Day in the life of Lydia Hearst


Lydia Hearst-Shaw is an American fashion model and actress, who is also the heiress to the publishing fortune, made by her maternal great-grandfather. Despite her life advantages, Hearst made an effort to make her own fortune, earning the title of 'model of the year' in 2008, working for numerous fashion houses.


Always inspired by fashion, photography and the arts she was discovered by famed photographer Steven Meisel who shot her first magazine cover for Vogue Italia in April 2004. She has worked with the greatest photographers in the world including Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Patrick DeMarchelier, Ellen von Unwerth, Mario Testino, Paulo Roversi, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Bettina Rheims, Mark Abrams, Peter Lindbergh and Terry Richardson. Her 5'7" stature and doll like face has made her the perfect match for various fashion and beauty magazines and companies. She has conquered the fashion industry and achieved familiarity and iconic status around the world with her hypnotic, emerald gaze and incomparable physic. Her look may perhaps be described as unique and exotic with sharp, angular features that agencies clamour for. Since stepping into the limelight a few years ago, she has set runways, editorials, magazine covers and advertisements ablaze with a sophisticated, doll-like style and a dedicated no-nonsense attitude.
