Designer Style

We all remember this name and face, right? Lauren Conrad grew up before our eyes as star of MTV’s Laguna Beach and The Hills. From her love triangle with the Kristin and “Ste-phen!” (we can just hear Kristin saying it now) to her days at Teen Vogue, L.C. has gone on to do many more notable endeavors beyond the small screen. The Hills was just a sneak peek at Conrad’s prolific design career to come. Two years after launching The Lauren Conrad Collection in 2007, she debuted her second line, LC Lauren Conrad – a diffusion collection exclusively for Kohl’s. Her latest design project, Paper Crown is a perfect translation of Conrad’s signature style into a specialty line of vintage and lingerie-inspired pieces. Although she’s a self-declared "non-romantic," the super feminine collection definitely reeks of romance and ethereal goodness - a thread that continues throughout her personal space. And L.C. has a few other reputable things on her resume aside from designing. Her first novel, “L.A. Candy” debuted at #1 on The New York Times Best Sellers List, as did her second scribe, “Sweet Little Lies.” Since then she’s penned the book, “Sugar and Spice” and “Lauren Conrad Style,” and has two other books in the works. All in a day’s work. It’s clear that the TV star-turned-designer-turned best selling author has an amazing sense of entrepreneurial skills, which we truly admire. We’ve been big fans of L.C. since the days of MTV's The After Show, co-hosted by our boy, Dan Levy. But the fandemonium goes both ways here; Conrad was known for rocking our very own Erin Kleinberg's namesake clothing line since the brand's beginning. So we weren’t surprised when we got a taste of the rest of her Chanel-filled closet. Conrad's a true Cali girl at heart – whimsical maxi dresses, crochet crop tops and blush-coloured pieces… Sounds like a hazy daydream, no?

That said, let us whisk you away into Lauren's gorgeous closet…
