After years of trying her best, it looks like Miss Piggy has finally gotten the love of her life, Kermit the Frog, to the alter. Yes there's a wedding planned for everyone's favorite Muppets in their new movie, Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted.” The movie follows the Muppets on a star-studded tour throughout Europe where Miss Piggy thinks is the ultimate setting for the wedding of her dreams.

Designer Vivienne Westwood was commissioned to create all of the glorious outfits the diva and fashion icon wears in the movie, including a white dress that would be perfect for a wedding, if Piggy can gets the frog who's already a prince, to marry her. In the film, Miss Piggy wears a Vivienne Westwood couture Long Ivory Court wedding gown, with corset detailing and paillettes made from recycled plastic bottles, accessorised with an ivory tulle veil. “The dress is one of my favorite styles,” Westwood told Miss Piggy when the diva interviewed her for Harper's Bazaar Magazine. “It's called the Court dress and is inspired by 17th-century English royalty and the court of King Charles II. It has been designed especially for you in a white pearl sequin fabric made from recycled water bottles. It's the perfect choice for a royal sow.”

Westwood designed outfits in all, including a couture Harris Tweed houndstooth check coat and matching beret and a long silver hand-embroidered floral lace gown for a very special musical number in the movie.
