Pippa Middleton in a black lace gown, sequined jacket: dowdy or flashy?


Here are some new photos of Pippa Middleton and her boyfriend, Nico Jackson, in London last night. They were attending the Sugarplum Ball. Still no engagement, by the way. The UK tabloids are desperate for ol’ Pippa to get engaged so they can put a bow on her and send her away, I think. Or maybe they just want to see how orange she will be for her wedding day.

Anyway, I was going to bitch about Pippa dowdy styles, but this sequined First Lady-esque jacket is just that – a jacket, not part of the dress. You can see photos of Pippa without the jacket here, and while the dress is not very good at all, the look improves without Laura Bush’s jacket. Pippa’s dress is fully lined too, in case you were wondering if we were seeing the famous Middleton Beav. How is it possible that Pippa is capable of more modesty than her duchess sister? Also: why do the Middleton women hate lipstick? And why is Pippa’s hair so “old”?

Have you heard the latest “diss” by Morrissey? Morrissey hates all things royal and all things Middleton. I guess it’s mostly about the royals’ hunting lifestyle, but I think he’s just anti-monarchist in general. Anyway, Morrissey must have just seen those photos of Pippa with all of the dead birds in October, because Morrissey has written up a lengthy blog post about it. Here’s the Pippa section:

On October 5, the Daily Mail newspaper gave us all an “amusing” report of thickwit Pippa Middleton laughing as she stood over 50 birds shot dead by her friends and herself after a “busy day’s shooting”. We are reminded by the Daily Mail that Middleton is a ‘socialite’, which tells us that she is privileged and can more-or-less kill whatever she likes – and, therefore she does.

The sick face of modern Britain, Pippa Middleton will kill deer, boar, birds – any animal struggling to live, or that gets in her socialite way. This is because her sister is, of course, Kate, who herself became ‘royal’ simply by answering the telephone at the right time, and this association allows Pippa’s kill, kill, kill mentality to be smilingly endorsed by the British print media, to which only the mentally deficient could join in with the laughter.

The right to kill animals is endorsed by Prime Minister David Cameron who shoots stag whenever he feels a bit bored. In the Queen’s Honors List, awards have been bestowed upon musicians Bryan Ferry and PJ Harvey – both of whom allegedly support fox-hunting. There is not one single instance when an animal protectionist has found themselves knighted or applauded by the Queen. That animals are an essential part of our planet (that they are, in fact, the planet) and must be protected, is a shatterbrained concept to the British ‘royals’.

Historically, we all remember Prince William proudly killing the baby deer, Prince Harry bravely giving the thumbs-up as he pointlessly ended the life of a water-buffalo, the Queen loading her shotgun in readiness to shoot birds out of the sky. How terribly regal.

Although the natural idiocy of the British ‘royals’ is internationally acknowledged, it still doesn’t make their behavior any less alarming.

[From Morrissey’s blog]

I have no memory of William killing a baby deer or of Harry killing a water buffalo. Did Morrissey dream those up or did they actually happen? I’m actually kind of surprised that Morrissey hasn’t heard about the truly disturbing incident where two guard dogs protecting William and Kate in Wales were put down just days after Will & Kate moved to London.

    Pippa: Dowdy. As usual.
    Morrissey: A bit cray. As usual. And to think I used to swoon, utterly swoon, over this guy.

  2. YummyMummy says:

    The gown is fine but the jacket is hideous! Wonder if she borrowed it from Mum. She should have worn some kind of wrap or something.

  3. m says:

    You know how some girlfriends of famous guys seem desperate and thrive off of media attention? This Nico guy reminds me of those girls. Hes just so swarmy looking, a try hard. No thank you.

  4. Kiddo says:

    It’s difficult to say from those terrible photo angles, but my feeling is that the bolero might be ruining the look of the dress.

  5. Buckwild says:

    Did she really wear some bum pads to the wedding? I’m starting to believe those conspiracy theorists because it’s like her @ss disappeared after the wedding…

  6. TheEntrepreneursWife says:

    Nico’s got some serial killer eyes. I would run from that as fast as my little legs would take me.

  7. janie says:

    Let me start with how pathetic she is.. I don’t know why she’s in the news, other than she’s a royal wannabe? I’m stuck on the first “Party Planning” book she wrote. She has a recipe for toast? I wonder if she ever tried to hookup with Harry? I hope she gets engaged & goes away!

  8. smee says:

    Her mom must pick out all her clothes bc she truly does dress like a woman 20+ years older than she is. And, as usual, I hate the sheer abomination added to the bottom of her “dress” – which is hideous as well. Well played!

