November 2010 | Women's Health's Cover Girl | The dress is actually blue!
The fashionista talks about moving on from The Hills, topping the New York Times best seller list, and launching her own clothing line! Lauren Conrad has a wardrobe any girl would love to get her paws on—including, apparently, her 2-year-old Labrador retriever mix, Chloe. "She ate two of my Chanel purses and chewed the heel off a pair of boots right out of the box," says Lauren between bites of shrimp salad at a Los Angeles restaurant. Determined to salvage the pricey pieces—which she uses to dress up basics like her favorite Elizabeth and James boyfriend blazer and BDG jeans from Urban Outfitters—she enlisted a "fashion doctor" to repair the damage. Much to her relief, "he was like a magician. He brought everything back to life!"
New Books, New Looks
The former reality star is experiencing a new lease on life of her own. Since leaving The Hills in 2009, Lauren has embarked on not one but two lucrative new careers: author and clothing designer. Her first two books—installments of her L.A. Candy series, which chronicles one girl's drama-filled adventures on a glossy docu-soap (sound familiar?)—topped the New York Times best seller list. The latest, Sugar and Spice (which recently hit bookstore shelves), is expected to do the same.
