Whitney Eve Port (born March 4, 1985) is an American television show personality. She is most famous for her former role on the MTV reality television series The Hills and later, as the star of her own show, The City. She is a former fashion contributor for Teen Vogue and now works for Diane von Fürstenberg.

Early life

Port was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. She is the daughter of Jeffery and Vicki Lyn Port. She is the third youngest of five brothers and sisters. Her father, Jeff, is the owner of a fashion company called Swarm.

Port attended Warner Avenue Elementary School. She then went to Crossroads School for the Arts and Sciences for middle school and high school. In 2007, Port graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) with a degree in gender studies, where she roomed with Christina Schuller, former Laguna Beach cast member and friend of Lauren Conrad and also dated Tommy Jones III.

Fashion career

Before working at Teen Vogue, Port was an intern for the Women's Wear Daily magazine for two summers. She also interned at W magazine for three summers. From 2005–2007, Port was an intern with Conrad. The final episode of season two showed Port interviewing at Vogue headquarters in New York for the position of "Fashion Contributor" at Teen Vogue. The episode dramatized the competition between Port and another young woman, Emily Weiss, who had previously appeared in season two as an intern visiting from New York. It was revealed in the season three premiere that Port was awarded the job, and was employed by Teen Vogue in Los Angeles.

Port left Teen Vogue in 2007 for People's Revolution, a PR firm heavily involved in the fashion world. Owned by Kelly Cutrone, People's Revolution has offices in New York, Los Angeles and Paris. Conrad was seen in season 3 episode 24 of The Hills assisting Port at Los Angeles Fashion Week, and at the end of the episode was offered, and accepted, a position at People's Revolution alongside Port. In 2008, Port was awarded an interview with fashion label Diane von Furstenberg for her efforts in People's Revolution. She was accepted for the job and has moved to New York. Her job with Diane von Furstenberg was featured extensively on her new reality show The City. It was announced on April 13, 2009 that Whitney had quit Diane von Furstenberg and returned to People's Revolution.

In episode six of the first season, Port had her first experience as a runway model. She walked in a DKNY Jeans show at Los Angeles Fashion Week.

Port again plays the role of model in episode eleven, when she appears on a Good Morning America segment with André Leon Talley the editor-at-large of Vogue magazine. When modeling Hilary Swank's dress from the 2005 Academy Awards, Port tripped during the live televised segment, but composed herself after the slip. Lisa Love, a Teen Vogue editor and Port's supervisor, praised her for handling the incident with class and grace under fire. She has also been featured in magazine covers like Teen Vogue, Rolling Stone, Seventeen and Cosmopolitan.

Clothing line

In March 2008, Port debuted her clothing line of cocktail and partywear called Whitney Eve. The clothing line will be in the New York Fashion Week in September 2009, for the Spring/Summer 2010 season.

Television career

2006-2008: The Hills

Port has been featured on The Hills. For the most part she appears in the context of her internship at Teen Vogue. Port has said specifically in two episodes of the MTV Canada Aftershow that she prefers to leave her personal life, including her year-long relationship, unaired.

At the end of The Hills season one, Teen Vogue offered Conrad the opportunity to spend the summer of 2006 working in Paris, France. When Conrad chose not to take the job, Port went to Paris in her place. On the second season of The Hills, Port appeared somewhat more frequently outside the workplace setting. In episode five, Conrad visited Port at her parents' home where she was recuperating from surgery after having her wisdom teeth removed. In another episode, Conrad and Patridge attended Whitney's softball game.

Episode eight of season two featured Port's younger sister Jade as a model in a Teen Vogue fashion photoshoot. In season three of The Hills, Port dated new men, and dealt with Conrad's drama. She soon stepped out on her two feet and left Teen Vogue, to People's Revolution, soon Conrad was offered her same job title and now they once again work together.

Port also appeared on a 2008 episode of the HBO series Entourage as herself. From mid-2009 Whitney will be doing shows for Global Radio's Hit Music Network and Bauer Radio.

2009-present: The City

After months of speculation, it was confirmed that Port would receive her own spin-off from The Hills entitled The City. The series centres around Port as she moves to New York to work for fashion designer Diane von Fürstenberg. The series debuted December 29, 2008 on MTV and first season finale aired on March 16, 2009. MTV has announced that it has renewed The City for a second season premiering September 29, 2009.

Personal life

As of 2007, Port's parents, her brother, Ryan, her sisters, Paige, Jade and Ashley, also live in Los Angeles, California.

Port, who is by her own admission not as comfortable with the spotlight as her other costars, explained her decision not to move in with Lauren Conrad and Audrina Patridge in season three of The Hills: "I prefer to keep some things private." Nonetheless, she eventually allowed MTV to produce a spin off from The Hills, her own show titled The City.

On The City, Port dated Australian musician, Jay Lyon. Towards the finale of the season, Port and Lyon ended their relationship. However, on the After Show, Whitney has stated that she still "loves" Jay.

Although Port relocated to New York to work for Diane Von Furstenburg, it has been revealed that following the season finale of The City Port has returned to former employer Kelly Cutrone to work once again with People's Revolution.