  9. davidbowie says:

    Ugh, that dress and the “Laura Bush” jacket are hideous.

    Oh Moz, you slay me!

  10. GeeMoney says:

    It’s hard for me to hate on this girl, especially since she’s a fellow Virgo and all, but that dress is FUG.

  11. Duchess of Corolla says:

    Just for the record, Paul McCartney was knighted, and he certainly is an animal rights advocate. Mozz forgot that.

  12. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Everyone is saying the outfit is dowdy, and I agree regarding the jacket, but I actually find the dress vulgar and inappropriate. It looks like she’s not wearing anything under it. I know women wear much more revealing things, but there’s just something unintentional and tacky about it to me.

    I don’t know how anyone could take pleasure in killing an animal.

  13. LAK says:

    oh dear Emilia Wickstead strickes again. That dress is fug.

    Jacket is too Barbara Bush and the hair is about 40yrs too old for Pippa, but the dress itself is very, very fugly.

  14. megan says:

    Her dress looks like it is from the Downton Abbey line.

  15. L says:

    The jacket doesn’t match and ages the dress (and her) It looks like something from the 80′s. I know its cold out, but she should have just worn the dress on its own.

    Here’s a better picture of the dress sans jacket. It’s stunning.


    • Sachi says:

      The design had potential but it was ruined by such cheap, mediocre lace and netting. The bronze underlay also ruins the overall look, makes it look too heavy. The shiny fabric for the zipper at the back is so out of place and ruins the dramatic look of the dress.

      I don’t find the dress stunning at all. It looks like it was made by an amateur.

  16. HoustonGrl says:

    Hmmm, this look is very…complicated. And as for her skuzzy boyfriend, she seems less enthusiastic than before.

  17. SuSu says:

    The hunting stories are true.

    I´ll never forget that William has killed a tiny antelope in Kenya with a 7ft spear.

    And i remember the story about Harry killing a water buffalo. There was even a photo. Could be a photomontage, but who knows… http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mbj0gkZdiI1rzwan5o1_500.png

  18. Kate says:

    I’m not offended by Pippa or anything (I’m rather indifferent to her), but I’m still perplexed as to why she’s famous? As for Morrissey, he’s a well-known anti-monarchist, so I’m not surprsied about his criticisms. As an animal rights supporter, I sympathize with his point of view; but hunting is a popular sport in both the UK and the US, and you can’t single-handedly blame the royal family for that type of cruelty. Imagine if hunting were outlawed in the US? The gun nuts’ heads would explode, and those remaining would finally start that “Second Amendment Remedy” revolution they’re always alluding to. As for Kate, or the Duchess of Cambridge or whatever quaint, anachronistic nonsense the British use to address her, I think she’s famously modest in her dress, especially for a woman her age, but she likes high hemlines (and yet always wears hose, often opaque) and tight jeans (hang her from the rafters!). Hardly scandalous. Pippa dresses quite dowdy with her flats and ill-fitting frocks, doesn’t she? If she were relevant, I would say she should hire a stylist.

  19. maggie says:

    Yikes! Did she raid the Queen’s closet to find that jacket? I do like the dress. But why is anyone taking this person’s picture? Is there an interest in Pippa?

  20. HH says:

    Something about Pippa always looks “off” to me. While part of the issue might be tailoring and the cut of the outfit, I think it’s also her face. She just has a very hard face which clashes with anything too feminine such as lace, floral prints, etc. She needs to do things that make her face look softer. There was a concert she attended in which she put slight waves in her hair and tried softer makeup. That worked well for her. http://img2.timeinc.net/people/i/2013/news/130722/michael-middleton-600.jpg Also, bold, edgy looks are nice on her as well. http://metrouk2.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/article-1351201473993-15af4a0a000005dc-592824_466x760.jpg

    I don’t ever think she’ll necessarily be pretty, but she can look cute.

  21. Sachi says:

    What is with the old-fashioned hairstyle?

    The dress looks like it’s from the 1940s, but was not well-preserved and the white/cream underlay got old until it turned bronze. Looks cheap.

  22. shellybean says:

    That is one ugly outfit. You’d think a woman named Pippa would be jaunty and cool and live up to her zippy-sounding name. But not this Pippa. Ugh.

  23. Caroline says:

    She looks way over 40, a gross-looking 40.
    (not trying to be mean, just merely stating the facts)

  24. Minxx says:

    Nico is a famewhore, just look at him. She’s a fool if she marries him.
