NEW YORK — Heatherette’s fall collection was called “Living Dolls,” so it seemed a suitable gesture to have Miss Piggy seated in the front row at their show on Friday. WWD caught up with the Muppet over the weekend to find out her take on fashion, Heatherette and Hollywood.
WWD: Did you like Heatherette?
Miss Piggy: The Heatherette show was dazzling, original and drop-dead gorgeous…and that was just moi walking into the room. I thought those clothes were pretty fabulous, too.
WWD: What was your favorite outfit?
M.P.: I adore the sense of playfulness in the Heatherette fashions; it so compliments moi’s naturally ebullient playfulosity. But it wouldn’t be fair to choose a favorite based on what I saw fleetingly on the runway. I’m waiting till they send me some free samples to make my choice.
WWD: Do you have a lot of Heatherette clothes in your closet?
M.P.: Of course! And if those darling fashionistas at Heatherette are reading this artfully concealed product mention, I’m quite sure I’ll soon have lots more of their clothes in my closet.
WWD: Was this your first fashion show?
M.P.: Moi’s first fashion show? Oh surely vous jest! I have always admired WWD’s wit and style, and the way the ink doesn’t rub off on your hands. No, this is not my first fashion show. Moi has been attending these shows since I was an 18-year-old ingénue. So I’ve been about three years.
WWD: Who are your favorite designers?
M.P.: Well, in addition to Heatherette (who, if I mention them one more time, will have to put moi’s picture on their label), I also adore Prada and, naturallemente, the work of moi’s close personal friend, Jeremy Scott. Jeremy has made several exclusive creations just for moi. He claims moi is his muse. I’m not sure what that means, but if it gets me free dresses, I’m all for it.
WWD: Did you go out and celebrate with Richie and Traver after the show?
M.P.: Oh yes, Richie, Traver and moi went to Glow. We danced the night away — frolicking and celebrating till dawn. The last I saw them we were all dancing the merengue in Union Square with two cab drivers who claimed to be ex-Rockettes. Moi adores New York!
WWD: Who is your favorite Hollywood fashion inspiration — dead or alive — and why?
M.P.: Moi’s favorite Hollywood fashion inspiration is moi. And I’m alive. I don’t ask why…good genes, I guess.
