Kate may be the princess, but it seems no one can stop talking about her sister, Pippa! The cute brunette drew attention in her body-hugging bridesmaid gown, and it seems the public liked what they saw! Here is the maid-of-honor leaving London the day after the royal wedding in a crisp, summery look. She’s wearing a blue jacket from ZARA, white jeans, Tory Burch shoes, and a light grey Modalu Bristol handbag – which became so popular after this photo was taken that Modalu renamed it the “Pippa Bag.” Now that Kate is hitched, the public probably wants a new face to fawn over… and it seems Pippa is the new favorite!

Playing second fiddle to a blushing bride isn’t always a fun job (especially when you’re in the world’s most watched wedding – don’t trip! Only 1/3 of the planet is watching!) But Princess Kate’s kid sister seemed to be having a grand ol’ time at her big sister’s royal nuptials! Pippa Middleton seems as perky and fun as her nickname! Princess Catherine wasn’t about to make her maid-of-honor look like a dog – she outfitted Pippa in a sexy gown by the same designer (Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton) as herself. What a good sister! People were perplexed why Pippa was in white too, but it’s royal tradition to dress a lady-in-waiting in a similar color to the bride. Both girls looked quite glamorous, which is why we waited a week to feature Pippa in her own post! And really? Which wedding guest had a gown appropriate enough for “Fancy Friday” that wasn’t Kate?
“Always a bridesmaid, never a bride…” But it doesn’t matter if your Princess Catherine’s maid-of-honor, because you’ll be wearing some hot designer duds! For the ceremony, both Kate Middleton and her younger sister, Pippa, were wearing Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton. But for the second reception, Pippa wore an emerald green Temperley gown. “The dress was designed especially for her with a fantastic open back and a full skirt for dancing in,” Alice Temperley explained. Temperley, who attended the same college as McQueen and Burton (Central St. Martins), launched her own line in 2000. The high-end British designer might sound familiar to American ears, due to her participation in the Target GO International program. This gown’s color does look divine on Miss Middleton, but maybe that’s because our editors are quite biased… We certainly approve of maid-of-honors in green!
