Lauren Conrad Gets All Dolled-Up In Face Paint

Lauren Conrad attended the Alice and Olivia by Stacey Bendet shoe launch party in Los Angeles and opted for a totally new trend: face paint! The Paper Crown designer wore the cutest A+O dress that looked very Cali-late-summer with its bright bursts of color and lightweight flounce. But what about this FACE PAINT?! We're assuming the event space, Hollywood's ultra-hip Palihouse, was decked out with face-painting stations because LC doesn't appear to have arrived with a surrealist swirl upon her tanned temple. We're guessing that Miss C—who always seems game for a bit o' fun—agreed to go with it, maybe even trying it out herself before recommending to others in the primp section of her website.

We're curious if she co-designed this swirly face magic herself or if she even kept it on for the rest of the night. We know the author and Forbes columnist is all about keeping it classy, so is she trying to tell us to up our beauty regime and treat our faces as artistic canvases? Perhaps she'll give us a step-by-step tutorial on The Beauty Department blog or just start turning up at various parties with crazy patterns and dots all over her face to give us the courage to Picasso our own blank visages. We have a zillion questions about this face paint situation!!! Sigh, I guess we'll have to just keep rabidly following our favorite former Hills-ie's every move until we get some answers.
