Lauren Conrad poses topless on the cover of Glamour Magazine!

MTV’s golden girl is all grown up and drama-free. How’d that happen? Hard work, a sense of humor, and a new perspective on everything she went through. Allow her to explain…Glamour’s May issue is available on newsstands and digitally (iPad, Kindle Fire and Barnes & Noble Nook Color) nationwide on April 10.

Photographed by Peggy Sirota in Malibu, CA Lauren Conrad appears (topless!) on Glamour’s May cover wearing floral appliqué briefs by Bluemarine and a gold Tiffany & Co. bangle. Inside the issue, LC suns herself in a printed Rochas bodysuit and a gold Tiffany & Co. bangle; she hangs by the pool in a Malia Mills bikini and a gold Tiffany & Co. necklace; she stands pretty in a peach Paper Crown dress, Eric Javits hat and LC Lauren Conrad heels; she kneels on the grass wearing a Miu Miu top and skirt, gold Tiffany & Co. and Gucci bangles and Jerome C. Rousseau heels; and lastly, Lauren sports a stripped sweater and shorts by Bill Blass and Oscar de la Renta wedges.

On body image…

“On the vacation to Cabo, I wore a bathing suit on the beach for the first time in years. Usually I’m just petrified. A couple of years ago someone zoomed in on my cellulite and it was so mean. I took it really personally. I haven’t worn a bathing suit in L.A. in years because of that.”

On her dating life…

“I wish I dated as much as people thought I did! It’s really funny because almost everyone that I’m reportedly “dating” is a friend of mine. About half my friends are guys, and I’ve always gotten along really well with guys. You just have to laugh at it.”

What really happened on the reality TV sets…

“During shooting, the producers would send us quick text messages telling us what to talk about. They couldn’t walk through the shot, so they’d just text me, like, “Say something quick about this story line.” That’s why we were always checking our phones!”

On her friendships The Hills…

“The show is what brought a lot of us together, and when it was gone, we didn’t have anything in common anymore.”

On what keeps her grounded…

“For me, the best way to stay grounded is to surround myself with friends and family who knew me way back when. There’s nothing like cleaning my mom’s dishes or taking out the trash to remind me that I’m no different than anyone else.”

She really is beautiful, isn’t she?

New Kardashian swimwear ad photoshops away Kim’s waist and Kourtney’s pregnant belly!

Check out the Kardashian’s latest swimsuit ad!

Kim Kardashian, 31, showed off quite an hourglass figure in her blue bikini. Something seems a bit off with just HOW teenie that waist is, no?

Also – these pictures were shot just last month, when Kourtney Kardashian was most definitely pregnant. They photoshopped that baby bump off!

The girls all have a fake/creepy glow as well, making them look more like dolls than actual people. Maybe that’s the look they’re going for.

Creepy!

Victoria Beckham claims her body represents the “average woman”

Victoria Beckham insists that she uses her body as an example for her own designs.

In the new Harper’s Bazaar UK, the married mother of four, explained that she wears her own designs so she can feel what her customers feel.

“We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is six-foot-whatever and then I say “OK, I’m going to put it on. I stand for the general public here”.

“It’s how I work. I found it really difficult when I was pregnant and I couldn’t do that. It’s part of the process – I’ll stand here in my knickers and start draping fabric over myself. It was very hard when I didn’t have my body.”

But with the average British woman wearing a size 16, and certainly unable to afford a dress from the Victoria Beckham collection – adored by the A-list – and costing thousands, it’s a claim that stretches the imagination somewhat.

Victoria has established herself as a fashion designer in the last couple of years, and this year won the coveted Designer Brand of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.

The overwhelmed designer who previously enjoyed massive success with The Spice Girls said it was like an ‘out of body experience’ when her name was called out.

‘I came offstage and said, “I cried three times, I didn’t thank the people I wanted to thank, I was really rubbish”. But I think people saw the real me…and the truth is, I would have felt much more comfortable in my pyjamas with the kids and David in a hotel watching it on TV.’

She looks absolutely amazing in these pictures. I read in the interview that she claims to be a size 6, which blew me away. A 6? I would have never guessed that. I would have said 0 or 2 at the biggest! I don’t see enough curves to make her a size 6.

TIPS: Finding the perfect pair of sunglasses that are both stylish AND flattering!

Do you agree that finding the right pair of sunglasses that are both stylish and flattering is extremely tricky? Here’s a really great article that helps you find the perfect pair of shades going into spring and summer!

Too big, you look like a bug. Or worse, the goggles hit your cheeks, moving all over the place when you laugh or talk or smile. Too small and, well, what’s the point?

Sunglasses aren’t just accessories, they’re wrinkle-fighting, squint-quashing must-haves for safe sunning. They are hangover hiders, awkward-eye-contact avoiders and more. The trick is to find a pair you love and that improves your look, because if you don’t like ‘em, you won’t wear ‘em right?

Don’t be shy about seeking help finding a pair that suits your face. Do a little research before you head out, and bring along an honest buddy.

There’s no such thing as one-size-fits-all shades. The size and shape of your face impacts what styles work and which ones don’t, says Eyes on Burrard’s Steven Wilson, an expert on stylish shades.

“You can be trendy as long as it’s proportionate to your face,” Wilson says, adding the first thing he and staffers do is assess a customer’s face shape.

Some styles just don’t work on some faces.

“The biggest challenge is someone getting something in mind that just will not work on their face.”

For instance, someone with a round face — think actress Ginnifer Goodwin, from He’s Just Not That Into You — should avoid wearing round sunglasses.

“You’re looking to complement or contrast,” Wilson says.

“Not match the face shape.”

This rule holds true for square faces or heart-shaped faces too, Wilson says.

Noses are key as well.

If someone doesn’t have a strong bridge, he says, they should buy glasses that have nose pads so they don’t lie flat against the cheeks and can be adjusted.

The easiest face to fit is an oval, he says, pointing out that oval-shaped faces — like Angelina Jolie’s or Halle Berry’s — work well with pretty much any style as long as the proportion is right.

But there is a pair for everyone. It all starts with having an open mind and trying on a few pairs, as many as you need.

Your peepers will thank you.

Do you spend a lot of money on your sunglasses – or do you go cheap?
