The Laguna Beach Years

High School Grad

A spin-off from Laguna Beach, The Hills followed Lauren and her housemate Heidi Montag through their professional lives post-college. Laren quickly showed her love for design, and a good portion of her showtime was focused on her internship at Teen Vogue!
In 2009, Lauren released her first best-selling novel, L.A. Candy, which was followed by multiple successful sequels and separate books. L.A. Candy even landed on The New York Times Bestseller list, and Lauren also wrote her first style guide to give tips for imitating her flawless fashion sense.
Work As A Fashion Designer and Beauty Writer
After leaving The Hills to pursue other career options, Lauren began to grow as a designer and author and created The Beauty Department, which included a cosmetics line. Now, Lauren has fashion collections at Kohl's and Nordstrom.
First Comes Love...

In 2013, Conrad shared a beautiful and simple engagement shoot, announcing the news that she and William Tell were now engaged! The two looked incredibly happy and, of course, incredibly photogenic. Check out her elegant, simple engagement ring!

Baby Bump Beauty
Over the past few months, we've gotten to see so many gorgeous photos of the mom-to-be! Lauren shared this perfect photo on her Instagram to show off her baby belly.
Lauren Conrad stayed out of the spotlight for the majority of her pregnancy, keeping her personal life private. She did, however, make a very fashionable appearance at a Rebecca Minkoff fashion show at The Grove in L.A. in February. The expecting mother looks beautiful and glows as she keeps up-to-date and working hard in the fashion world.
In March, Lauren posted a cute baby bump picture of her on the beach captioned "Babymooning and pretending my blended lemonade is a margarita."
Soon after, Conrad announced that she had begun work on launching an LC Lauren Conrad beach collection. She wrote: "Up until now we only had sample sizes so I wasn't able to squeeze into one of our bikinis for my baby moon, but I lived in the pretty coverups like the one above." We love this elegant cover-up and Conrad's baby beach bod style.
It's A Boy!
Lauren revealed that she and William were expecting a baby boy through a super adorable snapshot of a vintage announcement photo that's just too cute to handle.
Khol's Maternity Line
Not only launching a bathing suit line, Lauren Conrad is also creating a maternity line for Kohl's. She had waited patiently to become pregnant herself before tackling tricky maternity wear. "I wanted to wait until I felt confident designing, like I had experienced maternity as a category myself," she told PEOPLE.
Lauren Conrad shared photos from her stunning baby shower, writing about how much she adored having close friendly and friends nearby and celebrating - "I felt so loved by my family and friends, and am pretty excited for Baby Tell to meet all of the amazing people in my life."
Pinterest Perfect Announcement
Lauren shared this adorable, Pinterest-worthy embroidery announcement to share that she and William had a new member of their family: little Liam Tell!
