Pippa Middleton took her Uptradey game to Paris: will she get with a French boy?

Ever since Pippa Middleton’s lawyer yelled at the British tabloids towards the end of last year, there has been a significant dearth of new Pippa photos. She is no longer getting pap’d on a regular basis, as she walks to and from work. She is no longer being written about on a daily basis. She is no longer eclipsing her sister with media coverage. Was that the point? That no one out-shines the Duchess of Cambridge, not even the Duchess’s little sister? Or did Pippa really “hate” the attention so much? She never seemed to mind the attention, honestly. The attention might have been one of the factors in her split with Alex Loudon (that, and her lack of “old money”), but the attention also opened up a lot of doors for Pippa as far as “potential suitors” go.

Speaking of, during William and Kate’s most recent vacation to France, Pippa was also there… with George Percy, the future Duke of Northumberland. I tend to think that Pippa has pretty much landed Percy – they were all over each other during New Year’s at the Middletons, and Pippa’s long, exhaustive plan to win him back has worked out. I think that George will be the one that she eventually marries. He’s titled, he’s rich, and she’ll get to be a duchess, just like her sister. This is Uptradey’s ultimate goal. But our Uptradey plays a good game, and she’s not in the mood to marry right now. So Pippa went to Paris, and while there, she’s been hanging out with lots of eligible men – those are the dudes in these photos. Don’t ask me to ID these guys – they look alike to me.

Pippa Middleton appears to be making the most of Paris in the spring after being spotted out with three of France’s most eligible bachelors. On Friday night the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge was hand in hand with television producer Antoine de Tavernost as the pair attended a fashionable party.

Antoine, 28, is the son of television mogul Nicolas de Tavernost, who owns French cable channel M6, is director of leading football club Bordeaux – and is one of the richest men in France.

Then yesterday morning Pippa was seen hugging and laughing with aristocrat Marcy de Soultrait. He is the brother of Viscount Arthur de Soultrait, 29, who Pippa met the same day. It was his birthday party she had been at the previous evening with Antoine.

Arthur de Soultrait is one of the most successful young entrepreneurs in France and runs the upmarket Vicomte A clothing range, which had a turnover of around £10million in 2010. Those who have been seen in his clothes have included Francois Fillon, France’s Prime Minister, and Christine Lagarde, the head of the International Monetary Fund. Arthur is proud of his friendship with Pippa, whom he invited to the French Open tennis championship last summer.

At the time, the pair were seen enjoying meals in upmarket Paris restaurants and clubs.
Pippa has stayed at Arthur’s flat in Paris’s upmarket 7th Arrondissement before.

Arthur went into business while doing an internship in Charlotte, North Carolina, in 2004, and began selling ties imported from Italy door-to-door. Among the lucrative contracts he has picked up in recent years is a contract to supply ties to the French Olympic team.

Pippa is understood to have got to know the Frenchmen when she spent time in Paris after graduating from Edinburgh University. She regularly travelled to Paris to visit her close friend Alice St John Webster who moved there after graduation.

[From The Mail]

Will Pippa end up with a Frenchman? No. She won’t. She’ll end up with George Percy, mark my words! She’s already planned it out, and what Pippa lacks in patience (Kate got all of the patience), Pippa makes up for in aggression, game and flirtation. So what’s the point of the Paris trip? Maybe George pissed her off. Maybe Pippa is letting him know that she has a Plan B. Or maybe Pippa is simply having fun.

    Is douche or douches a french word?

  2. The Original Denise says:

    What in the name of fuggery is she wearing in the header photos??

  3. Tanguerita says:

    what on earth is she wearing in the header?

  4. Cupidityrox says:

    Wow. Everyone’s always going on about Blake Lively having game. She ain’t got nothing on Pippa. Her talent for hobnobbing with rich, titled & noblemen is unparalleled. She should write a book

  5. Jackie says:

    outside of her bridesmaid dress, this girl has terrible style.

    those girls do seem to get what they want in the end, though. i wouldn’t mind a bit of their ‘end game’ thinking.

  6. Isabella says:

    I am sorry but her face looks like a man’s, a 40 year old over tanned man who wants to be a woman, and is failing badly. I am absolutely baffled why any rich good-looking guy would give her a second look or fall all over her, its not like the world run out of actual attractive women.

  7. fairy godmother says:

    Pipster was invited to this by the clothes designer a long time ago after French opener (last year). The clothes designer gave her loads of freebie clothes & handbags from his collection for his PR.
    George could have easily gone with her, but this actually works to her advantage.
    It is a page from Waity’s bag-him manual! Put yourself out there in the media have a great time with wealthy, eligible men to make her target see what he will be missing. Works more often than not.
    GP is titled & Pipster will do whatever it takes to get all the bells & whistles that a social climber/WAG wants.

    • Hmmm says:

      Yeah, she’s following Waity DoLittle’s (i.e., the Middletons’) game plan. It’s so glaringly obvious.

      She must have some amazing skills because she doesn’t have much else going for her.

      I had no idea upper class men really are moronic twits. Monty Python got it right.

