Celeb Style: Lauren Conrad Have you all noticed the striking similarities between Lauren Conrad and Nicole Richie lately? First LC channeled Nicole in cut-off shorts and now, like Richie, she wore an Elizabeth and James dress. It may be mere coincidence, but I'm just saying! There's no doubt, however, that Lauren looked pretty at MTV's Upfront Presentation last night. The blue hue matches her skin and brings out her baby blues. Per usual, she kept her accessories to a minimum, but in this case, a dress that striking should be center of attention.
