Lauren Conrad confirmed to PEOPLE that she will be designing at least one dress for
next month’s Emmy Awards, calling it a “huge compliment”. “I’m doing one. I may be doing two,” she said Saturday in Las Vegas before hosting a night at Christian Audigier The Nightclub. The designer of the Lauren Conrad Collection will be dressing the show’s “trophy girls” who bring the awards on stage for the eventual winner. Conrad elaborated, “It’s a huge compliment to be asked to do that, and it was really amazing to be taken seriously.” The invitation to design the dress is a major victory for Conrad who has been chastised by some who recently said she isn’t involved in her clothing line. “I didn’t even really respond to the rumors because they were so silly,” she said. “It was someone who knew how important the line is to me and knew that that would hurt me.” Dressed in BCBG, The Hills star also squashed rumors that she is dating My Boys actor Kyle Howard. When asked is the two were dating, she laughed, saying “No, but I do know him, yes.” — Mark Gray

I think she is a joke. She is a rich and priviledged girl that had her way paved for her due to her parents and their status. Her clothes are crap and she shouldn’t be taken seriously as a designer.

Congrats LC! I think she’s correct that some folks are trying to ruin her, but I’m so proud of her for staying positive and continuing to work hard. I’ve seen some of the negative rumors and didn’t believe it. Stay positive and continue to work hard because some of us won’t be swayed and will continue to send you positive vibes.

I have met her in person, through a friend, a few years ego, before Laguna or the Hills. Well lets just say she is not smart at all, she is selfish and meterialistic and relays on her parents money. How sad!

I think it’s funny that people think she is so privileged and comes from a family of status, and couldn’t possible have any real talent. I’ve watched her shows from the beginning, and while her family is well off, they’re not connected to high society or Hollywood or anything like that. I think her dad is an engineer or architect or something…

It is a huge honor for her to have this opportunity, we haven’t seen any formal desgins from yet so it could certainly be argued that she doesn’t deserve this chance so early in ther career. But the Emmy’s are all about TV and he’s a very popular TV personality… I guess it makes sense.

Her line is simple casual wear, it’s well made, flattering, generally on trend, and I may add, it gets better with each collection. But that being said, it is a mainstream off the rack line. There’s a big difference between what she’s been doing and what it expected of her now. I hope she takes this opportunity seriously and shows us all what she can do.
