She's been a part of our lives since 2004, when Laguna Beach provided a glimpse into the lives of Orange County teenagers. She then went on to star on The Hills.

Lauren Conrad called it a reality TV career in June of last year, after the fifth season of the Laguna Beach spinoff, citing a desire, in part, to live a more private life.

While that's meant less of LC on our screens, we haven't stopped loving the celebrity fashion icon and best-selling author! Today she is 24! Happy birthday, Lauren!

In honor of the special occasion, here's a 24-photo tribute to our girl. Click to enlarge the pics below, then send in your birthday wishes to Lauren Conrad today!

Many celebrities resort to plastic surgery to enhance their looks.

Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port, alumni of The Hills, are not among them, as both are committed to staying beautiful naturally. This interview with them is from late last year, but is still topical in light of the recent Heidi Montag plastic surgery debacle.

“I think it’s a personal thing,” Whitney, now star of The City, tells me. “They feel like it’s necessary and it’s going to make them feel more confident."

If that's what they believe, "then more power to them," she adds.

Lauren Conrad says the need for plastic surgery stems from fame.

Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad are all-natural (and all-cute)!

“It’s hard because you’re in that position where you’re being criticized for everything,” LC, whose novel L.A. Candy is getting the silver screen treatment.

“Do you ignore it, and try to be beautiful on your own and be happy with the way you look? or do you listen to the criticism. They put them on this platform, and they tear them apart and then they criticize them even more for changing themselves."

"I think you just try and be confident with the way you are.”

Although Whitney Port and Lauren Conrad don’t admit to enhancing their looks through surgery, that doesn't mean they don't make the best of their natural features.

Whitney says that among her go-to beauty products are Fresh Black Tea eye cream, and she also wears Trish McEvoy #3 perfume, Snowdrop and Crystal Flowers.

LC, who says her eyes look “round and boyish,” swears by Mark’s Get In Line liquid eyeliner. For scents, “I wear 15 different perfumes. Anything with a gardenia.”

Whitney Port laughs, “Oh, so does my mom.”

Having posted an impressive 15-1 record in fashion face-offs on The Hollywood Gossip so far in 2009, Lauren Conrad's style sense is seldom questioned.

That said, it's little surprise the ex-Hills star is unveiling some style tips in a new book, Lauren Conrad Style, to be published by Harper Collins next fall.

She’s a successful reality TV star, designer and fiction writer, and now we'll be treated to new fashion advice and Lauren Conrad pictures straight from LC.

Conrad says she wants to show her readers exactly how to interpret her classic and cool style into their lives, and is “really excited to write a style guide.”

“I think fashion should be fun and reflective of who you are. When you wear clothes you feel good in, it shows in everything you do," she adds. "I know this guide will offer simple, practical tips to help anyone look fabulous.”

Lauren Conrad's latest business foray will be a fashion how-to.

Conrad recently began designing an affordable clothing line for Kohl’s stores, and launched her own line, the Lauren Conrad Collection, the year before.

This year, Lauren released her first book L.A. Candy, which was a #1 New York Times bestseller; the sequel, Sweet Little Lies, goes on sale in February.

As for a return to reality TV? She says don't bet on it.

Not only are they wearing gold dresses, but Kim Kardashian and Lauren Conrad have more in common than reality-TV stardom - they're famous for their style.

Kim's one of the most photographed celebs around, always sparking debate with a vast array of fashion choices. LC similarly looks fabulous in, well, anything.

Pit them against each other in a face-off of fantastic frocks of gold and there's no telling what will happen. Kan Kim and her kleavage possibly topple Lauren?

But can LiLo pull an upset? Don't count her out just yet.

LC celebrated designer Rebecca Minkoff's Spring 2010 line in her polka-dotted shirt, while Lohan hit the town in L.A. in her polka-dotted blouse under a cropped blazer.

You don't see Lauren Conrad nearly as often as you used to these days, and that's by design. After six-plus years of being filmed on Laguna Beach and The Hills, the SoCal cutie has been happy to fly under the radar a bit.

While we respect such a career move immensely, we do miss her on TV. The show just isn't the same with Kristin Cavallari as the central character. Come back, LC!

Here's Lauren Conrad at the launch of Hyde Lounge in L.A. on Friday:

The always-stylish and beautiful LC makes an appearance.

Last week, Lauren Conrad attended the Avon Hope Honors Benefit on behalf of the m.powerment campaign, her philanthropic initiative with mark cosmetics.

The former star of The Hills opted for a retro look, reminiscent of Rita Hayworth and Veronica Lake, showing off a polished complexion and a velvety finish.

We like the subtle rosy glow, and the fact that unlike so many stars of today, who opt for the same, revealing appearance, LC keeps it both classy and sexy.

It seems like that would be a contradiction in terms, but we think she pulls it off.

You? Take a look at Lauren at her event last week and vote in our survey below:

What do you think of LC's retro look?

I don’t feel girly without long hair! There is something so sexy about having long blonde hair. It’s so feminine.
