Kate and Pippa Middleton: Two plain janes ruling the beauty & fashion heap

Updated on February 15, 2011
Pippa Middleton: the new face of beauty?
Pippa Middleton: the new face of beauty?
Kate Middleton: plain jane besides her prince
Kate Middleton: plain jane besides her prince

     Are Pippa and Kate Middleton the new faces of "beauty"? The sisters now rule the limelight because the elder is marrying into royalty and the younger is the chief bridesmaid. So, since they're up there and they're constantly in the news it should follow that they now represent a new kind of beauty and the new leaders of fashion, right?

     Honestly, without a drop of envy from a plain woman's point of view? Kate is only mildly pretty and Pippa Middleton looks like a guy with hairy balls. There, the plain and honest opinion of a woman who doesn't really care about the matter but is totally fed up with all these royal wedding hysteria.

     Pippa and Kate Middleton are not ugly women. But neither are they beautiful in the true sense of the word. You want beauty? Nicole Kidman. Angelina Jolie. Halle Berry. Charlize Theron. No, dear. Jennifer Aniston is only attractive and Emma Watson pixie-like. Julia Roberts is only magical and Meryl Streep is a classic. It doesn't matter. Both Pippa and Kate may be rich and well-connected, but there's no arguing the fact that they're also plain-looking women, period. And there's nothing wrong with that. A mildly attractive woman who can hold the attention of a charming prince long enough for him to want to marry her is tops on my list anytime.

     What is totally objectionable about all this fawning and oh-ahing is the seeming attempt by fashion critics to render the entire world blind as bats when they look at Pippa and Kate. Is it really important that Kate Middleton reach the legendary status of Diana? Because honestly as the next fashion leader, she looks too common (referring to the way she looks and not to her breeding) to even be the leader of anything. The same goes for Pippa Middleton, who's really not that photogenic either. She may be charming and pretty in person but as a subject of photography? She sucks big time.

     The true measure of Kate's beauty is this: Do our eyes follow her and only her when we see pictures of her with Prince William? Does the prince fade in the background when Kate is beside him? Look at old pictures of Diana and Charles. Just about any toad can stand beside Diana and we won't even notice. Prince Philip could even exchange places with Charles during the marriage vows and we wouldn't care. Does anyone even remember what Charles looked like the day he and Diana got married? What was he wearing? What was he doing? He and Diana exchanged a kiss on the terrace but did it really matter even if it was Andrew doing the kissing as long as the woman was Diana? No wonder Charles went gaga and went and hid inside Camilla's unwashed doodah.

     Prince William does not fade beside Kate. He stands tall and commanding beside her and is obviously confident in his own skin. He may have thinning hair like his dad but he looks so much like his mom that it doesn't matter. He is a superstar, no doubt about it. Unlike Charles, he will not be marrying a supernova who will eventually eclipse and dim his star. Kate's plainness, in fact, seems to show his beauty off to better light. In the looks department, it's the royal guy this time who leads and not his plain Jane bride, which makes this the fairytale for the new age.

     As for Pippa, four words: guy with hairy balls . 'Nough said.

      Jane, who isn't plain! 7 months ago

      I am sick of hearing and reading the term, "Plain Jane". Just stop using that to describe ugly/homely, etc.. Don't you get it how that bother's some people by the name of of Jane? Plus, you're talking about Kate and Pippa. Pippa, for crying out loud! What the hell is a Pippa? Is that like Pippy Longstockings? IMHO, Pippa is dumbass name, not even worthy of "Plain Jane". How about Pitiful Pippa and Kooky Kate. But, please can it with the "Plain Jane" crap and simply state "Plain Kate"; "Plain Pippa". Additionally, enough already about either one of them. There ARE OTHER PEOPLE to talk about besides the damned royals, you know. You state way too much on them much too often!

