EXCLUSIVE: 'Lauren Conrad Style' Cover Revealed

Courtesy Harper Collins

We were thrilled when we first heard back in November that Lauren Conrad would be writing a style book, and we weren’t the only ones that wanted her fashion feedback. Conrad tells PEOPLE exclusively that her new tome was, in fact, inspired by all of her fans. “The first book tour I went on, I had the opportunity to meet thousands and thousands of fans. The majority of the questions were about fashion,” explains Conrad. “It was fun to share all the things I had learned.” So what will you see in Lauren Conrad Style? Besides tons of never-before-seen photos and relatable advice from Conrad herself along with her glam squad, expect “personal stories, live and learn stories,” and yes, even “a couple of high school horror stories.” While Conrad does find wearing cocktail dresses on the red carpet easier than dressing for everyday life, she devotes chapters to every occasion, even deciphering dress codes like the dreaded business casual. Her must-tip: don’t be afraid to take your pieces to a tailor to achieve your perfect fit. “Most of the things I buy are tailored,” she dishes, emphasizing the importance of finding your best fit instead of just following trends. Lauren Conrad Style will hit bookshelves on October 5, 2010, the same date as her third novel Sugar & Spice. Find out more about Lauren’s books at harperteen.com. –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

Allison on

What a bad picture of her for the cover…. the raggidy bun, the bug eyes…. not the best choice for the cover.

k on

has lauren finished at FIDM yet? i doubt it.

Mattie on

She’s ALWAYS on point with her fashion choices…. I think it’s a must read!*~

Jon on

That’s nice!

m on

While I’m sure this book is going to be amazing, i’m not digging the pic on the front….really lc???

Missy on

She looks gorgeous…as usual!

Pam on

It is so nice to see her doing well. She must be so happy to be out of all “The Hills” drama. Go Lauren!!

Brynn on

Too bad she didn’t have a bigger creative side like Whitney Port has and could produce collections in New York because I like her as a person but not as a designer.

Snoopie on

Well done! You look fabulous! Everything you do is with class, your parents should be proud!

Tiff on

I do not like this pic of her. It makes her look about 40. I don’t think it’s good for the cover of a book, I never would approved that.

jean on

i agree with allison. lauren is such a natural beauty there had to be a different/better way to go.

Chrissy on

It looks nice, it looks like she’s channeling Audrey Hepburn…

Faye on

Hey Allison

Can you please post a picture of your book cover so we have something to compare it to? Thanks!

TeamLC on

Yeh LC! Pic is beautiful as I am sure the style advice will be as well!

Delana on

Lauren seems like a very motivated person and I am so happy for all of her success. However, she looks like a robot in this picture, which suits her bland personality.

Julia on

I hope all of you who are saying negative things about her picture are PERFECT. Obviously, we all have our opinions, but she approved this picture so therefore must like it. Why is there always something negative??

HH on

hair & makeup and her outfit (or lack thereof) looks perfect…I just wish it were more of a high fashion type of photo (maybe a side view of her face). I’m glad she out grew The Hills and focusing more on fashion and writing.

k on

At least she’s a celebrity that actually has an education in the field and actually has a right to give some advice on the subject. Plus she does always look cute. I think I may have seen Whitney Port in one flattering outfit

Alley on

Allison, You’re just jealous! She’s beautiful no matter what! You just wish you had her fame and money. Don’t hate!!

Luna on

That is NOT a flattering picture of her– she looks creepy. Not stylish or elegant..And I would buy her book if she actually had a unique style– all her dresses look the same and her personal style doesn’t set her apart from the crowd…These “celebrities” need to stop getting book deals unless they have something interesting to read about

sarah on

Unsure how i feel about the cover picture but I cant wait to buy this book

Allison on

@ Alley.
I never said she in general didn’t look good b/c normally I think she has good taste… I was talking specifically about this picture for the cover was NOT a good choice. back off princess!

Carol on

Can’t compare LCs fashion sense with Whitney Port now…WP is definitely much more casual more of a night out, party type of style than LCs designs. LCs fashion is more on the up side than the others. WP I believe has only one style pretty much whereas LCs fashion’s are designed for all occasion. Cute pic for the book.

becky b. on

it looks like she’s holding her breath. weird.

sarah on

I Dont understand why they didnt photoshopped the bags under her eyes

Star on

I love her but they could’ve chosen a better picture for her book cover.

Mecala on

I love Lauren and her fashion! But this cover is not very flattering…sorry!

