Since her first appearance on MTV’s Laguna Beach, Lauren Conrad has been in the public eye. Her subsequent spinoff, The Hills, which followed her life as an intern for Teen Vogue, provided a platform that propelled this once mundane, bleach-blonde reality show star into a full-fledged fashionista.
The perfect embodiment of LA style, Lauren’s look is as relaxed as it is chic. She knows how to work the latest trends while always keeping her look fresh and flirty, playing with different colors and shapes to best accentuate her body. Whether it’s cinching her waist with a fun colored belt, or donning mini dresses and shorts to show off her killer legs, Conrad knows how to play up her best features. Her flattering and extremely wearable ensembles are relatively easy to mimic, making her the perfect inspiration for those of us trying to step up our style game on a budget!
This feminine and flattering style inspired her first fashion line that launched at Mercedes-Benz LA Fashion Week back in 2008, The Lauren Conrad Collection. The following year, she released her LC Lauren Conrad line for Kohl’s, and has also published three novels since, the first being a New York Times bestseller. Additionally, she wrote Lauren Conrad Style, a fashion and style guide with insight into her experiences in the fashion industry.
This reality star-turned-entrepreneur is more than deserving of the Style Icon title. Her impeccable taste and success in the fashion industry make Lauren Conrad one television personality worth watching!
