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

Lex, not “meterialistc”, MATERIALISTIC. not “ego”, AGO. You’re in no position to judge someone’s intelligence level.

To those of you bashing on Lauren…How would YOU feel if you were a celebrity with your own clothing line and people were trashing on you about how your clothes suck, etc. You should think before you speak about someone else’s achievements. She has earned this 100%..if you don’t like her, don’t read things or look at stuff about her. Simple as that..

I think Lauren is a beautiful woman who is classy and sweet and works hard. Jealousy is so trivial.

Lauren Conrad is a whiny little tiddie baby. She thinks that everyone is against her…as if she were important enough for people to totally conspire against her. anyhoo. Lex, you sound like a retarded person. You seriously need to go back to school to learn basic spelling.

Well “LEX”, I don’t think people in glass houses should throw stones. It’s pathetic to say other people are not smart when you can’t even spell or use the correct words in your sentence. Sorry, but I just call it like I see it. Besides, it must be awful to be so jealous of someone that you feel you need to bash them for living out their dreams. Maybe you should get one of your own and leave her alone.

I don’t have an opinion about her designs, but I’m worried about all of that tanning she does! They show so many pictures of her lying out by the pool, and it’s really starting to show in the wrinkles around her eyes! Keep out of the sun, LC.