      I completely agree. Kate is Pretty but her damn expensive dresses, done hair and above all her title is what attracts public. And sorry to say kate-lovers none of these things make beauty. Beauty is something natural clothes, accessories, hair extensions.............titles can make one look attractive but not BEAUTIFUL. And it's a fact that Kate is nothing as compared to EXCEPTIONAL AND PHENOMENAL DIANA ,they have nothing in common except height. Moreover Kate is very lazy (and seems dumb,srry for dat) which is never covered by media. She has no done anything yet for which she could be praised. She places her Middletons above everything and does not give a damn about Wills family which is mean!! well back to point.....talking about beauty...her pics before she was a royal shows how "BEAUTIFUL"

      she actually was and her taste of fashion was......OMG HORRIBLE. she got a nose job which improved her appearance a bit. And cmon we all know how influential media is......if media would start saying that Angelina is ugly and keep emphasising on dat a millions minds would change to believing dat she is ugly....trust me or not it's true bcoz we have a tendency to see and believe wat we r made to see and believe.

      And talking about how sesible she is... well google kate wardrobe malfunctioning. Till date im wondering wat william saw in her?? but watever his life his choice his wife and i wish them happiness.

      the thing is just dat royals are well covered by media and are exaggerated all the time. And public of UK is blinded by their royalty... dat's all.

      As someone who lives in England, the media is constantly shoving anything to do with the 'Royal' family down our throat, ignoring the fact that most of us couldn't give a shit. A frog could marry one of them and they would be herelded as beautiful (the fact that Harry is not Charles' son goes unmentioned, too). Personally, I think Kate is very plain, and it would be nice if we didn't her about her so much. How can we say we have a society based on social equality when they're held up above everyone else?

      I just laughed when I saw your list of "who is beautiful". Beauty is in the eye of the one who looks. It changes with the decades, with the year and the seasons and is not the same in every country. It is like saying: that wine is not good. HERE is a list of good wines you should like. You're stupid.

      I don't find either attractive and blame the American media for the notion that they are beuatiful. Years of partying have taken its toll and both look older than their age. Diana was in a class by herself and there are far more attractive Royals today.

      I, too, agree with Sarine. I find it rather amusing how the media states that either one of these women are beautiful and weak minds go right along with it. Kate Middleton is damn lucky William, unfortunately, decided to marry her after her many years of "hanging" on to him. She IS just a plain, disgustingly scrawny, woman who wears nice, expensive garments. And, I find it appalling that William would give his mother's ring to her. What was he thinking? I do hope that William is happy with her and he was not pressured into marrying her.

      Jenny Penny Books. The Ugly Face of Beauty. Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who is the fairest of them all. The ugly face of beauty is a very powerful story, it has a good modern plot line and will definitely be of appeal to female readers, to which many I feel will relate, not least to the adoption issue. It contains a diverse variety of subject matter including jealousy, bullying, rejection, spite, insecurity, heartache, tragedy, some gruesome burning and 'comeuppance' etc.; even a touch of the metaphysical (which I particularly like); with an underlying and very important much needed message - particularly at the moment when the media seem intent on promoting 'glamour' as being the prime aim in life for young women.

      The Ugly Face of Beauty is a densely plotted psychological drama about the fragility of beauty, and therefore its inadequacy as a foundation for self esteem; it is also about how beauty can be a mask for inner ugliness. The novel tells the story of two teenage sisters, Jane and Linda. Jane is physically unattractive but intelligent and good-hearted. Linda, on the other hand, is beautiful but selfish, shallow and cruel. The binary opposition of these characters – the stark contrast of protagonist and antagonist – is reminiscent of Victorian fiction, and indeed the story has a matching flavour, capturing the hugely eventful, rollercoaster plotting of that period, as the opposing characters’ fortunes counterpoint each other, leading to a conclusion in which they each get their just deserts. If you are one of the many who feel that character-driven high drama (sometimes touching on melodrama) is something sadly lacking in modern fiction, the The Ugly Face of Beauty is for you. The story is filled with clashes, conciliations, heartbreak and hidden secrets: a veritable brew of drama, yet entirely modern – even hip – in its outward character.

