Runway Looks Inspired By The Muppets...Really!

Fur was clearly a huge hit on the runway this season, ranging from fuzzy little jackets to wearable beasts that looked like they were hewn from the skins of a Snuffleupagus. Designers from Chris Benz to Alberta Ferretti seemed to have been inspired by our long-loved puppet pals from yore, sending out pieces that, while warm, might get you mistaken for an extra on The Muppets. We matched up some particularly hirsute looks to prove our point. Are we crazy or do you see the resemblance, too?
