Kristin Cavallari

Kristin Cavallari

Born in Denver, Colorado, the Rocky Mountains couldn’t have predicted what was in store for Kristin Cavallari when she headed west to live with her father and brother in Laguna Beach, CA. Cavallari was in her junior year of high school when the first season of Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County began production for MTV. With her whit, charisma and girl next-door looks, Cavallari was an instant TV sensation, winning over audiences across the nation. She was nominated for a Teen Choice Award in 2006 for “Choice Reality Star.” 

After wrapping two successful years on MTV’s hit show, Laguna Beach, Cavallari switched gears to focus on a career in acting. From 2006 – 2009 Kristin starred in numerous films like Van Wilder: Freshman Year (2009), Green Flash (2009), Spring Breakdown (2009), and Wild Cherry (2009), starring alongside Amy Poehler, Rumer Willis, and Rob Schneider. 

Still, Cavallari’s fun-loving attitude towards TV continued to shine, and was apparent when she landed a guest role on CBS’s hit show CSI: NY in 2008 and ABC’s The Middle. Other gigs under Cavallari’s belt include Veronica Mars, a lead role in Teddy Geiger’s “For You I Will (Confidence)” music video and Gavin Degraw’s video for his single, “In Love with a Girl.”

In May of 2009, Cavallari confirmed that she would be joining the cast of the mega-popular MTV reality series, The Hills. Already a smash hit, Kristin appeared in the mid-season finale before continuing on as the reality-drama’s new lead girl and narrator through the last two seasons. 

In 2010, Kristin joined the fight to aid underprivileged children around the globe, serving as an ambassador of the children’s charity One Kid One World. Cavallari traveled to El Salvador where she dedicated personal time towards rebuilding schools in local communities. Continuing her humanitarian efforts, Kristin made her way to Kenya in early 2011 for yet another extraordinary and successful project with One Kid One World. 

In early 2011, Kristin combined her passion for fashion and love for charity on a new passion project. She teamed up with Shoe Dazzle to design a spring shoe with proceeds benefiting One Kid One World. Her new spring shoe, named Bardot, became available for the first time in the spring of 2011. 

Cavallari joined the season 13 cast of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. With her strong wit, charm and loveable charisma, Kristin competed against the likes of David Arquette, Chaz Bono and Nancy Grace for the DWTS Season 13 trophy. The bombshell reality star received a standing ovation for her Samba performance with partner Mark Ballas, before she was undeservingly voted off the hit show in week 3. 

In August 2012, Kristin and husband, Chicago Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler, welcomed their first child together, son Camden Jack. That fall, Kristin debuted her highly anticipated new shoe collection, Kristin Cavallari by Chinese Laundry. The popular collection was designed hands-on by Cavallari and targets the fashion-conscious young woman on the go. Her latest fall collection is now available at, and 12 select Nordstrom locations. The new spring/summer 2015 collection debuted this September at New York Fashion Week. 

Kristin returned to television in the spring of 2014 as co-host of E!’s new hit series The Fabulist. On May 7, 2014 Kristin and husband Jay welcomed their second son, Jaxon Wyatt Cutler. 

In continuing to grow her fashion empire, Kristin has created a new jewelry line, Emerald Duv, which launched October 2nd at Planet Blue in Beverly Hills. The new line incorporates her love of the trendy boho look and embodies an everyday LA chic style. This collection of jewelry allows every girl to obtain her famous California-cool vibe.
