The two most well-documented things about Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding were Kate and Pippa Middleton's custom-made Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton gowns — and Pippa's backside in her bridesmaid's dress. Now, nearly three years after the April 29, 2011 wedding, the usually-private Pippa publicly spoke out for the first time about how she almost stole the show. Yesterday, Pippa was a speaker at the Women in Advertising and Communications dinner in London and joked about how her curvy posterior found her fame.

“As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and — you may say — its backside," Pippa said to 400 attendees. The Duchess of Cambridge's younger sister remarked that she was “glad [the dress] fitted" on the day of the wedding. Pippa also added, “In retrospect, it fitted a little too well."

We think it fit just right! It's nice to hear her funny thoughts about her dress long after the wedding (and birth of her nephew, Prince George), since she's served as inspiration for lots of bridesmaid dress choices ever since.
