When a source emailed me this weekend to ask if I knew what shows Pippa Middleton would be attending New York fashion week my reaction was something like this: Whaaa?
In my Labor Day weekend Internet blackout, I had no idea the Duchess’s little sis was even in town. But she’s here. She was seen dining with hotelier (and ex-beau of Uma Thurman and Chelsea Handler) Andre Balazs at his Shelter Island spot Sunset Beach over the weekend, US Weekly is reporting.
And with fashion week right around the corner, the Daily News is reporting that “the stylish set are keeping Middleton’s name on any show or party guest lists.” Hmm…the same PR company that reps Balazs’s properties (including Sunset Beach) does rep some of New York’s biggest designers.
Middleton is likely here to promote her new book, but what better way to get her name and face out there than to show up in the front rows of New York fashion week? We’ll be looking for you Pippa!
