Whatever Pippa is, she is not royal and I certainly hope that she has better things to do than wait for her Prince charming. Although now that her sister is married to the heir to the heir she will not have to wait very long, eligible young men will come flocking if I am not mistaken.

I think we all know that she isn't royal, so why make a point about it?
Just because her sister is married that means guys are going to flock to her? Don't think you know men very well.

Just a question-I have seen Pippa threads under BRF thread and now in the news. Wouldnt it be simpler to have her under Duchess of Cambridge family as a sub-thread? Similar to Princess Diana's siblings.

Which Pippa threads are in the BRF section?
And it's Diana, Princess of Wales.

I do not consider her oufit worn at this wedding "faux-pas",it is very appropriate for this season of the year and the green colour suits Pippa perfectly,here she is more modest ,but I wonder if they did expect Pippa to wear every time dresses alike that one worn at her sister's wedding.

Yuk I am not a green fan and this is not a good look on her IMO. The hat is nasty.

No, wearing green is not a faux- pas, but... there is a right way, and a wrong way...
Note to Pippa:
Look at a photo of Princess Di at the wedding of Lady Helen Taylor.
THAT is how to wear green at a wedding.
Your green outfit is ugly. Shove it to the back of your closet, and wear purple and black more often!

You mean this horrible oufit? Pippa looks stunning, and miles better than Lady Di.

Besides this,there is no sense to compare Lady Di and Pippa,they are very different by their type of beauty,complexion and style.

Yup..... I guess we can agree to disagree!
@ Leanora- Sorry, I am always telling people not to compare Di to the Middletons... I should have bit my tounge. But I wasn't really trying to compare them... just showing, IMO, a more stylish way of wearing the color green!

It's not a faux-pas imo....just ugly and unflattering.

The suggestion that Pippa approaches anything close to the elegance of the late Princess of Wales makes me choke on my fruit juice!

Probably not as well as you do. But then perhaps I know more about upper class men.

There's an old superstition that it's bad luck to wear green at a wedding, but I think it's dying out! At least I hope so!

(Along with it not being permisable to wear black or white! I mean, there are only so many colors, what is a person supposed to wear?)

I think Pippa looks nice, although other outfits she's worn have been more flattering for her.

I'm not sure if it's the same magazine, but I recently read People Magazine's "Kate's Style Secrets" special edition and was surprised that when I came to the section on Pippa's style, I really liked some of the things she's worn. I think she has cute dresses and outfits. Now I'm not going to rush out and replicate her stuff, but if I just saw someone like her her walking down the street, I would definitely think she dresses nice. At weddings though, she tends to wear some pretty strange things on her head...her black hat looks like it has some chopsticks attached!

I hadn't heard about not wearing green at a wedding. Come to think of it, I wore teal at my sister's wedding and green at my brothers. Ooops! I think that this shade of green doesn't look good on Pippa and she needed a slip under it. I don't like her shoes and think that they look too heavy for the dress. I could be okay with the hat if the rest of the outfit looked better. However, I suppose that if she looked FANTASTIC she'd be accused of trying to out-do the bride.

Green is supposedly an unlucky color at weddings, if you're superstitious, but my sister had deep green velvet gowns for her bridesmaids and she's married 30 years, so go figure. And if I see one more butt shot of Pippa, I'll scream! Why don't they just draw an arrow and point it at her derriere to continually make their point clear? I feel sorry for her knowing that pictures like that can wind up in the newspapers every time she's out.

Pippa Middleton joined Peaches Geldof and Rosario Dawson at the Temperley fashion show tonight to watch the designer unveil her collection at the British Museum.
Pippa's arrival caused a flurry of flashbulbs and palpable excitement as the crowd craned their necks for a glimpse of the Duchess of Cambridge's sister.

Wearing a cream and black mini dress she had collected from the Temperley store earlier that day, Pippa was groomed to perfection with glossy curls and immaculate make up (in the same kohl-rimmed style favoured by sister Kate).
