Fashion Flashback: The Girls of the Hills

The Hills on MTV was my guilty pleasure reality tv show and recently I caught a mini marathon of it and I forgot how much I loved to see what the girls wore. Both Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port while on the show worked for Teen Vogue and now have gone on to launch their own clothing collections. But each of the girls, Lauren, Whitney, Heidi Montag and Audrina Patridge, has their own unique, Southern California style.

Lauren Conrad has one of my favorite styles and always looked fantastic on the show. She is the epitome of California girl with her blonde hair beach waves and blue-green eyes. Her skin is a beautiful, golden complexion which she never overwhelms with makeup. She is known for a precise, liquid eyeliner, neutral makeup and low-key hair. Her fashion choices mix trends with traditional pieces and on the show, she had a Chanel chain strap bag that I continue to envy!

Whitney Port branched out to become more eclectic with her style. Her fashion choices began very girly in lots of pastels and lighter colors with a bohemian vibe. Later when she started her spinoff, The City, she started wearing more structured pieces and added embellishments, but still with a laid-back flair. Her ability to mix and match was similar to that of the early days of Carrie Bradshaw and her multi-colored and multi-patterned wardrobe.

Before turning into “Speidi,” Heidi Montag had a very natural look and attitude. Compared to LC and Whitney, her look was less fashion-focused, but still very trend heavy, meaning she wore what was "in" at the moment, but nothing that was a signature to her. Her tiny frame could wear more revealing pieces without looking too risque. Her shorter haircut and fair features made her look younger than the other girls, but that also helped her stand apart. Unfortunately, after her plastic surgery overload, her good looks were never quite the same.

As for Audrina, she was more into the punk rock vibe with skinny jeans and motorcycle jackets. In the early days, she rarely wore any dresses, but as time went on and she became a spokesperson for different brands, she began wearing more feminine fashion. She kept to darker colors and simple fabrics, but incorporated her original "tougher" look into her wardrobe.

It's fun seeing fashion flashbacks even if it is in the form of reality tv because it's always interesting to see how people's look evolve.
