Lauren Conrad may be best known for her starring roles on Laguna Beach and The Hills, but over the years she has proven herself to be quite the triple treat. The blond beauty has blossomed into an author, designer, and beauty guru — not to mention one of our favorite celebrity social media fixtures. What we love most about Lauren's style is how laid-back, put-together, and incredibly accessible it is. She's got a serious knack for fusing high fashion with California beach babe, which is an aesthetic that we can all get behind. From embellished party dresses to glamorous red carpet confections, Lauren's signature style continues to evolve — and she's taught us more than a few styling lessons along the way. So get a pen and grab a seat, then take note of LC's most stylish looks over the years.

Just when you thought that center parts were here to stay, celebrities change the game. A bevy of women stepped out this week with styles that were deeply parted and swept over to one side. Lauren Conrad brushed her ombré curls to one side and kept the other side loose, while Kerry Washington pinned one side of her hair against her head. And Eva Longoria gave her loose hanging curls some serious volume at the crown. Side parts are universally flattering, but whose did you prefer?
Last night Lauren Conrad hosted the launch of Malibu Island Spiced, and she wore a hot-pink lip color that was perfect for the summery theme. Lauren balanced her vibrant magenta shade with a subtle eye look. She skipped her signature cat eyeliner, opting for a smudged look along her top lashes instead. To keep your lipstick from smearing (or melting if you're battling hot temperatures), apply a lip liner to the entire lip before applying a coordinating color on top. Shop our favorite hot-pink products below to get a look similar to Lauren's style.
No look at The Kentucky Derby is complete without a hat. That was evident from this weekend's festive celebrity looks from Lauren Conrad, Krysten Ritter, and Coco Rocha, who finished their ladylike ensembles with coordinating headwear. Coco Rocha made an entrance in sophisticated skirt suiting — but it was the dramatic orchid-adorned headpiece that really turned heads. Krysten Ritter dressed up her floral-print dress and Bionda Castana heels with a floppy ribbon-trimmed hat, and Lauren Conrad paired a soft nude polka-dot sheath dress with a nude floral-adorned fascinator. That's the rundown on who wore what — now, take in the hat-topped looks below and cast your vote for the Derby's best dressed.
Despite the rain, the 139th Kentucky Derby rolled into Churchill Downs today, bringing with it all the hats, horses, and mint juleps that mark the annual event. Stars got a head start on celebrating last night at parties all over Louisville, and the fun continued today as famous faces and fans watched Orb win the Kentucky Derby in the stands. Lauren Conrad, who flew in on Thursday, brought a neutral look and lavish topper to bet on the horses, while Armie Hammer and his wife were dressed to the nines as well. Krysten Ritter and Jennifer Tilly chose over-the-top hats for their day at the races, and model Coco Rocha met up with Steffi Graf for a special event yesterday. There were plenty more stars to see, so click through now!
Baseball season is in full swing, and Ginnifer Goodwin and Julianne Hough teamed up to open last night's Dodgers game with the first pitch in LA. Many other stars have had the honor of taking the mound to throw the first pitch for their favorite baseball teams as well. Victoria Beckham donned an LA Dodgers jacket to throw the ceremonial ball, while Matthew McConaughey suited up in Mets gear to show his skills in NYC. Tom Cruise packed some heat on his pitch at a professional baseball game in Japan, and Gisele Bündchen showed off her muscles on the mound in Boston.

This week, she's giving us her tips for stylish graduation dressing.
Graduation is of course a wonderful celebration. Not only does it mark an entirely new chapter of life, but also, it's a ceremony that recognizes your hard work and achievements throughout four years of college. It's a special occasion, so it's a good idea to put a little extra effort into your look. Since I've been to many graduations, I'm pretty well versed on the topic of dressing for the occasion. And recently, I've been thinking about a few tips to help all of you upcoming graduates put your best foot forward in front of your professors, classmates, family, and friends. Here are a few things to keep in mind on the day of the ceremony . . .
- Choose a cute but conservative dress.
You will of course want to look cute in photos with friends on the big day, but also keep in mind that graduation is a ceremony for people's parents, grandparents, and professors. That said, don't reach for the trendiest, tightest dress in your closet. Instead, opt for a cute and conservative style that will look appropriate in front of friends and family alike. Since graduation is in the Spring, I would recommend choosing a sleeveless style — especially since those robes can get a little toasty. This little number from my Paper Crown Spring collection is an adorable option:
- Wear comfortable shoes.
Being comfortable on graduation day is a must. You will be walking, standing, sitting, posing, and more! If you don't want to go the sandals route, I suggest finding a pair of wedges that is comfortable to walk in. They will give you support and make your look more dressed up than flats. It's also important to remember that when you're wearing your cap and gown, the only thing people will see are your shoes, making them equally as important (if not more!) as your graduation dress. Find a pair that is classy, cute, and comfortable, like this pair by Joie.
