Say what you want about Laguna Beach and The Hills as quality television, but do not for one second think that Lauren Conrad is not an extremely hard worker.
She just turned in the manuscript for her 5th novel, having had L.A. Candy land on the NY Times Bestseller list, had two successful shows, and is juggling two clothing lines.
So it's no wonder that Forbes would court her into writing for them, especially for their Lifestyle section!
And she start's Thursday.
Lauren’s jump from celebrity to entrepreneur puts her on the same trajectory as many a bright-eyed instant cover girl, but whether she can channel her persona into an enduring commercial tour de force remains to be seen. All considered, she’s off to a good start. LC Lauren Conrad, an exclusive women’s apparel line for Kohl’s, has burgeoned from placement in 300 stores to 1,000 in one year. Specialty clothing line Paper Crown, set to debut this summer, has already been courted by the likes of Fred Segal, Planet Blue and Nordstrom.
Starting Thursday, follow Lauren as she takes us on a four-month exploration of the fashion business, inner workings of a celebrity web site, the publishing industry and watch for beauty/style tips from the powerbroker herself.
Wow! Congrats, LC!
You have monster achievements already for being 25, but you gotta make sure to slow down and enjoy life before you can't. This is the prime age to do so, so don't overwork yourself!
Best of luck with Forbes!
