I Went To Lauren Conrad's Fashion Show And Lived Out My High School Fantasy

The reality star and designer brought her clothing collection to New York Fashion Week and I tried to not lose my shit.

Hello. My name is Augusta and I have been shamelessly obsessed with Lauren Conrad since 2004 when she came into my* life via Laguna Beach.

For a taste of how near Lauren is to my heart: Right before high school prom and graduation, I re-watched my Season One Laguna DVDs TWICE in preparation.

*Everyone else's lives too, I guess.

So last week when the invitation to Lauren's first New York Fashion Week runway show came into my inbox, I immediately RSVP'd yes.

I believe I actually wrote "YES, YES, A THOUSAND TIMES YES," but you get what I mean.


Also next to me was Celebrity Row, most notably seating Chrissy Teigen and Ashley Tisdale.

Let me tell you something about Chrissy Teigen. You may think she's stunning in photos, but she is fucking BREATHTAKING in real life.


At least 15 reporters interviewed her while I was waiting and Lauren had the most well-spoken, poised answers for everyone. She is such a professional.

For all of the talk about Lauren being "basic," she really does know how to make it look like she's totally fine with hundreds of cameras and reporters all up in her face. Say what you will, but that's not an easy feat.

At long last, when my time to interview Lauren came, she told me that she designed her collection with the mindset of wanting women to feel beautiful in her clothing.

And this is the photo she posed for when I excitedly asked if I could take her picture. Fifteen people before me asked for a photo, but Lauren didn't even blink when I asked because she is a class act.
