One-time Hills star Lauren Conrad knows her reputation, and she gives literally no effs about it. Seriously. In 2014, the fashion designer/blogger was called out by Allure for embodying "basic," something that the magazine described as being "remarkably unremarkable." At the time, Lauren was pissed about it - and understandably so. Now? Not so much. She's got bigger things to worry about.
Here's the original post from Allure that first called Lauren out on her "basicness." Starbucks-obsessed exterior. (Feel free to call me a basic bitch, but who doesn't appreciate the versatility of a great pair of skinnies and the refreshing taste of a peach green tea lemonade? You're kind of cray to hate those things. Just sayin'.)
So what's Lauren saying about being basic now? It turns out, she's totally owning it. Here's what Lauren had to say to Cosmopolitan (a magazine that clearly respects the mogul as more than just some so-called basic chick) about her rep:
You go, girl: happiness is the best revenge.
I probably am pretty basic. But I'm also a pretty happy person, so that's OK with me.
