Lauren “LC” Conrad was born on February 1, 1986 and raised in Laguna Beach, California. In 2004, the high schooler was approached by MTV to be cast in the reality TV series Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County. The show documented the lives of the blonde and her friends, including every make-up, break-up, and girl fight that happens in high school. The show aired for three seasons and focused on this close-knit group of friends, including Conrad, Lo Bosworth, Kristin Cavallari, Stephen Colletti, and Talan Torriero. Laguna Beach garnered thousands of viewers and led to many spin-offs. In fact, the ending of the show was what sparked creator Adam Divello and executive producer Liz Gately to create the hit series The Hills.

The Hills focused on the reality TV star’s personal and professional life while she attended the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles. During the show, she also held positions at Teen Vogue and Kelly Cutrone’s PR firm People’s Revolution with friend Whitney Port. Thanks to the infamous fights with her former roommate Heidi Montag and Montag’s boyfriend Spencer Pratt and the whole world wishing that Conrad and longtime friend Brody Jenner would become a celebrity couple, The Hills became a phenomenon that no one wanted to end. Bosworth, Cavallari, and newcomer Audrina Patridge were also staples on the show, which lasted for six seasons (although Conrad only appeared in the first four seasons).

As fans know, the now-author had an on-and-off relationship and love with Colletti during her high school years. She later dated bad boy Jason Wahler, even choosing a summer with him over an internship with Teen Vogue in Paris. In 2008, she stepped out with actor Kyle Howard, although their celebrity relationship was never filmed for The Hills. After three years together, the couple ended their relationship in 2011. In February 2012, the Paper Crown designer began dating William Tell, a law student and former guitarist for Something Corporate. The pair moved in together a year later and announced their celebrity engagement in September 2013. They got hitched on September 13, 2014 in a vintage-inspired ceremony in California.
