It’s time to put on makeup, it’s time to dress up right! It’s time to look like the Muppets since the film comes out tonight. Yes, The Muppets hits theaters Wednesday, and while we’re super excited to see the film and have fun with Kermit, Piggy and the gang, we’re also excited about the plethora of fun products recently launched to celebrate our favorite fuzzy friends.
M.A.C Cosmetics is honoring the most stylish swine in showbiz with a limited-edition, online-exclusive collection for eyes (top left), which includes Miss Piggy Pink eye shadow ($15), Penultimate eyeliner in Rapidblack ($17.50) and fabulous fake lashes ($15).
Adidas Originals came up with a clever take on its classic Superstar shell-toe shoe (top right, $80), producing it in green suede with Kermit the Frog’s unmistakable collar over the tongue “in honor of the original hip-hop artist,” the brand writes on its site.
Opening Ceremony got in on the game early, launching T-shirts, sweatshirts, sweaters and dress shirts for men and women earlier this year all featuring our favorite characters: Piggy and Kermit, plus Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Animal. (bottom left, prices range from $45 to $230.)
Finally, there’s the super-fun OPI Muppets collection, with glimmering hues like the blue Gone Gonzo (bottom right), multi-colored Rainbow Connection, fuchsia Meep-Meep-Meep and deep berry Wocka Wocka (prices vary at salons nationwide.)
Miss Piggy, who appeared in a number of designer fashions in InStyle recently, tells PEOPLE she considers herself ahead of the fashion game. “I don’t want to name names like Lady Gaga or Sharon Osbourne or any of those people, but I will say this: moi is a trendsetter and I pretty much did everything that you see out there five years ago, at least.”
All joking aside, the actress “loved” all the couture she wore in the movie, including a dress by Zac Posen. “I had just a wonderful wardrobe,” she shares. And though beau Kermit isn’t quite as into fashion — “I don’t always wear clothing,” he tells BrooksBrothers.com — he still has sage style advice for his fans. “Wear what makes you smile and feel comfortable,” he advises. “When you find it, wear it with confidence … it’ll put a hop in your step.”
