Lauren Conrad Fired From Teen Vogue?
While Teen Vogue's editor-in-chief Amy Astley has tried to undermine the rumours that Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port were asked to leave the Teen Vogue office (and if Lauren's first interview was anything to go by, we're surprised she even got that far), Amy's found it difficult to undo a series of catty revelations that Teen Vogue editor Lisa Love made recently with respect to the pair.
While Lisa reportedly never watched The Hills, she nonetheless indicated that she thought the two's constant partying had not made them good role models for Teen Vogue readers. She said:
"I think that's really why Teen Vogue had had their moment with them - it went into another zone. They were great interns in the beginning...and then it's time for interns to go some place else, right?"
More cuttingly, she appeared unwilling to call Lauren's fashion line "designs", stating: "I think it's more T-shirt kind of things and jeans, very simple basics."
What is more amusing than the nasty narking (which undoubtedly went straight through the vacuous space in Lauren's head) is to imagine that hard-faced oldie Lisa has her finger on any kind of teen pulse. Clearly Lisa believes Oscar frocks are more suitable for LA teens than t-shirts and jeans - and given the credit card limits on most of these kids, maybe she's right.
But as for the partying, we'd like to see her counter-proposition for Teen Vogue readers. If the magazines are anything to go by, even pregnancies and rehab are becoming acceptable for the everyday American teen. They might even be downright fashionable. So what's the story?
