Lauren Conrad Won Something, Kind Of
Us Weekly has named Lauren Conrad celebrity designer of the year (insert mediocre reaction here). I can't say I agree with the magazine's decision, as the pool of celeb-turned-fashionista is getting deeper by the minute: Mary Kate and Ashley for The Row, Mila Jovovich for Jovovich-Hawk, Justin Timberlake for William Rast, Pharrel Williams for Louis Vuitton Jewelry, among many others. Lately it has been hard to tell which celebrities are designers, which designers are celebrities, which celebrities pretend to be designers but really just slap their name on some clothes (eh hem Heidi Montag), and which designers also forsake their trade by becoming rehab attending celebrities themselves via Marc Jacobs 2006. I will give LC credit though, she is back in design school and she did stitch up a dress on the first episode of The Hills...before burning a huge stain in it.
