Allure’s April 2014 Cover Girl Lauren Conrad Shares Wedding Planning Tips

She looks amazing in these photos. One of the few MTV girls who seems to have her head on straight and used her fame to create a career.

Lauren Conrad met her fiancé, law student William Tell, on Valentine’s Day two years ago. (They were set up by a mutual friend.) “We’ve set a date, but we’re actually not telling anybody. We’ll send out the save-the-dates, but until then…” the 28-year-old says with the wisdom of someone who has been a paparazzi target for a decade. “It’ll be about 200 people, but I’m still figuring things out.” We asked her how she’s planning a wedding while her fiancé studies.

Gauge his interest. “I ask him if he cares before I start asking questions. So I’ll say, ‘I’m looking at food or flowers or whatever,’ and before I even get into it, I say, ‘I want to know if you care about this.’ Sometimes he does, and sometimes he doesn’t.”

Be fine with his answer. “I’m glad [Tell] doesn’t care about the flowers. I wanted him to see sketches of the dress, but he said absolutely not. I’m wearing it for him! But if he doesn’t want to see it, I don’t want to make him. He loves music–that’s his life–so he picked the band.”

Time yourself. “I’ll ask him, ‘Is this a good time?’ I keep a list. So when it’s a good time, I’ll say, ‘OK, just real quick…’ And I keep it short. If you don’t do it in ten minutes, then you lose him.”

Don’t stress. “One of my girlfriends got married a couple years ago, and I talked to her the next day. She was like, ‘Yesterday I was a bride; today I’m just married.’ She was so bummed. Are you kidding me?! My friends who enjoyed their weddings the most were the easygoing girls. Things are going to go wrong; not everything is going to be perfect. But at the end of the day, we’re married and happy, and it’s great.”

“Take any trend you want and relax it. That’s how California does it,” Conrad says of her beach babe style. “If it’s silk button-up shirts that are in, you probably don’t button them all the way, and you cuff a sleeve, you know what I mean? It’s almost like how your outfit looks at the end of the day.”

“Your bed is for sleep and sex,” Conrad says her busy schedule and habit of working in bed. The author and designer also has a wedding to plan, as she and former Something Corporate guitarist William Tell became engaged in October 2013.

Lauren Conrad lands the July cover of Marie Claire!

Lauren Conrad is doing well. Her reality TV days are long behind her, and she’s finally found love, and couldn’t be happier. In the new issue of Marie Claire, she opened up about her boyfriend William Tell. “He is very good for me because we have a lot in common as far as where we grew up. It’s the first time I’m with someone and I’m not explaining things.”

‘He also has experience in the entertainment industry, so he understands a lot of things that people don’t always get,” she added. Her 33-year-old boyfriend is an aspiring lawyer and used to be the guitarist for a band called Something Corporate.

Lauren has just-published Infamous, a novel based on her experiences that reveal a fuller picture of herself than the heavily-edited image that the MTV series painted her as.

‘I only ever got to tell half my story,’ she told Marie Claire, on why she started writing. ‘People are very quick to judge these days, especially behind the anonymity of a screen name.

‘It’s very easy to say, “I hate her, I hate what she wore, she seems mean.” But you’re only seeing a small fraction of her life.’ CONTINUE READING… More »


Lauren Conrad Covers the November 2012 Issue of Allure

 

Conrad hasn’t been on a television show since The Hills ended in 2009, yet the obsessive interest in her love life continues. And to our surprise, she was willing to talk about it. She said that she’s endured her share of horrible blind dates, but the last one panned out. “I met my boyfriend on a setup,” she said of William Tell, a law student and former guitarist for the rock band Something Corporate. “I did not go with high hopes, though. What was nice about us is we both went in with preconceptions, but they were quickly broken.”

Conrad’s fans devour her advice on beauty, fashion—and etiquette. She told us about her dating rules (“No kiss on the first date. You can’t give it up right away!”), her taste in guys (“You don’t want a slob, but you don’t want a guy who’s constantly borrowing your tweezers”), and the problem with Los Angeles men (“The last year and a half, I was dating a lot, and it’s slim pickings”)

Conrad’s latest book, Lauren Conrad Beauty (HarperCollins), includes step-by-step hair and makeup lessons. “I didn’t want it to sound like a manual,” said Conrad. “I wanted it to sound like a friend or a big sister explaining it to you.”

When she was growing up, her first department-store makeup kit featured every color combination of eye shadow and only two shades of foundation “because [they thought] you’re either black or white. Do you know what I mean? It’s either really dark or you’re a mime,” Conrad said, laughing. “I always had a really white face, and I would match my eye shadow to my top every day, because I’d have, like, 50 colors to choose from.”

What makes someone beautiful, according to Conrad? “I think there’s something to be said about someone who is beautiful but isn’t aware of it,” she said. “There’s something really beautiful about being humble.” Conrad herself walks the line between confidence and humility. Her one attempt at taking a burlesque class didn’t end well. “I was terrible!” she said, blaming poor coordination. “I had a fedora, gloves that I would remove, and a boa. I thought it would raise my confidence, but it sort of destroyed it.”

Conrad credits her father, an architect, and mother for giving her a head for business. Her rule of thumb: “It’s OK to say no,” Conrad said. “I think people are smart and know when you’re doing something for money. I never really felt the need to do things simply for a paycheck.” Here, hairstylist Serge Normant and Allure creative director Paul Cavaco join Conrad on the set.
