Pippa Middleton looked stunning as she attended the ParaSnowBall on Thursday night. The 32-year-old looked effortlessly glamourous at the Winter Wonderland-themed event which aimed to raise funds for disabled skiers.

Pippa was the belle of the ball at Fulham's The Hurlingham Club in a floor-length grey gown with an embellished Peter Pan collar and pleated skirt. The columnist kept her long brunette tresses sleek and tucked behind her ears, and completed the look with a silver watch and earrings while carrying a small black leather clutch bag.

The Duchess of Cambridge's sister looked happy and relaxed at the event, posing for a picture with the Chief Executive of Disability SnowSport UK, Fiona Young and chatting to coach Mike Dixon, and Crystal Ski Holidays representatives Tamsin Todd and Mathew Prior before speaking on stage.

With tickets costing £185, the cause was clearly close to the avid-skier's heart. As a huge fan of the sport, Pippa recently completed the world's longest downhill ski race in Switzerland, placing 67th out of 105 competitors.

The spokesperson of the event told People: "[Pippa] did really good! For her it was a really positive result and she was really, really happy to finish the race."

"She was a little bit nervous at the start because it was the first time she has done a race like this. It's one of the hardest races you can do in the alpine sport, almost 15km downhill and a little bit uphill too, it’s not easy!".

Pippa took to the stage to support the cause

Pippa talked exclusively to HELLO! about how she prepared for gruelling races, giving an insight into her healthy diet. She said: "I try to eat wholegrain, energy-fuelled carbohydrates and three meals a day. I also increase my portion sizes based on my training level, with lots of brown rice, lentils, quinoa and sweet potato, and for breakfast, porridge and rye toast.

"I don't get fussy, though, because I enjoy food too much. But a week or so before an event I'm quite conscious of eating really nutritious foods to store energy and I cut out alcohol, refined sugar and processed foods.".
