Lauren Conrad's 7 Style Rules to Live By

Go Back To Black
Not sure what to wear to a fiesta? When in doubt, opt for a little black dress. "If you're going to be the belle of the ball at a party, I think a chic LBD is the way to go," the designer says. "It's simple and elegant, but still fun." And it can be easily accessorized with layers of necklaces.

(L) Go For Maxi-Mmum Effect
"Maxis have always been a style staple for me," Lauren says of these on-trend and surprisingly easy-to-wear skirts. She recommends pairing looser versions with a tucked-in or belted top, while body-con maxis look perfect with loose blouses and slouchy sweaters.
(R) Carry a Bold Bag
One of Lauren's favorite ways to add a pop of color to her look is with a bright statement accessory, like this bold turquoise bag she loves to sport.

(L) Knot It
Become a master bun artist, suggests the PEOPLE StyleWatch columnist, who loves to wear the polished do and credits it as a great quick-and-easy style that works well with just-out-of-bed hair. How to keep it from looking messy? "Be sure to have some dry shampoo around to absorb excess oil."
(R) Become a Ballerina
It's no surprise that the designer is frequently seen around Hollywood wearing ballet flats. After all, she considers the shoes "a fashion classic" and "the epitome of Parisian chic." Plus, they can easily be dressed up or down, making them the perfect day-to-night kicks.

(L) Look Cool In Camel
"I have fallen deeply, madly in love with camel clothing," reveals Lauren, who's into swapping out gray and black in favor of this luxe, golden-beige shade, especially during chilly months.
(R) Get Kissable With Cukes
LC swears by an unconventional beauty trick to keep her smile in tip-top shape: "One of the best ways to directly hydrate your pout is by pressing cold, sliced-up cucumber on your lips for a few minutes."

Olivia Palermo sat front row at the Rebecca Taylor Fall 2012 fashion show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at The Stage at Lincoln Center on February 10, 2012 in New York City.
It was a 'City' reunion of sorts - Olivia sat next to Louise Roe (that's Zoe Kravitz on the left.) I heard that Whit was going to attend the show as well but I haven't seen her in any photos yet.

Whitney Port's New Boyfriend Is 'The City's' Associate Producer Tim Rosenman!

By Zach Johnson
Her onscreen romances may have fizzled on The City, but Whitney Port was falling in love behind the scenes with associate producer Tim Rosenman, Us Weekly can exclusively report.
Though the MTV reality series ended abruptly in 2010, Port, 26, and Rosenman "kept in touch and have always had crushes on each other," a source explains. "Now they are full-blown together."
The two didn't begin dating until months after Port ended her longterm relationship with The Buried Life's Ben Nemtin, 29, in June 2011.
The source adds that Port and Rosenman -- who vacationed together in Miami on January 22 -- have become quite "serious."
"They have mutual friends from New York and L.A.," the source tells Us. "His sister works in fashion, too. They run in a similar crowd and seem to be really happy."

Olivia often gives fashion advice on her website, with her most recent tips being on how to correctly wear a kaftan.
She wrote: 'In my fantasy life, I lounge around my apartment wearing flowing chiffon kaftans, hair in loose, cascading waves.
'In reality, I very rarely have time to lounge, and my lounge wear consists of tissue tanks and leggings.
'Though come to think of it, my hair is very often in loose waves. Only after spending an exorbitant amount of time getting it that way every morning. That being said, I adore kaftans.'
