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 find it amusing that Lex thinks L.C. is not smart at all. Maybe he needs to start using his spell check!

Ugh, will Lauren, Heidi, Audrina, Whitney, Brooke Hogan, and all the other brats who are only famous for being on reality tv that sucks, please get out of the limelight and let some actual TALENT be recognized? Thank you, and have a nice day. :)

I think Lauren Conrad is a beautiful girl, but her clothing, although somewhat classy, seems mediocre. They aren’t “special” or “unique”. I’ve seen similar designs priod to Lauren’s clothing debut and I was unimpressed. I feel as though she had no personal touches in her designs and they are very pricey for something that is very similar to Target clothing or Forever 21. I didn’t think Lauren brought the creativity needed for clothes to sell well. People, especially myself, look for clothing that is different and unique, and although I admire her for attempting, I just see the same “look” in each of her pieces. But, that is also just my opinion.
