Pippa in the Spotlight

Boodles Boxing Ball

Pippa Middleton always seems to know how to stay in the spotlight, especially at weddings. She stole the show at her older sister Kate Middleton’s wedding to Prince William in 2011 which rockets her to fame. On September 14, 2013, Pippa attended another high-society wedding and was in the spotlight yet again.

Socialite Pippa Middleton attended the wedding of Lady Laura Marsham and James Meade in eastern England. Lady Laura is the daughter of the eighth Earl of Romney. James Meade is the son of Olympic gold medalist equestrian Richard Meade. James is said to be a close friend of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. Prince William’s presence at the wedding was obvious as he served as an usher for the event, but his lovely wife was nowhere to be seen. Prince Harry was also in attendance.

Vanity Fair  columnist Pippa Middleton looked stunning in her teal blue lace dress which accentuated her waistline. The knee-length dress was designed by Tabitha Webb. She wore her hair in loose curls and topped them with a teal blue hat which matched her dress and was accented by a peacock feather. She also wore matching stiletto heels for footwear. Her accessories included metallic gold earrings, wristwatch, and a bracelet. Prince William and Prince Harry both looked dapper in their tailcoats at the wedding ceremony.

Pippa may have taken inspiration from her older sister when choosing her dress as it was quite similar to a gorgeous teal blue dress by Jenny Packham that the Duchess of Cambridge wore to a concert to celebrate TeamGB and ParalympicsGB in 2012. Kate Middleton’s gown was floor-length rather than knee-length, but the color and the way it clung to her figure were comparable to that of Pippa’s dress. Kate’s dress featured netted shoulders and back.

Although rumored to be planning a wedding in the near future herself as reportedly she is engaged to stockbroker Nico Jackson, she has not yet been seen to wear an engagement ring. Nico Jackson and Pippa have only been dating a mere six months so perhaps an engagement is a bit on the hasty side despite reports. She did attend the Boodles Boxing Ball with Nico and entered the event holding hands with her beau. If she does get married, it will most likely be yet another wedding where Pippa enjoys the spotlight. It is unlikely that anyone would be able to steal the show from her.
