Steal Her Look: Lauren Conrad’s “Girl Next Door” Cover Look

Posted 2 years ago by

If I could raid any celebrity closet, it would have to be Lauren Conrad’s (Kourtney Kardashian is a close second). I wouldn’t mind raiding her makeup stash either! Her hair, makeup and outfits are always perfect at every red carpet event.

Are there any fashion moments you regret?

“I try to never look back at how I dressed in the first few seasons of Laguna Beach because it was pretty bad … head-to-toe bad. This past summer, MTV replayed every episode and I would always see it and be like, Ahh, noo! I wore these capri denim pants a lot and they were so bad.”

What did you want to be when you grew up?

“A friend from high school recently reminded me my goal was to own a bridal boutique! I’d love to design bridal dresses.”

How did being a former reality TV star affect your reputation in the fashion industry?

“The TV show did not help my reputation very much. It was difficult to be taken seriously. But I think the fact that I went to school to study fashion and worked in the industry helped me. I think it’s a good thing to feel like you have to prove something, because you’re always going to have to work a little bit harder.”

Is there a piece of style or beauty advice that you think sort of changed your life?

“I can’t remember who told me this, but it was ‘Get your clothes tailored.’ Like most people, I used to wear clothing off the rack. But having them fitted to me makes a really big difference, especially with pieces like a cocktail dress. Little nips and tucks can take 10 pounds off you.”

How do you learn not to care what people say about you?

“At the end of the day it’s going to hurt your feelings if someone says something mean about you, but I’ve learned to take a step back and ask myself if it’s really going to affect me, if this person who I’m never going to know or meet doesn’t like me—and it doesn’t.”

What is something we don’t know about you? “I wasn’t allowed to watch MTV until I was 16 and I got cast [on Laguna Beach] when I was 17. I thought it was funny. I was like, I was just allowed to watch this not that long ago!”

Do you want kids, and if so, when?

“I want kids, but not in the immediate future. All of my friends in their early 30s who just started having kids say, ‘Give it a few years.’ ”

Do you ever think of writing a dating advice book after having your private life filmed?

“The first book I pitched to HarperCollins was a dating book and they did not want it, but I would love to write one.”

What was the last movie that made you cry? 

“This is really cheesy, but it was the Katy Perry movie. I saw it on a plane and started tearing up. The movie touched on her divorce and how she had to go up on stage every night. She’s crying as she goes up, and once the lights go on, she just smiles and pulls it off, and you’re like, wow!”

Did you love her three looks just as much as we did?

Here’s how to get them for less!

If you love all these looks but are afraid of the commitment and possible damage, then chalking is for you!

Chalking is a technique that can give you this unique hair without bleaching. Best of all…it works on dark hair too! It’s something fun you can do when you’re in the mood for a temporary change that can make a big impact.

What You’ll Need

  • Soft Pastel Chalk (no oil)
  • Water Filled Spray Bottle
  • Gloves
  • Blow Dryer
  • Flat Iron
  • An old t-shirt you don’t mind ruining.

1. Take a 1-inch strand of hair and wet it with a spray bottle (skip this step if you have blonde hair)

2. Apply gloves and take a pastel of your choice. Rub it on your hair strand until it’s at your desired vibrancy.

3. Blow dry the hair strand until completly dry.

4. Go over the strand with your flat iron. This will help set it in. Make sure it’s on its lowest setting.

5. Brush and style as usual!

This will wash out during your next shampoo, so do as many strands as you’d like!

*Warning* It might stay in your hair for a few shampoos if you have natural blonde hair.
