Lauren Conrad Goes Brunette (Temporarily)

We saw a sneak peek at Lauren Conrad’s new brunette locks when she was seen on the set of a photo shoot for Harper’s Bazaar. Now the images have been released!

The fashion magazine had the California girl change up her signature blonde hair for a day-long experiment. But even a wig wasn’t enough to disguise the famous LC.

“I think initially the wig threw people off, but they figured it out."

"I felt like it only disguised me for a moment, then it made me feel like I was hiding, which made me feel silly,” Lauren Conrad told Harper’s Bazaar of the change.

Brown Haired Lauren Conrad

Lauren Conrad might have considered dying her hair dark to keep The Hills producers from for coercing her to come back on screen, but she recalls, “I went into a wig store and tried on a brown wig, and then they all laughed at me."

"All the women [who worked there] were like, ‘You look like Hannah Montana.’"

So after a day in her dark wig, Lauren Conrad had officially reached a verdict: “Day to day, I can only do blonde. Everything else makes me look sort of plain-Jane.”

Do you like Lauren's brunette look?

Yes! It's cute and fun!
No, she's a beautiful blonde!

Lauren Conrad Tops N.Y. Times Best Seller List

Lauren Conrad was a fan favorite on Laguna Beach and The Hills. Her recent reality TV retirement has apparently done little to diminish that status.

The 23-year-old's debut novel, L.A. Candy, which draws parallels with LC's real life, has topped the New York Times Best Seller list - for two weeks!

"If someone said to me five years ago that I would one day make the New York Times Best Seller list I wouldn't have believed it," Conrad said.

"I am so honored that it is now a reality."

Although she is used to the spotlight, she's still in awe over her literary accomplishment, especially given that this is her first foray into fiction: "It was such a compliment to be included in something with such established names."

L.A. Candy is loosely based on the life of Lauren Conrad, and follows Jane Roberts, a 19-year-old girl who moves to Hollywood and ends up as the star of her own reality show, surrounded by all sorts of interesting characters.

Lauren Conrad’s Hair: Prettier as a Blonde or Brunette?

Not to worry, Lauren Conrad lovers. It's just a wig.

But the California blonde nevertheless gave up her signature hairstyle for a long brown bob – albeit only for one day while posing for a magazine.

"I got to wear a brown wig all day," LC Tweeted.

"It [was] fun though ... Kinda like playing dress up."

What do you think? Does Lauren Conrad look better when she wigs out - or with the traditional, blonde locks we've come to love over the last three years?

Lauren Conrad Stays Dry, Visits Late Night

Not even the unusually rainy June weather on the East Coast could stop the beautiful Lauren Conrad from smiling as she made the talk show rounds this week!

The umbrella-toting author and former star of The Hills stopped by The Early Show and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to talk about her first novel, L.A. Candy.

Of course, she dished a little on the show she used to be on too.

Here she is making a rainy arrival ...

Under My Umbrella

We would stand under that umbrella any day.

Here's Lauren Conrad's interview with Jimmy Fallon, in which he and LC poke fun at her signature facial expressions, asks her about her book tour and thanks her, on behalf of America, for creating the gruesome entity universally known as Speidi.

No talk of ricocheting babies, but maybe that's a good thing ...

Lauren Conrad: Spencer Pratt Apology Was Fake

Fans of The Hills wondering why Lauren Conrad didn't say a word when Spencer Pratt called her to apologize on The Hills now have their answer:

She wasn't even on the other line.

Interviewed on The View this morning, LC was asked about the call from Spencer Pratt, in which he said he was sorry for spreading the sex tape rumors about Conrad and asked her to please attend his upcoming wedding to Heidi Montag.

Fake, fake, fake, Lauren Conrad says.

Put on the spot, Conrad hesitated briefly before throwing the show under the bus, but ultimately did so, admitting her contempt for the program that made her a star for the past five seasons, and expressing no regrets about leaving it.

