Pippa Middleton goes clubbing in £295 Temperley trousers: cute or fug?

Pippa Tip: When one wants attention, one should wear loud clothing and drunkenly fall out of a nightclub in the wee hours and get into a taxi with a man who is not your boyfriend.

Here are some new photos of Pippa Middleton leaving the London nightclub Loulou’s last night. The dude she’s with is Tom Kingston, a 34-year-old banker who hangs around Pippa a lot. He’s the same guy who was all over her at the races in March. He is not her official boyfriend Nico Jackson. Is this scandalous? Or does Pippa just have a lot of male friends who she parties with regularly and there’s nothing to it?

As for Pippa’s “loud” pants (Pippa tip: “Loud” clothing is not audibly loud, in many instances “loud” means brightly colored)… they are Temperley London and they are expensive. They are called ‘Sovereign Silk Trousers‘ and cost £295. According to Temperley London, the fabric was “inspired by Ballet Russes costumes from the early 1900’s and made of soft crepe-de-chine, the ikat style print is graphic and eye catching.” Am I the only one who thinks these pants are terrible? I do like the fact that at least one of the Middleton girls wears pants, but I hate this fabric.

Interestingly enough, Princess Eugenie was also at the club at the same time as Pippa. They did not leave together. I really don’t think the Middleton ladies get along with the York princesses whatsoever.

    I really struggle with Temperley designs in general, so…
    I’m sure they were given to her, though.

  2. Lulu.T.O. says:

    I actually like the pants and would kill for that jacket.

    She doesn’t look lambasted to me, just ‘happy’.

  3. Suze says:

    NO Kaiser, you most certainly are not alone – those pants are just fug fug fug.

    Like the jacket, though.

  4. Dawn says:

    Love the whole look…but you have to have the body to wear it and she does.

  5. rianic says:

    Love them – I would wear them, but not with that jacket or shoes.

    I actually wear a lot of LOUD pants

  6. Gabby says:

    I have a pair of pajama pants that are pretty similar.

  7. Bernice says:

    These would be cute with a sleeveless pink tank and sandals at a beach reort. Here, with that jacket color, ugh? IMHO

  8. teehee says:

    EEW it didnt flatter in the early 90′s and it doesnt flatter now— I have a deal with my sister to wear awful pants like that for my 30th birthday to commemorate our wearing them when we were 10…. LOL

  9. Jess says:

    Hate them on her. Would work on someone who actually had fashion sense and knew how to style them.

    Eugenie looks cute. I like the contrast between her and Pippa here. One is mugging for the cameras, the other is staring at the ground.

  10. LadyMTL says:

    I’m torn, because I normally loathe loud pants (and come on, they don’t normally flatter a figure) but I kind of like these. HOWEVER, I hate the rest of the outfit so…yeah, torn.

  11. sala says:

    I usually don’t like what she wears but really love those trousers. Gorgeous. How she styles them though…not so much.

  12. F5 says:

    You know what they say: if you don’t have anything nice to say about anybody, come sit by me.. ;p

  13. Aria says:

    Fug face and fug pants. Sorry…

  14. linlin says:

    I don’t necessarily dislike them but they are difficult to wear and I think she can’t pull them off. I am sure Solange Knowles could make them look good.

  15. emily says:

    Pants like that… Bright colours, sligtly loose fitting… Are all over Europe at the moment….

  16. GoodCapon says:

    Amazing how an upstart social climber would wear a signet ring to show off their tacky, brand new coat of arms, while a blood princess is confident and secure enough not to brag about it.

  17. Alarmjaguar says:

    I love the idea behind the pants — going back to old patterns and fabric, but I think it would have worked better as a skirt.

  18. judd says:

    For someone so rich she always looks so cheap and those pants are UGLY.

  19. Reece says:

    I would like them more if they were fitted and not wide or straight (or genie) legged. Hard to tell which one exactly.

