pippa middleton and boyfriend nico jackson at the sugarplum ball in london mayfair

Pippa stole the show in a daring see-through gown alongside boyfriend Nico Jackson


Pippa Middleton was a royal red carpet style siren last night when she accompanied boyfriend Nico Jackson to the Sugarplum Ball wearing one helluva sexy sheer gown.

The 30-year-old sister of the Duchess of Cambridge braved the crisp winter weather and donned a black floor-length dress for the exclusive London Mayfair event. But it wasn't the intricate embroidery or fine boning detail that caught our eye - it was that barely there mesh skirt that just about covered her modesty that really got tongues wagging.

Putting Pippa and her widely-celebrated bod firmly back on the fashion map, the royal beauty let her eye-catching gown do the talking. Shedding her sequin cropped jacket later in the evening to reveal her frock in its full glory, Kate's sister also kept her hair and make-up simple with a classic updo, a slick of eyeliner and a rosy blush.

Stockbroker boyfriend Nico Jackson also dressed up for the occasion, sporting a velvet tuxedo jacket and bowtie for the glamorous 'do.

The pair were rumoured to have got engaged over summer, but with Pippa's ring finger noticably lacking any sign of an engagement rock, we're holding off from buying our wedding hats just yet.
