Miss Piggy's Style Evolution from the 1970s to Now

Miss Piggy is poised to make her silver screen comeback this November in the latest (and long overdue) Muppet movie. Some big fashion names are attached to the film, too (in which she plays a Vogue Paris editrix)--Zac Posen and Louboutin made her costumes. Like any good star plugging a new film, she's been all over the place lately. She appeared at Opening Ceremony in NYC during Fashion's Night Out. Last week Lifetime announced she'd be a judge on Project Runway All Stars, and a few days ago there was an unconfirmed rumor sweeping the internet that she was the new face of MAC. Miss Piggy has always owned her sometimes over-the-top style and her zaftig proportions since she first hit the scene in the mid-1970s. And she looks pretty damn good for a lady who's been in showbiz for 40 years. (Though it's fairly obvious that she's had a nip and tuck here and there). Miss Piggy loves fashion, and she's gone through the same bad trends we have. She's done Farrah Fawcett hair, perms, the Rachel, and even gone brunette. Click through to see how Miss Piggy's style has evolved through the years. Just don't make fun of her--she's been known to hurl frogs through a window.
