It's a Swine of the Times!

(Image above: Just Jared)

  • While the recent swine flu epidemic is nothing to take lightly, we fear that it maybe giving certain pigs an undeserved bad rap.  Take, for example,  Miss Piggy. This sassy sow never ceases to inspire us! Her unapologetic gumption, shameless attitude, and cute frog boyfriend are enough to make any human girl inordinately jealous. But to be a glamor icon on top of all that? Whoa. Piggy has remained on our fashion radar ever since her ABC debut on October 13, 1974 . In the words of a true diva, she says, “There’s no denying that moi has always had an impeccable sense of style.” Inspired by this season’s re-visiting of 80s fashion, this clip is from 1982. We hope it helps you make it through your last stretch of the work week!
  • Don’t wear these heels out tonight!
  • It’s happened. Our uber-fashionable, super-savvy first lady has been made into a bobble head. Thoughts?

    I always thought Miss Piggy was cool. She was a big girl with an awesome fashion sense and made no bones about the fact that she is one tough lady!

    As for those 10 inch heels……who the hell would think it is a good idea to wear them?!

    Aww Miss Piggy! She is always elegant and ever so classy.

    Also, those McQueen heels are like something out of a dream (or a nightmare, depending on if you’re wearing them or just looking at them)
