    Miss Piggy has emerged as the latest high profile TV and film character to bring attention to Harris Tweed.

    Hand-woven on the Western Isles, clothing made from the fabric has already been worn by Ben Affleck in spy film Argo and Matt Smith as Doctor Who.

    Vivienne Westwood designed the tweed outfit and other costumes Miss Piggy wears in the new Muppets movie.

    I can not think of another designer more suited to dress Miss Piggy.

    Great choice. Westwood has always made it a trademark f her collections to use strong, iconic British fabrics like tweed, tartan, and worsted wool. I've seen some lovely jackets in her shops, too - alas at the price of a bespoke three-piece in the shires...

    I read that Matt Smith's Doctor Who tweed jacket was actually made in China!

    That is fantastic. I feel like in the past few years, she's turned into kind of a fashion icon.
