Lauren Conrad Readies for Her Runway Debut

As if having your first runway show at Los Angeles Fashion Week wasn’t enough, Lauren Conrad is still having to deal with rumors of Heidi Montag‘s competing clothing line. But Heidi’s “affordable fashion” isn’t on Lauren’s radar anyway — the designer not only admits to USA Today her love of Moschino and Marc Jacobs, but her case of nerves about her debut runway collection. “I’m really nervous. It’s one thing to have your designs displayed in stores. To have them walk down the runway is a really big deal,” Lauren says of her eponymous collection. The Hills star admits that without fame she wouldn’t have come so far so fast. But as much as Lauren loves her designer shoes, don’t expect her to be designing them anytime soon. “I don’t know if I would do shoes. I like buying them, but that’s not something I’d be good at designing. I’m gonna stick to buying shoes.” Check out Lauren’s existing line by clicking here, and come back on Wednesday for all the details on her fashion show.

she should also stick to buying clothes, not “designing” them.

never watched the show, so is she a celeb by default,like paris?

I would be nervous too if my collection looked like something that is sold at Old Navy or the Gap for 1/10 of the price. Thank goodness she is “famous” for her reality show, without it nobody would pay attention to her clothes!

I’m sorry I am not saying this to attack or rag on someone who is a big deal right now but, I just really don’t like her clothes and almost always don’t like what she’s wearing. This is my opinion and we are all entitled to one. Something about her always looks so unkept and her clothes look droopy and sloppy. I wish she would dress a little more elegantly. She could really take notes from Whitney who is often so well pulled together and women like Catherine Zeta Jones, Halle Berry and Nicole Kidman their style is alwyas elegant, flawless, figure flattering and chic. They may be older but, they are the best examples I can think of, in my life I know a few young women Lauren’s age who dress in a beautiful elegant manner, so age is no excuse especially for a fashion designer. I also feel she needs to take better care of herself; skin and hair wise and wear more high class makeup. She almost has a bit of a Britney thing going here. I mean look at the above picture how is that an appropraite way to dress and be groomed. That’s how a girl looks just coming off the beach; like she just threw on a sundress and has messy beach hair that she put up in a princess ponytail. I just don’t think she carries or herself, dresses or looks the part of an up and coming designer. She needs a makeover STAT.

Dont get me wrong, I really like LC BUT why would I spend that kinda money on her line when I can get cuter or perhaps the same kinda tops, skirts, dresses some place else?

Ive seen pieces from her line and I am not impressed.

I really want to wish “LC” all the best. The girl has style and class and knows fashion which is important and a major part of launching your own clothing line. I’ve watched her since Laguna Beach and can’t wait for the premier of the The Hills on the 24th. Hopefully I can afford something from her if not I wish her the best.

As for Heidi goes, those two girls are TWO different people. At this point Heidi’s personal life shouldn’t have anything to do with her wanting to do her own thing in the business world BUT when you see someone treat a friend like crap and tries to justify it and so forth, that not only makes the person looks bad but anything and everything having to do with that person is just not appealing any longer. I wish her well as well but remember you action speaks very loud especially if you are on television.

Go Lauren. You are awesome. Don’t worry about Heidi, her clothes will probably fail like her singing career. Can’t wait to watch The Hills in a couple of weeks.


i cannot wait to see the new the hills this month…

good job Lauren and good luck! at least somebody is doing something great compare to the other celebrities, that all they do is use drugs, party like crazy, get drunk and then get arrested for DUI.
