(Newser) – Forget Kim Kardashian's butt: This year, it's all about Pippa Middleton's rear. "The latest craze here in the US and all over the world is to get the Pippa Butt Lift," a Miami plastic surgeon tells the Telegraph, declaring Pippa the "new queen of booty." The craze started, of course, after the royal wedding when Pippa's butt gained its own following. The surgeon explains that while the derrieres of Kardashian and others like Jennifer Lopez have also become famous, they are "a bit too big" for many women. Pippa's behind, on the other hand, is just right.

But that perfect butt may not even be real: Jezebel notes that the recent TLC special Crazy for Pippa included experts hypothesizing that her bottom is normally much more flat, and was padded for the wedding. Not that that will stop those seeking plastic surgery: Turns out Pippa's nose is also quite popular, and then there are those who just want the whole "Pippa Body," says a Beverly Hills surgeon.
