Muppets’ New Nail Polish Is Just Plain Weird

muppetsLike Miley Cyrus missed the memo about wearing stilettos, I somehow missed the memo that the Muppets are fashionable. I get that Miss Piggy wears boas and huge diamonds and stuff, but the Muppets on the whole aren't known for their style, are they? I guess Fozzie has nice fur and all, and Gonzo looks dapper in a tie, but why oh why are the Muppets collaborating with exclusive store Opening Ceremony and launching a nail polish collection with OPI. Seriously, I want to know why.

Apparently, Miss Piggy will be on hand at the Ace Hotel in NYC (where the too-cool-for-school Opening Ceremony store is) to debut her collection during Fashion Night Out. Maybe we should all expect tutus and feathers and Mary Jane shoes and glitter from Miss P, but I'm just kind of confused as to why no one is admitting that Miss Piggy isn't real. She's a felt puppet with a man's fist up her ass. So who's designing this?

It gets weirder because now the Muppets have a nail polish collection. The Muppets movie comes out later this year, but why are they choosing fashion and beauty to promote the flick? "They" not being the Muppets of course, but the studio execs. Seems odd, no? I've never thought that the fashion crowd was particularly Muppet-happy, but I see now I'm wrong. Or, on the other hand, not in the fashion crowd.

Here are the Muppet nail colors for OPI that are coming out for the holidays, 2011.

Here we've got from left to right: Getting Piggy With It, Excuse Moi, Fresh Frog of Bel Air, Gone Gonzo.

"Getting Piggy With It" is clearly the best name in the group, and maybe the coolest color too, so that's my fave. But I'm still going to ignore this whole Muppets Take Fashion phenomenon because frankly, I don't get it.

Do you?
