Who knew that MTV's reality shows 'Laguna Beach' and 'The Hills' would launch a fashion and beauty career and catapult one of its stars into super-stardom, but as you can see in this gallery of amazing Lauren Conrad innovations, that's exactly what happened.
The 25 year-old former reality TV star is now a respected designer and author. In 2007, Conrad was granted an internship at Teen Vogue magazine, a role which was documented for the show 'The Hills,' which played a huge part in improving sales of the magazine. Soon after, she was named a spokesperson for beauty brand 'mark.'
These days, Lauren Conrad designs her own line, has written several successful books and has started a beauty blog called 'The Beauty Department.'
