MTV reality star and fashion designer Lauren Conrad went topless for the May cover of Glamour.

Ironically, in the accompanying story within the magazine, E! Online reports that Conrad discusses once being "petrified" to be seen in a bathing suit ever since a photographer once "zoomed in on her cellulite."
