The Muppets Movie UK Premiere

Thurs 26 Jan saw the red carpet UK premiere of the long awaited new Muppets movie at the Mayfair Hotel. It’s hard to believe that it has been 11 years since the Muppet’s last big screen feature film especially as they don’t appear to have aged at all! And it isn’t just their youthful looks which have stayed fresh, but their jokes and one liners too - this is truly a LOL kind of movie

The ever youthful Miss Piggy was of course the Star attraction and looked dazzling in a silver leather dress embroidered with Swarovski Elements which was designed exclusively for her silver screen premiere by Giles Deacon. Deacon took his inspiration for the hand cut leather fringed dress from his SS12 catwalk collection.
The leather dress was a juxtapose of demure and sexy, a high neck  Peter Pan collar with laser cut detailing iwas sweet and innocent whilst the floor length fringes teasingly gave glimpses of Miss Piggy’s shapely legs as she sashayed.
Giles was there at the premier to walk Miss Piggy down the red carpet. Kermit did look a bit green with envy.
