Lauren Conrad confirmed to PEOPLE that she will be designing at least one dress for
next month’s Emmy Awards, calling it a “huge compliment”. “I’m doing one. I may be doing two,” she said Saturday in Las Vegas before hosting a night at Christian Audigier The Nightclub. The designer of the Lauren Conrad Collection will be dressing the show’s “trophy girls” who bring the awards on stage for the eventual winner. Conrad elaborated, “It’s a huge compliment to be asked to do that, and it was really amazing to be taken seriously.” The invitation to design the dress is a major victory for Conrad who has been chastised by some who recently said she isn’t involved in her clothing line. “I didn’t even really respond to the rumors because they were so silly,” she said. “It was someone who knew how important the line is to me and knew that that would hurt me.” Dressed in BCBG, The Hills star also squashed rumors that she is dating My Boys actor Kyle Howard. When asked is the two were dating, she laughed, saying “No, but I do know him, yes.” — Mark Gray

i’m a 21 year old female who has never watched the hills or laguna beach. yes, i am a rarity.

i just wanted to comment that i find it alarming she has wrinkles around her eyes when she’s only a year older than me. i sincerely hope it’s just genetics, because otherwise she should learn to step out of the california sun and make sure her line includes a hat, sunglasses, and the most fashionable thing you can wear on your body- sunscreen.

(fyi- rizzy, thanks for also noticing this!)

lauren conrad, has been in fashion her whole life, though i do beleive that she is too cautious with her designs, if you want to make it big, in the creative design “high fashion world your clothes can bot just consist of simple jersey dresses. i do believe lauren has talent, but i do not know if she is creative or ambitious enough to surpass the big names in the fashion industry.

Blech. She needs to learn how to speak before she “designs” anything else. Anyone who clearly can’t articulate ANYTHING let alone describe her own creations needs to stay behind the curtain. Pointing at her dress as it went down the runway she says “uhh…here it is, uhh”. Brain surgeon! Go away.

I’ve always been a fan of Laguna and the Hills though the show is probably completely fake you can’t deny that it is entertaining. I’m excited to see what she comes up with.