      The Ugly Face of Beauty is a very powerful story and shows all the emotions of jealousy, deep-seated anger, hatred, kindness and love. The story is true of many siblings that it will strike a chord with those in the same or similar situations and therefore they will be able to associate with it. Its a story that can give hope and inspiration for those who want to change their situation or life, help those who are unable to change it immediately. Many valuable lessons are withing the pages.

      From the voice of the story, although good for an adult audience, I feel it will strike a particular chord with young adults. Its starts with action, which continues throughout the book, right to the end, and is written in such a way as to make the reader want to keep reading to find out what happens to Linda and Jane.

      All the characters are strong and play an equal part, no-one has been left out or forgotten. You can feel the strength of the characters, their feelings and emotions as one works through the story. The survival retaliation by Jane against Linda is nicely balanced. Nancy portrays a single mum, struggling to survive and raise two teenage girls. There is not much about Nancy herself, and her own feelings and thoughts, although this story is meant to be about Linda and Jane, and it achieves that aim and remains focused on them throughout.

      The story line is very strong, and I feel your book ought to be published as this story rings so true to life and could help so many people, not only young adults but older people as well; I think anyone who reads it will be touched by the emotions portrayed, especially by the main characters Jane and Linda, and associate with it in one way or another.

      WHY THIS BOOK SHOULD BE PUBLISHED

      The Ugly Face of Beauty

      This book tells a story that will open the minds and hearts of those who live in the world of beauty, hoping that they’ll see beyond beauty and take notice of other talents and fine qualities that sometimes go unnoticed in people who don’t share the same interest as them. Beauty, popularity, wealth and perfection, how does this fit into our everyday lives?

      In today’s society we are plagued by perfection. Just looking at all the glitz and glamour advertised in shops, magazines, television and fashion shows portraying perfect images of Models all made up to look a certain way is enough to make an ordinary person feel not good enough. And most teenagers are stressed out because they are not happy about the way they look and sometimes this could lead to stress, anorexia, steroid use, plastic surgery, slimming aids and drugs, all in the name of vanity. How vain are you and how far will you go in the name of beauty.

      The world has become fixated on beauty and glamour and teens feel it the most. They want recognition and acceptance and compliments. And if they can’t meet the expectations of others then they are rejected, in a bad way. Cruel jokes and remarks, hate mail, ugly insults and much more which could lead to devastating results, like suicide, or sometimes become introverts living in an egg shell afraid to step out in society where prying judgmental eyes are roaming looking to pounce on them because they don’t fit in or meet their expectations. This book is a reality of what goes on in the minds of many who are beautiful, vain and flawless. It takes a hard look at beauty and the pain it can cause. What would you do if you lost your looks? Would you go down gracefully or would you reeve havoc on your body to perfect it, no matter what the cost. And what about inner beauty, does that count? Are you judging people on their appearance, their outer shell. Beauty comes from within. One can never judge a book by its cover. Open the book and read its contents. Same as, get to know the person, their character, see their personality through conversation, or by participating in some activity, together which is highly engaging. Vanity has become an obsession with many.

      Can one also say that it is evil; being human and never satisfied with the way you are and how you look and taking beauty to the extremes? Evil comes in many forms. Is vanity one of the many obsessions?

      Many will deny that fact. And beauty is a billion dollar thriving industry. Everyone wants to look their best, and that is good. However beauty has become competitive, expensive and stressful. Who was the best, outstanding lady and who was the worst? So the tabloids read.

