Leg Battle: Pippa vs. Kate
Which Middleton has the better legs?
Should Harry & Pippa Date?
Would you like to see Prince Harry start dating Kate's sister?
She’s arguably the most famous sister-in-law in the world, and while eyes were on Kate Middleton’s stunning wedding gown on April 29, 2011, her sister Pippa Middleton also garnered lots of attention for her scene-stealing bridesmaid dress that accentuated her assets, so to speak.

Since then, Pippa has been bombarded by paparazzi who seem just as interested in her street style as they are in her sister Kate’s ball gowns. While Kate and her groom Prince William are constantly hounded about having a baby, Pippa’s dating life is splashed across the tabloids as well. She even came under attack recently when a friend of hers in Paris pulled a fake gun on photographers while the 28-year-old was riding in the passenger seat.

The anniversary of her big sister’s fairy-tale wedding falls on Sunday, so we thought we’d give you our guide to Pippa’s journey into the spotlight in the gallery above.

And it wouldn’t be a Pippa post without some butt shots of the bridesmaid.

No doubt her Sarah Burton gown at the royal wedding was a show-stopper, but who could forget the curve-hugging emerald green Alice Temperley gown she wore later on in the evening?!

In addition to her seriously sexy style statements, Pippa’s love life is also fascinating to the media. From her hang out with then boyfriend Alex Loudon at Wimbledon this past June to her outing with George Percy at Queen’s Club earlier that month, Pippa seems to be enjoying her single life and her gentleman callers!

There was also the Facebook campaign to set up the brunette beauty with Prince William’s hot brother, Prince Harry, after the royal wedding, but nothing ever came of that.
