Pippa News: Round-up for February 14th – 19th

Bottom-boosting tights

Another week, another newspaper article on getting Pippa’s booty with some miracle cheat!  This time, The Sun’s “Woman” magazine asked a size 12 personal assistant from Hertfordshire to test five pairs of padded pants and tights on the market to see which pair gives the best shape.  The headline of the article is “How to get a bum like Pippa Middleton’s.”

The model tried a £5 pair of shaper tights from Asda, a £23 pair of bum boosters from Debenhams, a pair of £68 booty booster shorts from Spanx, some £14 control pants from M&S and finally, a pair of “tum and bum” tights from the 99p store.

The verdict?  It was the £5 pair of Asda tights that came up the winner!  I live near an Asda, so I’ll have to give these a try and let you know my verdict too!

Bookies odds:

According to this article, William Hill have given Pippa Middleton and Earl George Percy the odds of 3/1 to announce an engagement first out of a batch of other celebrity couples.  Interesting, considering that nobody knows if they’re a couple or just friends since Pippa reportedly split from Alex Loudon back in October/November. They also gave the Earl 33/1 odds of proposing on Valentine’s Day.

Temperley London at London Fashion Week:

Pippa attended Temperley’s spring catwalk show back in September, but was noticeably absent at the AW/12 show  yesterday.

About the 2012 collection, Alice Temperley told London Fashion Week that her inspiration came from “Paintings and portraits from the beginning of the Renaissance movement, rich damask textures, tapestries and wallpapers with ornate jewel-tone colour palettes and elaborate gilt carvings and sculpture.”

Here’s Alice Temperley’s mood board from  LFWDaily.com:

  1. any news on pippa’s latest fashion? e.g. her modalu bag, has she brought another one from the store???

  2. An exclusive on how Pippa is staying fit and raising money for charity. [link removed]

    • Thank you. I’ve been aware of this page for about a week, plus I know of the website you linked and Pippa’s use of it for some time. I have decided not to write about it at the moment, as I’m sure if Pippa wanted news/press interest for the charity she’d release these details.

      Thanks again.

  3. I LOVED the Temperly show! So vintage and beautiful – I loved the Rose motif that kept popping up. Wish Pippa was there again, but I think that she’s trying to keep a low profile. Thanks for listing the competition for the scarf! I entered.
