1. Miss Piggy
She's been dressed by Marc Jacobs and Prada and she's done Annie Hall. However, my favourite era for Miss Piggy remains the 1980s, especially The Muppets Take Manhattan. How I covet those little Piggy outfits (except the wedding dress - that should stay in the 80s).
Style advice from Miss Piggy? "Clothes are like friends: they should always complement your appearance."
I plan to see the new Muppet film this week and look forward to seeing Miss Piggy's wardrobe.
2. The women of Advanced Style
I work with the elderly and I often admire their style. I am full of respect for the octogenarian woman with umpteen medical problems who takes the time to put on her petticoat, stockings and lipstick (and get her hair done weekly). I have long loved Iris Apfel, self-proclaimed "geriatric star" and fellow specs-wearer. In the past couple of years I have discovered her contemporaries in Ari Seth Cohen's blog, Advanced Style. Their style is fearless and their advice is priceless. ("Always try and bring out your best feature and don't let anyone tell you that you don't have a best feature!") I can't wait for the book.
