Paging PETA: Pippa Middleton is wearing fur.
A fur hat, to be specific, paired with a vivid yellow coat by Katherine Hooker. The famous Middleton sis wore the chic winter-weather outfit to Wednesday's Cheltenham Festival, the annual horse racing event held at London's Cheltenham Racecourse.
We actually were expecting Pips to be wearing a classic Katherine Hooker coat (the designer mentioned to us two weeks ago that Pippa was in her store shopping for the Cheltenham races). But we didn't foresee Pippa channeling her sister so clearly -- at the 2006 Cheltenham Festival, Kate Middleton arrived wearing a similar Katherine Hooker designer and a nearly identical fur hat.
Both Middleton sisters are big Katherine Hooker fans. But who knew they were both so into fur? We'd only seen Pips in fur a handful of times (like here and here), but a massive hat takes things to another level.
Bold fashion moves, Middleton ladies. Next time, how about these Alexander Wang fur sandals?
