Women everywhere may be enamored with Kate Middleton's style, but they're more interested in her sister Pippa's body. While onlookers oohed and ahhed over the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding gown, the internet started buzzing about the maid of honor's bum. And thus the Pippa Middleton obsession begun!
A recent poll commissioned by a UK TV station surveyed 2,000 women about their tanning preferences. The Daily Mail said they including a color chart of tan British celebrities and models walked through London illustrating their signature shades. Pippa's hue, dubbed "Royal Mocha," was the undeniable favorite picking up 60% of the vote. Cole Cappucino, Cheryl Cole's typical faux glow, came in second with 26%.
Pippa's skin color isn't her only desirable trait. Her butt is sending many ladies to their plastic surgeons hoping for a perkier tush. Miami-based plastic surgeon Dr. Constantino Mendieta, told Fox News that while breast augmentations used to be the most popular surgery, they're now taking a backseat to Pippa-esque butt lifts.
"The iconic figure was Jennifer Lopez and Kim Kardashian," Mendieta told Fox. "While lots of people love the overall shape of those women, many felt those derrieres were just a bit too big. But ever since the royal wedding, Pippa Middleton has become the new queen of the booty! She opens the doors to those who did not know you could have a small, shapely and perky backside without the large size." And this is not up for debate, folks. Pippa's rear end has a Facebook appreciation page, a Twitter account, and even it's own website. We don't think any other famous lady can makes such claims!
And Pippa's butt isn't her only body part getting attention. Dr. Richard W. Fleming of the Beverly Hills Institute told Fox that the many women come to him requesting replica facial features of Pippa and her royal sister. "The most requested features of both girls are their eyes and their nose," Fleming told Fox. "Both have beautiful, happy smiling eyes and very natural, perfectly proportional noses." (Eye jobs, people, they're happening!) He added that "Pippa has a more curvaceous yet lean body so we are getting lots of requests from patients asking for liposuction and body contouring to get the 'Pippa Body.'"
We appreciate that Kate and Pippa Middleton are pretty girls and even decent role models, but it's kind of freaky and sad that people want to swap out their own body parts for those of a popular celebrity like a Mrs. Potato Head doll. And what happens when (if?) Pippa's star wattage flickers out-will women require yet another new nose or butt? We're all for a quickie spray tan or a workout that boosts your butt, but maybe we should all try and be happy with our own natural body parts. Looking original will never go out of style.
