Lauren Conrad - Emmys 2008 Red Carpet

Lauren Conrad is all smiles in a navy chiffon gown she designed herself for the 2008 Primetime Emmy Awards held at Nokia Theatre on Sunday (September 21) in Los Angeles.

The 22-year-old Hills star is set to present at the ceremony. Lauren and last season’s Project Runway winner Christian Siriano also designed gowns for the trophy girls this year.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the dress Lauren Conrad designed for herself — YAY or NAY?

  • bean

    Looks like any other regular dress, there is nothing special about it

  • secret

    i love her and her sense of style.

    she radiates beauty

  • Chrissy

    omg i love her dress and her hair! seriously… does she do that all herself of does she AlWAYS have a stylist?? cuz her hair is always gorgeous!!!

  • wendy

    Love it, she is beautiful.

  • emilie

    why is she there?

  • melissa


    that dress has been done before, MANY times.
    so really, all she did was add that tacky brooch.

  • Eme

    I hate to say it, because her style is cute (not unique – but she wears trends very well): Her much “hyped” dress is nothing special… the shape, the color, the broach. It’s falls short of “couture” quality. Boring and drab. It looks like a dress anyone could pick out at a department store… ON SALE.

  • dee

    ok i seriously gotta ask ya’ll a question is just me OR does she ALWAYSSS have the same facial expression ?? LOL . she looks the same in almost every pic ive seen her in

  • erin

    In my opinion, the dress is simple yet pretty but will anyone remember what she wore tomorrow?! It lacks any “Wow” factor for me.

  • Erica Ann

    The dress she designed is gorgeous, and she looks stunning in it!!

  • marissa

    a complete letdown.
    just as boring and uninspired as her lauren conrad collection. the girl has a severe lack of talent and creativity. she does not deserve the opportunities she is given!

  • jenna

    I love that dress!

  • ew

    I don’t like the black eyeliner she always wears. The dress is nice but once again she looks like she’s smelling a fart in all those pictures. Her smile is bad lately. Like she’s uncomfortable or something (fart smelling).

  • Caroline

    her dress is so average. even looks kind of cheap. the shape style color and broach are all so bland normal and seen before. i think the only reason why it looks somewhat decent is because she is wearing the dress, her prescense makes it look a bit better

  • gina

    The dress is really simple. Nothing all that special or memorable about it.

  • Susan

    I like it. The dress is gorgeous.

  • ew

  • twyla808

    What the fuck is so extraordinary about her dress? She’s no designer, just some hack. I was in her fundamental sketching class last year at fidm and homegirl can’t sketch a dress to save her life.

  • twyla808

    And just so you know, that class that she’s in with Stephanie Pratt is actually a beginners adobe illustrator class taught by Barbara Sultan. Which coincidentally she took AFTER she launched her fashion knits line. FAIL!!!

  • olivia McGillis

    absolutely gorgeous.

  • michelle

    She looks absolutely amazing like always but its true, the dress is nothing special.

  • ash

    her dress is gorgeous.
    and the dress she designed for the emmy’s is being worn by one of the trophy girls.
    why all the hate about the dress lauren is wearing?

  • krystal

    Seriously? She is not a designer! her dress is boring my 5 yr old sister could have been more creative. the dress is average and boring and that broach is BORING! plus her make up looks like it does evry single day… I think she is a beautiful girl and she looks pretty but she is NOT a brilliant designer as she might think she is..oh btw that dress looks like somethink you can buy on macys for $49.99

  • Elaine

    She looks fantastic! Her dress is gorgeous! I’m impressed.

  • Kris

    Okay people chill out! ..

    is the dress stunning and does she look gorgeous. that’s a given YES.
    haters don’t deny it .. She looks good..

    NOW is the dress special. unique. a stand out. a dress that looks like it was designed by a great designer? NO. Lauren is a pretty girl and she wears some really cute stuff.. BUT she’s not an inovater of any sort..

    I could walk into a dress store and see one just like that. .. her dress she made is nothing special..

    But she does look very pretty..

    But i can’t call her a fashion designer.. I can only call her a wannabe fashion designer..

    She needs to original in her design and seperate her designs from everything else out there.. If she’s gonna be taken as a real designer she needs to step her game up .. She comes no where close to the taste and the designs that Oscar de la Renta, Christian Dior, Vera Wang, or Zac Posen… Those are REAL fashion designer.

    She’s a pretty girl .. but she’s not a fashion designer. let’s get real.

  • twyla808

    why all the hate? Because she’s no designer and her dress is underwhelming. If you want to talk about beautiful dresses, America Ferera’s and Mariska Hargitay look absolutely stunning in their’s.

  • Krissy

    i like it.. i dont get the brooch?

    join today!

  • jughed

    simply divine! :)

  • boogie

    pretty lady.

    Dress—not too hot. She should have used different material. Material looks too “casual” ?

  • irene

    the least she could do is stand up straight

  • Takara

    It’s so sad how all these celebrities think that putting a nice little clip to their dull dress is going to make it oh so fashionable and amazing. The dress is as boring and bland as ever.

  • TORI


  • Emily

    I wonder how much longer she’s going to keep self-tanning. She’s always a shade of orange. -__-””””””” What a way to keep your skin healthy.

  • chirrrrissttyy


  • tia

    i bet u real actors and actresses are pissed shes there since almost everyone in hollywood hates that show

  • hillsfan

    What a stunner. She designed a beautiful, classy gown.

  • meh!!

    Meh is boring, she looks the same as she always does, and why is she there?

  • adam

    wait, why is she at the emmys??? seriously? does she not realise that her show is one of the most hated by actual professional actors?

  • kate c

    beautiful!! love the dress and broach and love her

  • Jenna

    She looks beautiful. It’s a classic design and nothing is wrong with that. She totally fits in with the rest of the gowns. Give her a break, she is only 22 years old and just starting out.

    And yes she should be there. She has been on MTV’s top show for 4 years. So what if she doesn’t act. I would like to see one of those actors carry a show without a script for 4 years. Stop putting her down!!!!!

  • Kristine

    She looks great! I am a Lauren Conrad fan…I like the dress. I would wear it, but I was hoping for a little more from her.

  • lola

    46- lol she shouldnt be there just cuz shes been on mtv! shes a REALITY tv star! she doesnt actually do anything to do with performing, acting, anything. so it just seems awfully random that she was asked to design a dress and present. especially when her clothing line hasnt been doing that well due to its insane pricing.

    and what do u mean u’d like to see ppl be on a show without a script??? it’d be pretty damn easy! im sure they would kill to be paid almost 100 grand per episode to just go to lunch and talk about their friends. im sure anyone would rather do that instead of an actual job. she gets paid more than half of the actors there and they actually work their butts off everyday.

  • corey

    you dont needto be a “designer” to make a dress like that. it’s plain & boring.

  • katl

    It is so average I could find that exact dress any department store. Its sad that she is considered a designer!!
