Style Star:

 

Reality TV star turned fashion designer/New York Times bestselling author/blogging extraordinaire Lauren Conrad personifies easy, breezy, California style. From her daily uniform of a C&C tank and ripped jeans on Laguna Beach, to the side-braid style she made ever-so-popular from her days on The Hills, to her sophisticated and simple style as of late, there is no look that this beachy (now ombre’d) blonde can’t pull off.

So what is the secret to LC’s fabulous, yet effortlessly chic style? She has figured out what is most flattering for her, and runs with it. She is able to dress up basics with fabulous accessories and fun hair and makeup, yet never wears anything overtly trendy or embellished. Her upcoming fashion collection, Paper Crown, places an emphasis on fabulously simple, timeless pieces that can be mixed and matched to create a plethora of looks suitable for any occasion, body type, or style.

Lauren’s most recent looks showcase her ability to put trendy hair and makeup looks with simple, well-tailored clothing to create a style that is all her own. Let’s take a closer look!

On a recent appearance on Chelsea Handler’s show (just hours after she turned in the manuscript for her fifth novel – is this girl an overachiever or what?!), Lauren looked gorgeously glam in a black mini-dress with lace overlay, worn with chunky wooden platforms. Her hair was perfectly plaited to the side and with the help of makeup artist Amy Nadine (with whom Lauren runs beauty blog, The Beauty Department), she looked positively radiant. You can get Lauren’s look by pairing this dress [choose one]

Amy Nadine definently used a nude lip color to help.

How do you think Lauren Conrad’s style can be translated best to your own life?

tarte’s Director of PR/ Resident Fashion Maven ‘SPILLS’ on what products are in her bag

JC: You’re a big runner/fitness buff.  What are your top three songs to get you going and keep you motivated?

CCB: From hip hop to pop, I’m constantly switching up my iPod! I’d have to say my top 3 picks are: Cinderella Man by Eminem, Midnight Show by The Killers and Kanye West’s Flashing Lights. For cool down there’s nothing better than a little Africa by Toto.

JC: Candace’s hair = Barbie. Spill the beans on how you keep your hair so healthy?

CCB: You’re too kind! First off, I have to thank my mom for genetics. She has super thick hair, too. While I don’t really want to admit it, I don’t wash my hair that often (maybe 2-3 times/week)! That’s one of my key secrets. I’m all about dry shampoo in between washes. I’ve tried them all—Oscar and Klorane are two of my favorites. As for styling products, I’m a big proponent of Moroccan oil. I’ve been using it for over 8 years. Also, I’m all about supplements. On a daily basis, I take a multi-vitamin and an Omega 3-6-9, which helps promote healthy hair.

JC: You live a green lifestyle and I know your metro card is an essential. Have any other earth-friendly recommendations for getting around this summer?

CCB: It sounds simple, but I put on my Havaianas and walk to work! If I’m visiting my parents or traveling for a weekend, I love riding a bike to get places.

JC: Page turning ‘Must- Read’ recommendation for the beach blanket?

CCB: That’s one of my favorite things about the summer—turning off the electronics and enjoying some lazy time reading a new book. Right now, I have “Water for Elephants” in my bag and I’m most certainly picking up Chelsea Handler’s latest book “Lies Chelsea Handler Told Me.”

JC: I don’t think I’ve ever seen you in the office without a fabulous pair of Jimmy Choos or Louboutins. Do you have a favorite style?

CCB: At 5’1”, I’m all about a platform heel! Those are my absolutely favorites. Over the summer, I’ll take a wedge heel any day and in the winter months there’s nothing like a boot that gives you the appearance of long legs (ahhh a girl can dream, right?)

JC: What’s your ‘desert island’ lip product and why?

CCB: Hmm…that’s a tough one! I swear you’ll find at least 5 variations of lip products in my bag and depending on my mood I’ll opt for pink, coral or red. If I had to pick one it would have to be our LipSurgence™ natural lip tints. I’m obsessed with these, especially amused paired with bronzed skin. Just gorgeous! Can’t go wrong with it!!

So tartelettes tell us……….what’s in your bag?
