Of Lauren Conrad's many "professions" - reality TV star, celebrity gossip staple, certified cutie - celebrity fashion designer is well down the list.

But even after her fashion line was dropped by one high-profile retailer, it appears Hollywood still has faith in her - 22-year-old LC has been tapped to design the gowns worn by the trophy girls at the Emmys in September.

The Hills star is also presenting an award during the show.

Lauren Conrad is "honored and excited" by the request. So far, her clothing line has been limited to simple, ready-to-wear separates and dresses, but designing a couture look is daunting. It will be interesting to see if she's up to it.

LC's confident she can craft "a red carpet look that reflects the simple, classic design of the Lauren Conrad Collection, but with a black tie twist."

Some established designers are skeptical of Lauren Conrad.

One big name, Sue Wong, didn't mince words during L.A. Fashion Week, saying she didn't believe in "reality TV stars turning into designers."

Here's wishing The Hills star luck. Prove the haters wrong!

Most people would love an extended visit to the Turks & Caicos islands. One celeb's hothead dad wishes he could get off.

Following the amazing Nikki Blonsky fight last week, her pop has tried like hell to bolt Turks & Caicos - but there he stays.

The bail hearing for Carl Blonsky took place today. The Turks and Caicos Sun (great newspaper name) reported that Carl was willing to put up $75,000 - his entire savings - to avoid any jail time. A judge had none of it.

The judge in Providenciales Magistrates' Court just ruled that Carl Blonsky will have to wait until August 19 to post bail.

Nikki Blonsky was not in the T&C for the hearing.

Earlier reports today stated that her dad was likely to make bail because of his kidney condition, which requires close monitoring.

But because of the type of crime he's accused of (grievous bodily harm) after the bitchtastic fight in the T&C airport, forget about it.

The victim of Carl's attack, former America's Next Top Model star Bianca Golden's mother Eleine, remains in a Miami hospital's ICU.

This week featured many quality celebrity quotes, but the best had to be this declaration from Matthew McConaughey last night:

"[Levi] was gonna stay home, but then he said, 'Dad, I wanna go support mom's purses!' At 30 days old, he's talking about stuff like that!"

Camila and Levi

Classic. MM was referring to month-old son Levi, who made his red carpet debut at the launch of Camila Alves' handbag line, MUXO.

At Kitson in L.A., a surprisingly clothed McConaughey walked straight through the red carpet, carrying the baby and took him inside...

The war of words between Michael Lohan and CNN anchor Anderson Cooper doesn't appear to be going away - or getting any less funny.

While guest-hosting Live with Regis & Kelly, Anderson Cooper went off the Lohans, calling their reality show, Living Lohan, a "train wreck."

No argument here. But then he offered up this quote re: Ali Lohan:

"Allegedly a 14-year-old girl, who looks to be about 60, and I say that with concern and love," Anderson said of Lindsay's younger sister.

"She allegedly wants to be a singer and or actor-slash-performer of some sort ... striptease person, I don't even know."

Ali's mother, Dina Lohan, fired back at the CNN newsman, telling OK! Magazine, "People are just cruel! This is bad karma for him."

Rather than letting this fizzle out and moving on to something important, Anderson Cooper kept the war of words going on his show, AC360:

"Let me just reiterate, I feel bad for the 14-year-old daughter. She seems like a nice person, but she should be a kid, not in a [reality show]," he said.

That's when Ali Lohan's father, and Dina's ex, Michael Lohan, came to the teenager's defense, sounding off to Access Hollywood about the anchor:

"I think Anderson Cooper is an opinionated, hypocritical idiot who should be an adult and keep his opinion to himself. He is the last person to judge anyone, when he and his own family have their own issues."

Snap! Seems like AC is just calling it like he sees it - but did he go too far?

Selena Gomez is in the middle of an alleged feud with Miley Cyrus and the subject of dating rumors regarding fellow child star Nick Jonas.

Today, though, she's talking only about her debut album.

Wanna Feel My Club?

The actress-singer is, not surprisingly, "super excited" about starting work on it. But the 16-year-old, who stars in The Wizards of Waverly Place on the Disney Channel, has some surprises in store on the music front.

"I'm going to be in a band — no Selena Gomez stuff," she told MTV News. "I'm not a solo artist. I don't think I want my name attached to it."

THG NOTE: We would totally say the same thing.

Selena Gomez, 16, is growing up fast!

The star said that the album will have a pop-rock feel to it, and she plans to play instruments on some of the album's tracks.

"I basically want to make music that is fun and that parents and kids can jump around to and have a good time to," Selena Gomez said.

Jewel is married.

The singer and her longtime boyfriend, rodeo champ Ty Murray, eloped to the Bahamas and exchanged vows in a private ceremony Thursday night.

"She wore a traditional wedding gown, while Ty Murray wore his favorite blue jeans, white shirt and cowboy hat," says Jewel's rep.

"The couple is very happy and look forward to their honeymoon."

The pair, who never announced an engagement, have been together for 10 years and share a 2,200-acre ranch in Stephenville, Texas.

Appropriately, Murray, 38, host of Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull-Riding Challenge on CMT, stars in the video for his wife's new single, "I Do."

At a charity event in Nashville days before the wedding, Jewel, 34, said of marriage, "It's something that needs to be taken seriously."

Just last year, she was in no rush to wed.

"We don't know if there's a point – we've lapped our friends who've gotten married and are already divorced," Jewel said.

"We probably would if we had kids – we're just not sure we want them yet. But we've had something really special already."

Get ready for the hipster wedding of the year.

Model Agyness Deyn and Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr., are tying the knot, a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly.

"They just got engaged!" the insider said. "It happened in the past few days."

Agyness Deyn, 25, and Albert Hammond, Jr., 28, showed up hand-in-hand to the Songwriters Hall of Fame awards gala in NYC on June 20.

Ever since, they've been inseparable in the Big Apple.

"They were locking lips passionately" at Noel Ashman's birthday at NYC's The Plumm, where Deyn served as DJ on July 3, says one witness.

Adds the pal: "They're really sweet. They basically haven't been apart for more than three seconds in the past two months."
