Pippa Middleton—the royal sister-in-law who stole the show at her sister Kate’s wedding to Prince William last summer—is making headlines this week on a couple of counts. First, it was scandal, after Miss Middleton was photographed in a car with a French aristocrat who aimed a toy gun at the paparazzi pursuing them. Today she’s in the news once again, this time on a more positive note, having been named one of Time magazine’s 100 most influential people, along with her princess sister (because being a regular fixture in supermarket tabloids now counts as influence). In any case, it’s hard to deny that the girl is a joy to look at. On that note, here’s a gallery of her better shots for your perusing pleasure, along with some info on the British socialite’s recent media spectacle.
