Lauren Conrad and Kim Kardashian are linked in more ways than one.

Both star on reality shows, though The Hills is bigger than most, while Kim's just stars a bunch of morons whose names begin with K.

Both have been linked to sex tapes, though Lauren's may or may not exist, while Kim's ... yeah, Ray J definitely hit that piece.

Anyway, tell us who wins this celebrity fashion showdown - LC, who paired Diane von Furstenberg top with shiny leggings for an evening out in L.A., or Kim Kardashian, who went with classic dark denim for an outing Down Under...

Who wore it better, Lauren Conrad or Kim Kardashian?

Oh, that's Selma Blair in between them. Somehow she snuck in there. We're mostly concerned with The Hills' Lauren Conrad and aspiring actress Rumer Willis, though. Both of them added multiple inches to their hair in the past week with super-straight hair extensions. Do you dig it or not?

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.

It's funny how Lauren Conrad and Carrie Underwood end up in so many of our celebrity fashion clashes here at The Hollywood Gossip.

Maybe we're biased towards a pair of celebrities we have crushes on, but at least some of it must have to do with their trendy fashion sense!

In this case, the country singer rang in New Year's Eve in Times Square in the same Betsey Johnson coat that The Hills star recently rocked.

Somehow, they both make it work. Possibly because they're beautiful and can pull off anything. But tell us, who wore this coat better?

Carrie Underwood vs. Lauren Conrad... you decide!

Some celebrity news photographers spotted a casual Lauren Conrad yesterday, which is worthy of a post on its own. She's really cute!

But what we're really writing about is that The Hills star has announced that her nuch-anticipated fashion line is now being sold in stores.

The 22-year-old Lauren Conrad said of her clothing line:

"I'm excited to announce that my clothing line, the Lauren Conrad Collection, is now available in stores. My spring line has been shipped out to stores. Last night, I launched my line at Intuition in Los Angeles, and I have to say that it was amazing to see my clothes hanging in a boutique."

"The complete collection should be on the site by the end of this week. Also, the Dolly Print scarf, which was sold out, is back in stock. I hope you all like it and thank you for your support. My Linea Pelle handbag collection is also available."

We've checked out Lauren's spring clothing line and we have to say, it's a sharp website. Our interns tell us that the clothes are pretty hip, too.

Not that they can afford them. Lauren's line is a tad pricey for gals earning meager wages blogging celebrity gossip. $75 tank top? Forget about it!

On a side note, Lauren's line includes a dress called "Whitney," no doubt in honor of her beautiful friend, co-worker and co-star, Whitney Port.

LC loves heels, and among her favorite pairs are the "Rio-8" spectator Dolce Vitas: "I love Mary Janes, they're really cute. This pair of Dolce Vita's make me tall."

The California cutie likes sticking with easy breezy dresses but when she does slip into a pair of jeans, The Hills star opts for the Lux high waisted three button jean.

Her dress of choice? The Audrina - named after roommate and friend Audrina Patridge, and available from her namesake clothing line. LC says: "I love the Audrina dress. All the pieces are comfortable and emulate my personal style."

The designer's favorite accessory is a Hamsa hand string bracelet. "This was a gift from friends when I was having a hard time. It protects me," says Lauren.

When it comes to fragrance, Lauren Conrad loves her Miss Dior Cherie.

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.