Why on

What this photo Lauren? You should be smiling or serious- this is strange, I would seriously suggest a photo swap!

Essie on

She looks great, and she’s not airbrushed! she looks real and i think it’s a nice change from the usual stuff!! Good job LC!

Brooklyn on

LOVE the cover!

Kathy on

She is a pretty girl, and I agree that they couldve used a better picture for the cover, but if she approved the pic, then its all that matters since it is her book. Delana, you totally contradicted yourself saying that Lauren seems like a “motivated person” and has a “bland personality.”

rere on

Yeah, they could’ve picked a better picture for the cover.
I am happy and proud of LC. I’m glad she didnt
go down the same demented road Heidi is on now.
At least LC and Whitney are doing something productive with their lives and not just relying
on their looks like poor Heidi. But then again,
Pamela Anderson is still successful so I guess
if she gets lucky Heidi will still be around for
awhile….

Kaylyn on

Lauren looks AMAZING on the cover. Can’t wait to read it!!

Steacy on

Ew.

ellen on

I have to agree with Allison I think she could have chose a much better photo. Don’t get me wrong she’s beautiful but there’s something about that pic I don’t care for.

Black Butterfly on

She is cut from a different cloth of those typical plastic, over processed, bleached and fake baked HILLS bimbos/Bimbettes…I like Lauren she carries herself with class. The others prove that money, being white/blonde don’t equate to having class and decorum.

Emily on

I actually jumped when I saw her picture! They need to redo the cover!

Kelly on

I think the book will be a hit but the picture is kinda scary. I’m not gonna lie. I was expecting something more elegant.

Delana on

Kathy, look up the word contradicted. A person can be motivated and have a bland personality. Personality has nothing to do with motivation– your personality is simply who you are and how you present to others– be it outgoing, shy, dull, or introverted. When Lauren was on The Hills she came across as a rather dull person, but that clearly doesn’t mean that she can’t be motivated, driven, and successful.

Megan on

I think she looks great – love LC!!

Some of you people need to work on focusing on the positive and not the negative. If you don’t like the cover, fine. But is it necessary to critique the picture as well.

Christine on

Gorgeous cover, she’s a natural beauty for sure!

Natasha on

Harpers Collins need to rethink this cover if they want the book to be a hit. Lauren is a gorgeous girl but she looks scary with the bug eyes on the cover. Another photoshoot with a better picture will go a long way

She is an amazing person!!! The picture is beautiful!!!! And she has great style!!!! It’s so gret that she is doing so well!!!! I love the l.a. Candy books they are great!!!! I think you all should give her a little more credit for what she has achieved considering her age!!!! :)

LD on

It is a quite awkward pose – she looks as if she’s craning her head down to see into the camera.
She may have liked it and approved it, but actually, that’s *not* all that matters. Books are judged instantly by consumers, and you need a cover that pulls people in, intrigues them, and, especially for a book like this, makes them confident that the content is legitimate and worth reading. To me, that photo doesn’t convey that. She doesn’t look confident at all.
That’s not to say she’s not good-looking. It’s just a strange choice.

Natasha on

Umm the Lanvin inspired bun

@Brynn – please tell me you are not believing what you see on The City; that whole show is scripted. Whitney is not a designer nor did she create any of her own clothes. HAHAHAHA I never thought anyone would buy into such fiction. So sad.

The cover is spectacular. Lauren knows what works for her and has always expressed an interest in fashion since age 7, I’m so happy she’s able to bring it to the world. She’s never one to “try” when it comes to wearing great pieces, she just does. Her style has always been classic, clean and polished. So happy for her, what a wonderful career she has created for herself.

I think Lauren is trying to go for the fierce look here. Maybe she’ll swap the cover picture. Until then, this book seems interesting and it’s good that she keeps her style classy and fit for many occasions.

She looks incredibly uncomfortable in this photo. Like a deer in the headlights.

Jena on

Why is it that people won’t give Lauren some credit. Is it jealousy? She has stayed true to herself and her love of fashion. Since the beginning of Laguna Beach, she has said she wanted a career in fashion and that is exactly what she has done. She has worked in the fashion industry, went to fashion school and has had 2 fashion lines. I think that qualifies her to write a style book. She has probably learned a lot along the way and wants to pass that advise along to other people. She has a classy California style that I would be happy to have my teenage daughter copy. Her style book is giving fashion advise to her fan base, who happen to love her style.
