The lovely Lauren Conrad of The Hills is more than just a beautiful girl. She's a beautiful girl with a serious knack for the fashion industry!
She may "date like a guy," but LC, who has her own fashion line coming out this month and recently designed her own dress for the Teen Choice Awards, doesn't fool around when it comes to clothes. Us Weekly goes behind the scenes of the making of Lauren's dress for the awards show in this awesome picture gallery ...
"I first had the idea and gave it to the pattern maker," says Lauren Conrad, shown here at her design partner's Santa Monica, Calif., office August 7."I can sketch and sew. It's what I've always wanted to do," The Hills and Laguna Beach star says of her self-titled clothing line coming out in September.
LC's red carpet rule #1: "When you have 100 flashbulbs on you, make sure fabric is not see-through!" It's sage advice. Many celebrities wouldn't ever follow it.
And: "A good red carpet dress is something you're comfortable in. You can strut!" says Lauren, who won Teen Choice Female Reality/Variety star.
In case you didn't know, you can follow all the trials and tribulations of Lauren and BFFs Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port (oh yeah, and LC's former BFF and current nemesis, Heidi Montag, and her fiance Spencer Pratt) on The Hills every Monday on MTV.
