LC -- Officially Worthless

8/13/2008 6:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lauren Conrad is a free woman.

We've learned that Kitson -- the boutique that was just trying to do a buy-one-get-one deal for LC's clothing line -- has finally just thrown up its hands and is giving away the rest of its Lauren overstock. At least they've found a reasonable destination: They're giving away her collection to Caitlin's Closet, a charity that gives girls dresses for their big events, like the prom and homecoming.

Gives new meaning to that old saw, "Off like a prom dress," doesn't it?

I bought a dress at Kitson and it had sweat stains on it! The sales clerk admitted that the store allows celebrities to wear the clothes for a week at a time and return them but they forgot to get it dry cleaned before putting it back on the rack! GROSS!!!! And the dress was over $1,000, just letting ya know!

I am sure their is major jealousy in the case that Heidi Montag's clothing line Heidiwear is selling with Anchor Blue and even her face is plastered on the windows of every store, and
Lauren Conrad can't even find a retailer. I am routing for LC anyway because she is a better
person and not as snobby as Heidi Montag, but for all the Heidi defenders, I am not saying
Heidi is evil I just think Lauren is better, but not perfect, no one is.

Go LC!

Janine...............are you for real....Nicole Kidman didn't drop her adopted kids......That controlling and dominating ex-husband of hers controls their lives and it was his doing keeping the kids from her. Makes him look good.

is it just me, or does kitson seem sorta desperate for media attention?
if lc's designs are being picked up by bloomingdales, a major fashion chain, then how bad can her sells really be?
and her lone sold out when it was online.......hmmmmmm.....

sounds to me like kitson is pissed that lc didnt do an in store appearance......

Response to Janine #10 who writes :"I'd say Nicole Kidman is more worthless, she dumps her adopted children for Keith Urban. What kind of monster is this?"

Janine, first of all what kind of connection is there between Nicole Kidman's children and Lauren Conrad crappy clothing being donated to charity by the store that can not sell it?
And the more important thing. Nicole Kidman definitely did not abandon her adopted children when Tom Cruise ruthlessly divorced her. Nicole adores her 2 children. These 2 children live with Tom Cruise and his new wife in his mansion/compound in LA and they are being raised in a strict Faith of Scientology because this is the way Tom Cruise wants it and Nicole is pretty much helpless to do much about it for the sake of these children's well-being. They are not free to spend as much time with her as she wishes, and it breaks her heart. Fortunately her new-born baby can not be taken away from her and will be raised with love by normal sane mother and father.
Please read "Tom Cruise : The Unauthorized Biography " by Andrew Morton if you want to know the truth.

Apparently TMZ hasn't Seen ET, Because ..its been ALLL over TV . big news for Lauren right now is that for the first time in Emmy history, a celebrity designer has been asked to create a gown for the women who hand out the Emmy statuettes -- and she is that designer.. THAT WOULD BE THE EMMYS

A) Who cares about Nicole Kidman???!?!? Or crazy Tom for that matter...

B) LC -vs- Heidi????????????????????????? Not even close. Heidi is a media whore. She has nothing to offer musically, fashion or otherwise!!!!!

C) LC has an amazing line of clothes, from what I can see here. Plus Bloomingdale's!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Well seems MUCH better to me than some LA b.s.

D) GO LC!!! You have class and style beyond your years........ I think honestly- that people forget that you are 21 or 22 years old!

seriously    

Kitson is a joke. Why is Bloomingdale's (an actual reputable store) still selling her clothes if no one wants them? TMZ on Speidi's "payroll" now too?

Max Stubblefield, Lauren's manager from United Talent Agency hasn't figured out who LC's fans are... Does he not understand the importance of her fans, if you ask me she needs a new management team A.S.A.P.!!!!

Tired of Paula's Antics    

Awww, Lauren's a sweet girl so I feel bad for her that people are enjoying seeing her fail. If she could make a serious go of fashion-designing she'd probably love to ditch the mtv gig.

I think the problem with her line is that her fanbase can't afford what she's charging, the clothes are more high-fashion than casual, and they're not flattering colors and cuts for most people/body-types. Especially those billowy sleeves. If she's hoping to make it long-term, maybe it would be smarter for her to capitalize on her fame to establish a loyal clientele now by designing cuter teen/young-adult clothes and then evolve to more mature styles as her base evolves. A savvy businessperson always caters to their clientele!

Nice try Kitson. Lauren's line is doing great without your trashy store. Kitson sounds very desperate for attention and is using Lauren's name to get it. Trashy store, trashy owner. Makes sense that they would carry Heidi's line. Lauren is happy to be out of that store. Bloomigdales was quoted as saying her line is selling well.

TMZ, you should do a little fact check before you call someone worthless. Lauren's line is doing great. Bloomingdales and Nordstrom now carry her collection and she is going international. Kitson is the one that's "worthless".
