Pippa Middleton steps out for Wimbledon Day 4 in a light white dress

Wimbledon 2018 - Day 4 - Celebrity Sightings

I was waiting to see when the Middleton family would come out for Wimbledon. Apparently, Carole Middleton went to Wimbledon on the Fourth of July to see Roger Federer play on Center Court. I’m surprised Kate and Pippa didn’t come out for Roger too, considering the families are so close. But Pippa waited to come out to Wimbledon today. My first thought was “is Pippa really a big Rafa Nadal fan?” Because Rafa is scheduled on Center Court today. But after Rafa, two British players are scheduled on Center… rather controversially, because Wimbledon scheduled some major players (including some former Wimbledon champions Djokovic and Muguruza) on smaller courts while Kyle Edmund and Jo Konta get major billing. Anyway, I bet Pippa is going to spend the day watching Center Court matches and supporting the British players, even with Andy Murray’s absence.

Pippa seemed to arrive at the All-England Club with her brother James, not her husband Terribly Moderately Wealthy James. I bet her husband is at work, but maybe he’ll come out with Pippa on Saturday. Pippa is well into her second trimester of her first pregnancy, and she looked rather pretty, I thought. She’s cut her hair into a more choppy shoulder-length bob and gotten highlights. It suits her. Plus, I think pregnancy just suits the Middleton women – it softens their faces, and the added weight just makes them look younger.

Incidentally, some wondered if the Duchess of Sussex would come out to support Serena Williams, since they’re such good friends. Meghan hasn’t come out yet, but my prediction is that Meg will come out tomorrow, especially if Serena plays on Center. Pippa admires Serena too – in a recent column for Waitrose Kitchen, Pippa wrote about how “keen” she is to have a fit, athletic pregnancy like Serena, and how she hopes to play tennis throughout her pregnancy – you can read more here.

Also, those espadrille wedges are awful, good God.

    The Middle girls really love their rope wedges…

    • Mrs. Wellen-Melon says:

      White leather t-strap flat sandals would have been so much cuter and comfy.

      I say this not in anger but in sorrow for what could have been.

      Now for the hat she’s holding: was her accessories stylist out sick? You do not pair a fedora with a white eyelet dress. It is against all laws of the universe.

      Also, I don’t know how many iterations of that dress I sewed for myself circa 1972.

  2. Beth says:

    Those shoes are horrid. Wedges are the worst, flip flops are more stylish

  3. Enn says:

    I’m living in my espadrilles this summer. They’re comfortable and look great for both work and going out.

    I really like the dress!

  4. Digital Unicorn says:

    The first Thursday is the best day to go, a lot of matches plus many of the seeded players are in the smaller courts so you have a better chance to see a top player without having to get a court ticket.

    The Fail is really desperate to make her a celebrity.

    The Marshmallow King really creeps me out, don’t know why but he has a really shady vibe that comes out in photo’s.

  5. Kcat says:

    Espadrilles are classic. No hate here, I think she looks great.

  6. Becks1 says:

    Agreed re: pregnancy and the middleton women. They definitely look better pregnant. Maybe it is just the added weight? Their faces look a lot better. And Pippa’s hair is really cute.

    I think that dress is really pretty and seems perfect for Wimbledon; I hate those shoes. Just awful.

  7. Pix says:

    The shoes are horrendous.
    Is it just me or does the brother always look like a scoundrel? I don’t know his story but he looks like he’d be good for gossip.

  8. Jess says:

    I love the dress! I would wear it in a heartbeat
    But I don’t like the shoes, at least not with this dress

  9. Vava says:

    what is it with all the center parts on celebrities these days? Not a fan.

    That dress would look 1000 times better without the ruffles. The shoes would look better with a shorter dress or skirt, but even then I’m not really into them. They definitely don’t work with this dress.

    • Moonpie says:

      Yep, excellent style comment.
      It is supposed to be a light summer dress and the wedges make the look look heavy heavy heavy and clumsy. The ruffles give a nod to centuries of maid service in aristo households and in hotels and bakery sales assistants do sometimes have ruffles straps on their aprons, too.

      @ Pippa
      Please decide: do you want to be the girl in the summer dress or the boho chick in wedges or the bakery sales assistant applying for a job as a maid at Buckingham Palace?

    • magnoliarose says:

      I don’t like any of it. The ruffles look like a uniform for baking things. Oh, I see Moonpie said the same.
      It is all awkward and the proportions are off as well as the accessories.

  10. Gigi LaMoore says:

    Not feeling the dress or shoes. Dress fits weirdly.

  11. SlightlyAnonny says:

    I feel like all the Midds need to get a good bra fitting, they are all fit women but I just want to give their bras a hoink and tighten their straps. Tatas need not be around the eyebrows but they could be a little higher.

  13. Moonpie says:

    Ruffles on the shoulder straps? She looks like a chambermaid / bakery sales assistant.

  14. Lizabeth says:

    Hate the shoes. Maybe if they had been a light tan color and had been tied in the back they wouldn’t have looked so clunky with this ruffled “milkmaid” dress.

  15. Tiffany says:

    I….I liked the shoes. I think they work great for Terribly Moderately Wealthy Pippa.

  16. homeslice says:

    I personally hate those ruffle sleeves on grown women, they are so little girl. My 6 yr old daughter would look adorable in that dress. The wedges are a just no. I hate the the ones that tie up the leg.
    Positives, her hair looks great and I love the sunnies!

  17. Nina says:

    I like the dress. The shoes are awful and they look so uncomfortable, especially if you are pregnant with swollen feet.

  18. Sage says:

    James makes me snicker… something false about him.
    Pippa looks good.

  19. Skylark says:

    *Tries to think of something positive to say about Pippa’s outfit and fails*

    Or wait, no! I’ve got one! White is a good colour to wear in Summer.

    There.

  20. Bliss 51 says:

    Decades ago I had a dress like that but in a cute print not eyelet and it was mini-skirted.

  21. Ginger says:

    She looks quite pretty. I think that the wedges are just fine. She looks both appropriate and comfortable. Pregnancy suits her.

  22. dawnchild says:

    James’ jacket is ridiculously short…no, no, no!
    Her dress looks like a Victorian pinafore. So no also.

  23. okay_then says:

    I’m probably the only one on here who likes Castañer espadrilles! They go so well with summer dresses and summer skirts.

  24. GigiC says:

    Those shoes and also just her in general. Like what is you doing with your life baby? Nagl

  25. Cerys says:

    I think the dress is pretty and summery. If the wedges were a neutral shade, they may not have looked so bad but I doubt it. Flattish sandals would have been better.
