Lauren Conrad Covers Allure May 2011
Lauren Conrad is the May 2011 cover girl for ‘Allure’, celebrating the magazine’s first iPad issue.Inside she talks about the way she sees herself, but also about body issues and plastic surgeries.
Lauren the 25-year-old beauty says she doesn’t see herself as being a sexy girl. “I’m not a sexy person. I’m OK with it,” she told ‘Allure’. “I’ve never been the sexy girl. Whenever I’ve had a boyfriend, he’s always been like, ‘Oh, you’re cute.’”Besides, the reality-show babe also says that fans of ‘The Hills’ who had the opportunity to meet her told her that she is “different” than they thought she would be and looks “better” and “younger” in person. “I’m still deciding if that’s a nice thing to say. Is that like, ‘You don’t look great on TV?’”
She admits that, “I was 17 when I signed on [to Laguna Beach], and that’s a vulnerable age anyway. I was still figuring out who I was. To be on television and told a million things that are wrong with you was hard, but I very quickly decided that I just had to be me. I watched people change everything about themselves, and they still weren’t happy.”
Then, “The Hills” came, a reality series that managed to become a real phenomenon. On being called ‘Reality Show Talent’, Lauren told ‘Allure’ that, “They called me that, and I’m like, ‘What’s my talent?’”.
From the reality-show star , she quickly reached as designer.”It wasn’t ‘Lauren Debuts Her Line’; it was ‘Lauren Debuts a Fuller Figure,’ and I was like, ‘Oh, no!’ because I’d put on a few pounds…. If I’m shopping and I see paparazzi, my bag goes directly to my thighs.”
Still, Lauren reveals she never wanted to be very thin, nor felt the need of doing plastic surgeries just like her former costar and roommate Heidi Montag . “I saw ‘People’ magazine just like everybody else,” Conrad said. “I don’t think this is a happy story at all. There’s just no right answer there,” she says.
