Laguna Beach and The Hills alumna Lauren Conrad graces the cover of Lucky magazine's March issue—on newsstands today, January 29th. Inside, she dishes on her relationship, working as a designer, and dishes out fashion and beauty advice. Check out some of our favorite bits from her interview, right here.
On her boyfriend, William Tell: "He studies all weekend and I've been working. I'm renovating a condo, so I've been spending my weekends shopping for home stuff at flea markets... He's a jeans a T-shirt guy, which I like. I like no-fuss style. Sometimes I'll buy him clothes and sneak them into his drawer!"
On her Laguna style: "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, Ahhh, no! I wore these capri denim pants a lot and they were so bad."
On being a designer: "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."
Her number-one piece of fashion advice: "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."
On getting her dating book turned down: "The first book I pitched to HarperCollins was a dating book and they did not want it, but I would love to write one."
The last movie that made her 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!"
A funny lesser-known fact: "I wasn't allowed to watch MTV until I was 16 and I got cast when I was 17. I thought it was funny."
