'Surprised and delighted' was Catherine Deane's reaction when she saw Pippa Middleton wearing her creation earlier this year - so we can imagine she must be pretty chuffed to have bagged a double P-Middy whammy. Because this week, Kate's little sister stepped out in style wearing another number by the Hong Kong-based designer - this time, a gorgeous dove grey dress.
The style may be similiar to the coral and navy frock Pippa wore to her friend's wedding earlier this year - see the striped silk, the clinched waist and the just-above-the-knee hemline - but this time, Pippa dressed down the look for a chilly day in Chelsea. She added a pair of snug black tights and winter boots - rather like Kate's, we might add - accessorising with a matching bag, sunnies and a carefully-placed book by Pete Townshend.
'It's really great for Catherine as a new designer in the UK to have the support of Pippa for her designs and we hope to see the relationship continue into the future,' a spokesperson told us today. Hats off to that. Although both dresses are now sold out, the Autumn Winter collection is available on Harvey Nichols and My Wardrobe so we say get involved.
It was in July that Grazia Daily chatted to Catherine Deane about her starry clientele - which also includes Beyoncé, Lana Del Rey and Selena Gomez - after Pippa wore her gorgeous coral dress (another fine example of wedding guest dressing, of course). At the time, Catherine told us she was preparing for 'the next level of exposure' and we'd say the royal-in-law is certainly helping with that!
UPDATE: 'I didn't know Pippa was going to wear the dress, it was a lovely surprise,' Catherine exclusively told Grazia Daily about the latest Pippa sighting. 'It is always exciting to see somebody wearing one of my dresses and we certainly hope to continue seeing Pippa choosing Catherine Deane designs.'
