Lauren Conrad Talks About Her New Book, The Future & Fourth Of July Plans!

Lauren Conrad—former reality television star of MTV’s Laguna Beach and The Hills, fashion designer, and author—recently released Infamous, the finale to her Fame Game novel series. Real Style caught up with Lauren as she embarked on a multiple-city book tour.

Real Style: In the synopsis for Infamous it says fame can turn a girl into a target. Is this realization from personal experience?
Lauren Conrad: I think so. When you put yourself on a pedestal, people are pretty quick to tear you down. I think you learn to take the good with the bad; some people are going to like you, some people are not.

Real Style: Do you plan on writing more?
LC: This is the last book I’ve signed on to write. I may take a brief break since I’ve been going non-stop for years, but I do want to continue. I just haven’t decided what the next project will be. I have a few ideas—I’m keeping them to myself at the moment.

Real Style: What else to you have in the works right now?
LC: The nice thing about the fashion industry is that you’re constantly working on something new, so between my two lines—LC Lauren Conrad and Paper Crown—and my XO(eco) bag line, I have new collections coming out. And with Kohl’s, I just launched bedding, which was really exciting.

Real Style: How important is having a personal life?
LC: I sacrificed a personal life for a really long time, and you know the people I loved, who were around me, were also affected by it. So, it’s definitely something I don’t take for granted.

Real Style: Any special plans for July 4th?
LC: I throw a party every year for 4th of July—it’s my favorite holiday. I have a house near the beach, so we spend the day at the beach, then walk up, mix up a bunch of drinks, barbeque, hang out in the pool…it’s a lot of fun.

Real Style: What is your go-to July 4th look?
LC: It’s usually a pair of shorts and a gingham or plaid top with a bikini. It’s very casual.

Real Style: You’ve built yourself as a brand and had great longevity so far. What advice would you give others trying to do the same thing?
LC: It’s just important to do what you really enjoy. I’ve been really fortunate that I’ve been able to do what I love. And it’s also OK to say no. I’ve spent years saying no to things. It’s important to be selective with both projects and partners.
