The lovely Lauren Conrad is anything but basic to us, but Allure apparently views her as less exceptional than does THG's editorial department.

The 28-year-old beauty took to Twitter on Monday to call out Allure for labeling her exactly that in a recent style feature titled "Beauty and a Beat."

It may not look like a major diss at a glance, given that LC is famous for her understated, classic California style, but when the magazine elaborates?

Less flattering.

Lauren Conrad: Basic!

"Made famous by Kreayshawn, and viral by YouTube, the Basic woman is remarkably unremarkable," says the description under her photo.

"What's noteworthy about her style is its very plainness. Except to her. She swears those red soled shoes are cutting-edge," the article states.

"Basic" girls, Allure says, are known for their "skinny jeans" and "blowout or sausage curls." Ouch. Suffice it to say, Lauren was less than thrilled.

We've admired Lauren Conrad's beauty for years. Now there's a book all about it!

Between her signature winged eyeliner and experimentation with colorful hair hues, the former star of The Hills has proven that she can teach her fans a thing or two about beauty just as well as any magazine editor.

Thus, the best-selling author is now coming out with a style guide.

Lauren Conrad Beauty

The 26-year-old's follow-up to her 2010 fashion how-to book Lauren Conrad Style is all about hair and makeup, and will be titled Lauren Conrad Beauty.

The publisher, Harper Collins, said in a release.

"In her first guide dedicated exclusively to beauty, Lauren covers everything you need to know to maximize your own beauty potential."

"From tips for creating a strong foundation and maintaining healthy skin and hair through diet, exercise, and all-around wellness to everyday makeup techniques and tricks of the trade for special-occasion looks, Lauren Conrad Beauty provides the advice you've been waiting for."

Lauren Conrad, whose fashion line for Kohl’s and her own Paper Crown line are both going strong these days, says the trick to designing great clothes is to do so selfishly. Her motto for creating each season’s signature look?

“You know what you’d want to buy - design it,” she tells People.

There’s a continuity in each season for each line that comes from the former Hills star's very own vision. “The look is soft, romantic, pretty,” she explains.

And the 25-year-old says she’s also figured out that style isn’t just about looking good. “Dress in what makes you feel good about yourself too,” she says.

The California girl isn’t only involved in fashion these days; she just finished up her stint as a guest writer for Forbes and recently announced plans to launch a beauty line based on her popular new website, TheBeautyDepartment (dot) com.

She's also reportedly dating Derek Hough! Way to go LC!

The more you know, the more you Kohl's.

So we've heard. All we know is that the more you look at Lauren Conrad pictures, the more you realize how beautiful she is - and how cute her clothes are!

Lauren Conrad has gone back to blonde. She told Chelsea Handler on E!’s Chelsea Lately that it's because of a poll she ran on her website to let fans decide.

“I did a poll on my website I just launched, of whether I should stay brown or go blonde, and blonde won,” she said, although she doesn't look blonde.

Conrad went on to explain that her newly dyed locks - a blend of different colors - were meant to emulate "surfer-girl hair." Chelsea was a bit envious:

Wearing a dress from her Paper Crown holiday collection, Conrad revealed that she’s currently writing the first in her second series of three books.

LC also discussed MTV's decision not to air her new reality show, which got Handler going on 16 and Pregnant, the Kardashians and so on.

Despite having a job at E!, Chelsea has no qualms about shredding some of the network's other stars ... or whomever else she wants. It's great.

Looking beautiful as ever and wearing a blazer from her new clothing line, Paper Crown, Lauren Conrad covers Lucky magazine’s July 2011 issue.

With her new reality show was turned down by MTV, the former star of The Hills began focusing exclusively on her first love these days - fashion.

Mya Fashion Choice

Here's what she had to say about it:

On launching Paper Crown sans MTV: “It’s easier to launch the line without MTV. A lot of people in fashion don’t want to be linked with anything that has to do with reality TV. Showrooms were turning us down.”

On why MTV negged her show: “It didn’t feel like a perfect fit."

"It’s difficult to compete with the Jersey Shore-type shows out there. Besides, there weren’t any scenes of me getting drunk or fighting, so what’s the point?”

Lauren Conrad is launching a site called The Beauty Department. She certainly knows a thing or two about that department, so it sounds like a nice fit.

TheBeautyDepartment (dot) com is a collaboration between the former star of The Hills, her hairstylist and makeup artist, Kristen Ess and Amy Nadine.

After the news broke this February about her new reality show getting the boot, it's nice to see that LC has taken her expertise to a different medium.

Beautiful Lauren C.

Don't take it from us. We <3 the girl! That's what Lauren Conrad, always more grounded and serious than given credit for, says about herself in Allure.

“They called me “reality show talent” and I’m like, ‘What’s my talent?’” deadpans the budding fashion designer and author, who also denies she's sexy.

“I’m not a sexy person. I’m OK with it. I’ve never been a sexy girl," she says. "Whenever I’ve had a boyfriend, he’s always been like, ‘Oh, you’re cute.”

Okay maybe. But we'd say ridiculously cute at least ...

  • We <3 You Lauren Conrad
  • Behind the Scenes With Lauren Conrad

These days, she's over The Hills and is content living a private life as a successful businesswoman, designing clothes for Kohl's and her new line, Paper Crown.

More than ever, LC's trying hard to keep her romantic relationship (with actor Kyle Howard) off-camera. For that, we can only respect Lauren Conrad more.

Someone with a great sense of humor is the most important thing, and someone who really supports me in everything I do... I don’t ever want to make an excuse for trying to work hard and having my own life. I love a guy that supports that and loves that.

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