We propose to consider the top 10 scandalous outfits of Pippa Middleton – from defiantly frank to outraged royal fans for other reasons.
Thanks to the fact that her older sister has become part of the royal family, Pippa Middleton has become the center of attention, and her choice in matters of love, friends and fashion is actively discussed in the international press. Reporters are vying to analyze the wardrobe of the youngest of the Middleton sisters, being sure that she does not intend to give the palm to Kate in terms of spectacular images. Pippa’s most scandalous outfits — from the dress she chose for the Cambridge wedding to the revealing cocktail dresses — seem to confirm this idea.
Too “hot” bridesmaid

April 29, 2011
On the wedding day of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Pippa almost “stole the show” from her older sister. She carried the train of the bride’s dress and got literally on all the wedding pictures, and most of all the United Kingdom remembered the moment when the skinny Pippa went to church in a tight dress that emphasized her toned hips. Like the bride’s dress, it was made in the Alexander McQueen workshop, aged in white. However, the demand has increased not at all for the brand’s clothes, but for the services of plastic surgeons for the formation of ideal buttocks. In 2013, Ingrid Seward of Majesty Magazine told The New York Times, “Pippa didn’t just get attention at her sister’s wedding. She was the center of attention.”
And since then, the paparazzi have never forgotten about Duchess Catherine’s sister. Pippa recalled this moment in a 2014 speech: “Looking back, I can say that [the dress] fit too well. As I found out, recognition has its pros, cons and, one might say, a downside.”
Another “stolen show” at the wedding

After her sister’s wedding, Pippa Middleton gained a reputation as the main attention-snatcher at such celebrations. In Britain, they even noted the so-called “Pippa effect”, when the dresses she chose were instantly sold out after the publication of photos from weddings where she was a guest. Another outfit of the younger Miss Middleton that impressed the United Kingdom was the Tabitha Webb dress with a floral print, a peplum and a narrow hem, which again emphasized Pippa’s slender hips, in which the girl appeared at the wedding of Lady Melissa Percy and Thomas van Straubenzee in 2013.
Scandalous twin outfit

The younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge has been repeatedly accused of copying the older one. At the christening of Princess Charlotte in July 2015, Her Highness’s mother and aunt appeared in almost identical outfits. Kate was dressed in a cream Alexander McQueen coat dress, light shoes and a Jane Taylor hat, and Pippa’s outfit was almost the same. Many considered this a real audacity on the part of Sister Catherine.
Pleating and deep neckline

V-neck dresses definitely enjoyed a lot of love from Pippa. In the Hugo Boss model, pale blue color, floor length and romantic pleating were combined with a sufficiently deep neckline, attracting all attention to this area. The accent was even more obvious against the background of Pippa’s beautiful tan and neutral makeup. In this form, the Duchess’s sister Catherine appeared on ParaSnowBall in support of Disability Snowsport UK in 2015.
Red Heartbreaker Dress

Like her sister, Pippa actively supports charity. However, unlike Kate, her younger sister rarely adheres to a strict dress code and can quite afford flirty styles, ignoring the wishes for modesty and restraint. At the Boodles Boxing Ball in October 2011, the youngest of the Middleton sisters wore a long red Temperley dress with a plunging neckline, competing with Geri Halliwell in a very similar outfit at that evening. The sister of the newly-made Duchess of Cambridge was accused of wanting to draw attention to her appearance after her recent appearance at the wedding of William and Kate.
Playful dress at a charity event

Pippa showed some of her most daring images at charity events. At the London Boodles Boxing Ball in support of the Gordon Ramsay Foundation in 2015, the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge appeared in a bright blue Jenny Packham dress with playful details: a flying hem, a draped bodice with a through neckline and open arms. The press diligently called the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister a “socialite” and a “party girl”, appealing to such outfits. Pippa in 2016 , in a conversation with the Daily Mail , retorted: “People see me as a privileged person who took advantage of his position to his advantage; that I don’t really work, that I’m a socialite — this word really annoys me — and that I’m a party girl without any content. I work very hard. I am true to my values. I’m just trying to live a normal life, like many of my friends.”
Unusual “pregnant” dress with cutouts

Pippa did not forget about her love for through-cutouts even during pregnancy. Just look at this summer cotton outfit with thin straps, in which a flirty length is combined with triangular cutouts along the edge of the hem.
Open shoulders and a “sliding” effect

July 10, 2017
Pippa has repeatedly bet on summer dresses with V-neck and sleeves, but the Tephi London model has surpassed them all. The cut was remembered thanks to the “slipping” effect, complemented by a thin fabric and a delicate mint shade.
Beige dress with transparent inserts

July 5, 2017
Wimbledon is the place where the Middletons feel at home. And she can appear on the podium in a dress with transparent inserts in the daytime, not in the evening. The pink and beige lace outfit Self-Portrait, according to InStyle, demanded to add “a petticoat and a transparent top panel to cover up.” Despite the presence of a white collar, this model turned out to be absolutely anti-conservative and, perhaps, one of the most intriguing in Pippa’s wardrobe.
Translucent Black Dress

November 20, 2013
In 2013 , Liz Jones of the Daily Mail wrote: “There’s one thing poor Pippa Middleton doesn’t have, and unfortunately for her it’s something money can’t buy: style.” We assume that the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister and her fans were offended by this conclusion, but it seems that the author of the article hinted at the frankness of the younger Miss Middleton’s outfits. At the Sugarplum Ball in November 2013, Pippa appeared in a translucent black evening dress and a sequined jacket, as well as large purple earrings. It would be difficult to call the set successful from the point of view of style, but the cut and texture of the dress definitely allowed to consider the beautiful figure of its owner. At that moment, the press dubbed Pippa a rebel who dresses like her sister wouldn’t dare.
