Lauren Katherine Conrad was born on 1.February 1986 in the affluent town of Newport Beach, CA, the daughter of Katherine
Lawrence and James Conrad. She had a younger sister named Breanna, who was a featured regular on the third season of "Laguna Beach" (2006), and a younger brother named Brandon. Growing up, the future reality star's main passion was fashion design. A neighbor taught her how to draw and design outfits for her Barbie dolls. During Conrad's senior year of high school, MTV started production on "Laguna Beach," and followed her and several students with cameras for the show, documenting their relationships, break-ups, and high school high jinks.

In 2004, Conrad entered Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA where she met fellow "Hills" star Heidi Montag. After one semester at Academy of Art, Conrad moved back to Orange County before transferring to the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. While interning at Three Dots clothing company in 2005, she accepted an extraordinary opportunity to intern at fashion magazine giant Teen Vogue . The combination of her internship and move to Los Angeles was the central focus of "The Hills," a "Laguna Beach" spin-off series. Conrad was the star of the show, along with her roommate Montag and fellow Teen Vogue intern, Whitney Port. The authenticity of the girls' internship (as opposed to a setup just for the show) was confirmed by the magazine's West Coast Editor Lisa Love, saying Conrad had a successful interview before she got the job. Turning everything she touched to gold, Vogue 's readership actually increased due to Conrad's involvement, and in turn, she appeared on the magazine's June/July 2006 cover - the very first intern in the magazine's history to do so.
