I hate to admit it, but I’ve been slightly obsessed with watching The Hills on MTV for the past few seasons. Part of it is that there’s something about watching meaningless juvenile drama unfold that I find absolutely enjoyable and necessary.
But the other part is I that I love seeing the great outfits the girls wear, and I look forward to getting glimpses of the fashion industry through Lauren Conrad’s (LC) internship at Teen Vogue and her pursuit of becoming a designer.
Launching her first line last year, and being invited to showcase at LA Fashion Week for the first time this year, LC is finding some early success in her fashion career already. Her Spring 08 line is being sold online and in select boutiques around the country. Featuring breezy and draped jersey frocks in mainly solids that look simple, clean and very easy to wear from day to night, her aesthetic is definitely fits that of SoCal fashion.
Being that her repertoire isn’t overly complex or interesting thus far, I wonder how much of her success isn’t simply attributed to her huge following of teeny boppers who love her show and to her close relationships with young Hollywood.
Regardless, I’m definitely curious to see what her collection for Fashion Week will look like… hopefully she proves that she’s got true talent to back up the hype (unlike her once BFF Heidi Montag and her lackluster music career).
