Pippa Middleton let her hair down as she enjoyed a night on the town with friends. The 29-year-old Celebrate author was pictured leaving Lou Lou’s in London’s Mayfair at 2.30am in high spirits. The private members’ club is a favourite place to party for Pippa and she was joined last night by friends including banker Tom Kingston, 34. Pippa, who will become an aunty in July, smiled and giggled as she left the club last night to take a taxi home along with her companions. Pippa couldn’t be missed in her baggy, bright pink Aztec-print trousers. Her choice of outfit proves she’s a dedicated follower of fashion with Stella McCartney, Matthew Williamson and Alexander McQueen just some of the designers including loud print pants in their Autumn/Winter 13 collections.
Pippa’s were from Temperley London, a favourite brand of her and her sister Kate. Perhaps in a nod to her royal connection, the pants are called ‘Sovereign Silk Trousers’ and cost £295. The designers say the trousers as are ‘inspired by Ballet Russes costumes from the early 1900’s and made of soft crepe-de-chine, the ikat style print is graphic and eye catching.’ Pippa teamed her trousers with black top, beige jacket and long gold necklace. She carried a clutch bag – a fashion accessory championed by her sister the Duchess of Cambridge. Iconic handbag designer Lulu Guinness said she wa1s planning to make clutch bags smaller next season because of the ‘Kate effect.’ Pippa’s bag was big enough to carry her mobile phone, which she was seen pulling out in the taxi and talking animatedly into on speaker so she didn’t have to hold it to her ear.
Perhaps she was calling her boyfriend, stockbroker Nico Jackson, 35, who wasn’t pictured with her at Lou Lou’s. But luckily as she got tired she had Mr Kingston’s shoulder to lean on as she rested her head on his arm as the taxi drove them home. Following the publication of her book Celebrate, Pippa’s latest project involves writing a column for Waitrose magazine. So far she has advised readers on how to make sushi for dinner parties and how to have the perfect Provence picnic.
