Lauren Conrad Spring 2009 - crowds wait!

(L) crowds waiting - Spring 2009
(R) easy access - Fall 2008

Last season at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Smashbox Studios, I had no idea who Lauren Conrad was when she came a few inches pass me in the arrival area. I joined the rest of the photographers in snapping her picture (photo R). Now months later, Lauren Conrad, The Hills, has become a household name, hence my photo on the left showing the crowd waiting to view her Spring 2009 Collection, October 14th at 7:00pm. Not only did the crowd wait in the arrival area, the line snaked down the street and around the bend.

Steven Cojocaru, Entertainment Tonight, Style Correspondent, stated to Hint TV, that he came to interview Conrad while I could not resist taking a photo of Cojo's bag as I listened to the interview. Fabulous bag, right! The "Conrad Wait" made for press coverage from fellow bloggers: Racked LA; LA Weekly and The Cut. (related links below) It's a wrap, V.
