Pippa Middleton In Alessandra Rich – HRH Prince Louis Of Cambridge Christening

Pippa Middleton joined the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge for the christening of Prince Louis Of Cambridge held at St James’s Palace in London today (July 9).

Catherine’s younger sister arrived at the chapel this morning dressed in a custom baby blue (is this another subtle hint?) Alessandra Rich dress, which due to its pointy collar and pleated skirt, appears to hail from the Spring 2018 collection.

I have always been a huge fan of Alessandra Rich, but I couldn’t get on board with this ’40s inspired dress (which looks similar to the Alexander McQueen dress Catherine wore to Pippa’s wedding).

I adore the colour, the matching fascinator and grey Jimmy Choo accessories, but the middle part from bust to the hips throws me off the look.

I’m getting a sense that the dress was designed for her to grow into, or re-wear, further along into her pregnancy, which is a smart idea. I just don’t like it’s been executed.

    The bust makes her boobs look very saggy (which they aren’t). Also could have used a belt or something else.

    I would like the dress if it didn’t make her legs look shorter.
    The color is beautiful but the whole outfit ages her terribly.

    I think you’ll find blue was the colour of the day in honour of Louis rather than any hints for Pippa’s baby … with Meghan having missed the memo.
    All the accessories are good – the dress not so much.

    She looks old. Seriously. I’ve never been a fan of her style ever…but this is just…why dress so matronly? Isn’t she the younger sister? I would see Camilla in this outfit.

    I really like the shoes though.

      Hit the nail on the head. This is for Camilla.

    Those boob darts, those shiny cuffs, that tragic collar, the fact she didn’t unbutton it by one to lessen the severity, and those unforgivable middle panels. She could have chucked on a plain, restrained, empire-line bump dress and have been set!

      Her mum would probably make less of a hatchet job of this, in fairness X-D (it would better suit her age)

      hahahahahahaha
      Her dress it terrible, the boobage area is horrendous

    Oh, poor thing. That dress is awful.

    ah…cute shoes!

    I like the color and that is all.

    All men wore the same outfit?

    I like the color of Pippa’s outfit and I think that’s pretty much what there is to say about it

    Are all inbred looking dudes in old Britain required to wear the same uniform?

  11. Caroline July 9, 2018 at 11:36 pm #

    Hate this look.
