Let's go back, back to the beginning...
Will we ever stop wanting to talk about "Laguna Beach"? Seems unlikely.
So off, off site, outside of the official Lincoln Center New York Fashion Week tents, the “Junk Food presents NFL/Elements Curated by Kristin Cavallari” runway show went down mid-Tuesday afternoon. Yes, the title is quite a mouthful and pretty mystifying, so let’s break it down for you.
Remember Lo Bosworth? LC's BFF down in Laguna until evil Jen Bunney ruined their friendship? Well, she's back in front of the camera. And while we're not sure exactly where her friendship with surprisingly successful fashion and beauty mogul Lauren Conrad stands now, she seems to have gotten herself into a pretty similar line of work.
Is the feud between Kristin Cavallari and Lauren Conrad--the one that began 10 years ago (yes 10!) on Laguna Beach over Stee-phan--officially over?

Nearly a decade later, Laguna Beach is still a sore spot for Lauren Conrad--and not just because of her tarnished teenage romance.
Lauren Conrad's newest book, Lauren Conrad Style is out today. While we have differing opinions on this site as to whether Conrad's a true style authority, this adorable baby photo from LC proves she had style from her her heart-shaped sunnies down to her toddler ankle that she holds just-so (though the Lauren Conrad of today would never let a snapper get so close to an upskirt shot). Conrad's style evolved from Laguna Beach to The Hills to today, and her evolution into a polished classic California cool girl has inspired and influenced countless teens. And let's face it, if you ever rocked a small braid, some credit is due to Miss Conrad (and her hair stylist). Of course, now we'll be able to get more LC style in her newest MTV show, which will focus on her contemporary line, Paper Crown. Lauren Conrad Style offers style advice and tips that helped transform the reality show star into the polished young lady she is today. Here, from her new book, her five go-to pieces:
Rumor has it that MTV has canceled (seemingly) successful scripted reality series The City. The current season, which airs on Tuesdays at 10.30pm EST, will be its last. The City, a spin-off of the The Hills, which was a spin-off of Laguna Beach, documents the "life" of Whitney Port, a young designer trying to make it in New York. It mostly takes place at real-life fashion industry companies, including Kelly Cutrone's public relations firm People's Revolution and Elle magazine, where main characters Erin Kaplan and Olivia Palermo "work." (Kaplan does indeed work full time at Elle, Palermo does not.) In general, we're a bit surprised by this news.
