Miss Piggy's Vivienne Westwood wedding dress from Muppets Most Wanted...

Forget royal weddings and Kardashian cash ins, the wedding of the century finally happens in Muppets Most Wanted, that of 'Miss Piggy' and her significant other, 'Kermit the Frog'. Or does it? In the follow up movie to the 2011 big screen revival of Jim Henson's The Muppets, Kermit finds himself imprisoned and impersonated by his lookalike, the criminal mastermind 'Constantine', who looks exactly like the leader of our merry band of Muppets, aside from a birthmark on his face.

Photographed on March 21, 2014 at the El Capitan Theatre along Hollywood Boulevard, as well as currently exhibiting Miss Piggy's spectacular wedding dress from the movie, the venue is also displaying more authentic costumes and props featured in this international comedy crime caper until April 17, 2014.

The Costume Designer on Muppets Most Wanted is Rahel Afiley, but it was queen of punk Vivienne Westwood who actually designed Miss Piggy's high fashion wedding gown for her big day, which is called the 'Court dress' as it's inspired by 17 century English royalty and the court of King Charles II.

The ivory couture gown, complete with corset detailing and a tulle veil, is made from a white pearl sequin fabric, apparently made from recycled water bottles. So not only is the infamous style icon on trend, but she's environmentally-friendly too.

To see more cool outfits from their latest big screen adventure, be sure to take a look at Ty Burrell's Interpol inspector costume and Le Maximum car from Muppets Most Wanted on display at ArcLight Sherman Oaks cinema.

Here's a bit of trivia (and a spoiler), but Miss Piggy's engagement ring is actually a bomb in disguise given to her by the fake Kermit, Constantine, and the necklace featured although impressive doesn't seem to be the one worn in the movie.
