The prissy Muppet known for her impeccable fashion sense and take-no-prisoners attitude, dropped by the Anderson show to promote the release of The Muppets DVD and Blu-Ray on March 20. Miss Piggy took full advantage of her time on the show by offering up fashion advice to the stoic TV journalist. 

What do you think of my look? asked Cooper, reffering to his typically conservative approach to fashion.

Yeah..., responded Miss Piggy. I actually tried to come up with a series of photos...[so that we could] show your various looks over the years...

You only have one look! said Miss Piggy in an accusatory tone, looking straight at the camera. She then proceeded to show Cooper in a Phil Donahue costume on Halloween. Miss Piggy quipped, You're wearing a wig and you still look the same!

Then Miss Piggy proceeded to reveal a surprise: An assistant brought out a tray of wigs for Cooper to try on. We have some more wigs heeyerrr, squealed Miss Piggy. She then prodded Cooper to wear them. She said, So try one on.

Cooper sized up each of the wigs, all of which were short cuts: one brown-colored blowback wig, one dense-blonde wig and one red wig, styled with a Justin Bieber-esque swoop. Cooper opted for the brown wig -- once his natural hair color.

This is what my hair color used to be like when I was a kid, said Cooper. This is what I looked like when I was a kid. Cooper asked the audience what they thought as he pursed his lips, briefly striking a pose for the camera. In my mind, when I look in the mirror I still have brown hair, he said as he reached to try on another wig.

For the interview, Miss Piggy is wearing her newer look as opposed to the Miss Piggy-look of yesteryear. Her beautiful nude-colored dress was set off by a pearl necklace and long, curly blond hair.

So who do you think has a better fashion sense?
