Pippa and the (toy) pistol incident

First it was Pippa Middleton's buns, but now it's a gun that's got the eyes of the world trained on the sister of Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge. Pippa was photographed in Paris on Sunday in a car with three male friends, the driver brandishing what appeared to be a semiautomatic pistol at a photographer. But by midweek, one of the passengers had apologized and said the gun was but a toy. Scott Heppell / Associated Press
