So it’s official, the Miss Piggy for M.A.C. collaboration will be available in stores on November 14th (just in time for my birthday, for anyone who is buying me gifts).
The line includes a Miss Piggy Pink eyeshadow ($15), a Penultimate Eyeliner in RapidBlack ($17.50), and a fake Lash set ($15) for the ultimate glamour gal eye look.
Here’s the official interview that the Diva that is Miss Piggy gave M.A.C.:
Tell us about what it was like collaborating with M·A·C on a collection that captures
your iconic beauty look.
Oh I adore collaboration—especially when everyone is there to listen to what I have to say and do exactly
what I tell them to. And those fabulously talented people at M·A·C did just that. They were more than willing to
listen, learn and be inspired by moi, so they could get the pink eye shadow just right, the flutter of the
lashes just perfect, the texture of the eye liner just so. Best of all, they did all the work while I did all the talking!
What was it like working with James Gager, Senior Vice President and Creative Director,
and Jennifer Balbier, Senior Vice President for Global Product Development?
Ah yes, James and Jennifer…..Uh, what were those names again? Gager and Balbier? Sorry, not
ringing a bell. But if I met them and they were important, I love them and can’t wait to see them again.
You see, Jimmy and Jennie as I called them, seemed to understand moi’s very soul. And best of all,
they understood moi’s desire to make the collection worthy of comparison with other iconic M·A·C “diva”
collections (Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper’s Viva Glam campaigns and Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday)
while inevitably surpassing all of them.
Tell us about your typical beauty routine when you’re on set. Does it differ from
your every day beauty routine?
At home and on the set, my beauty routine is the same. I sit in a chair while a squadron of stylists,
manicurists, cosmetologists, hairologists and so forth hover around and make magic. Then, I open my eyes, look
in the mirror and voila…perfection! The advantage of doing this on set is that someone else pays for it.
How would you describe your style in your upcoming film, “The Muppets”?
I play an editor at Vogue Paris, so naturally I had to wear the most au courant couture and meet
all the top designers in the world. (Naturally, we hit it off like gangbusters. Trust moi, you haven’t partied til
you’ve ridden in a cab down the Champs-Élysées singing show tunes with a passel of Parisian designers!)
So, I would have to say that moi inspired designers who, in turn, designed clothes that captured the essense
of moi. It’s a win-win all the around, n’est ce-pas?
Any style advice for your fans? Can anyone wear the products from the Miss Piggy inspired
You can’t be moi, but this is the next best thing. This collection is perfect for any skin tone,
goes with any wardrobe choices…and will help vous find your personal style.
To moi, style is all about having fun! You are you! Go for it! Get glam! Have fun! Laugh in the
face of critics! Scoff at cynics! Chortle in front of rude people! You got it sister, so make the most of it!
That is what this collection is all about – celebrating the absolute joy of being vous, embellished
and enhanced by the magic of moi! (Ooh, that’s good. I should trademark that!)
And remember, true beauty comes from loving yourself.So go ahead: love yourself. And if that proves a problem, might I suggest loving moi?
