Lauren Pope: Some designers have TOWIE ban
Lauren Pope says there's "snobbery" amongst some fashion labels towards 'The Only Way Is Essex'.
The 32-year-old reality star claims some designers refuse to lend dresses to her purely because she is from the Essex-based series, and she finds their attitude "draining".
Opening up to Star magazine on what frustrates her, Lauren said: "I find snobbery draining. Certain companies won't lend dresses because you're from 'TOWIE'. I bet they watch the show anyway!"
Lauren keeps an eye on her style successes and failures by Googling her name to check how she looks at events.
She revealed: "(I do it) to see what I look like at events! I sometimes screengrab and Instagram my outfits. I don't let horrible stories bother me, though, I've got pretty thick skin."
Despite the dramas she has to deal with on 'TOWIE', Lauren insists she's currently the happiest she's ever been in her life and claims everything "fell into place" for her after she turned 30.
The fashionista said: "It sounds cheesy, but right now is the happiest time. My 30th birthday was a turning point for me. Before then, I was panicking that I wanted children and marriage, but then I stopped caring about what other people think and everything fell into place."
