At the time of the Royal Wedding as we all sat back to watch the grand affair aired live across our television stations, the nation was taken by surprise as a new beauty almost stole the show. Pippa Middleton was a vision as she stepped onto our screens in a beautifully form fitting white cowl-neck dress. Minutes later  the press began to flood the internet with appraising comments for Pippa  and trending on Twitter was the slightly harsh to Kate hashtag, “#PickedTheWrongSister”. It wasn’t long before Pippa became dubbed as “Her Royal Hotness” and became as talked about as her sister, the Duchess of Cambridge.

Phillipa Charlotte Middleton, the party planner, socialite and all round eye candy could put no Louboutined foot wrong in the eyes of the media. That was, until, Miss Middleton stepped out to a Celebrity Charity bash in aid of Breakthrough Breast Cancer which aims to raise £1 million for the charity. Pippa was slated by a British newspaper for her choice of make-up – dusky eyes, peachy cheeks and a slick of pink gloss – the crude article said, “it seems Pippa Middleton just couldn’t decide which part of her face to emphasise when she attended a charity event last night.”


Pippa has not been the only ‘celebrity’ to feel the wrath of the British rag, last year they reported on the popular actress, Katherine Heigl after she left the house make-up and product free claiming, “the 31-year-old looked pale and washed out, with her blonde hair looking in need of a good brush.”

Is it any wonder we have become an image obsessed society when even the British paps can’t keep their claws in about going au natural? As the saying goes, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.”
