The Hills' Whitney Port Turns Designer!

Ahmad Elatab/Splash News Online

First Lauren Conrad launched her successful clothing line and Heidi Montag announced her upcoming Heidiwood collection — and now Whitney Port is joining the design fray. The former Teen Vogue intern’s contemporary clothing line, co-designed with pal Adrienne Baravetto, will launch this fall in upscale boutiques like Planet Blue. The 17-piece collection will feature a lot of navy, pink, multi-colored jackets, tie-dye and sparkly dresses that will retail from approximately $100-$500. Sounds like Whitney’s line is perfect for a night out at a L.A. hotspot or working at her other new gig, the public relations powerhouse People’s Revolution.

She’s only doing it b/c Lauren’s so successful right now.

Haha. Is this a joke?

Why are all these T.V. nobodies designing clothes they try to pass off as “fashion”? It’s all really boring. LC’s stuff is all overpriced draped jersey-knit stuff you could find at Urban Outfitters-and now she has a runway show to top it all off. No more Celeb or wannabe celeb “designers” PLEASE!!!

Whitney’s line will be great..I can’t wait!
Both her and Lauren have great fashion taste.
& to the person who said she is only doing it because Lauren is so successful I disagree with you — both Lauren & Whitney went to school for fashion design and have been working in the fashion industry for quite a while now. I do however think Heidi is only doing it because of Lauren – Heidi has no knowledge of fashion and dropped out on her second day of fashion school!

Congrats to Whitney & Lauren!

After seeing this post I am considering to create a reality fashion show similar to Project runaway but I will call it Catwalk Boredom and all of those wanabe designers aka starlets will compete who will create the most clueless boring collection with the cheapest material and then sell it for the highest price. LOL

I love whitney! i think her line will look gorgeous! and i love lauren’s line as well! but heidi’s line was horrible…there was nothing special about them…

Nourhan on

Maybe I could have a spot on one of these reality shows and get famous and then start my own fashion line !
I’ve noticed that it is becoming some kind of a trend these days..Whitney Port , Lauren Conrad , Rachel Bilson , Lindsay Lohan ,…..It’s getting kinda boring.

chelsea on

i cant wait!!! shes such a fashion statement all in her own ;p


Who are these people and who is letting them design clothes? Most of them have never set foot outside the US let alone studied fashion or have worked under real designers. Lauren’s line is BORING and everything looks like it was done before. Whats next? They all will have record deals?!

samma ramma on

you people have no life .

AnnieJ on

I’m with R and JC. What a waste of time.

Maimuna on

i think her line will be really good, because she has a fab sense of fashion!
i think i’ll be buying it :)

jessica on

I think it’s great. they both went to school for that so it’s not that whitney is doing it because of LC… Now heidi is a different story. She wants to be famous sooo bad and shes doing anything to get in the headlines!!


Whitney’s line will be great it might even be better than Lauren because she is risk taker. Lauren line was lovely as well and I am going to buy a few piece from her fall collection. However, I saw Heidiwood in another website, I had to LOL. It looked like clothes for hookers def would not even consider buying such rubbish.

good luck to whitney and lauren! it is great they are trying to do something with their lifes and want to be sucessfull.
better then the other stars who are only known for their sex tapes, DUI busts or drug addictions.


Intotally agree. Celebrities have way too much time on their hands. Why not spend some free time helping others and experiencing some real hands on work and not just relying on others talents and calling them your own!!!

All I want to say is Rock On, Whitney. She has wanted this for so long, and it’s time she gets her opportunity. Canada loves Whitney!! :-)

moi on

I think Whitneys Fashion line will be good. For me, I’ve always thought Whitney has had the best clothes choice out of all the girls on the show.
I hope it does well. She seems mature and like a hardworking girl.

Heather on

To everyone saying that Whitney is only doing this because Lauren is so successful:
Whitney attended fashion school and met Lauren while interning at Teen Vogue. Obviously she already wanted to become a designer long before she met Lauren.
