For an entire generation of twenty-somethings in Ireland, The Hills beauty Lauren Conrad was like the incredibly stylish older sister we never had. We were with her through thick and thin while she interned at Vogue, when ultimate TV villain Spencer Pratt started that rumour, and when Jen Bunny made off with her long-time crush Brody Jenner.
Although we might have felt empathetic twists of embarrassment at some of her teenage outfits on Laguna Beach, by the time Lauren upped sticks to Los Angeles to attend college, she became a dependable source of style inspiration in almost every scene. Even if her friends weren’t very on point a lot of the time, her accessories always were.
Heidi Montag, you know what you did.
These days, Lauren is a recent newlywed and has her own gorgeous line of bridesmaid dresses. And her flawless fashion sense is still very much present.
