Pippa Middleton quite clearly stole the show at a charity boxing match on Saturday night.

Despite being surrounded by Royals and celebrities, no one could argue the Duchess of Cambridge's sister was the centre of attention.

While her plunging red halterneck dress by Temperley was on trend - both Geri Halliwell and Prince William's ex girlfriend Jecca Craig wore similar versions to the event - Pippa's gown was slightly more revealing.

Not subject to the same protocol as Kate, the pretty brunette can wear whatever she wants and get away with it.

But did Pippa need to make such a bold wardrobe statement?

At the Royal Wedding, her fitted but demure Alexander McQueen dress was enough to propel her to instant stardom.

And up til now, she has always presented herself as elegant and ladylike with her style choices - a refreshing alternative that has no doubt contributed to her popularity.

She was however subject to an embarrassing moment at London Fashion Week earlier this month.

Pippa almost - but not quite - suffered a wardrobe malfunction when her dress pulled up after she sat down.
