Pippa Middleton – wearing green tweed and a pair of Johanna Simonds earrings – shieleded her eyes from the flashing bulbs as she made her way into the Brompton Club tonight (December 13th). Middleton RSVP’d yes to the Vicomte A. VIP dinner in London, a preppy clothing label owned by Arthur de Soultrait.
You remember Soultrait, hmmm? Parisian lad fella who invited Middleton down for a lavish do back in April, then got her caught up in a fake gun-wielding incident the following day? Oh yes, you say to yourself. That Soultrait.
Apparently Middleton and Mr. preppy clothing man – who met a a few years back at a mutual pals wedding – are still tight.
It also seems that Middleton’s sense of humor is showing through while she battles criticism over her book, Celebrate. The DoC’s younger sister took to the pages of this week’s edition of The Spectator to poke a little fun at herself.
“I have been much teased for my book,” Middleton wrote. ”Lots of journalists are saying that my advice is glaringly obvious. A spoof Twitter account called @pippatips offers such pearls as ‘enjoy a glass of water by getting a clean glass and pouring in water from a tap or bottle.’”
Middleton points out that even though her instructions in the how-to are quite elementary, it’s important to cover the basics when penning a guide.
“If I were to write a cookery book, for instance, I would be compelled to say that, to make an omelette, you have to break at least one egg. Actually, that’s not a bad idea. Or maybe I should write a sequel and call it Bottoms Up? Now that could be a bestseller.”
