Pippa Middleton says royal wedding dress might have 'fit a little too well'

It's been nearly three years, but one of many enduring images of Prince William and Kate Middleton's lavish royal wedding is still that of Middleton's sister and bridesmaid, Pippa, and the dress that made her (and her posterior) well known in the States.

While speaking at a Women in Advertising and Communications dinner in London on Tuesday, the younger Middleton talked a little bit about the famous Alexander McQueen gown and the sudden recognition that came out of it, which by all accounts appears to be the first time she has talked about the pop culture moment in public. In April 2011, the form-fitting dress even prompted outlets like Metro UK to wonder whether she had stolen the show when the world watched her hold Kate's train as they walked into Westminster Abbey.

"As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and—you may say—its backside," she told the attendees. As far as the dress itself, she reflected that although she was "glad it fitted" on the day of the big wedding, "In retrospect, it fitted a little too well."

“She talked about the royal wedding and her career since," a guest tells the Daily Mirror. "She came across as really grateful for the opportunities but also talked about the pitfalls of her position.”

Middleton was also reportedly open about the lower-than-expected sales of her 2012 party planning book Celebrate and the response to it, which she admits was "difficult." According to Entertainmentwise, she continues to write columns for Vanity Fair, where she was hired as a contributing editor last year, as well as British cooking magazine Waitrose Kitchen.