That the show is about as "real" as Heidi Montag's rack is hardly news, but this is the most blatant admission by a cast member yet. Here's the interview, in which Lauren discusses her new novel, L.A. Candy, and Stephanie Pratt's bulimia ...

Lauren Conrad: Boo, Plastic Surgery! Yay, Fashion!

Unlike her former co-star and friend Heidi Montag, Lauren Conrad won't be going under the knife anytime soon – and it's all in the name of fashion.

"You know what, I prefer a flatter-chested look," Conrad, 23, tells Access Hollywood. "That's just kind of me. I think it's more of a fashion look."

"If you look at a lot of high-fashion models and things like that, they're always you know, a little flatter ... I like the way clothes fit better."

"Big boobs?" LC adds, "No I mean ... that's what wonder bras are for!"

Amen to that, LC. Take that, Heidi.

Sweet as L.A. Candy

While The Hills star says she doesn't have any plans for plastic surgery, she would not rule out the possibility of getting Botox in the future.

"I'm 23, I think that I'm good for a little bit," she explained at a release party for her novel L.A. Candy. "But, I don't know, maybe later on."

Despite how well things are going to beau Kyle Howard, Lauren Conrad says she has no plans of settling down and starting a family anytime soon.

"I'm not someone who feels like a pressure to get into that," says LC. "I think that I'm still pretty young and I've got a while to do all I want to do."

"I think that when you have kids, it's all about them," Conrad adds. "So, I think that I need to be selfish for a little bit and do it all about me."

We just hope no more babies get thrown at her.

Conan O’Brien Admits Hills Addiction, Lauren Conrad Describes Ricocheting Babies

Last night on The Tonight Show, Conan O'Brien tried to defend his obsessive viewing of The Hills by pawning it off on his wife, and its retired star, Lauren Conrad, talked about some of her previous encounters with fans of the show.

LC, who was there on her L.A. Candy book tour before the conversation turned to more important topics, discussed a time when a crazed fan literally threw a baby at her.

In case you were wondering, babies do not ricochet.

Here's an excerpt of Lauren Conrad's talk with Conan O'Brien - and Curb Your Enthusiasm star Larry David - about that particular fan run-in:

Conan: So she threw her baby at you?
Lauren: But my back was to her, and it ricocheted off of me, and I was like-
Conan: Babies don't ricochet!
Lauren: It did, though!
Conan: I have had two babies. They do not ricochet. They hit and slide.
Lauren: But I was moving. So it ricocheted.
Conan: That's one of the stranger stories I've ever heard.
Larry: I'd like to steal that story for my show!

Check out the video of Lauren's trip to the Tonight Show below ...

Lauren Conrad Embarks on “L.A. Candy” Book Tour

Looking gorgeous as ever, former Hills star Lauren Conrad hosted the launch of her new book L.A. Candy at Thompson Hotel on Wednesday in Beverly Hills.

The retired reality TV star hopes to her her book adapted for the small screen: "It’s one of my hopes," said Conrad, 23, of a televised version of Candy.

"We're going to start working on that when I get back from my book tour."

Here's the star at last night's event ...

Lauren Conrad: L.A. Candy

As much as she complained about being on The Hills towards the end, would Lauren Conrad be open to a return - or field new offers for reality TV forays?

"I asked not to hear them," she said. "I said, 'Don't tell me anything.' So, problem solved, and I got to enjoy time away. But my two months is up now."

She's also not giving up her fashion collection: "I have my line at Kohl's but I'm also working on putting back together my original line," she told E! News.

One thing she won't be doing? Checking out Kristin Cavallari's debut on The Hills. "I probably won't watch it," Conrad said. "I'm not a huge TV person."

Somewhat ironic from a person made famous by TV, but more power to her. Click to enlarge more Lauren Conrad pictures from last night's book event ...

Lauren Conrad Book Review: Not Terrible!

Whoever ghosted Lauren Conrad's first novel L.A. Candy, isn't half bad!

