It's been 11 years since Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County wrapped and seven years since Lauren Conrad's life on The Hills came to an end, and so many things have changed for the stars of both series. In addition to numerous stars from Laguna Beach becoming parents over the past few years, the career paths of our favorite reality stars have really changed along the way.
The Laguna Beach alum have gone on to careers in fashion (Trey Phillips always said he wanted to design and now he does, for Vera Wang), marketing (including a BFF firm created by Alex Murrel and Morgan Souders), and acting (aka Stephen Colletti on One Tree Hill).
Some of the Hills stars have continued their reality-star glory, like both Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag, who appeared on shows like Celebrity Big Brother. Brody Jenner, on the other hand, has become a DJ, and Audrina Patridge has gone on to design swimwear.

To see which fierce females (yes, they are all ladies) have made a name for themselves in the lifestyle realm, keep reading — and prepare to be inspired!
