Lauren Conrad, looking every bit the Southern California girl she is, is featured on the cover of Marie Claire's July 2013 issue wearing an electric yellow Fausto Puglisi curve-hugging dress featuring a black and white, polka-dot bodice. For her accompanying editorial, the fashion designer dons a plethora of hot summer pieces from Emilio Pucci, Fausto Puglisi and her own line, Paper Crown. Inside she dishes on everything from why she started writing to her boyfriend, William Tell.
Lauren on why she started writing: “I only ever got to tell half of my story. People are very quick to judge these days, especially behind the anonymity of a screen name. It’s very easy to say, ‘I hate her, I hate what she wore, she seems mean.’ But you’re only seeing a small fraction of her life.”
Lauren on the negativity: “There is always gonna be a little bit of…negativity, which just comes with the territory. You realize it doesn’t matter. It’s so simple, but it’s a very hard lesson to learn. At the end of the day, it doesn’t really affect you in any way.”
Lauren on her boyfriend, William Tell: “He is very good for me because we have a lot in common as far as where we grew up. It’s the first time I’m with someone and I’m not explaining things. He also has experience in the entertainment industry, so he understands a lot of things that people don’t always get.”
What to you think of Lauren's cover? Will you be picking up a copy, when it hits newsstands on June 18th?
