Just call it Lauren Conradpalooza!

The Hills' main lady is quickly becoming television's new It girl.

First up, the Emmy folks officially announced today what I first told ya about days ago: Ms. Conrad is designing a dress to be worn by the leggy women who will be handing out the Emmy statuettes on the big night.

"I am so excited for this opportunity," Conrad tells me exclusively. "I have so many great ideas, and I can't wait for the dress to be revealed on Emmy night."

The awards will be handed out on Sept. 21 and be broadcast live on ABC from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

And there's even more Conrad boob-tube news...

Conrad will play herself in the season finale of the ABC Family dramedy series Greek on Aug. 26, a rep for the show confirms. Conrad will appear in a dream sequence in which Spencer Grammer's character, Casey, asks her advice on a big decision she has to make, according to

Meanwhile, Conrad is being hailed by a young leukemia patient for her generosity at the Teen Choice Awards. Conrad met 13-year-old Pat Pedraja at the Do Something Awards the night before Teen Choice when she presented him with a $10,000 check for his work recruiting bone-marrow donors.

Conrad surprised Pedraja the next day when she not only dedicated her Teen Choice Award to him, but also gave him her surfboard along with an iPod Touch loaded with all her favorite music.

"Lauren didn't have to tell me that I was amazing," Pedraja writes in a post on the Do Something website. "She didn't have to go out of her way to give me a present and she'd have to dedicate her award to me, but SHE DID!"

Pedraja went on, "I want to tell everyone that Lauren Conrad is an exceptional person, more than a reality TV star or fashion designer, but a person that I am proud to look up to."
