Talk about creating a story over an ‘also ran,’ a runner-up, bridesmaid-and-not-the-bride (literally in this case) Pippa Middleton has now revealed (finally!) that the famous bridesmaid dress she wore to her sister’s wedding, was meant to be “insignificant”.
My God, now that the truth is out, how is the world going to deal?!
You might recall Pippa’s Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen creation in white that hugged her rear in such a fantastic way she was accused of taking attention from her sister the Duchess of Cambridge. When the bride’s sister held the wedding gown train her back to the camera, Pippa showed the world exactly what a fabulous bottom she sported and from then on the press has been on the story. Yes, the Duke and Duchess’ wedding was a very big deal, but as Pippa says of her dress: “I think the plan was not really for it to be a significant dress. Really just to sort of blend in with the train.”
Do you ever get the feeling that with all cyber space to write stories across that so much of what we read, tweet, post, write even is trivial at its best, completely useless at its worst? Yes, Pippa is a celeb of sorts (as are the Duke and Duchess, all the royals actually) but wasn’t this her sister’s special day…and wasn’t the wedding enough of a media circus to begin with? Must we really be still talking about this lady’s pert round bottom displayed in her bridesmaid dress three years after the fact?
This story is about fashion (of a sort), celebrity and spectacle (a trio no one can truly ignore) but somehow we still have Pippa’s booty on our minds. It’s a story that doesn’t seem to be able to die.
And one we happen to be blogging about it.
