Lauren Conrad was the lead character on both Laguna Beach (which is where we fell in love with her, despite her need to wear so many headbands) and The Hills, which followed her life after high school while trying to make it in the fashion industry.
Today, it is safe to say that Lauren (or LC, as we'll forever call her) has made it, but not just as a fashion designer, although she has two clothing lines to her name: LC Lauren Conrad available at Kohl’s and Paper Crown. She has also become one of Hollywood;s leading lifestyle gurus and basically the modern-day Martha Stewart. Yes, we said it, and we're not taking it back.
In addition to designing new collections every season, Lauren runs her website, LaurenConrad.com, which is a lifestyle hub that centers on style, or "primp," dining, decorating, crafts, and more. We are big fans of the "decorate" section, which has all of Lauren's party tips and tricks, plus her epic Halloween costume how-to guide every year.
When she's not crafting herself, Lauren travels all over the world in order to find unique home items to sell for The Little Market, which is a company she cofounded to bring beautiful products that are handmade by female artisans around the world to the masses. The Little Market is a nonprofit and charitable organization that focuses on mostly decor items (think candles, wood serving utensils, and blankets) and is an online fair-trade shop you're going to love — unless you already shop there, in which case you definitely love it.
PS: Lauren pretty much designed and planned every part of her wedding back in 2014, so yes, she is the lifestyle guru to watch!
