Pippa Middleton and Andre Balazs have had almost instant chemistry since the British socialite arrived in New York, leading some to question whether there might be something romantic going on between the pair.
Pippa hit Shelter Island this weekend and, since then, has spent a lot of time with Balazs, who the New York Post described as a “dashing hotelier.” Pippa and Andre Balazs were seen at his boutique hotel Sunset Beach where sources told the Post that they played ping pong and later went to dinner.
Though they were getting close during the time they spent together, not everyone thinks Pippa and Andre Balazs are a couple just yet.
“Pippa was wearing red jeans and a white top. She was dressed sexy, but not too sexy,” an onlooker told the Post, adding that, while it did not seem like Middleton and Balazs are a couple, it was “flirt central.”
“There was definitely chemistry. Andre was being very charming.”
It appeared that the 28-year-old Pippa and 55-year-old Andre Balazs wanted to go unnoticed during their dinner at Sunset Beach on September 2, Us Weekly reported. But when Pippa got up to use the ladies’ room, the rest of the restaurant buzzed with her appearance, MTV Canada host Aliya Jasmine Sovani told Us Weekly.
“She got really embarrassed when some people recognized her while she was in line,” Sovani says. “She actually turned bright red!”
But others said Pippa and Andre Balazs looked like they were just talking business at their dinner. Pippa herself is in the hospitality business, having recently published a bookCelebrate: A Year of Festivities for Families and Friends.
