Lauren Conrad, Then
Back in 2006, L.C. and Heidi — new friends and students at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising — had just moved into their first L.A. apartment together and unknowingly changed the course of television history. The apartment at the “Villas” would go on to set the stage for some of the most memorable scenes of the series, and is also where castmate (and neighbor) Audrina Patridge was discovered.
You can still rent a two-bedroom apartment in the complex. Amenities include granite countertops and a balcony. You’ll have to supply your own drama and decor.
Whitney Port, Then
In 2008, with the success of The Hills raging on, L.C.’s beloved confidante and fellow Teen Vogue intern moved to New York City, and to the delight of all, got her very own East Coast-focused spinoff series. The City centered on Port’s blossoming career in fashion and featured an insanely hip Gramercy Park apartment where she undoubtedly lost lots of sleep over Jay Lyon and Kelly Cutrone, respectively.
Want to relive Whitney’s early-aughts dreams? You can rent a one-bedroom with a balcony in the same building for a cool $5,000 a month. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure a starting salary in fashion won’t quite cover that rent.