      Vanity is a cruel game. Today you’re hot, tomorrow you’re not, because you had one off day and now you’re history. “Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the most fairest of them all? Wicked! Snow White is the purest and fairest.” Are we all living a lie? Are we true to ourselves? Or are people just living in fantasy land. What would you choose health or beauty? You’d probably say, both. But we simply cannot have it all. And many want to be fairer than Snow White. Ready to out shine the other one and be beauty queen, who’s admired, always, and refuse to be second best. People become jealous, envious full of rage, vengeful, angry, when the spot light fades from them and begins to shine on another. You’re so vain that you would go through the pain and then some … Are you just beautiful and nothing else? Using your well perfected body and beauty to get by. Does that still work in today’s society. Are we programmed to think that beauty rules over everything else. Anyway beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What appears to be unattractive to one person, may appear very beautiful to another person. It’s the way one sees a thing. God made us all beautiful, each person unique, and we should embrace our unique qualities, and physical features and be happy. I definitely think this book should be published. And not only is it for teen’s, adults would enjoy this book too. This is vanity at its worst, a real nightmare which will leave readers emotionally shocked. The moral of the story: “Beauty is only skin deep.”

      Sorry, I find this pretty funny from a guy's perspective.

      You're right about Pippa (ugly) and Kate (mildly attractive). However, then you go and do with Prince William what others are doing with Kate and Pippa - pretending he's much better looking than he is.

      William is fugly. Kate is mildly attractive (as you say). You're being hypocritical in rightly bringing up how overrated Kate and Pippa are but then overrating William in the same respect.

      I can say without a drop of envy (your words) that William is ugly. You want male beauty? Iker Casillas, Brad Pitt, Chris Hemsworth etc.

      I think Diana had a shy sort of charm that people really responded to. She did have a bit of a nose but what really worked for her was those lovely eyes and that shy smile. Who knows what star quality consists of but she had it. Kate, is elegant and lovely. I wouldn't call her plain. But she does not draw as much attention as Diana did. Which, if one thinks about it, would be another disaster in the making. They are a team and that is obvious. Not the same could ever be said of Charles and Diana.

      I don't think people are jealous of the Middletons, they are just telling the truth. Both women are plain janes, Kate is cute at best and the girl next door. There is nothing wrong with commenting on that. If you all who prefer inner beauty have a problem, that is your preference. Everyone has a right to an opinion. I have found men who go for inner beauty have been quite ugly on the inside themselves, so they know to look for someone opposite. Maye William inherited his father's preference for ordinary looking women ie. Camilla Parker Bowles.

      What happened to old fashioned love? where someone could just love someone for who they are. Sarine spoke true, and I blame the media and not limited to, including yourselves. We all watch enjoy watching this crap. We're just in denial. The least out of all this is that we can only hope that love is real... can't we all just appreciate it for that? I'm no big fan of the royal family, or any sort of materialism but be happy for what they have. For a prince to fall in love with an average girl, I call it a win for love. Its better than that disney crap where everything is perfect. So, kudos to Sarine for being REAL. You're the first commenter on the royal family that I actually agree with most points. For the negative comments directed at the Middletons, Give it a break.I don't even know/like the prince, but I would give him my deepest respect. He doesn't appear to be a cocky arrogant rich spoiled brat that most people would be in that position.

      This one is just for you Mark, I work around the laws in my government, I've never seen a good lawyer talk as much rubbish as you. Over-compensate for your lack of skills and experience somewhere else. You sound like a child and make other idiots look good.

      And for the people who are only concerned about their outer beauty, you'll always be ugly. If you understood true beauty, You could find it in the darkest places. It took me 3-4 years before I found the one for me. I'm average guy who's work would take days out of the week.. yet she would still be there. She could have a dozen guys doing doing CK ads taking her.But she chose me and ever-since then, shes the only angel I see.. even when she's wearing track pants and sweating outta her arm pits n stinks like me after a work out. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and everyone always has an opinion. I don't care, what others say about my relationship, nor do I think the Prince would care either. =]

      It is refreshing to hear real harsh opinions, better than fake fairy tale ones. Here's my two bucks. Enjoy.

      Really a lot of very horrible people on here. Kate may not be the most stunning woman in the world, but than neither is 99.999% of the female population by those standards. She is however a pretty woman and seems to be happy and make Wiliam happy, which is all that really matters.

      First of all, Sarine, it doesn't matter why you wrote this blog. Be it jealousy or just an observation, it seems really petty and shallow. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but you don't have to be so nasty about it, especially when you're not so pretty yourself.

