She's had a taste of Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld's acid tongue after he claimed she should only 'show her back' because he wasn't a fan of her face, but now Pippa Middleton has received praise from Kate Spade.
The fashion designer is known for her New York vibrant, quirky aesthetics as well as abstract prints which have been hot all year round, and now Ms Spade has praised the edgier Middleton that is Pippa.
The youngest Middleton sibling loves the designer and is snapped almost every week donning one of Kate's latest New York creations such as the oversized sunnies, colour pop jeans and block cardigans from the SS12 collection, as well as a stunning peplum blouse.
Pippa has also carried the brand's Delevan Terrace wicker bag repeatedly over the summer, making it one of her most worn designer handbags.
And it appears that the love is mutual as the US label are complimenting Pippa right back, claiming that they admire her "feminine yet modern sense of style", reports Grazia Daily.

"She always looks effortlessly put together and Pippa isn’t afraid to wear colour – which is one of our favourite things here at Kate Spade New York,'' they added.
And on taking a leaf out of Kate Middleton's book by recycling her favourite items, Kate Spade New York reckon that should not be frowned upon.
They said: "We think it’s fantastic how Pippa repeats her outfits and accessories, it sets a great example that fashion doesn’t have to be thrown out after one wear."
We can't wait to see what Pippa pulls out from their Autumn/Winter 2012 collection which will soon hit stores!
