Any bride-to-be knows that Vivienne Westwood makes a great bridal gown but Miss Piggy’s is a beauty, oh and it’s eco-friendly as the corset detailing and paillettes on the Long Ivory Court wedding gown are made from recycled plastic bottles. Finishing of the diva’s look is a gorgeous ivory tulle veil and some striking bling around her neck.

Admit it – you are a little jealous as well!!!

My Style: When Only Jeans, A Cute Tee And Chanel Will Do

MuppetsStyle3 My Style: When Only Jeans, A Cute Tee And Chanel Will Do %tag

I still get very uneasy about sharing style posts, mainly because I don’t think I have that many clothes so there maybe a lot of repetition, secondly I am not as comfortable in my body as I used to be, which I am totally working on at the gym, and lastly I just think my dress sense is more about comfort and what I like, than trends and style.

One of my main wardrobe staples has to be jeans. I own a lot of pairs, some which don’t fit any more yet I hold on to them in hope that one day they’ll fasten up, others are reserved for weekend use only, some have no place outside the home but are comfortable as hell, and then there are my top flight jeans that make me feel amazing *and slim* – these Gap Long & Lean beauties are one of those pair.

I have to admit I haven’t had them long, I bought them in a Gap outlet because they were ridiculously cheap, and I am completely in love with them. I sometimes have a problem getting jeans long enough as I have a 33 inch inside leg and to wear with heeled boots they need to be extra long – these ones from Gap are perfect. Not only is the length excellent, I also adore the shape of these boot-cuts, and the dark distressed colouring is the perfect slimming trick – I feel that these jeans make me look taller and slimmer *I know it is all in my head* and I feel great wearing them.

Well when you’ve found the perfect pair of jeans it is only fair and right to team them with a funky tee and today’s choice is my new Muppets ‘Dr Teeth and the Electric Mayhem’ one. What I love other than the fact it is the Muppets and it has a vintage vibe to it, has to be the slouchy neckline, which drops nicely off one-shoulder. Stylish, comfortable with a touch of quirkiness – perfect for me.

Finishing off my look are my amazing Chanel sunglasses – they totally make you wish for sun all year round!!!

Movie Review: The Muppets – Kermit and Miss Piggy Rock

muppetsfilms4 Movie Review: The Muppets   Kermit and Miss Piggy Rock %tag

There is a charm about the Muppets that just instantly makes me smile. OK for sure there is a cheesiness about Kermit and the gang, but surely that is what totally makes the franchise adorable, and has made kids and adults a like excited for their return to the big screen.

What I loved about this flick is that Disney came right out and said it the Muppets are nobodies, with the troupe all disbanded, Kermit and Miss Piggy separated and their theatre crumbling away – they leave it to Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary played by Jason Segel and his girlfriend played by Amy Adams to rally the gang, stage the greatest Muppet Telethon ever, oh and save the day from an oil tycoon destroying the Muppets theatre.

No one said the story had to be complex, it is the simplicity that makes it work, and I loved that it was packed full of singing and dance numbers, a touch of adult humour, great celebrity cameos from the likes of Jack Black, Whoopi Goldberg and Mickey Rooney, and most of all the off-beat comedy that the Muppets are best known for.

My favourite scenes had to be the trip down memory lane introducing all the Muppets to a new audience with the road trip, from picking up Fozzie who now performs at a Reno casino; Gonzo who is a high-powered plumbing businessman; and the best bit is when they discover Miss Piggy as a fashion editor for Paris Vogue with Emily Blunt as her secretary, a nod to her role in The Devil Wears Prada – completely genius.

The Muppets hits cinemas today, and trust me if you don’t leave the theatre smiling there is seriously something wrong with you.

Muppets: Spirithoods Fun – This Time With BunniPunch

MuppetsSpirithood1 Muppets: Spirithoods Fun   This Time With BunniPunch %tag

A couple of weeks ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a special screening of the much-anticipated Muppets movie and was introduced to all the fab fashion, accessories, beauty and toy collaborations that are coming out to celebrate the film.

One of my favourites, that instantly caught my attention were the Muppets inspired head-gear from Spirithoods, and of course I couldn’t resist trying them all on, oh and roping my fellow-blogging pal Lois of BunniPunch!!!

My favourite has to be the very glamorous light pink Miss Piggy hood complete with a pearl chain and leopard print detailing. But I have to admit I have a soft spot for the main muppet himself Kermit the Frog, I love that his eyes are the ears – so cute. I also love that their faces are on the paws – want one.

Not really into furry head-gear? Well the Muppets have inspired a lot of fashion ranges – from retro Junk Food t-shirts, jewellery charms from Thomas Sabo, and funky Birkenstocks; and even Miss Piggy has her own beauty collections with MAC and OPI. Seriously something for everyone – want to see more check out Star Stylin’ with Miss Piggy:

**Thanks to Lois for snapping the pics of me, oh and humoring my over-excited nature when it comes to the quirky furry head-gear.**
