InStyle, top New York designers were given the chance to dress Miss Piggy in their most lavish creations. Here, Piggy sports a feathery look by Jason Wu.
From what we've seen in the trailers, Piggy is even more stylish and sophisticated than usual in this latest "Muppets" flick. Her expert styling of long pearls and a classic tweed jacket (and jelly donut) gave this outfit a very Chanel vibe.
