In other royal style news, Pippa Middleton’s red linen shift by Hobbs sold out within hours of her appearance at Wimbledon, according to Marie Claire. The Middleton ladies are starting to give Oprah a run for her money in marketing power – selling out nearly every dress they’ve been photographed in as of late. Kate’s Wimbledon frock, designed by Alice Temperley, likewise sold out, reports

The sisters’ flawless choices must be a hard to follow, but it looks like Princess Beatrice may be keeping better pace. The Daily Mail reports the 22-year-old has hired stylist Charlie Anderson -- who works with Emma Watson, Katie Holmes and Anne Hathaway to name a few. Anderson is believed to be the mastermind of the nude Elie Saab gown Beatrice wore to the White Tie and Tiara Ball hosted by Sir Elton John. The dress was positively received, a step in the right direction from the onslaught of negativity following her hat choice in April.
