“I have always loved the simple lines of a slipdress,” television personality, designer and author Lauren Conrad told WWD as she described the gown she designed and will be wearing on the red carpet at Monday’s CFDA Awards. “I thought it would strike the perfect balance of elegance for the red carpet and the chic effortlessness of my California roots.”
The gown is a “sneak preview” of a dress that Kohl’s will present in its fall 2016 LC Lauren Conrad Runway Collection, which has been selling at the retailer exclusively since last fall. The Kohl’s dress and Lauren’s red carpet version look the same though the fabrications are slightly different. Conrad will be attending the CFDA awards with Kohl’s Michelle Gass, chief merchandise and customer officer.
