2011 will go down in history as the Year of the Pips.
This year may have brought us the royal wedding, but Kate and Wills' nuptials caused all eyes to land on Kate's 28-year-old sister, Pippa Middleton.
Pippa's white, figure-hugging Sarah Burton maid of honor dress stole the show (well, almost!) in April. A fan page for Pippa's shapely rear soon took off on Facebook.
Following the wedding, Pippa became a celeb in her own right, being constantly trailed by the paparazzi and having the details of her sartorial choices -- and love life -- pored over in tabloids.
And since Pips still heads to work in London every week, we've been blessed with a bevy of wardrobe shots. This year, Pippa's worn a variety of coats; brightened things up with a hint of hot pink; sported a pilgrim-type dress; gone racy in red and (our fave) aced the dreaded leggings-as-pants look.
The younger Middleton's style was so influential that Modalu named a handbag after her -- "The Pippa" -- which of course she carries in every color.
