Lauren Conrad lit up the cover of Lucky's July issue in leather shorts and a blazer. She posed for the magazine in looks from her Paper Crown collection, which will hit stores this Fall. LC's juggling her latest design work with her line for Kohl's, her new website called The Beauty Department, and even a book club. She's also still filming her reality TV show even though MTV passed on the project earlier this year. LC opened up about her relationship with the network, her motivation to be on The Hills, and also shared her Summer essentials — here's more of what Lauren Conrad said in Lucky:
- On hating the gym: "I'm just not a fan of the gym. In fact, I hate it. I understand loving the feeling you get after working out all those endorphins. But going there? It's the worst."
- On why she did The Hills: "I never wanted to end up in entertainment; that wasn't the goal. I was doing the show to end up in fashion. But I'm totally aware that without The Hills, I wouldn't be where I am."
- On MTV not picking up her show: "It didn't feel like a perfect fit. It's difficult to compete with all the Jersey Shore type shows out there. Besides, there weren't any scenes of me getting drunk or fighting, so what's the point?"
