Lydia Hearst (born September 19, 1984) is an American actress, fashion model, lifestyle blogger, and heiress to the publishing fortune established by her maternal great-grandfather, William Randolph Hearst, and mother, Patricia Campbell Hearst. Though her birth name is Lydia Marie Hearst-Shaw, she is known publicly and professionally as Lydia Hearst.
Hearst was born in Wilton, Connecticut, to Patty Hearst and Bernard Shaw. After graduating from Wilton High School, she enrolled in Sacred Heart University where she majored in Communications and Technology until being discovered by fashion photographer Steven Meisel in 2003.
Magazines and fashion shows
Always inspired by fashion, photography and the arts she was discovered by famed photographer Stephen Meisel who shot her first magazine cover for Vogue Italia in April 2004. Hearst has covered fashion magazines in Italy, France, Korea, Japan, Latin America, and the United States. She has worked with photographers worldwide including Steven Meisel, Patrick DeMarchelier, Ellen Von Unwerth, Mario Testino, Paulo Roversi, Inez van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Bettina Rheims, Mark Abrams, and Peter Lindbergh.
At the 2008 Michael Awards, Lydia was recognized as "Model of the Year", as well as acknowledged and given the award for Best International Supermodel at the Madrid Glamour Awards on November 12.
She has modelled on the international runway circuit and at many fashion shows on behalf of Chanel, Fendi, Rebecca Taylor, Catherine Malandrino, Twinkle, Nicole Miller, Three As Four, and Jeremy Scott.
Hearst has appeared in advertising campaigns for Prada, Louis Vuitton, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Sephora, L'Oreal Ferria, DKNY, MYLA Lingerie, H&M, NARS Cosmetics, MAC Cosmetics, Miss Me Jeans, Moschino Cheap & Chic. In 2007, Hearst appeared in Puma's French 77, which led her to design a line of handbags for the collection.
In Spring of 2012, Swarovski launched its Heart Truth campaign naming Hearst as its ambassador. This campaign was a national awareness campaign that aimed to empower women to improve their heart health and sponsored by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
She has since launched a lifestyle/fashion blog where she regularly posts.
