Pippa Middleton may not be as royal as her big sis Kate (oops, sorry, Kate’s going by Catherine these days… Duchess Catherine to be exact!) but she has captured our hearts nonetheless. Pippa was named the “Number One Society Singleton” by the UK’s Tatler magazine back in 2008, even beating out singer James Blunt. Since then, she’s been perceived as a socialite and received a large amount of media attention focusing on her social life and lifestyle. Her fame has escalated even more, particularly in the U.S., now that her sister has tied the knot with Prince William. These days Pippa works part-time for her parents’ company Party Pieces, where she edits the web magazine Party Times. It includes party tips, entertainment ideas, fun recipes, as well as interviews. Sounds appropriate, don’t you think?

Pippa briefly worked for a public relations firm promoting luxury products a few years ago, so it’s no wonder that the beautiful brunette knows how to appreciate gorgeous designer sunglasses. Seen here donning a pair of rectangular Gucci sunglasses at the 2011 French Open in Paris, she laughed and joked with friends while watching the match. Want to snag a pair for yourself? They’re available in Havana with brown gradient lenses and shiny black with gray shaded lenses.
