With an already successful casual clothing line of flirty dresses, soft camis and playful skirts, Lauren Conrad is getting ready enter the world of eveningwear. The Hills resident designer is set to create a one of a kind red carpet gown for the 60th Primetime Emmy Awards trophy girls, marking it the first time in Emmy history that a celebrity designer was asked to create a gown for the women who will hand out the Emmy statuettes. “I am so excited that the Academy has asked me to design a dress for this year’s Emmy Awards,” says Lauren. “I will be doing a red carpet look that still reflects the simple classic design of the Lauren Conrad Collection but with a black tie twist.” The Emmy dress is being made especially for the awards and, sadly for the rest of us, will not be part of her Lauren Conrad Collection. Tell us: Are you excited to see Lauren’s design? Do you think she is a good choice for this role?

Im excited to see what she makes, her dresses are so simple almost dull and boring so it will be interesting to see if she can come up with something exciting!

Everyone needs to realize that Lauren’s goal (before she became a celebrity) was to be a fashion designer. She went to school for fashion and works in the fashion industry. Just because she also happens to be a celebrity, that doesn’t define her as just celebrity. The only reason she is a celebrity is because a camera follows her life. She is not an actress or musician, she is simply a fashion designer who’s life is on tv.

What a big slap in the face to REAL DESIGNERS. What a disappointment. .. .

I think we should all see what she comes up with before we can judge. So, let’s hope for the best because she seems like a sweet girl.
