Let’s be realistic: you’re probably not going to become a princess. What’s one of the next best things? Wearing the dress that Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa wore to the biggest wedding of the year, that’s what.
And now your wish has been granted. That bridesmaid’s dress, which received a crazy amount of buzz back in April, has become available to buy on Net-a-Porter.com. For now, the — deep breath — Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen’s silk-crepe ivory gown is available on the U.K. version of the site (but non-U.K. shoppers can still call to reserve) for a not cheap £980, which works out at about $1,500 (that said, the original was thought to be in the region of £20,000, which is $31,000). As for the all important details, it’s pretty much exactly the same as what she wore, apart from a zipper (rather than buttons) at the back. But it only seems to be available in red, which is similar to what Cameron Diaz wore to the 67th Golden Globes. Read more.
Justin Timberlake has admitted that he’s harbouring a massive crush on Pippa Middleton.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s little sister became an overnight sensation after being big sister Kate’s maid of honour at her wedding to Prince William in April. The Sexy Back singer said he can’t get enough of the siblings.
‘Us American males are big fans of Pippa,’ the 30-year-old told Esquire magazine.
‘We like the Middletons very much. I’m going to sound like a sleazeball. I’m going to stop right there.’
He also confessed that his career motivation has taken a dramatic shift in recent years.
‘There were times I was motivated by the fact I wanted to be the biggest music star in the world,’ he explained. Read more or take our who is hotter poll.
Carole Middleton must have taken her eyes off the ball. Or maybe she’s suffering from Dukan diet fatigue. Whatever the cause, the result may be dire: “friends” claim daughter Pippa is set to sign a book deal. Get in there, Carole, and put a stop to it, before the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister makes all you Middletons look like they’re milking their royal connections for all they’re worth.
The subject of the purported book – how to be the hostess with the mostest – is anodine enough; but it’s the thought that will count against Pippa (and her family). The Middletons run a party planning service and have done so for years. They’ve made a fortune out of party favours, paper plates and silly hats. They have cleverly kept such fripperies well away from the Firm they have joined, making sure in the run-up to Kate and Wills’s wedding that no one could accuse them of cashing in on the Great Occasion. Look up their site, and not even the “About Us” category boasts of their connections. The cattiest critics were silenced by this perfect clan: they handled themselves better than the Windsors, both in and out of the Abbey. Read more.
A replica of Pippa Middleton’s infamous bridesmaid dress has gone on sale at Debenhams today.
The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister stole the show at the Royal Wedding in the figure-hugging Alexander McQueen dress which catapulted her – and her bum- to fame.
Following the nuptials, on April 29 this year, high street stores raced to copy the Sarah Burton designs worn by Kate, 29, and 27-year-old Pippa.
However the department store’s version seems to be a very accurate copy, paying close attention to detail with the capped sleeves, cowl neck and silk buttons of the gown. Read more.
The Duchess of Cambridge has one of the most famous engagement rings in the world – so the pressure is on for Alex Loudon to choose an impressive rock worthy of her little sister.
And he seems to be up to the challenge.
The former England cricketer is apparently preparing to pop the question soon, taking the UK’s most eligible woman off the market. Very happy couple: Alex Loudon, Pippa Middleton’s long-term boyfriend, is apparently getting ready to pop the question
The 31-year-old has apparently asked one of his friends to look for engagement rings for him, out in the Cotswolds.
Loudon must have hoped that by avoiding the jewellery shops himself, he could avoid attracting too much attention. Read more.
It was the night that glamorous Pippa Middleton was swept off her feet – literally – by a mystery admirer.
Today the Mail can reveal him as upper crust children’s entertainer Charlie ‘Sharky’ Astor, who also happens to be an ex-boyfriend – and whose biggest claim to fame, until now, was being part of a record-breaking pantomime horse.
The 29-year-old Old Etonian apparently dated the Duchess of Cambridge’s younger sister three years ago but the relationship was said to be casual and didn’t run the course.
A well-placed source said: ‘They were an item about three years ago. The relationship was very much on a casual basis.’
The pair have remained in touch, however, because they move in the same social circles and are both in the events business. Read more.