    • Onasan says:

      Yes! And maybe a bit above the ankle and with a black blazer. Not sure of what color I’d wear under the blazer.
      I also think that the background color of the pants is terrible, barely looks good on ANYONE… I’d like this print more in another color combination.

  20. sally says:

    i like the look but ummm..who goes clubbing in all those layers? isn’t she hot? did she even dance? it’s a decent enough outfit to wear to dinner or shopping, but clubbing???

  21. Mich says:

    She certainly looks pleased to see the cameras. The York sister clearly doesn’t feel the same.

  22. HoustonGrl says:

    I’m sorry, did you say pants? I was too distracted by the clown makeup.

  23. littlestar says:

    The pants aren’t too bad. I’m actually a big fan of the printed pants trend right now, bought a pair of silk pants with a leaf design on them recently. HOWEVER, Pippa’s pants don’t fit her very well in the leg and the shoes she is wearing the pants with are just gahd awful. Pippa has the worst taste in shoes. If she went with a heeled sandal, I think the outfit would have looked a lot better. Or a pump with a pointier toe. Rounded toes make Pippa look quite squat.

  24. Zombie Shortcake says:

    I read that Bea and Euge had a long running feud with Kate and Pippa. Though, I took the York girls’ attendance of the launch of Celebrate as a formal gesture of goodwill, at least toward Pippa.

  25. Micki says:

    I like bold coloured pants but the pattern is not really my thing. What’s that-geometrical ethno? Otherwise I like it.

  26. Amanda says:

    Isn’t she a bit old to be out clubbing? Just sayin.

  27. mslewis says:

    I like the pants. They are “on trend” and they look really good on her. I would have worn a pink jacket but perhaps she didn’t want to be too “loud.” Personally, I don’t understand the photos of Pippa coming out of a club. Seems like all women her age spend a good deal of time in nightclubs with friends. Don’t see the scandal and she definitely does not look drunk.

  28. RobN says:

    Maybe the pants only seem loud in comparison to Eugenie’s oh so exciting blue dress, black tights, shoes and sweatery thing. Lord, that’s dull.

  29. erin says:

    LOVE the pants, hate how she has accessorized them. The outfit on the whole is terrible, but a simple black bodysuit under the pants with some sexy heels would have been such a great look.

  30. Julia says:

    Heinous– I’ve had bedspins in that color and design

  31. Ag says:

    The pants are hideous. Love the Pippa Tips – keep them coming!

  32. Laura says:

    Not a fan of Pippa’s outfit but she is an alright looking woman.

    Personally, I prefer the look of Princess Eugenie much more than Pippa’s look.

    On a side note, there was a really cute article in The Daily Mail about the Queen and Camilla attending a horse event together and the photos of the Queen are SO cute!!! I love it when the Queen is genuinely happy and smiling — she looks adorable!!! And it’s clear she is close with Camilla as they seemed very at ease with one another, to the point of affectionate. So nice to see.

  33. Sachi says:

    Fug outfit.

    The pants make her look stumpy and her cropped jacket emphasizes her long torso and short legs even more.

    The pants also look like pajamas on her.

    Temperley should have had the pants cut and styled like cigarette pants, and Pippa should have omitted the jacket but kept the plain black shirt and long necklace, and then worn stilettos or high-heeled strappy sandals. She would have looked great.

    Something about Pippa “cheapens” clothes, though IMO. She rarely looks stylish or chic.

  34. val says:

    She looks HARD, how old is this girl again?

  35. ya says:

    Don’t like the pants…. but also don’t quite get what the issue is with her going clubbing or entering into the car – she doesn’t look particularly drunk, and she got into the car with friends – what’s the big deal?

    Something about this post seems a bit prudish to me.

  36. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    For a 50-year old, she doesn’t look that bad.

  37. Emily says:

    Those are some of the ugliest Hammerpants I’ve ever seen.

  38. Angelic 20 says:

    Kaiser the pippa tip you started your post with is actually an original Kate tip. Pippa is just following big sis footsteps.

  39. dominique says:

    Love the pants. With a hot pink silk camisole, long black cardigan and black, strappy sandals. Could’ve been hot. But not.

