Lauren Conrad gives a nod to spring on the cover of Lucky Magazine's March 2013 issue in a fun and flirty white sleeveless, embroidered sheer tank paired with classic denim cut-off shorts. For her accompanying editorial, the 26-year-old fashion designer is featured in several enticing, warm weather pieces from Jil Sander to Banana Republic, including her own line, Paper Crown. Inside, Lauren talks about her weekends with her boyfriend, her plans for a family and what effects her reality TV experience had on her fashion career.
Lauren on spending time with boyfriend, William Tell: "Honestly, he studies all weekend and I've been working. I'm renovating a condo, so I've been spending my weekends shopping for home stuff at flea markets."
Lauren on having kids: "I want kids, but not in the immediate future. All of my friends in their early 30s who just started having kids say, 'Give it a few years.'"
Lauren on being a reality TV star in the fashion industry: “The TV show did not help my reputation very much. It was difficult to be taken seriously. But I think the fact that I went to school to study fashion and worked in the industry helped me. I think it’s a good thing to feel like you have to prove something, because you’re always going to have to work a little bit harder.”
Lauren on advice that has stuck with her: “I can’t remember who told me this, but it was ‘Get your clothes tailored.’ Like most people, I used to wear clothing off the rack. But having them fitted to me makes a really big difference, especially with pieces like a cocktail dress. Little nips and tucks can take 10 pounds off you.”
What do you think of Lauren's cover? Have any of your read any of Lauren's books? She is a New York Times best selling author and also says she'd like to write a dating advice book.
