As the season 4 premiere of The Hills took place this week, news comes from industry insiders that the fashion darling of the show, Whitney Port, may be leaving her job at People’s Revolution to do in-house PR for Diane von Furstenberg. No word on whether The Hills will follow her into work or if she’ll bring Lauren Conrad along as well. Reps for Whitney have not yet commented on the matter, although the DVF press office say they “can’t confirm.”

Let’s hope that Whitney can pronounce Diane von Furstenberg properly. You may recall the Paris episode from last season’s Hills when Lauren and Whitney had trouble pronouncing Givenchy. Luckily for Whitney, she can always just say DVF if she’s unsure!

It is a sad day, my friends. News has come that our favourite Miss Bossy of The Hills, Lauren Conrad, doesn’t design her eponymous clothing line. Fox News reports that fashion insiders claim Creative Director Sherry Wood is the mastermind behind the clothes and L.C., like many celeb-cum-designers, is only a face for the front of the house.

Most alarming of all, a snoop overheard Lauren telling her pals at a Hollywood club that she “can’t even draw a sketch” after an aspiring designer asked her for some advice. One of Lauren’s friends has come to her quick defense to say that L.C. shares the work 50/50 with Sherry Wood and will stay around an hour or so during each visit at a mart in downtown LA where the clothes are conceived and manufactured. L.C.’s rep also piped in that “Lauren designs the line from start to finish, doing everything from sketching to fabric selection to fitting the garments.”

Yeah, ok. Then again, Lauren might have been a part of fabric selection considering the fabrics used are cheap and do not reflect the price the clothes sell for. (Think lots of jersey fabric) Not only that, but the fitting during her last show was famously atrocious. Models were seen in clothes that did not fit properly and many in the fashion industry snickered at this grievous oversight. Hmmm… maybe Lauren did design her collection all by herself afterall?

Although Anja Kop was the runner-up in last season’s America’s Next Top Model, she managed to land a contract with Elite Model Managementlast week. Since the show ended, the model has made some changes to go back to her roots (literally). Her hair is no longer blond and she no longer has the last name Kop – she now sports her original brown hair colour as well as the the name Anja Rozova to honour her Russian heritage. If you ask me, she had other reasons to change her name. Didn’t you know Russian is all the rage on the catwalks these days? (Sasha Pivarova, Natalia Vodianova)

Elite’s Jose Covarrubias says the agency asked for Anja immediately after the show ended, as well as her castmate, Katarzyna Dolinska. Apparently the two girls and the winner, Whitney Thompson, are doing really well and in the midst of “building her book.” Anja always stood out to me the most and I can easily see her doing a few shows during Fashion Week. The only question that remains is whether designers will embrace models that got their start on a reality tv show. But hey, we all had to start somewhere, right?

Watch your back Chuck (Ed Westwick), there’s a new boy in town. People.com reported that Marcus (Patrick Heusinger) will star as Blair Waldorf’s (Leighton Meester) love interest whom she met in Europe. But of course Chuck won’t let things slide that easily. Witnesses spotted the Gossip Girl crew filming Chuck and Marcus playing a friendly game of squash together and phone numbers were exchanged. It looks like Chuck is taking a page out of Georgina’s book – keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

Fabsugar interviewed Lauren Conrad recently and that girl doesn’t know to keep some things to herself. She explained why she acted so stiff and distant when The Hills cameras caught her meeting Marc Jacobs. But later on in the interview, she said she prefers Karl Lagerfeld over Marc! The better answer would have been that she loves both equally… especially since she once boasted that Marc Jacobs is her favourite designer.

Have you ever come across anyone in all of your nights out that made you really starstruck? Any fun celebrities?

Actually yeah, I met Marc Jacobs when we were filming and I got so nervous when I saw him that I didn’t really know what to do. I was trying to act cool, but I didn’t even stand up to shake his hand. I actually came off a little bit too cold, like I didn’t really care and I felt kind of bad. I get really starstruck over really random people and designers.

Karl or Marc?

Did anybody notice that Roberto Cavalli was a judge on Miss Universe this past weekend? It was an odd partnership, yet strangley fitting. At one point, the judges each posed a question to the top 5 contestants. While the rest of the judges asked questions like “What’s the biggest sacrifice you’ve had to make” or “What are your biggest regrets in life”, Cavalli had to make it creepy.

With an extremely peverse grin on his face, he asked Miss Mexico, “When is a woman truly satisfied?”
