Here’s some advice for everyone — don’t ever call Lauren Conrad “basic.”
Conrad, the April 2014 cover girl of Allure, called out the magazine on Twitter after it labeled her as “basic” in its August issue.
The article, titled “Beauty & the Beat,” featured celebrities who are known for their “typecast” styles.
“Made famous by Kreayshawn and viral by YouTube, the Basic woman is remarkably unremarkable. What's noteworthy about her style is its very plainness. Except to her. She swears those red-soled shoes are cutting-edge,” the story said, according to People. The magazine also referred to Conrad’s hairstyle as a “blowout or sausage curls.”
The 28-year-old fashion designer and bride-to-be slammed the magazine for its less than complimentary description of her style. “I definitely just got called a basic b*tch! Haha! Sausage curls!? Really @Alluremagazine?” she tweeted.
Allure has not yet responded to Conrad’s tweet about its feature, reports E! Online.
