The biggest revelation to come out of Matt Lauer's interview with Pippa Middleton for The Today Show's is that her bridesmaid dress at her sister and royal Kate Middleton's wedding three years ago was that it was intended "really just to blend in with the train." Nope.
Speaking to the media and Twitter attention centered around her derriere, she explained, "It was completely unexpected. The plan was not really for it to be a significant dress."
And apparently, this weird "I'm a normal!" strain that borders on an inferiority complex could be applied to her whole attitude toward the wedding at the time. She explained, "It sounds funny to say, but we saw it, as just a family wedding. And actually, I didn't realize, perhaps, the scale of it until afterwards. We all took on the the roles as any family would." Whatever you say, lady. Check out more from part one of the interview above and find part two here.
