Piggy, currently playing a French fashion editor in the new Muppets movie, must have called in a favour from Marc Jacobs. She befriended the Vuitton designer during a New York Fashion Week re-see last spring (of course).
For her duties hosting The Orange BAFTA Red Carpet Show this Sunday, Piggy will wear a 50s-inspired gown based on the feminine designs from Vuittons And God Created Woman collection of autumn-winter 2010.
The blush silk tulle dress features a ruched bodice, tiered skirt and sequinned flower embellishment at the fitted waist, much like the gown that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley wore in the A/W 10 catwalk show.
Moi on the Red Carpet at the BAFTAs wearing Louis Vuitton designed by my dear friend Marc Jacobs, Piggy exclaimed in a statement. We have a word for that in Hollywood: Va-va-va-voom.
We sense a contender for BAFTA best-dressed... Ladies, consider the ante upped.