At least that's the conclusion of the New York Daily News, which says LC's literary debut "leaves fans something to hold onto beyond memories."

Conrad, seemingly ably assisted by a collaborator, tells the story of Jane Roberts, a young beauty most notable for her sweet nature and innocence.

Sound familiar?

She moves to L.A. with her BFF from kindergarten, gorgeous, smart–mouthed Scarlett. Soon enough, they meet a producer making a new reality show.

The two are perfect for "L.A. Candy"!

Beautiful Conrad

'CANDY' GIRL: LC's first novel is ripe with allusions to The Hills.

Note that while Lauren Conrad is an aspiring celebrity fashion designer, Jane's ambition is to be an events planner. In fiction, creativity is everything.

The first night they're miked up and sent into a club, camera crew in tow, they run into a blond "wearing more makeup and hair products than clothing."

Turns out she's wearing a microphone too.

Madison, the wily one, introduces her friend, Gaby, who's so stupid she shouldn't be crossing streets without adult supervision. OMG, it's, like, so on.

Cameras follow the four everywhere (As Lauren Conrad once said: 'I wake up in the middle of the night and I think I'm being filmed') and Jane's uber-beyotch boss is suddenly all encouraging of this new phenomenon.

She begins to question what's real about her new "reality."

It seems the only person who hasn't signed a release form to get close to her is Braden, a struggling actor who she can't resist. But he's confusing her.

Brody Jenner is rolling in his grave right now.

This other girl, Willow, with whom he has a complicated relationship. So naturally Jane takes up with his best friend, Jesse, the baddest of boys.

Jason Wahler is rolling in his grave right now.

Jane emerges as the star of the show as Madison seethes, running to a vile editor of Gossip magazine to dish some dirt on Jane and score a profile in return.

Heidi Montag is rolling in her grave right now.

As the Braden/Jesse situation blows up, Madison strikes. Dear, trusting Jane doesn't see it coming. How naive is she? As much as she needs to be to play the heroine in a story created (term used loosely) by Conrad, who has her own brand of savvy.

NOTE: No reality stars were harmed in the making of this novel. And Conrad has a future to forge, with two more books to come, and an iron in the fire.

Fictionalized versions of Speidi, Jason and Brody appear to be present in Lauren Conrad's new young adult fiction series. Hey, should make it entertaining if nothing else.

Lauren Conrad’s Rocker Look: Love it or Loathe it?

Lauren Conrad raised eyebrows with her appearance at the MTV Movie Awards.

Just how did LC, 23 and known for her natural beauty, come to look like that?

According to People, makeup artist Amy Nadine took The Hills star's look from soft to edgy at the MTV Movie Awards, using Mark cosmetics (which LC endorses) to craft a budget-friendly look that would "really bring out her eyes."

Lauren ConradLC at TV Movie Awards

Lauren Conrad's makeover took place in four steps ...

  1. Applying Mini Mark-It Stick in Shell over lid and Flip For it Spring Color Kit in Los Angeles on the crease and outer corners.
  2. Blending Winkstick Hook-Up Eye Shadow Stick in Demure at brow bone.
  3. Lining eyes with On the Edge Hook-Up Liquid Eyeliner in Cleo and sweep on Make It Big Mascara in Raven.
  4. Giving lips pop with Dew-Drenched Lip Color in Juicy.

What do you think? Did you like Lauren's look?

Oh yeah, totally!
Not particularly.

Lauren Conrad Brings the Heat at Dodger Stadium

Following in the footsteps of BFF Whitney Port, who did these honors a few weeks back, Lauren Conrad threw the first pitch Saturday at L.A.'s Dodger Stadium.

Wearing a Dodgers cap and customized jersey, LC demonstrated good form, even if she throws a little like a girl. Which we suppose is okay if you are a girl.

The retired star of The Hills, who was cheered on by actor boyfriend Kyle Howard, brought luck to the home team, which beat the Philadelphia Phillies, 3-2.

Here's LC throwing the high heat ...
