Aside from starring in an upcoming movie and being the "editor" of French Vogue, Miss Piggy has a few other future projects she's about to tackle. For starters, she'll be the face of M.A.C cosmetics come November—she's billed as "Icon. Actress. Supermodel. Chanteuse. Muse. Frog-o-phile. Cinema and television superstar nonpareil." In addition to that, she's slated to appear as a guest judge on Project Runway All Stars.
It's no surprise the fashion industry has a thing for Piggy, what with her over-the-top outfits and all, but did you know that modern-day academia is also weighing in? Curtin University Professor of Cultural Studies Jon Stratton tells the Ridge News: "There's this ongoing ambiguity, should we see Miss Piggy as the attractive creature she is convinced she is? Or should we see her as a pig that has a misguided fantasy that she is attractive?" Well, either way, she looked pretty good at this year's FNO.
