Lauren Conrad — the woman behind the rose-colored lifestyle empire of the same name — reached peak Lauren Conrad at the launch of her latest book, "Celebrate," a party-planning guide that will soon find a home on many a lucite coffee table, next to a vase of peonies and a glowing Diptyque candle. For the occasion, Conrad and the party's attendees hit up the Kohl's Showroom in New York City on Wednesday to drink thematic cocktails and pose with balloons. In all, she gave the people what they wanted: a safe place for partygoers to churn out some truly prolific Instagram #content.
Before I go on, I feel obligated to tell you that William Tell — Conrad's husband who used to be a broody guitarist in the pop punk band Something Corporate, but is now a lawyer — was also there, in a slim-cut button-up and skinny jeans. Aw!
Conrad was the perfect hostess, wearing a powder pink tank dress, presumably from her namesake Kohl's line, with her hair in a braided up-do of sorts that's surely already making the rounds on Pinterest. She added a brown waist belt for some cool, undone flair — just dressing it down, ya know? — and a pair of strappy nude sandals similar to Stuart Weitzman's ubiquitous Nudist heel. Her lipstick was a deep berry; her eye makeup a flawless cat-eye. It's how I imagine she both looks and dresses every day of her life, the ideal uniform for frosting cupcakes to look like flowers or wrapping packages in butcher paper and twine — which, like, she does, doesn't she?