      I'm American, by the way, and I think Kate is beautiful. She may not look like a Hollywood starlet, but she's quite lovely! Pippa may not be as pretty as Kate to some, but she's still attractive. To say she looks like a man with hairy balls is just absurd, even if you don't think she's all that. And for all of you talking about Brittish and American standards of beauty, that is also ridiculous! Every individual person has their own idea of physical beauty, no matter where they are from. And please don't compare anyone to movie stars. They have plastic surgeons and awesome makeup artists at their disposal. Anyone can look gorgeous with the right makeup! And if that's your idea of true beauty, then the whole world is full of women who look like men with hairy balls. And we're all in trouble!

      I never accepted the media hype on this Pippa character. I mean get real! As for Kate, she will always be compared to Diana, because we miss her. In the end, Diana told the world how she would die and why, and it all came to pass. It did not surprise me that after her death, when she could not continue defend herself, she was attacked and discredited in every way. To me, Kate seems as superficial as the queen.

If Kate wasn't married to that William dude, then no one would even give her a second glance. She's just an ordinary plain Jane. And her lips (or LACK OF) are definitely not attractive. Ewwwww gross.

      Thank you for finally saying it. I was beginning to think that you white folks were under some sort of mass delusion regarding those typically unprepossessing British women. FYI, I'm a man, and I'm just calling them like I see them

      LOL. Do I sense some jealousy here? One must be blind or highly prejudiced in order to come to the conclusion that Kate is 'plain'. I am not sure if, by your examples of several Hollywood actresses, you judge beauty by clothing and glamour. I agree, Kate does not dress or make herself up as flashily as these women. However, she has her own classic, elegant style which stands out far more.

      Pippa is certainly not as pretty as Kate, but she holds her own. She exudes class, which my dear, you seem to be lacking.

      I ditto Luis' comment in that I, too, agree with much of Sarine's sentiments, but not with the very cruel way she expressed it. And I find it quite ironic that when Sarine was given a taste of her own medicine, meaning others used the same cruel words to describe her appearance that she used to describe the Middleton sisters, Sarine went totally quiet and never posted another comment. Cruel words hurt, don't they?

      And finally, I'd be willing to bet the family farm that Mark isn't an attorney. I know several, and not one of them would take time to devote to such meaningless dribble.

You know nothing of true beauty and are extremely disrespectful to women. If you are indeed married, I feel nothing but sympathy for your poor wife.

      Okayyyy - I completely agree! Neither girl is beautiful. Average-bordering-on-pretty, perhaps. But really they are just super-thin women in nice clothes. At some point, people began to equate that notion with being beautiful, which it is not.

      I also think they both look rather plain. Kate knows this, that's why she tries to be unnaturally slim, since there isn't much to redeem her. She and her sister also look a bit mannish, especially when they smile (I think their teeth are too big for their face, that's more of a man-like quality). I also don't understand what's the big fuss over Pippa... She just happened to be at the right place at the right time. But good for them though, it just goes to show you don't have to be drop-dead gorgeous to marry royalty and be world-famous (though it certainly helped Grace Kelly a lot). You need money and connections!

      @ Mark - By your own standards you have proven you're ugly. How can anyone reflect on your first post positively after reading the others? One now questions the claims you've made regarding your life based on your erratic reactions. Furthermore, an ellipsis (...) in English grammar is used to omit part of a sentence or thought. A period (.) ends a sentence that makes a statement.

      Youth, regardless of fashion or features, is beautiful! The very existence of life is beautiful, therefore, the Duchess of Cambridge, her sister or the author of this article needn't worry. That being said, like ..., I worry the media is only putting these girls on a pedistal for the sheer pleasure and profit of knocking them off. I agree with Mark on one point, though he had a heck of a time articulating it, feeding the gossip machine enables the negative backlash both by the media and others. Easier said than done as I linked here from a royality forum where I read about other peoples lives. :/

      @ Mark : you do have a problem. Because we women appear to be more interested in fashion, we are able to make the difference between a common figure dressed in a well-fitting dress and a simply good figure. Pippa catches the eye because she is well-dressed in haute couture by Sarah Burton and many women can't get this look because they can't afford it. You, man, are a bit foolish because once in bed, you risk to be deceived... As for her face, it's the same. Her fake tan is too noticeable (she looks like a carrot) and she is very wrinkled. Just compare her face to her look-alike French politician Segolene Royal. The latter is over 50 and her face looks healthier. Between the two of them, I would take the politician. Just a thought.

