Bling is the thing to give this dress a lift

Yorkshire Post - YP Magazine - - Fashion -

HE can hardly be called an ugly sis­ter, but there is some­thing pan­tomime-ish about Pippa Mid­dle­ton’s out­fit, seen here on tour in the Nether­lands to pro­mote her book Cel­e­brate: A Year of Fes­tiv­i­ties for Fam­ily and Friends. The colour pur­ple is re­gal, but the shini­ness gives a gar­ish edge... rather too queenly? Pippa is ob­vi­ously keep­ing it de­mure, but there’s too much of this dress. The long sleeves, knee length and pe­plum col­lide to give a cos­tume feel, while the court shoes and clutch add zero. Sling­backs, pearls and a touch of gold would work bet­ter. – STEPHANIE SMITH
