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?

Try not to laugh – Heidi Montag’s fall look book for Anchor Blue has arrived! The Fall 2008 Club Collection is modelled by Heidi herself which likely had to do with Heidi’s narcissism and nobody wants to be seen modelling the clothes. To be fair, Heidi’s line seems to be doing better than Lauren Conrad’s. Hopefully, this has more to do with the prices (Lauren’s line has prices upwards of $200, while Heidi’s ranges from $10 – $60). If midriff-baring tops and short pleated skirts are your thing, then these looks are definitely for you. If not, don’t worry, the gagging reflex that’s kicking in is natural.

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?

The return of Gossip Girls on Monday night clearly excited me too much. I neglected to discuss The Hills! Monday is once again my favourite night of the week. A few observations about the gang in LA:

  1. Lauren seems to have missed the memo on Kelly Cutrone’s policy on wearing all black. She wore a white outfit while “working” at People’s Revolution. To top it off, the forbidden cleavage also made an appearance even if she does have great boobs. (See side-boob picture below for reference.) Plleeeassee show Kelly bitching out Lauren. Nobody gives a tongue-lashing quite like Kelly. Except maybe my mother.
  2. Justin Bobby. Amazing. I am so glad he is back. To be fair, he was much more expressive than usual and managed to avoid burping the entire episode. Good for him for taking care of his booze problem (per Audrina). Unfortunately, he is still as dirty as ever.
  3. I think Heidi is becoming the new Donatella. Her face doesn’t even move!!
  4. I LOVE Lo. She is so candid and snarky… and maybe doesn’t like Audrina? She DEFINITELY didn’t appreciate it when they wore the same jeans. Ouch.
  5. Since when does Audrina wear Philip Lim? And is she capable of any expression except for that painful placating smile? 
One last comment that my friend Beth brought up: Does anyone else wonder why The Hills was not on air during the writers’ strike? Curious. 
Oh and Happy Birthday Beth! Hope you had a fab dinner with your “prince.” Snicker.
