Fashion Inspiration: Mary from The Muppets


Photo Credit

The world’s most loveable and laughable puppets recently made a comeback to the big screen in the Disney film The Muppets. The film follows two brothers, one who’s actually the newest Muppet, as they go on an adventure to California and find themselves trying to save the world-famous Muppet theater. All of the favorites from Miss Piggy to Kermit are along for the ride, making the movie one enjoyed by viewers of all ages.

In the movie, Amy Adams plays Mary, an elementary school teacher and the girlfriend of Gary, played by Jason Segel. Because of her feminine aesthetic, Mary is a fun source of fashion inspiration. Her ’50s-inspired looks are always polished and pretty, but still super fun to wear in the spring and summer. Below, I’ve created a series of outfits inspired by her character. Scroll down to view them all!

Check, Please!

Mary loves to wear various prints and patterns throughout the movie, so snag her signature look in a gingham-print halter dress with a pair of patent-leather pumps in a neutral tone. A brightly colored cardigan adds a fun vibe, while pearl stud earrings keep things classic.

    This is very cute. I haven’t seen the movie though, so I would have loved to see some more photos of the character.

    Good work though.