  8. jamminatorr says:

    I hope she’s wearing a costume or something in these photos… the dress is horrid. and lacy leggings??

  9. Axel 5 says:

    If I have to choose I prefer her life than her sister´s.

    • Mia says:

      Agreed! Looks like Pippa got all the connections, men, fun and basically all the perks of being “royal”/upper society while Kate got all the “work” (uh…well whatever she says is work), media scrutiny and William.

    • bettyrose says:

      Agreed! At least she’s packing her twenties with world travel and meaningless trysts (at least, I hope she is). These girls are young, well educated heiresses. Other than aristocratic titles, they have *everything*. Why they’d trade in the good life for titles is beyond me. Seriously. WTF?!?

  10. Dhavy says:

    She’s becoming the royal version of the Kardashians….famous by association therefore trying to get an aristrcrat because of the it

  11. carlino altoviti says:

    She went to a costume party. Guests were dressed like people from the 1700. She has chosen an odd combination really.

  12. Axel 5 says:

    Pippa was wearing period drama-inspired dress to celebrate Viscount Arthur´s de Soultrait´s birthday.

  13. Agnes says:

    god, this chick is busted. and i am not just talking the outfit. with all this money, she should take better care of her skin, she looks like she’s in her late 30s, for pete’s sake.

  14. Anguishedcorn says:

    That’s quite a collection of skeevy looking guys she’s acquired.

  15. alibeebee says:

    she is so unfortunate looking nice figure but her face! she’s a true butter face ..
    poor thing

  16. lower-case deb says:

    on the second picture (the one with the eyes wideee open), why is there mud/dirt/dust on her forehead and (visible) cheek?

  17. Cleveland Girl says:

    I said it before, and I will say it again. This woman is THIN. That is basically the only attractive thing about her.

  18. Reece says:

    1. I had her money & connections, I’d be working it too.

    2. Clearly the Middleton girls mother taught them how to do makeup and they’ve never had a professional from this decade(century. Dynasty any one?) teach them otherwise. It’s not just the eyeliner! Dear God, the Blush! Seriously!

    3. I LIKE THAT COSTUME!! *runs*

  19. the original almond says:

    Is she really in her late twenties? She looks so much older than that. Pretty she is not, young looking even less, so where is the initial appeal? Maybe she’s a wonderful, amazing woman on closer acquaintance, but what’s got these men going after her in the first place? I’m baffled, because all I can see is a butterface.

  20. Julie says:

    im very interested how she is as a person because guys of that status could date girls way hotter than her.

  21. maemay says:

    I don’t care I like Pippa!! Get it gurl!!

  22. Hootie Hoo says:

    Looks like she got dressed by a blind man.
    She has no fashion sense. none.

  23. Zorbitor says:

    I see London,
    I see France,
    I see Pipper’s …..

  24. sup says:

    she’s so fug and has no sense of fashion at all. glad the media stopped trying to make her happen.

  25. B says:

    How did she find two, rich, male chipmonks in one photoshoot?

  26. Carobell says:

    I love her! On some level, I wish I could be aggressive in romance the way she is. She doesn’t strike me as the kind of girl who is single long.

  27. GoodCapon says:

    What is the best way to describe Pippa Middleton?
    A. Cheap
    B. Tacky
    C. Trashy
    D. All of the above

    Take your pick!

  28. HoustonGrl says:

    Oh the arrogance…France doesn’t have aristocracy anymore, remember that little event in which they cut everyone’s heads off? That was for a reason. And Pippa is fug. Shameful to try to fit in with this value-less society of sheltered brats.

  29. GoodCapon says:

    Does anybody else think that perhaps Pippa was only paid to attend this event? Like the way they pay B-C list celebrities (Paris etc.) so there would be more attention given to the party.

    In one of the interviews the host of the party didn’t really know how to describe his ‘friend’ Pippa aside from being ‘cool’ and ‘awesome’. Let’s not forget that he has a clothing company of his own and someone with a reputation like Pippa would do wonders for his PR. It makes me think they are only using her because she attracts attention – favorable or otherwise.

  30. Vera says:

    She just looks so much like an obnoxious sorority girl – I can’t get past that. The horrendous tan does nothing to help.

  31. Maya says:

    Jeez, she has terrible bags under her eyes. She looks like she’s forty. What on earth is she thinking wearing the outfit in the first photo?

  32. JulieM says:

    I wouldn’t be so quick to say that she will marry George Percy. There’s that little thing called his family. I hope you don’t think the Northumberland family would let their heir marry Pippy. Not going to happen. I don’t care how strong willed George is. And by appearances, he doesn’t strike me as all that. Nice guy, but not much else.

    Alex’s family was ragged on for being snobby when he dumped her. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

    Geez, she looks rough. And for such a young woman.

  33. La.uren says:

    Why is Pippa so man faced? She is not a natural beauty. Great figure though.

  34. Fue McCormick says:

    Pippa Middleton: Ugly Outfit #26 (photo #1). Ha! She finally emerges and yet another ghastly outfit. I keep hoping this chick will finally get it right and stop dressing like a dime-store dame.
