Pippa, Oompa Loompa and Cameron Diaz

Is it just me or is the biggest winner from the Royal Wedding of HRH William HRH Catherine, Kate’s little sister Pippa?  Really, through no effort of her own, she is currently the front page picture on just about every media website, newspaper and daily.  She got to dance (not to mention leave with) HRH Prince Harry at the evening wedding reception and will undoubtedly be on the receiving end of all kinds of proposals (decent and otherwise). Lucky girl!

What generated the most talk was Pippa’s sexy bridesmaid dress.  Yes, in the U.S., no one but the bride wears white to the wedding.  But apparently, this is not the case on the other side of the pond, especially for royal weddings.  Although, the dress was rather low cut on the bodice, it really isn’t the biggest issue for me. What was? The overdose of self-tanner that left Ms. Pippa looking like Oompa Loompa from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory:


Sometimes, the St. Tropez self-tanner can go a little too Sunkist.  The other issue with the dress is that although it was designed especially for Pippa by Sarah Burton, creative director and designer for Alexander McQueen, to incorporate the same lace edging and fabric as her sister’s wedding gown, the truth is that the dress is not new. In fact, it was a showstopper in the 2009 Pre-Fall Alexander McQueen collection and famously worn by Ms. Cameron Diaz to the Golden Globes Awards:

Shoot, I never thought someone could make Cameron look anything less extremely slim, but Pippa’s waifish body makes Ms. Diaz look positively athletic by comparison.

What say you?  Did you like Pippa’s bridesmaid dress?  Will it start a new trend here in America of attendants wearing white?  Will we all start severe juice cleanses in order to drop a stone’s weight to look like Pippa?  All I really know is that as long as you don’t like this, who really cares:

Why princess Beatrice is wearing reproductive organs on her head is beyond me. Maybe Pippa can give her styling classes, especially now that Beatrice has taken up long distance running and has gotten herself into shape.  If anyone can makeover the royal families of Europe, let it be the Middletons!
