It looks like even Lindsay Lohan has caught the Pippa bug!

For Kim Kardashian’s star-studded nuptials on Saturday, the actress donned a white version of the glamorous green Temperley gown Pippa Middleton wore to her sister’s royal wedding; Temperley’s public relations team says they didn’t lend Lohan the gown, but believe she purchased it from their Los Angeles store for the Saturday wedding in Montecito, Calif.

And while conventional wedding wisdom says that a guest should never wear white, the hue was actually at the bride’s behest; she requested that the 450 guests “please wear black or white.”

The gown, a floor-length satin dress with a crystal brooch, was first created for the Duchess of Cambridge’s little sis. “I was honored that Ms. Pippa Middleton asked me to design her dress for the Royal Wedding evening reception,” the British designer said at the time. “She loved the green color, which looks great on her skin tone. The dress was designed especially for her with a fantastic open back and a full skirt for dancing in.”

While Middleton paired the show-stopper with a sparkling clutch and Aruna Seth heels, Lohan stuck with the white motif, adding a fringed updo plus jewels by Philip Press, Elodie K. and Erica Courtney to complete the look. Tell us: Who do you think looks better in Temperley?

Lohan is a pig, can’t dress up one as once a pig always a pig

the gown that Pippa wore was really designed for her, therefore it had the right measurements for her body. in fairness to Lindsay, they posted a picture which is not to her advantage. Face value, it is Lindsay all the way…

Lindsay looks good but she needs boob lift!

Pippa’s dress was made for her, so it fit her. Lindsay should have had the dress altered to fit her chest properly. Just altering the length on the straps by an inch or two, would have made a world of difference. She also should have wore one of those “stick on bras” or something. I have worn them before and they help keep things where they are supposed to be.
And, one more thing. I thought she told the court she was broke? How can she go and buy a designer dress and afford anything on the gift registry for the wedding and the shower?

I thought Lindsey Lohan was broke. She told the judge in her court case that she couldn’t afford counseling…… but she can afford an expensive designer gown? Pippa looks very nice in the dress, Lindsey not so much.

If only lindsey had worn it like Pippa (not so much cleavage showing). It would have looked a little more classy. But we all know poor Lindsey has no class. Less prostitute, more princess Lindsey!

Goldie on

It’s weird how the same dress looks so different on the two of them. LL looks like a hooker while Pippa looks very elegant.

I am not a fan of Lindsey Lohan ..and Pippa Middleton is a very classy lady even if she wasn’t the sister of Catherine Duchess of Cambridge. Lindsey needs some serious tips on the clothes she chooses white dress or not. So I pick Pippa ….BTW Lindsey get a new hairdresser too.

Bella on

The dress definitely suits Pippa better, especially seeing how the dress was originally designed specifically for her. While Lindsay has definitely looked worse, the dress doesn’t suit her at all, nor does she do the dress justice.
