Lydia Hearst

It is hard to pinpoint the exact moment that I wanted to work in entertainment and fashion, but it is something I remember always having my heart set on. The fashion industry is fickle and fast-paced – Trends and faces change every season – though, I have always loved the creative process. For someone who is only 5’7″ (give or take an inch), shy and unique looking, becoming a true model was no small feat. But, as fate would have it, I became one of the lucky ones. I was discovered by Steven Meisel and given my first VOGUE cover in Italy, March 2004, and shortly there after my first campaign, Prada FW2004. I had no idea what being a model even entailed - even though I knew that it was what I wanted to do and a part of who I was destined to become. Showing up at Milk Studios in Chelsea Piers surrounded by models like Karen Elson, Elise Crombez, Gemma Ward, Jessica Stam and Raquel Zimmerman was SO intimidating. These were the beautiful women who I looked up to and admired as I poured through my monthly fashion magazines… Then suddenly, there they were in the flesh. These women were shooting a campaign for one of the greatest fashion houses in the world and there I was, among them. This moment was a dream come true! And yet, it was only just the beginning…

From my experience, I can honestly say that one should never give up on their dreams. Instead of going through life saying “I want” or “I hope” say “I WILL”! It is important to always believe in yourself and chase your dreams. I did, and I still do.

Close Up – The Possibilities in Life…

Monday, December 8, 2014

   Every moment happening now makes up the present – right here and right now in your life doesn’t have to be enmeshed with your past. It’s entirely possible to start anew! Who hasn’t been hesitant at one time or another to “start over” and begin again with a new project, goal or relationship due to whatever occurred in the past? I know I have been before. The past is the past… That’s where it should stay. This moment here and now is entirely different and new, which gives you the choice to go in any direction you want.
   It’s unfortunate that for so many life and love can be dictated by fear. No one might ever fully understand what it truly is that makes you, you… But the way I see it, is that even if I end up crying I can’t help but remain hopeful and open myself up to the possibilities. Experiences and relationships are paramount - My relationships with people are what motivate and inspire me in my life. There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. Why not embrace each moment?! Life isn’t meant to be lived in comfort-zones… Take chances and don’t be afraid of the results - If you don’t challenge yourself you may never truly know yourself or grow. “Playing it safe” really just means that you’re going to miss out on a lot.
   A way to bridge a relationship with friends, family and those you love (including yourself!!) is to be honest with the heart and not just face literal truths. In life, there will always be risks that cause vulnerability and can sometimes lead to pain… BUT, sometimes the most cataclysmic changes in life come from pain. It’s important to remember that life is composed of moments – You have to take those moments as they come… Impulsively.

Lydia Hearst Operation Smile

The style icon and supermodel is transitioning into being an actress, with several features (and a new television series, South of Hell on WEtv airing spring/summer 2015) on the go – but also finds the time to support Operation Smile, a charity that provides free surgery to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities in children around the globe.

Could you tell us about your commitment to Operation Smile?  
Working with Operation Smile has been a completely life-altering experience. It’s an organization I am truly passionate about and grateful to be a part of. I first became involved nearly ten years ago when I volunteered to help stuff envelopes for the Smile Gala. I have since been on a few volunteer missions with Operation Smile, and am working on arranging another one in the coming months.

How does your contribution to Operation Smile work in practice?
  I am always trying to help raise awareness for Operation Smile by speaking, writing and tweeting about the organization. Also, I have tried to raise awareness about how individuals can make a difference while they shop, through – I think it is brilliant that Amazon has created an automatic way to donate each and every time you shop, and at no cost to the spender!

Can you tell us what it is like to go on a volunteer mission with Operation Smile?
  I have been to Egypt and Peru. It is incredible and truly inspiring to be part of something with so many unique individuals who come together for the greater good of helping others and saving lives, one smile at a time. I never knew my heart could hold so much love before joining Operation Smile and spending so much time with these wonderful, beautiful children and families.

On your website you speak about the need for hands-on charity work?
  I love working with children and to volunteer with the medical teams, and do all that I can to be involved with Operation Smile. Each and every one of us has the ability to bring hope and give smiles.

The most cataclysmic changes in life come from pain. Most people are not fortunate enough to find their path to enlightenment,  but one should always stay hopeful and motivated. It is considered wise to know and understand others, but true enlightenment to know ones self… You can choose your path in life as you can choose to be happy each day when you wake – There will always be stress in life, but it’s your choice whether you let it affect you or not.
