Pippa Middleton Accused Of Padding Her Butt For The Royal Wedding

Remember that famous shot of Pippa Middleton, holding up the train at her sister’s wedding, shot from behind in her curve-hugging Alexander McQueen bridesmaid gown? You probably do, but this is the internet so here’s a picture of it anyway:

This was the angle that won Pippa the dubious distinction of “rear of the year” in England. So it goes, TLC did a special entitled Crazy About Pippa (I guess nothing punchier rhymed with Pippa) and brought in some “experts” to discuss her butt. One of these experts is suspicious that Pippa padded her posterior (I’m so sorry):

“I’m not convinced that it’s completely natural,” said London spa owner Lesley Reynolds Kahn. “Because I think, if you look at other photos of her and you see her in jeans, she’s got quite a flat bottom.

The Daily News puts forth this image as maybe-kinda evidence:

Setting aside the fact that in one photo she is wearing jeans/flats and in the other she is wearing a dress/heels: is it true? Could it be that the ass requested at plastic surgery offices round the world was all an illusion? Just a confluence of clever padding and flattering angles and lies? Was it all just big, dreamlike con? Is there nothing to believe in anymore?

Sorry! This poll is now closed.

    i wasnt too crazy about her butt after the wedding actually, but that shot on the right in the jeans is a beautiful thing. also, i am mentally gaping at myself right now. shame.

    The wedding dress is bias cut and she is undoubtedly wearing some sort of shapewear underneath it, as well as the aforementioned heels, as well as the fact that many of the “best” pictures of her ass are when she’s walking up stairs. All of this stuff comes together to produce really flattering photographs, unlike flats and not especially flattering jeans and walking down a sidewalk.

    her butt looks bigger in the jeans which really isn’t saying much. more importantly, this is a human being we are talking about, she is more than just her (ass)ets.

    Am I the only person who doesn’t really see what all the fuss is over Pippa’s butt? She’s got a great figure, sure. But her butt doesn’t look at all big to me. Maybe it’s especially shapely? I really can’t tell from pictures in that bridesmaid’s dress.

    Maybe it’s because I have a pretty big butt and everyone else’s butts tend to look tiny to me.

    That or the focus of my butt-noculars is off from seeing images like this: http://bit.ly/oVeSAc

      Me too! I understand why people are talking about her because she’s really damn pretty, but her backside doesn’t seem worthy of a discussion group?? It’s not like Kim Kardashian’s.

  • Tobi

    I’m pretty sure her butt looks the same size in both pictures.

  • applejuice

    Who care?? And I don’t even mean ‘who cares what Pippa or celebrities or whatever do’; but who cares if she did pad her bum? Why ‘accused’? Is padding really that bad? I’ve even seen some mags proclaim it a scandal! WTF? I don’t understand. Are we not suppose to use shapewear at all?

    Her butt looks like she needs a good humpin

  • senseless_guy

    Yeah, padding your butt is outrageous but padding your bra is perfectly ok.
