Laguna Beach/The Hills star Lauren Conrad is definitely aware that Allure magazine thinks she’s a “basic b*tch.”;

After the magazine came out with a humorous feature called “Typecasting,”; which for example labeled Vanessa Hudgens as the “Bohemian Hippie,”; LC took to Twitter to point out her “Basic”; label.

The term “basic b*tch”; has been written about and parodied on the Internet by everyone from College Humor to New York Magazine“s The Cut, which defines a “basic bi*tch”; as “a terminally boring Sex and the City viewer and consumer of pumpkin-spice lattes.”;

Or as Urban Dictionary likes to call it, “one who has no personality; dull and irrelevant”; and “just an extra regular female.”;

“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,”; Allure wrote beneath a picture of LC.


Luckily, LC had a sense of humour about the feature, which described the hairstyle of the “Basic”; woman as a “blowout or sausage curls.”;

Interestingly enough, LC has landed the cover of Allure magazine multiple times.

… So does that make Allure the “basic bi*tch”; of magazines?
