PS: So many women grow out their hair prewedding, but you recently cut your long locks. What inspired it?
WP: I’ve been looking at myself in pictures throughout my life with long hair, so I just didn’t need that quintessential image of a bride with long wavy hair. I just didn’t need that for myself. I wanted to change it up, and I wanted something more modern and sleek.
PS: Any wedding planning addictions?
WP: When I am at my computer at work, all I want to do is go on Pinterest. I love Pinterest. I just think it’s such a cool platform for people to share digital imagery. But I work with my sister, and she can see my screen, and she’ll say, "Whitney . . ."
PS: Lauren Conrad and Olivia Palermo, your fellow reality star pals from The Hills and The City, are both engaged, too. Have you reconnected to talk wedding planning . . . or fashion design?
WP: I see Lauren, and we keep it friendly, social. No shoptalk. I saw Olivia this week [at the CFDA Awards], which was actually the first time I’ve seen her since filming the show.
