Maybe they are not photographed together a lot because Alex doesn't care for the press. Can't say that I blame him.

How come this tread is not in the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge section like the rest of the Middleton? Or like the siblings and family of any royal spouse who married to Prince and Princess?

Possibly because there is far more interest in Pippa than in other siblings of royal spouses?

I've read that the Middletons themselves were shocked at the media attention Pippa generated and still haven't adjusted to it. I suppose they thought it would fade after the wedding.
Maybe it will die down once Pippa herself marries.

Pippa does look lovely and rather elegant. I do think she took a chance by wearing a gown covered with large muliti coloured flowers but it does seem to "work" for her. As for Fergie, not certain what to say here. I think she does try and she definitely does look better here in her black gown with a silver trim. I do think that this gown is maybe too "young" for her and the slit on the side is not appropriate at all. Gives the entire look a slightly "cheap" edge.

Pippa looks nice and the dress is definitely a cahnge from her Temperley dress.
(Notice the comment about how that dress was similar to those worn by two other women? She can't win!)

Still, I generally prefer solid-colored evening dresses to prints. But in this case, the solid might look too old for her.

Is Pippa invited for this kind of social events or she has a PR agent who sends her to attend?

The press is going crazy looking for the name of the man Pippa was dancing with; I suppose when they find him, he'll have no privacy either.

Quite a lot of cleavage shown here, no bra and no slip either. I would never want my daughter or sister to be photographed like this. This dress looks very much like a night gown.

I fail to understand why miss Middleton is such a hot item in the press.
She is only the duchess of Cambridge's sister.

Loved the gown that Pippa was wearing. She looked very good. Didn't like the dress that Fergie wore.

I believe Pippa will be a hot item in the press. She's attractive and people are interested in her life and what she's doing.

That's the thing; people are interested.
They say in the comments that they don't see why she gets so much press; well, the point is that they bothered to read the story and then comment!

I saw the comments that Diana's sisters didn't get that kind of press, but I think they were both married at the time Diana came on the scene, so hat possibly made a difference.
If nobody was interested, there wouldn't be any story printed.

I totally agree Mirabel.

In the world we live in: Caller ID, Yahoo tracking which stories/people are trending in the internet, newspapers/magazines knowing how many people clicked on a particular story,. etc. At some point for some, Pippa generates a lot of interest via the news...so someone is reading stuff on her. I find it rather ironic, that people complain/question the interest in Pippa, and yet continue to post in this thread after probably clicking on the story. The media is giving what they think the public wants...more info on Pippa. Who she is dating, what she is wearing (although I think her clothing style isn't all that), and that we want to know when she gets a cup of coffee. If people stopped or slowed down their interest, the press will find someone else to focus on. They would love to focus on Kate but they can't, so its the next best thing...Pippa.

Speaking of Kate and Pippa, did anyone see the True Hollywood story that was on? I blew it off, figured it was just a rehash of what is already known and bad info.

Upon the completion of my schools new football stadium, they used (which I am sure they weren't alone) the following theme....If you build it they will come.

I think it totally applies to the interest of Pippa.

In this case the saying applies that it takes two to tango, not only that people are interested but also that Pippa makes herself available. If she wouldnt want any attention & the opportunities that go along with it and live accordingly, she wouldnt get it.

But if you attend high profile events with lots of photographers either in short dresses or low necklines, bring a different man to each event or park your fancy car in the wrong spot on a regular basis, its clear what is coming and I think Pippa is embracing it, nothing wrong with that, it can take her to another level, depending on what she wants.

Being Kate's sister and being young, lively and attractive will always be the basis of interest, at least in the present media climate (was very different eg for Diana's sisters when the celebrity culture had yet to come).

I disagree to an extent.

Yes, Pippa does make herself available when she attends high profile events. But other young ladies in her social circle (in terms of youth, wealth, etc) attend the same events. The only difference is that as Catherine's sister there is an extra interest in her. So because she is doing things that she might already do, why should she totally change her lifestyle because the press is following her.

And she isn't allowed to have male friends?

At some point, the press is being intrusive almost stalkerish. If she is on vacation (when she was with some female friends and George), or getting coffee, or going to work, etc. there are no needs to have constant pictures.

So really IMO the press is more to blame. We can say that Pippa seeks the spotlight when she attends well known events but I see no reason why she can't live like a normal young lady in her social circle...and that includes hanging out with friends, getting coffee, park in an illegal spot (we have all been known to do it from time to time so its not like she is special in that regard), going on vacation, etc. without them taking constant pics.

I really think in our society in the quest for fame and to know everything about "famous/celebrity/well known" pictures we (and I use that term for all of us) have crossed the line ---- we automatically assume because that one is/seeking/born to/wants to be a public figure/royal/celebrity, etc. have NO right to ANY privacy at all and that I think that is wrong.

.. good points ZONK :) I certainly do park s.times in the wrong spots .. but most certainly NOT with the view to atrackt attention LOL quite the opposite in fact ..

Pippa is IMHO not seeking the limelight: she doesn't give Interviews, doesn't appear in TV-Shows or does fotoshooting to be published; she is not pushing it .. so she should be left alone.

Well, thats the crux for all celebrities: You either have the press, or you dont. I didnt make the rules but this is how it is. If you are happy to have your picture taken at fashion shows etc you cant say I dont want it taken on my way to work looking shabby.

Because for the media, either you sell or you dont and either the public are interested or they arent, what means the media wont differenciate between private/I dont want to be photographed or public/please take my picture now.

In the end, its a deal that suits both: without the media, nobody would take note of the celebs, but without the celebs, the media wouldnt sell. You cant chose to your own liking. If you want to move in celebrity circles and pose in short dresses etc, fine, but then you have to put up with the annoying side. You just cant have one without the other. If you dont like it, then leave, change your life, stay away - there is no other option.

I dont see anything negative about Pippa - she seems to be the attention type and is enjoying it, there is only a problem once she starts complaining about what she embraced earlier.

I agree; she is living her life in the same way that she did before the Royal Wedding.
But now the press dogs her every step, stories about her walking to work, buying coffee, etc.
(There was even mention of a porn film mogul offering her 5 million to do one scene).

I don't think Pippa is believing her own publicity, either.
Rumor says she's about to get engaged to Alex Loudon, and she could most likely make a much better match if she wished.

Spletnik -The street style - Pippa Middleton

I am not sure why people are interested in Ms. Middleton. She lacks an air of gentility about her, which is inherent in ladies from noble families (e.g., Lady Helen Taylor or Lady Gabriella Windsor).
