News Flash: Lauren Conrad Has Reached Peak Lauren Conrad
Stop the presses.

Lauren Conrad's new MTV reality show won't be a Hills redux. Gone are the grainy glammed-up montages of LA's freeways, Conrad says her new show will be filmed more like a "documentary." "The Hills was shot with three or four cameras; things like entrances and exits were reshot; and if there were sound issues, we were asked to repeat what we just said," LC tells Teen Vogue in her cover story. "This show is going to have a smaller crew, and they'll just be following us around. It's going to have a rougher feel, but I think the end result is going to be more true." (Right...) Her inspiration? The September Issue. The show will focus on her new line, Paper Crown, which, Conrad says, will be all about "really great fits, fabrics, and details. It won't be overly trendy—nothing that's trying too hard."
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:
We think Lauren Conrad's a pretty girl. She seems sweet, she's done a lot with very little (in terms of not having a particular talent) and she appears to be genuinely excited about "designing" clothes, "writing" books and now, giving style advice. Her new guide--Lauren Conrad Style--hit stores October 2010. But that last one--that is not one we can get behind. Sure, everyone knows that Conrad doesn't actually design her clothing collection for Kohl's. And that her fiction books are ghostwritten by one writer or another. That's common practice in Hollywood, and we don't blame her for it. But to give advice on personal style when yours is so limited? That makes us a little uncomfortable.
