The Original It Girl: Miss Piggy

Miss Piggy is the original It Girl. She's a diva, a fashion maven, a beauty queen.

My sister idolized her as a kid. Not Barbie; Miss Piggy. She treasured a Miss Piggy paper doll with the most fabulous outfits. Knowing the high-spirited, willful, popular, crazy, and always stylish person my sister turned out to be, I'm confident in concluding that Miss Piggy was a defining influence on who she is today.

Today's It Girls pale in comparison to Miss Piggy. To prove my point, let's take a photographic journey through the been-there-done-that years with the original It Girl: Miss Piggy. kissy, kissy.

She wears couture. How amazing is this outfit?

She's seen at movie premieres, on red carpets, and front row at fashion week. She dates a celebrity.

She has a stamp and a perfume.

She's been on the cover of Life and posed for Playboy. She's been interviewed by the BBC.

She knows rock stars.

She's had a nose job and she self tans.

And she's been in jail.
