Lauren Scruggs is the founder and editor of LOLO Magazine, an online lifestyle hub that unites all things fashion, beauty, and health. Lauren was born in Redondo Beach and raised in Dallas, so you can call her a California girl whose roots are deep in the heart of Texas. Her love for fashion has been tightly sewn through her internship experience in the wardrobe department for CW’s Gossip Girl, the Michael Kors showroom in New York City, and reporting for the New York, Paris, and Montreal Fashion Weeks. In February of 2013, Lauren covered the New York Fashion Week as the fashion correspondent for E! News. In addition, she is a regular Style Squad reporter on The Broadcast in Dallas and is currently collaborating with Outline the Sky in creating a “LOLO” T-shirt line. Lauren emcees specific fundraising events for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital and Children’s Hospital and enjoys hosting fashion events at Neiman Marcus and other stores.
Outside of fashion, her first book, Still LoLo, was published in 2012, and her second book is releasing in March 2015. Along with Bethany Hamilton, Lauren started a yearly retreat for girls who have lost a limb to create a community and encourage others on their journey. After discovering that insurance companies view prostheses as a luxury instead of a necessity, Lauren is in the process of starting a foundation with the intent to provide beautiful prostheses for many people in need.
