Not quite the bubbly Pippa the world is familiar with.
On Friday, Pippa Middleton came out of hiding in central London. Wearing a trendy color-block blouse, leggings, heels and sunglasses, Duchess Kate‘s 28-year-old sister wasn’t in the mood to smile as she headed into the Rosano Ferreti Hair Spa.
It’s the first pic of the socialite, entrepreneur and world-famous royal bridesmaid since she was photographed in Paris last Saturday; Middleton seemed to be laughing as she sat in the front seat of an Audi convertible alongside the driver, who pointed what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol at a lurking photographer.
The photos (as seen in the new Us Weekly) sparked controversy, and even potential fines and jail time for Middleton and her three pals, when they emerged earlier this week.
Middleton had been in hiding, reportedly at the Middleton family home in the English countryside, since the incident.
While she never addressed the scandal, one of her friends in the car, Viscount Arthur de Soultrait, released a statement to Us Wednesday.
