Don't worry, Lauren Conrad, you're in good company.

The 28-year-old beauty took to Twitter on Monday to call out Allure magazine after the publication described the reality-star-turned-fashion designer as "basic" in a recent feature titled "Beauty and a Beat."

And while the term may not seem overly offensive at first glance considering Conrad is famous for her classic style, the mag elaborates and has some not-so-flattering things to say about the "basic" women of the world.

"Made famous by Kreayshawn, and viral by YouTube, the Basic woman is remarkably unremarkable. What's noteworthy about her style is its very plainness. Except to her. She swears those red soled shoes are cutting-edge," the article states, adding that "basic" girls are known for their "skinny jeans" and "blowout or sausage curls."

Ouch. And if you too found the term "sausage curls" a bit unbecoming, then consider yourself Team Conrad...

"I definitely just got called a basic b*tch! Haha! Sausage curls!? Really @Allure_magazine?" the engaged stunner posted on her social media page, tweeting a pic of the offensive article. 

To make matters worse, the former Hills star has covered Allure magazine on three different occasions, most recently gracing the April issue.

Allure has yet to respond to Conrad's tweet and has instead been posting about their August cover girl, Rachel McAdams.

But one thing's clear in the matter: don't ever call L.C. basic.
