As the nostalgia machine spins ever faster, sucking us all into a vortex of things we wore when we were in college, it was truly only a matter of time before Lauren Conrad's iconic "Laguna Beach"-slash-"The Hills" style made its comeback. Well, crack open the closet at your parents' house, because the inevitable has happened.
Don't believe us? Above, see what Jennifer Lawrence wore to Friday's Dior show; below, see what Conrad — then better known as "L.C." — wore to appear on "TRL" in 2005.
Granted, J.Law's look has a few 2016 updates: Chunky beaded necklaces get swapped for a choker, the pedal-pusher jeans get a baggier fit and the tank top is sheer. (And, of course, we really doubt Conrad was wearing Dior back in 2005.) Still, there's no denying that the capri-length denim worn with mid-height heels was a very Conrad signature.
This is just the first sighting of early-aughts Cool Teen™ fashion's comeback. Will asymmetrical hems and really awful fake tans be next? The rest is still unwritten.
