Pippa Celebrated book launch with FOUR changes of outfit

Pippa “Celebrated” the launch of her book today (Thursday 25th Oct).  After a stock signing at Foyles bookstore, Pippa partied with family and friends at “Daunt Books,” an independent book store located in Chelsea, London.

To the stock signing at Foyles, (see above, left) Pippa wore the Paper London Vespa tunic dress.  The £395 dress features an A-line design, round neck, long sleeves and a funky colour-block patchwork design in contrasting fabrics:

Later, Pippa arrived at the Daunt books event wearing a deep purple dress by Roksanda Ilincic, a black croc print Modalu handbag and a matching pair of black patent pumps (thought to be by Jimmy Choo). With her hair swept up and wearing matching purple earrings, Pippa looked extremely glamorous!  We can’t publish these pictures (don’t ask – to do with copyright and intellectual property) but you can view Pippa in purple by clicking here.

Pippa’s dress is a dark plum version of Roksanda Ilincic’s “Ayden” wool-crepe dress, which features elegant folds near the neckline. It retails at £815 on Net-a-Porter’s website:

Pippa quickly changed before hosting a Halloween themed party for a group of children. Many of the ideas from the pages of Pippas’s book came alive in the book store: children ate doughnuts suspended from the roof and tucked into delicious-looking autumnal treats.  There was one hairy moment when Pippa sat taking part in crafts with the children, discussing their likes and dislikes. Miss Middleton really didn’t know where to put her face when one girl said she hates princesses! Ha!

As you may have guessed, Pippa allowed press and cameras to film the party, I’m assuming for a news story on her new book release. I’ve asked a few journalists when this will be aired – so I’ll keep you updated.

Here we have some photographs from @SkyNewsRoyal from Twitter:

You can see some clearer pictures of Pippa here.

For the pre-party, Pippa wore a black sparkling party dress by one of her go-to designers Markus Lupfer. The $448 Brocade Bodice Dress is cut from a light wool and silk mix fabric and it features a metallic, sequin brocade-inspired design placed on top of the body-con dress:

The green version (above left) that Pippa wore is now sold out.  But a purple version (above right)  is still available for the same price from Net-A-Porter.

With the dress Pippa wore a pair of black boots, which appear to be made by Aquatalia – but at the moment it’s too hard to tell!

After the kids pre-party, Pippa changed yet again, her third outfit was by Stella McCartney. The wonderful Anita Singh from The Telegraph informs us that Pippa wore separates from the Autumn Winter 2012 collection: a wool top and skirt. The outfit does look like a dress, and indeed Stella McCartney has a dress that looks very similar in her collection.

Here’s a closer look at the front and back of the outfit:

By this point, Pippa swapped earrings again and changed into a pair of suede heels by Emmy Shoes.  She was also spotted carrying a black textured clutch bag from Tabitha London.

And now for some added Pippa-wonderfulness, just because I can!  Pippa giving interviews to the press at the book launch party:

How does she manage to keep her calm?
