I do think that Catherine is the best-looking of the Middletons, but I consider them a very attractive family. And although Catherine is prettier, she tends to be rather quiet; I have heard that Pippa is more outgoing.

Pippa's dress was probably the most flattering type she could have worn, but it wasn't very forgiving of any figure flaws, that's for sure. I hope all these women who are copying it take that into account!

I think that (for once) the press is showing a bit of discretion. In the flood of attention immediately following the wedding, the slightest peek into James' social life revealed photographs and other information from which one would infer he was gay. More scrutiny would mean more questions about his personal life that he might not want to discuss with the public. I think the press has kindly given him a bit of space. While it may not last, for now it's a good thing as he transitions into being a public figure in one capacity or another.

Also, I read that James and Pippa are keenly aware that the slightestest misstep can bring K alot of embarassment and they are making an effort to keep a low profile.

The media noticed people noticing her and decided we're all "crazy" about Pippa. I have nothing against her but there is zero mania over her. People thought she was pretty, attractive. That's all. There was a curiosity over the wedding but we moved on. It's a shame that the media decided to stalk out Kate's sister. But they're like sharks, once they smell blood they never let up. Her life is no different from when she was just the sister of the princes' girlfriend. The people making Pippa mania docs should just admit they're the ones obsessed over her.

Pippa definitely did not upstage Kate. It was her day and people paid attention to her. I think the only reason people went gaga over that dress is because if you look at the history of the bridesmaid dress at royal weddings, they are not very flattering. Kate purposely picked a dress that complemented the bride while at the same time was fitting for her sister. No one had seen a member of the bridal party look so normal and nice; usually they are wearing too many frills, lace and bows.
BTW I purposely was more impressed with James Middleton; Ima go to London and track that dude down. He also seems to have an actual appropriate tan, not over the top and not too orange; too bad he can't help his sister out with her tan.

Catherine's dress was dull in my eyes, it might have been a one of a kind Sarah Burton but it was boring, I looked at it and most of the time I could just see a white blur with some lace. Best part was the tiara. Pippa's dress was much more exciting.
People paid attention to Catherine and William because it was their day, but Pippa got the peoples attention for real and now she's the continuing talk of the town.

To those people saying that no one's interested in Pippa other than the press, I bought a handbag which Pippa was spotted with a couple of months ago. I never actually used it because the straps annoyed me so I just sold it on ebay. I was amazed to find that demand for it was huge and it sold for almost 3 times the price I paid for it.

So I can say without a shadow of doubt that there are plenty of people who are obsessed with Pippa.

Yeah Pippa's dress was so exciting, I especially was excited about it when I saw similar dresses like it at the Oscars, Emmy's, and on runways. A plain white dress with a V neckline; oh how exciting.

Some people like Pippa, some people don't. Isn't that the same with every person in the limelight? What exactly are people arguing about? A dress that Catherine picked out?

I thought the dress was the wrong color....I don't think anyone should wear white but the bride.

I think that at the end of the day no one knows who Pippa Middleton really is, so a lot of the feelings come from the media's portrayal/coverage of her. She is just living her life as she did before but suddenly her every move is reported on for no apparent reason. People can ignore the articles about her, but know they are still out there. I was reading People Magazine recently and on their "Star Tracks" page with candid pictures of celebrities, there was a photo of Pippa getting coffee! It was a serious WTH moment for me but I just moved on, she doesn't interest me (and she shouldn't, she's just a regular person). Personally, I think the "Pippa" frenzy is a simple creation of the media. Kind of like how I see the Kardashians: just kind of reported on for existing. That's not a slam at Pippa, it's a slam at the media and how silly this has all gotten.

I don't know why it didn't occur to me before, but Pippa Middleton bears an uncanny resemblence to the Dutchess of Windsor. It isn't that they look very alike feature for feature, but they have similar figures and body frames (though Pippa is taller), similar facial structure and head shape and the same hair color.

They both have an unquestionable allure that cannot be pinpointed and is quite beyond their looks.

Looking at Pippa's brides maid dress from the back with itscenter beading, it strikes me as a rather overt and delightfully cheeking homage to the Dutchess of Windsor.

Does anyone else see this?

I see nothing of the sort, and if Catherine picked a dress out to pay homage to Wallis then that is laughable.
Wallis probably shared/s the same body type/facial structure/head shape and certainly hair colour with millions of people around the world. You're linking these two people because they supposedly have an 'allure'?

Wallis is intriquing in a sense because she almost ruined the royal family, Pippa is becoming a topic of interest because of her behind. I see no connection.

What a strangely grumpy response.

When I said it was an hommage to her, I meant as a style icon. I saw an exhibition of some of Wallis's dresses, including her wedding dress, at the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art some years ago.

I'm not interested in her (Wallis's) imputed morals.

I do think that the combination of overall appearance and exceptional allure is strikingly similar in the two of them. The dresses also have some marked similarities that I find noteworthy.

You asked if anyone else saw this resemblance, I answered no, and explained why. It was a straightforward answer not a grumpy one.
