Spotted: Lauren Conrad of The Hills, at the Redken Real Control cocktail party at West Hollywood's Warren Tricomi Salon on Wednesday night.
LC was asked about her clothing line, The Lauren Conrad Collection, which has been greeted with both criticism and praise since its debut.
Specifically, some critics believe Lauren and other celebrities (like Heidi Montag and her "Heidiwood" label) have no business in fashion, and are only trading off their names, made famous by reality TV stardom.
Lauren Conrad is famous from The Hills. Does that mean her clothing line should be taken any less seriously? Or is this just how Hollywood works?
LC's take on that very question: "I would not be able to have the line if I didn't have [The Hills] first or I wouldn't be able to have it so soon, but because I was on a reality show, you don't get the respect that you want and ... I have done everything to deserve it as far as all the designing and everything that I would've done, reality show or not. Because I got the opportunity so much sooner, people are quick to criticize."
People may hate on LC sometimes, but as long as there are Hills episodes to watch and Lauren Conrad photos to look at, all is right in our world.
