Pippa’s Got A Great Butt, But Can We Stop Obsessing Over It?

Ever since Pippa Middleton stepped out of the motorcoach at sister Kate Middleton‘s royal wedding, she has risen to international fame without people really even knowing much about her as a person. Not many people have even heard her speak or be interviewed. Regardless, what has her fans hooked is not so much her personality, but her body; she’s even been dubbed “her royal hotness.”

Her slender, toned figure and stunning, natural beauty has created a frenzy among women who don’t just admire her, but now want to look like her—and specifically her booty. Some have even referred to it as “rear of the year.” In a recent interview with Fox News, plastic surgeon Dr. Constantino Mendieta said he now gets more requests for her derriere than J-Lo‘s or Kim Kardashian‘s :

The latest craze here in the U.S. and all over the world is to get the ‘Pippa Butt Lift.’ Ever since the royal wedding, Pippa Middleton has become the new queen of the booty. She opens the doors to those who did not know you could have a small, shapely and perky backside without the large size. Patients want to be more proportionate [with] buttocks that look natural and sexy and go with the rest of their body.

Yes, she has a great butt, but so what? Are we so unhappy with our own bodies that we long for someone else’s—and are willing to go under the knife for it?

Seems so. Did you know that a simple Google search for “Pippa’s butt” yields 64,700 results? Not only is her behind garnering so much attention, turns out, her nose and cheeks are too. Plastic surgeons are now hearing women say they want their faces to look like this royal sister’s. Oy vey.

I know it’s idealistic, but can’t we all just quit obsessing over someone else’s body—and our own, for that matter? Are some women really that unhappy or insecure that they are willing to have their bodies cut and mutilated just to try to look like someone else–who they will never look like anyway?

Yes, Pippa is cute and healthy-looking, and no one’s going to deny she has a great body. And we’re also big fans of her lesser-known athleticism and charity work. But, let’s be real. She’s pretty much a regular person with a pretty good pilates instructor. As a matter of fact, before the royal wedding, most people didn’t even know she existed. So let’s stop staring at her butt. Besides, who knows, it might not be real anyway. She wouldn’t be the first to slip on some padded panties.
