I've got the LS fork (though my bike was built three years ago) and it says "Profile" on it in smaller print. Who knows if they change manufacturers between seasons, though.

Profile doesn't make anything. The Litespeed forks are made by Advanced Composites, the same people who make Profile (and many other companies) forks. If I were buying a Litespeed, I'd spend the extra $100 on a Reynolds Ouzo.
I guess dat 'splains it!jtolleson

My wife has a LS Tuscany that came with a painted Look fork thats says LS on the front of the blades and Look on the sides. Know what it is? Its not a HSC.

Depending on age, all post-HSC Look forks with steel steering tubes were made by Advanced Composites in Taiwan. They're decent quality, beefy carbon forks. Look always made their top-of-the-line in France, and subcontracted their lower end models to Taiwan.
