Lauren Conrad was among the celebrity guests who ventured out to LA's Palihouse last night to preview the new shoes from Alice + Olivia by Stacey Bendet. She was joined by other celebs like Jordana Brewster, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Maria Menounos, and Shenae Grimes. LC, no stranger to design ventures herself, was decked out in one of Stacey's dresses and her signature "fun bun." Lauren hit the bash, which featured a tree made of shoes, despite being busy lately putting the finishing touches on her own new Paper Crown designs. Lauren's also spending time stocking her website, The Beauty Department, with the latest in hair and makeup trends. A recent posting was about at a hip way to do braids. LC's even ventured into the kitchen to address her cravings for Italian food, attempting to make a carbless pizza.
