New York City had a brush with royalty this week. Well, kind of.

Pippa Middleton crossed the pond and dined in the Meatpacking District, and unlike some members of her extended family, she managed to keep her clothes on. Robert Pattinson, meanwhile, hit L.A. doing what he does best: looking hot.

Along with these star sightings, Celebuzz has compiled a list of this week’s who did what.

So come along with us as we go beyond the velvet rope!
