Katie's Take
  • Actress and fashion designer Lauren Conrad stopped by “Katie” to offer a primer on some of the hot hair and makeup trends of the season, including white eyeliner and messy side braids.

    Lauren has been called “the mini Martha Stewart” for good reason. She has her own clothing lines and a huge online following as a fashion blogger and on Twitter and Pinterest.

    Lauren demonstrated how to create a messy side braid, starting with a ponytail and a fishtail braid which is then gently pulled apart.

    “Lots of different variations are everywhere,” she said. “It’s really just the undone look. The messier you make it, the better.”

    A trend also seen on the runways was white eyeliner.

    “A subtle way to do it is just the waterline of your eye to make it pop,” said Lauren. “It’s more of a mod look. Another way is just as a highlight on the inner corners of your eyes. It’s a really easy day-to-night look, an easier take on the trend.”

    “My dad told me,” Cate said. “I was an adult so I obviously understood what was going on.”

    “Were you furious at your dad? Because honestly I was so mad, if I were you I would have been just enraged,” Katie said.

    “When he’s your dad it’s a different type of anger,” Cate explained.

    While there was anger, there was a lot of love too, and now Cate and her dad have a great relationship.

    Cate also went into detail regarding how she handled her mother’s illness and eventually her mother’s death. She was able to get through it with strength and support from friends, family

  • Sandra Oh – well known for her character Dr. Christina Yang on the hit show "Grey’s Anatomy" -- stopped by to talk with Katie about the series and what she will do after she leaves at the end of the 10th season.

    So why is Oh leaving Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital?

    “I felt like all the avenues that a character that could possibly be explored,” she said, “I feel like we have done that.”

    “Was that a tough decision to make?” Katie asked.

    “Yes, it was. It took me a couple of years to come to that decision.”

    Two years ago, Sandra started thinking about leaving "Grey’s Anatomy" when the show started renegotiating contracts.

    “[I thought] If the show is going to come to an end, I need to start thinking about letting it go.”

    But the hardest part will be saying goodbye to her friends and colleagues on the show.

    “Will you miss all those people?” said Katie, “I imagine you’ve become kind of a family.”
