Lauren Conrad provided the privileged-yet-palatable girl-next-door persona for the first two season’s of MTV’s humongous hit Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. Then she moved on to headlining The Hills, the even more successful spin-off reality series that followed her as she studied fashion, interned at Teen Vogue and a fashion PR company, partied with pals Heidi Montag, Whitney Port and Audrina Patridge and blushed over bad boys like Jason Wahler, Brody Jenner and Doug Reinhardt from 2006-2009.Sex tape rumors spread by her ex-bestie Montag and her fiancée Spencer Pratt and the following years-long feud fueled the show’s ratings. Her reality reign paved the way to numerous magazine covers, a 2006 Teen Choice Award win, a cameo in Epic Movie, a deal to be the face of Avon’s youth cosmetics brand mark, a fairly successful fashion line in 2008, a three-year relationship with actor Kyle Howard and chart-topping novels (2009’s L.A. Candy and it’s 2012 sequel Starstruck) and hip how-to manuals (2010’s Lauren Conrad Style and 2012’s Lauren Conrad Beauty). Following her 2011 split with Howard, she moved on with musician William Tell.