      If you've found my isolated posts bitchy, then perhaps it's because you're misunderstanding me.

      Imo, being confused at the fact that the male population has put someone on a pedestal without even knowing them, isn't a bitchy thing to say. When I say females are good objective judges of beauty, I was referring to when comparing with male-dominated public opinion.

      Also I HAVE said that I'm not sure what the hype is all about. I have never said she's ugly, but certainly that the frenzy is somewhat absurd. I also said that the public have no internal indications of beauty either, given that they don't know her personally, so the whole thing is ridiculous. That doesn't mean you should jump to the conclusion that I'm saying she isn't beautiful on the inside. I'm saying PEOPLE DON'T KNOW whether she is or isn't and therefore have no indication.

      I have made no personal attacks at Pippa, but I have made attacks on public opinion about her, definitely.

      If you want to be so angry and abusive towards me without reading and comprehending, then, whatever. Smh.

      There's a difference between slandering women's beauty, and saying that they're not matching the hype. If Pippa etc were beautiful people on the inside, I wouldn't be here. But that's the thing, people have put her on a pedestal without any reason whatsoever. Neither internal nor external.

I think Kate is a very beautiful woman and I understand all the hype about her. But Pippa on the other hand...I seriously just don't get it! If she looks like that at just 27, how will she look when she turns 35! Somebody get the girl some anti-aging cream! Its an emergency!

      I've looked at many photos of the girls to figure out what the hype is. Kate Middleton is a very pretty girl. She has a brilliant smile and a nice body. She has a very intelligent look about her albeit I sense some frost. lol. Pippa Middleton, ah well I do not find her attractive per se. She has balanced features. She's a 'handsome' woman. As in a pleasing 'general' appearance. Her body is also very defined (this coming from someone who likes more plump, curvy women).

      I do get a giggle at the overly exaggerating media. It's not really helping the girls b/ca it will only cause people to analyze their flaws more carefully. People will be quick to try to bring these two women down. Which is sad but when you're exposed like this you must take your vitriol...

      Some of these comments are so nasty! I think Kate is a very pretty girl, Pippa not so much. The fake tan really makes her look rough. But, she's probably a lot prettier in person, and just not that photogenic. We've all had dodgy photos at some stage.

      I like them both, they seem like they have a good sisterly bond. I think that's very cool.

      Hi thank you so much for this post, finally someone is willing to tell the truth and not let all the BS cooked up by media to force them second guess their honest feelings. i could not agree with you more, both girls are really plain (objectively speaking, 100% not a put down, HONESTLY), they are definitely NOT ugly either. in kate case, i find her quite average, but at same time, i can see why people might think she is slightly pretty. as for pippa, well, she does look a bit mannish in the photo you used, but otherwise, she is average, i guess, though one thing i am bit appalled by is how bad her skin is, i mean she only 27, but her skin is so rough and wrinkly for her age, it unbeleivable, i mean, seriouly, does this girl not use any kind of skincare, esp given the fact she definiely can definitely afford the best that the rest of us cant! anyway,like you said, i am sure those girls has a great personality that more than make up their plainess. thanks again for your HONEST post, it so refreshing, esp after all the BS i have seen in media that just about to make me puke, why can those people never be honest is anyone guess, personally i think they would actually sell more papers by being honest ( just my 2 cents worth). PS i wish someone would post something similar about gisele bundchen, i mean that girl definitely has the best body in the business, but the face, sorry, kind of mannish and horse like to me, definitely not like claudia schiffe, josie maran etc.
