Lauren Conrad may be best known as the star of MTV’s hits “Laguna Beach” and “The Hills,” but she’s also an accomplished designer and a New York Times best-selling author.

In 2009, she launched LC Lauren Conrad exclusively at Kohl’s. Her collection includes apparel, shoes, jewelry, accessories and bedding. Following this successful endeavor, she launched Paper Crown in 2011: A specialty line tailored for the contemporary market that features a romantic take on classic style. And in 2012, Lauren partnered with BlueAvocado to launch XO(eco), an eco-friendly line of cosmetic and travel accessories.

Lauren became a New York Times best-selling author when she signed multiple book deals with Harper Collins. Her first three-book series for young adults, “LA Candy,” spurred a spin-off trilogy called “The Fame Game.” In addition to novels, she’s written two personal fashion and beauty books, “Lauren Conrad Style” and “Lauren Conrad Beauty.”

Lauren has been seen in numerous publications and has graced the covers of Cosmopolitan, Glamour, Allure, Redbook, Shape, Rolling Stone, ELLE, Lucky, Marie Claire and Seventeen, along with a few others. She also shares fashion and beauty advice on her website,
