The lovely Lauren Conrad was seen at the Redkens Real Control cocktail party at West Hollywood's Warren Tricomi Salon on Wednesday.
There, LC was asked about her clothing line, The Lauren Conrad Collection, which has been greeted with both criticism and praise since its release.
She said: "I would not be able to have the line if I didn't have [The Hills] first or I wouldn't be able to have it so soon, but because I was on a reality show, you don't get the respect that you want and ... I have done everything to deserve it as far as all the designing and everything that I would've done, reality show or not. Because I got the opportunity so much sooner, people are quick to criticize."
