It's one thing to be young and beautiful in Laguna Beach. It's another to be young and beautiful in the city that values it most. The Hills follows Lauren ("LC" from Laguna Beach) as she makes the move from her O.C. digs to Los Angeles, where she will chase her dreams of entering the fashion business with her internship at Teen Vogue, while balancing a full course load at college and an even fuller social calendar. Through Lauren we meet her new roommate who aspires to make the LA nightlife her whole life (Heidi), the sorority girl who aspires to work in fashion (Whitney) and a receptionist who wants to be a model/actress (Audrina). These four girls take full advantage of being in the LA "in" crowd, hopping from club, to party, to hot restaurant as they live the Hollywood lifestyle to the full. But will Lauren be able to handle it all when there are so many things pulling her in so many directions?
