LONDON, Feb. 26 (UPI) -- Pippa Middleton
became a household name in Britain when her sister got engaged to Prince William
, but her notoriety went through the roof when her backside-skimming bridesmaid dress became a royal-wedding talking point.
Speaking Tuesday at a London event, Middleton was frank about the Alexander McQueen dress that nearly upstaged her sister's wedding gown.
"As I have found out, recognition has its upside, its downside and -- you may say -- its backside," the 30-year-old told attendees of the Women in Advertising and Communications Dinner.
Middleton said she was "glad it fitted." But admitted that "in retrospect it fitted a little too well."
