When Prince William married Kate Middleton, the one thing people couldn't stop talking about was her maid of honour and sister, Pippa Middleton. More specifically, we couldn't stop talking about Pippa's form-fitting white gown and how well it showed off her assets (if you know what I mean!). The younger Middleton sister is now finally talking about the dress that made her famous.
It turns out, Pippa chose that very dress to seem "insignifcant" next to the bride.
"I think the plan was not really for it to be a significant dress. Really just to sort of blend in with the train," Middleton said. "I suppose it's flattering, embarrassing, definitely. It wasn't planned," she said during an interview with the Today show.
"It sounds funny to say but we saw it as just a family wedding. I didn't realize perhaps the scale of it until afterwards," she said. "Even walking through the Abbey… I didn't see any TV cameras, so to me it was just performing in front of a lot of people and not necessarily the whole world."
There you have it! The dress that threw the world into a frenzy was meant to have Pippa camouflage into the background. It's a bit ironic, eh?
