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 lauren is an awesome designer, I recently just purchased a black high waist fitted skirt from her line which was only $30 from intuition and I love it! She’s a wonderful role model to young women, she works hard, and has a lot of admiration. Best of luck Lauren!

Lauren, please LOSE the hair extensions! Otherwise, great luck with the Emmy design; that should be a fun project. I think Lauren’s other designs aren’t very unique and really only appeal to a very narrow demographic. That doesn’t mean she’s not talented…we will see.

Is this really what she want to do? If The Hills is fake, that make Lauren a good actress. So why clothes when she doesn’t have a real job? I really didn’t like her old line , haven’t seen the new.
