I’m really excited to debut a new feature today called Style Stealer (Plus!). As much as I love putting together affordable versions of celeb outfits in our regular Style Stealer posts, I don’t like limiting these fabulous fashions to sizes 0-12, so I decided to start a weekly plus-size version. We’re kicking things off with Lauren Conrad’s foxy leather pants and breezy blouse, but if you come across a celeb look you’d like to recreate in your size, shoot me an email at email@example.com and I’ll see what I can do! After the jump, check out all the components of Lauren’s outfit–all in plus sizes, all for $50 or less… Keep reading »
Remember Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, the hydra-headed beast that terrorized Lauren Conrad, Brody Jenner and America during the mid-oughts via their appearances on “The Hills” and “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here”? Well, guess what? Despite going broke after spending all their money on crystals, plastic surgery and pre-Mayan Apocalypse tomfoolery (really), these two jackals are back. With guns. The now-bankrupt pair say that they keep guns in their California home in order to protect themselves from crazy fans that may break in. Which, HAHA, Speidi fans. The pair were recently featured in a UK documentary, appropriately titled “Speidi: Scandal, Secrets And Surgery,” where they bragged about their well-stocked gun room.
“I didn’t feel safe especially with crazed fans and stalkers out there but if somebody broke into our home, this is the only thing that could actually save my life,” said Heidi, while Spencer boasted that though England was an “amazing country,” his gun arsenal was proof of “the amazing laws in America.”
The pair are set to appear on a second season of the UK’s “I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here,” because the British have apparently not reached their Speidi quota. Okay, what’s going on over in England? [Daily Mail UK]
Looking flawless is par for the course for Lauren Conrad. It’s rare to see LC out and about with anything less than perfect hair, makeup, clothes, and accessories, and this beautiful beige-y ensemble she wore to the Jenny Packham runway show was no exception.

Done well, leather shorts can hit the perfect balance of classy and edgy–hell, if they’re the right size and cut, they can even be flattering (yes, really!). That being said, it’s also really easy to get them wrong–too short, too tight, or too baggy, and the results can be disastrous. We found 10 celebs braving the leather shorts trend in 10 very different ways. Click through to check ‘em out!
I can’t quite tell you why, but I was pretty darn addicted to MTV’s “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” and, to a lesser degree, “The City.” Nothing ever actually happened on these shows and the conversations and “characters” were basically the opposite of fascinating, but maybe it was their incredible blandness that made it hard to turn away. I think I am going overboard trying to justify this particular habit — I just like TV that temporarily lobotomizes me. Artist Karin Bubas is probably on my wavelength, because she’s created these portraits of “The Hills” stars at their most, um, poignant. I kind of dig the soft focus glow of them — they remind me of the ’80s Sweet Valley High book covers. I’m not saying I’m planning on buying one, but if someone gave me the drawing of Lauren with the single mascara-tainted tear stain on her cheek, I would make a space on my wall for it.

Earlier this week, Lauren Conrad arrived at a book signing — for her fourth novel, The Fame Game (the first book in a new trilogy) – with a decidedly noticeable new ‘do. Her hair was pulled back in a lady-like high ponytail … the ends of which were dyed a florescent hot pink. Conrad has dip-dyed her hair before, but this is her brightest go at it yet and I love it! I’ve been thinking of doing something similar, maybe even just for a couple weeks before my next big hair cut. Winona has pink streaks in her blonde hair, while our girl Kate Torgovnick has been rocking a single blue streak for years — and both look fab. What do you think of the look? [TooFab]
Wait, before you answer, let’s look at more examples of this punky trend in action. I was sort of surprised to discover just how many celeb ladies had either dip-dyed their hair or added colorful streaks to their locks — and I’m not just talking about the Nicki Minaj’s of the world. Click on to see what I mean and then tell me whether this is a look you’d try!
We never pegged Lauren Conrad as a side-boob exhibitionist, but here she is posing topless on the May 2012 cover of Glamour for the “Swimsuit Issue.” Wait, the swimsuit issue? Fifty percent of her swimsuit is missing! Gah, no one will be complaining . [Us Weekly]
Lauren Conrad wears many hats, a few of which I’d prefer she take off. (As a writer, it chaps my hide that she gets a serial book deal.) But one area I think Lauren excels in, besides masterfully wearing braids, is fashion design. I’ve liked a lot of the thing she’s done for her low-priced line for Kohl’s, but it’s her mid-priced line Paper Crown that really makes my closet ache. She just unveiled Paper Crown’s Holiday Collection and I’m totally into the crushed neutral velvet, floral prints, and champagne-colored frocks. Click through to see the full collection, in store
Lauren Conrad is nothing if not loyal to her fans and followers. And so when readers of her beauty site, The Beauty Department voted that she dip-dye her hair a light peachy color, Conrad acquiesced. The result? Peachy keen. What do you think? [Love. Might need to do this. -- Editor] [The Beauty Department]
Let us take a moment to review the trajectory of Lauren Conrad‘s career. She went from teen reality star, to fashion designer, to novelist. LC has multiple clothing lines, endorsement deals, a beauty website, a fashion book, a regular writing gig, and a series of novels. Seriously, does this girl sleep? Based on the aforementioned list, you’d think she would be too busy to do anything else, like, say, baking. Wrong! In her spare time she loves to whip up cupcakes, cookies, and cakes—so much so that she is planning to open up a fancy bakery in Hollywood. Keep reading »
