Even though “Project Runway” just finished its ninth season, last night’s spinoff “Project Runway All Stars” revealed it still had a few new challenges up its sleeve: Enter oink couture. Contestants were challenged to create a flamboyant cocktail dress for none other than her Muppet Highness Miss Piggy to help promote her new movie “The Muppets.”
Along with Georgina Chapman and host Angela Lindvall, guest judges Eric Daman and the Muppet Diva herself took the All Stars to task with their creations—and you better believe they took dressing Miss Piggy very seriously.
“I feel like I really do understand Miss Piggy,” said designer Austin Scarlett. “I feel that in many ways we’re kindred spirits. I myself like to pepper my conversation with little French phrases the same way Miss Piggy does. Sometimes I refer to myself as moi.”
After the designs strutted down the runway, Miss Piggy had many fashion-forward questions and comments such as, “Can you hula hoop in that dress?” and “I love that dress. It looks like a present…a present for Kermie!”
But like any true diva, the blushing Muppet had to balance her lady-like behavior with at least one karate-chopping tantrum, and this time, it was aimed at fellow guest judge Eric Daman who kept poking fun at her ears. “Hi-yahh!!!” she screamed, slamming her hoof into Eric’s chest. “Stop it with all the pet remarks!!!”
In the end, designer Michael Costello took Miss Piggy’s breath away with his dark sophisticated strapless one piece adorned with an exaggerated bow and top hat—yes, the one that looked like a present for Kermie.
