Fashion designer, television personality and author, the American Lauren Katherine Conrad – more commonly known simply as Lauren Conrad – has definitely enjoyed quite the career so far, and she’s got an estimated net worth of $25 million to show for it. A celebrity from a young age, Lauren Conrad first appeared as the star of the MTV reality series “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County” – and she has continued to feature in reality television since. Conrad’s success earned her a separate series focused initially and primarily on her career, titled “The Hills”. In addition to reality television, Lauren Conrad is also a designer and an author, launching several successful fashion lines and publishing the bestselling novel “L.A. Candy” in 2009 – all factors that have contributed to helping Conrad build up her impressive net worth.
Lauren Conrad Net Worth $25 Million
Born on 1 February 1986 in the resort city of Laguna Beach in California, USA, Lauren Conrad was the oldest of three children born to her parents – Jim and Kathy Conrad, both architects. Lauren’s youngest sister, Breanna Conrad, is also – much like Lauren herself – a notable television personality and reality TV star. As for Lauren, the television celebrity and fashion industry authority seems to have been set on her path from her very youth – as far back as sixth grade, Lauren’s father recalls she hadn’t been interested in much else at school beyond art and fashion design. Lauren Conrad had her first chance to show herself to the world when she was cast as the narrator of the new MTV reality series “Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County”. Only 18 years old at that point, Lauren’s star soon rose to huge heights – marking her as one of the world’s first reality television celebrities. Such an early start to her career certainly helped Lauren Conrad’s net worth, too, and it wasn’t long before Lauren could afford to move to Los Angeles.
Fame seemed to follow Lauren Conrad wherever she went. Not long after Lauren had moved to Los Angeles, her celebrity status generated a new reality television series – “The Hills” – focused mainly around her life in the city, and her journey on the way to becoming a recognized fashion designer. Appearing alongside Heidi Montag, Audrina Patridge and Whitney Port, Lauren Conrad remained at the centre of the show throughout its first five seasons – and while she would depart afterwards to pursue different career opportunities, Lauren had by that point already become the second-best paid reality television star after Kim Kardashian. Since leaving “The Hills”, Conrad has gone on to focus on writing and fashion design – releasing three novels, including the 2009 best-seller “L.A. Candy” and launching a number of fashion lines.
How rich is Lauren Conrad? At the moment, Conrad’s net worth is believed to reach up to $25 million. Lauren has built up her impressive wealth by successfully navigating several careers, being one of the world’s best paid reality television stars and having recently established herself as a major figure in the fashion industry. Some of Lauren Conrad’s most famous fashion labels include “Paper Crown” and “The Beauty Department”.
Today, Lauren Conrad lives in Los Angeles, California, leading the lifestyle to reflect her fame and success – owning two houses, each valued at over a million dollars. Recently, Conrad has announced her engagement to the musician and law student William Tell, and the couple is set to get married sometime in the autumn of 2014.
