Lauren Conrad has announced that she’s starting a new clothing line with her best friends. Just to recap: Conrad has already dabbled in the fashion business when she created a line of jersey dresses a few years ago (that tanked) and, more recently, when she teamed up with Kohl’s to do a gently priced daywear collection. (It was cute … but wasn’t a runaway success.) “The Hills” star tells People, “This will be more specialty basics, more of a boutique line. It will be at a higher price point. It will be very different.” So what are “specialty basics”? Sounds kind of like high-priced jersey dresses to us, which we’ve already seen from L.C. And who are the “best friends”? Lo would be awfully dissed if she heard that and it turns out she’s not a part of the project.

Lauren Conrad rocks a decidedly casual look for shopping at upscale designer store Herve Leger. I think those are the same glasses I have! [Los Angeles, 7/27/10] Keep reading »
We thought it was kind of funny when Spencer Pratt showed up to the after-party to celebrate the final episode of “The Hills” dressed as an old homeless man to protest the fact that he wasn’t on the guest list. “My high is how much people hate me,” he said. He also elaborated that he was dressed as a crazy old man because “when your life is edited into one-minute segments, that’s what you look like in the end.”
But there were several people who were not amused—the cast of the show, who witnessed his increasingly erratic behavior first hand. “He was not even allowed at the curb. The talent are really physically afraid of him,” a source said. “Lauren Conrad had a Taser in her bag.” Lauren’s publicist won’t say whether this is true or not, but I would like to think it is. How surreal would it have been if Lauren tased Spencer in the parking lot? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
Admittedly, “The Hills” hasn’t been the same since Lauren Conrad left, but die-hard fans are going to have to find a new way to fulfill their need for fake drama and blank stares now that the show is finally coming to an end. For those who just can’t live without Kristin, Lo, Stephanie, and Audrina in their lives, Converse is here to help. The shoe brand decorated a pair of their sneaks with snaps of the stars, so now you can walk around and show off your love for the girls, while undoubtedly enduring a few judging looks from passersbys. If that doesn’t satiate your “Hills” love, don’t get too depressed just yet. There are rumors that Stephanie Pratt is thinking of moving to New York to join the cast of “The City” — which hasn’t been canceled? — in order to keep up with her reality show career and continue with her crocodile tear action. Watch out, Manhattan. [Crushable] Keep reading »

Oh, look, Laura Bush in her memoir Spoken From The Heart and Lauren Conrad in her style manual Style have the same blind book designer doing their cover art.
Scary! Tell us, who wore the “crazy eyes” look better, Laura or L.C.? Keep reading »
While some writers struggle for years to publish just one book, Lauren Conrad’s already proudly penned not one, not two, but four. The first three, titled L.A Candy, Sweet Little Lies, and Sugar and Spice are a thinly veiled novels about her life in L.A., but the fourth focuses on what Lauren seems to know best: fashion. Aptly named Lauren Conrad Style, the book plans to divulge tips on how to dress just like LC, including tips like getting clothes tailored to fit your body. While you wait for her scintillating advice, here’s a first look at the cover of her latest creation, which you’ll find on shelves come October. While it’s sparse, with a simple white background, her deep gaze looks intense. For a book that’s all about fashion, there’s almost none on the actual cover, except for an elegant bun and Lauren’s cat-eye makeup. [Amazon via FabSugar] Keep reading »
Just as Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross, and Felicity Huffman issued a joint statement saying that “Desperate Housewives” producer Marc Cherry had never been anything but professional to them and has only fostered a positive working environment, the cast of “The Hills” has found themselves in a similar situation. On Tuesday, Life & Style reported that Heidi Montag was planning to sue the creator of “The Hills,” Adam DiVello, over an incident that took place at a photo shoot last month. A source told the magazine, “Adam came up to her from behind and grabbed her with one hand on her stomach and one hand directly on her butt cheek. Heidi had six bodyguards with her. They took his hand off her and moved him away from the situation. …Heidi started bringing security to the set because she felt Adam was getting a little creepy. He was very touchy-feely and she insisted he wouldn’t stop asking her to strip down to a bikini for scenes. Adam wasn’t on set much for six seasons until Heidi got her new boobs. And now he shows up everywhere.”
MTV says they have conducted an investigation over the incident and that “the allegations made against Adam DiVello are completely false and without merit.” Keep reading »
Lauren Conrad showed up to a book signing for her second novel, Sweet Little Lies, wearing a pair of dressy shorts. Lauren’s totally on-trend according to what has been going down the runways of designers like Phillip Lim, and nicer-looking shorts are even in Alexa Chung’s line for Madewell, coming out this fall. But not everyone can agree on whether shorts can be dressed up enough to put them on par with, say, a skirt. Keep reading »
This week I went to a Mark makeup event in Soho and saw two important things (among others): this new PSA on preventing violence against women and Mark’s spokesperson, Lauren Conrad, in the flesh. (Regarding the latter, she is one of those celebs who’s even cuter in real life!) The presentation also introduced a new m.powerment by Mark launch, a pretty Have A Heart bracelet — available here for $12. One-hundred percent of the net proceeds are funneled into their fund to help spread awareness and eradicate dating abuse and partner violence. So check it out. [Meet Mark] Keep reading »
