Fashion Flashback: Lauren Conrad Then & Now


Lauren Conrad (Getty)Lauren Conrad has gained a fan following by being absolutely perfect yet somehow totally relatable. She's the perfect hostess, the perfect advice-giver, the perfect dresser—she's even mastered the perfect cat eye. And we can only imagine she'll be planning the perfect wedding! But achieving that sort of flawlessness requires some trial and error.

Along the road to becoming this generation's Martha Stewart, LC tried out several red carpet looks before hitting her stride in prim collars, flared dresses and skater skirts. Don't get us wrong, she's never been anything but a stunning California beauty, she's just refined her fashion down to a science. Now she has the sort of signature unwavering style we strive. Don't buy it? See what we mean with these triumphant before and after photos.