  40. paranormalgirl says:

    I like the pants, but they would look like all kinds of holy hell on me.

  41. McKenzie says:

    I’m just surprised that this how these ladies are styled for clubbing. The pattern on Pippa’s pants are fun, however they’re the wrong fit and terribly styled as a lot of you are saying. Eugenie’s outfit is nothing special either.

  42. some bitch says:

    Girlfriend is not aging well.

  43. bridget says:

    Sometimes I wonder if there’s just plain tension between the Wales and York families in general, but that we just see it between the 2 sets of sisters. The Duke of York has effed up pretty badly (the latest being letting his ex-wife sell access to him) and Charles has stated a plan to reduce the number of working royals – which would mean that the York family would have to come up with other jobs, especially since they’ve blown through a lot of money. We give Kate a tough time for being so cavalier about her role as princess (otherwise known as “lazy”) but that doesnt exactly make the York family nice in comparison.

    • LAK says:

      The York girls have jobs or on their way to having jobs.

      Beatrice works for a finance company whereas Eugenie has been interning at several galleries with a view to getting a permanent job.

      Any royal duties and charitable endeavours are strictly on their own time and dime.

    • FLORC says:

      The York girls are sincere and hardworking. Their parents made a mess, but they didn’t. Yes, Fergie blew through a lot of money, but Kate is catching up. She just has William’s press protection for now. It says a lot that B&E pay for travel, security and wardrobe out of pocket to do more charity work of better quality than Kate does.

      These girls have taken huge attacks for being their parents children. That makes them nice. There are so many accounts of the middleton girls being plain awful to them and they never fought back. Because they have class.

  44. KellyinSeattle says:

    The print/color of the pants would be perfect for parachute pants.

  45. HH says:

    The pants are cute, but Pippa needed to have them tailored. There are too long here. If you look at the model on the Temperley website, they are shorter and have a slight cuff at the ankle. However, I do like to give Pippa credit b/c she doesn’t take chances with her fashion.

  46. Grace Under Pressure says:

    UpTradey is out for the night, still scouting for a potential upgrade from her current beau.

    It ain’t over til Westminster Abbey.

  47. Suze says:

    Will this one ever get married off?

  48. Dedrie says:

    Harlequin.. pajamas.. lazy..

  49. Luxe says:

    Lol. The last photo of Pippa made me think of the circus. All she’s missing are stilts.

  50. Suze says:

    Does Pippa have a job? Other than writing books that don’t sell?

  51. dread pirate cuervo says:

    Those pants are fug & give her saddle bags she doesn’t have.

  52. annk says:

    The pants look like tarted-up zubaz.

  53. Amy says:

    Dunno if anybody has been paying attention, but that specific style of pants is going to be EVERYWHERE this summer. I see them in every store I go. I’ve tried them on and I dunno. I think they look GREAT but I just don’t know how to pull them off! My sister has a pair and she rocks them but I am always baffled by how to wear them. So Pippa is going with the trend here.

  54. xoxokaligrl says:

    Those pants are UGLY, and she could have styled those loud ass pants better with something trendy.

  55. danni says:

    I cant understand. she’s very regular looking, why the hell is she interesting?

  56. Dedrie says:

    Is is possible the Middleton gals can learn what is flattering to look pretty and dewy fresh.. and how to apply that makeup properly..?

  57. bluhare says:

    I’m going to London in early June. Am I going to have to wear pants like that t fit in?

  58. MyLittlePony says:

    No matter how much money the Middleton women have, they simply lack good taste. The trousers are very good, but her accessorizing is in line with her make-up style, or rather that of all Middleton women. How can anyone think the Middleton girls are some kind of fashion leaders is simply beyond me. They get it right occasionally, but nevertheless the Middleton “style”, or rather lack of it, shines through.

  59. India says:

    Both She and the pants are tres fug.

  60. those pants are really different i think its not going to look of many people but she carrying it well and its looking nice on her
