Lauren Conrad in Allure November 2012

LC Shows Midriff and Talks Dating in Allure

Lauren Conrad wore red lipstick in Allure.

Lauren Conrad went retro for Allure's November issue, which goes on sale Oct. 23. She's juggling multiple projects, including her fashion lines and latest books, as well as her relationship with boyfriend William Tell. LC and William made their red carpet debut last week, and in the publication, LC reveals her past dating troubles and how she's handling the spotlight. Here's more from Lauren Conrad in Allure:

  • On dating: "You don’t want a slob, but you don't want a guy who's constantly borrowing your tweezers . . . The last year and a half, I was dating a lot, and it's slim pickings."
  • On being in the spotlight: "People felt that a lot of the things I had were undeserved, maybe because I didn’t have a specific talent; I was more of a regular girl and maybe didn’t deserve the attention. I think anyone in the public eye is going to be hated, and a lesson that I needed to learn quickly is that it is impossible to please everybody. One person will call you classy, and another will call you boring."
  • On The Hills: "I think the story they told wasn’t a dishonest one. The way they did it sometimes was. They aren't going to be there for everything. Sometimes two of their main characters will get into a fight, and that’s important to the story line. The [producers] need that reenacted. Their thing was always: it did happen. They're not making this up: you just didn’t see it."
