Pippa Middleton Book Launch Dress Is A Misguided Attempt To Channel Kate Middleton (PHOTOS)

The duchess' little sister has some 'splaining to do.

Pippa Middleton's style runs the gamut from colored faux-fur jackets to wedge sneakers to awkwardly high-waisted skirts -- we never know what we're going to get when the duchess' little sis steps out. So when we saw what Pips pulled out of the mixed bag that is her closet today, we were quick to react.

To promote her new book "Celebrate: A Year of Festivities for Family and Friends" in Amsterdam, the 29-year-old opted for a Beulah London electric purple peplumed sheath, matching suede pumps and nude tights. Our verdict? This looks like Pippa's misguided attempt to channel her sister Kate. Or a bridesmaid's dress gone wrong. Your choice.

If the new author was trying to prove that she was worth the $600,000 advance her publisher gave her to write the book, this outfit was definitely not the way to restore confidence (the fact that the book's already hit the bargain bins isn't helping her case either though). We can see why the Brit would attempt a more streamlined, classic silhouette, but why choose such a jarring color in satin? The flimsy fabric even shows the outlines of her lace demi bra. Oy.

Pippa's already had to defend the contents of "Celebrate," so now perhaps it's time for her to explain the dress she's wearing to promote it? And she did so well the last time around...

Check out Pippa Middleton's look to promote her book in Holland today and tell us what you think.
