Conrad, 25, showed off her long blonde locks — with light blue tips! — on the red carpet.

"I didn't think anyone would even notice!" she told reporters. "I felt like such a rebel."

Earlier this month, the fashionista polled fans on her site thebeautydepartment about colored tips "because I was obsessed." Once results gave her a resounding "yes," Conrad got the coloring done with her longtime stylist Kristin Ess.

Although pals told Us Weekly Conrad was "heartbroken" over her breakup with actor Howard, 33, she was chipper and upbeat at Tuesday's event — with plenty of projects to keep her busy. "I have my two clothing lines, LC Lauren Conrad and Paper Crown, and I just finished the manuscript for my second book series The Fame Game."
