Big Bird in Fashion

Big Bird's Influence Spreads From Politics to Fashion

Was Céline making a stand for Big Bird when creative director Phoebe Philo sent her fluffy yellow heels down the runway? Probably not, but we are. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama may be duking it out over national funding for PBS, thus fueling a national controversy over the future of beloved PBS show Sesame Street, but we know we are firmly in support of the show and its stars — namely, Big Bird. What's not to love about Big Bird's yellow feathered look? It's as bright and sunny as the big bird himself. It's been a while since we turned on Sesame Street, and while it's not likely to find a spot in our DVR queue, we're totally ready to add some yellow to our look in support of one of our favorite Muppets.
