New York Fashion Week: Miss Piggy’s Fashion Tips!

Miss Piggy

 

In honor of New York Fashion Week, Miss Piggy, a fabulous Fashion Icon, has agreed to an interview to share more about her new movie, The Muppets and also some fashion tips with you!

What is Disney’s “The Muppets” 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 Disney’s “The Muppets?”

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.

 

How does your life differ from the characters you portray on the big screen?

In real life, my wardrobe is much, much bigger and more expensive, but I’m a lot like what you see on the big screen. The camera does add a few pounds—when people meet me in person they’re always amazed at how svelte I am. Take my word for it.

 

What made you agree to star in Disney’s “The Muppets”?

It was written especially for moi. And they said I could keep all the shoes.

 

What is the funniest scene in the film?

The scene where Kermie begs me to come back to Hollywood with him is the funniest scene. I’m hilarious; and the frog isn’t half bad either. There are so many very funny scenes in the film… and guess what, moi is in all of them!  Coincidence? I don’t think so.

 

What was it like working opposite Jason Segel?

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.

 

…Amy Adams?

Amy and moi are so much alike, except for the fact that she’s been nominated for an Academy Award® THREE TIMES and I’ve gotten bupkis!   (Entres nous, I think they just don’t want to nominate anyone outside their species.)

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.

 

…Kermit?

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.

 

…Walter?

Walter is delightful! He worships the Muppets and especially moi. And as everyone knows, I absolutely adore being worshipped.

 

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 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.

 

Are you and Kermit together? 

Of course we’re together.  In the movie, we seem to be apart, but that’s just for dramatic tension. In real life, we’re fabulously happy and the longest-running interspecies couple in all of Hollywood.

 

Why should audiences see Disney’s “The Muppets”?

Because moi is in it!  What a silly question!

It is the best movie I have ever made…and therefore the best movie ever made. Other than that, it’s got a lot of laughs and you’ll have a good time. Are those enough reasons for you?

 

 

Since we are in Disney World right now, I had the chance to check out Miss piggy’s latest book, The Diva Code: Miss Piggy on Life, Love and 10,000 Idiotic Things Men Frogs Do.

Don’t forget, The Muppets will be in theaters on November 23rd!

I love my iPhone, but I’m on my 4th one. It’ a combination of having a toddler and myself being a bit clumsy.

There are rumors abound that a new iPhone 5 will be coming out, and while I’m not eligible for an upgrade, my husband is.  I’ll be ditching my iPhone 3GS and taking his iPhone 4 while he upgrades.

Since I’ll be getting the iPhone 4, I need a new case for myself so I don’t break yet another phone!

I’ve been browsing Amazon and in honor of The Muppets movie that I am SO excited about, I found some super cute cases for the iPhone 4!

I’ve got big news! HUGE news!

September is going to be a Disney filled month for me. Not only are we headed to Disney World NEXT week, but I am traveling to Hollywood!

 

I have been invited to Los Angeles to do some pretty exciting things. I can’t wait to share with you! I’ll be posting on Facebook, blogging and tweeting all about this amazing experience.

Disney and Dreamworks has some amazing things in store.

First up, we will be seeing the movie Real Steel starring Hugh Jackman and Evangeline Lilly.

Take a look at the final poster!

I can’t wait to see the movie!!

In addition to seeing the movie, we will be having interviews with Hugh Jackman, Boxing Consultant Sugar Ray Leonard and Director Shawn Levy.

 

You may know that I’m just a little excited about The Muppets movie coming out. I grew up with The Muppets and I have enjoyed watching my son discover the fun and silliness of The Muppets.

Not only do I love Kermit and Miss Piggy, I absolutely adore Jason Segel, who is one of the brains behind the latest Muppet movie. He truly loves the Muppets and I’m sure we will be able to tell when we see this fantastic film.

While in LA, we will get to tour Jim Henson Studios, which I can only describe will be a once in a lifetime opportunity!

After that, we will view select scenes from the upcoming Muppets movie and then have the opportunity to interview Jason Segel, Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.

(I’m squealing right now, if you’re wondering where that high pitched sound is coming from!)

 

I can’t wait to share more with you about these exciting films (don’t worry, no spoilers!) and this experience!

If you have any ideas for questions for the actors and Muppets ;-), let me know!

THE MUPPET Teaser One-Sheet

I was lucky enough to catch a sneak peek of the new Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides on Tuesday. The review will be appearing on my blog tomorrow!

One of my favorite things about the movie was the trailers beforehand!

We got a glimpse of the new Muppets movie, which is being released on November 23rd, 2011!

I am such a huge fan of the Muppets and I have eagerly been awaiting this movie! Add in Jason Segel and Amy Adams, two of my favorite actors and I’m really excited!

Here’s a synopsis of the newest Muppets movie!

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.
