28th March. Pop it in your diaries folks. It’s a big’un. It is the day that the latest Muppets movie Muppets Most Wanted lands in the UK. The new film follows the Muppets on a grand tour throughout Europe with the usual star-studded list of cameos throughout.

The big question on everyone’s lips is will one of the most glamorous heroines on our screens to date, finally tie the knot with her greener than green hero? We’ve witnessed Carrie and Big exchange vows, Rachel and Ross get engaged, surely Miss Piggy and Kermit would be the icing on the cake for romantics the world over!

Of course no leading lady’s feature film experience would be complete without her dream designer on board to ensure so looks motion picture fabulous in every scene. And sure enough fashion superstar Vivienne Westwood has been commissioned to create couture designs for Miss Piggy, including a beautiful white dress that would be simply perfect for that longed-for wedding. Now we don’t want to jinx it. We know from the frst Sex And The City movie that a Vivienne Westwood wedding dress is almost a precursor to things going awry, though we can’t see Miss Piggy doing a Carrie and actually getting married in a non-desssignersuit she picked up in a charity shop. Purleaaase!

Miss Piggy, of course, is no stranger to donning the designs of top designers. We all remember that show-stopper of a Louis Vouitton gown she donned in her presenting stint for the 2012 BAFTAs. Of her latest designer friend, Miss Piggy said ‘Vivienne Westwood is fabulous – just like moi. When I asked her to design this wedding dress for moi’s new movie Muppets Most Wanted, she was thrilled and I was thrilled. The only one a bit ‘iffy’ about it was the frog’.

The gown itself is the coveted Vivienne Westwood couture Long Ivory Court wedding dress, with corset detailing and paillettes made from recycled plastic bottles, accessorised with an ivory tulle veil. Additional Westwood looks for the film include a couture Harris Tweed houdstooth check coat and matching beret that Miss Piggy wears in a scene at the Tower of London. A very special moment in the film also sees Miss Piggy wearing a long silver hand-embroidered floral lace gown.

Vivienne Westwood Gold Label, Bridal & Red Carpet Collection is available from Vivienne Westwood, 6 Davies Street, Mayfair, London, W1K 3DN, www.viviennewestwood.com.
