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?
"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.
"I definitely just got called a basic b*tch! Haha!" Conrad, who's engaged to William Tell, wrote with a link and a screen shot of the article in question.
"Sausage curls!? Really @Allure_magazine?"
Making this even more surprising? Lauren Conrad has covered Allure magazine on three different occasions, most recently in April of THIS YEAR.
Basic, our a$$.
