Lauren Conrad and Derek Hough added fuel to the fire of dating rumors by partying together – very closely – in the back room at L.A.'s Trousdale Lounge. Though they were with friends – she had Lo Bosworth with her, and he was hanging out with Mark Ballas – they mostly spent time with each other. They even hit the dance floor, where Hough had his arm around Conrad's waist. "It was obvious there was a lot of chemistry between the two," an onlooker says. "She was very smitten." So smitten, in fact, that they shared some smooches. Says the onlooker: "Neither seemed embarrassed about kissing in public."
However appearing to be keeping the relationship under wraps Lauren was seen leaving the Nightclub with with Mark Ballas instead.
Lauren was dressed in a pair of tiny leather shorts and a mustard coloured sweater for the evening.
LC had her hair in an elegant oversized bun and wore a statement silver necklace and brown heels.
Thanks to The Budget Babe we have a sneak peek of Lauren Conrad's holiday collection for Kohls.
"Kohl's is already thinking ahead to the holidays, having just released its LC Lauren Conrad holiday 2011 lookbook. Luckily, it's all very wearable and there isn't any red and green in sight. Instead, you'll see a mix of feminine dresses, printed blouses, loose knits and lightweight sweaterdresses - great pieces to wear now with jeans and flats, then layered with tights and boots as the temperature drops. Unique back details and touches of lace give the collection a flirty, playful feel, while the mostly blush pink, mint green and cool gray color palette lend a modern, versatile touch. I like the dresses in this round-up, and would love to see LC add handbags and clutches to her collection."
Whitney Port recently presented her Whitney Eve Spring 2012 Collection in NAPA where she also took time out for an interview with FabSugar. Check it out below.
FabSugar: What inspired you to get involved with the National Breast Cancer Foundation?
Whitney Port: I have family members that have been affected by the disease, and I really want to stress the importance of early detection. It's so crucial to go out and get tested, because the earlier they find something, the better chances you have of survival.
FS: You've lived in NYC and Los Angeles — how do you differentiate East Coast vs. West Coast dressing?
WP: When I lived in New York, I was inspired to dress up a lot more, and look more sophisticated. But when I'm in LA, I prefer to keep things casual — most days when I go to the office I'm in cutoffs, a t-shirt, and Converse sneakers. I'm so relieved to not have to dress up for the camera anymore. It's fun to go out and do events and get dolled up, but most of the time I'm just at a bar with friends, totally dressed down.
FS: This is your first trip to Napa; what did you pack for your weekend in wine country?
WP: I didn't know if the wineries had dress codes or anything, so I had no idea what to bring! I ended up packing one pair of jeans, a couple of dresses, and a few t-shirts to mix and match.
FS: What pieces are you coveting for Fall? I feel like you might have a pretty solid shopping list.
WP: Actually, I'm going on a shopping strike! I just moved into a new place and organized my closet, and I realized that I really shouldn't buy anything else — I literally have stuff with tags still attached — so I'm just going to revamp my existing pieces for Fall. I really gravitated towards the menswear looks that were on the runways; I love a pantsuit, and I'm going to try kitten heels, too.
FS: Love your practicality! So when you do shop, what do you typically splurge on? Where do you prefer to save?
WP: I mostly splurge on bags and shoes, because I know I'll wear them forever. And honestly, I kind of try to save on everything! Since I've started designing I've realized just how much it costs to make clothes, and I have become pretty frugal when buying new things.
