Pippa Middleton, the younger sister of the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, tried her hand at modelling while studying at Edinburgh University, according to the Edinburgh Evening News. Pippa Middleton took part in university fashion shows similar to those where Kate first attracted the eye of Prince William.
Pippa took part in the school's charity fashion show at the City nightclub in 2004, at the age of 20. She was among a number of students to model clothes by Vivienne Westwood and Jean-Paul Gaultier. The show was hosted by the Channel Four newsreader Jon Snow and the comedian Miles Jupp. One university pal was quoted as saying, "As soon as Pippa arrived at Edinburgh, she was assiduous about joining the right social circle. She was very charming about it, but quite ruthless in cultivating the right friends". Pippa's sister Kate attracted national attention in 2002 after wearing a see-through dress to a university fashion show. The black and turquoise creation, made by fashion graduate Charlotte Todd, sold for 78,000 pounds at an auction in central London in March 2011.
Pippa Middleton, who is currently dating the city banker Alex Loudon, was spotted meeting up with Prince Harry at The Troubador pub in London's Chelsea last month. Pippa and Harry have remained good friends since the Royal Wedding in 29th April 2011.
