Life can take you in unexpected directions and places, but if you have the courage to pursue your dreams and stay true to yourself along the way, anything is possible. The essence of beauty is about being… You.
My name is Lydia Hearst.
I’m a supermodel, actress and humanitarian… But I’m not one to be summed up or categorized too easily.
I have always been drawn to the world of entertainment and self-expression. I dreamt of being an actress because I love the challenge and creative process of bringing a character to life on screen; perhaps that’s why I’ve been immensely successful in my modeling career. Modeling is like acting but in a silent film. I expose my innermost emotions so they project clearly into the lens and ultimately through the still photograph.
I was discovered by Steven Meisel and in the blink of an eye, I booked my first job: the cover of Vogue Italia! Over the course of my career I have won two international Supermodel Of The Year awards and my life has become a whirlwind of plane tickets, photoshoots, opportunities to work with some of the most legendary photographers (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) and designers (Prada, Louis Vuitton, MAC Cosmetics, H&M, Moschino Cheap&Chic, Lord & Taylor, DKNY, Sephora, Bottega Veneta, to name a few…). More than anything life is a journey of endless self discovery.
At the end of the day I hope to always make my family proud, help those in need and most importantly, just be… Me.
This is my blog on fashion, life and everything in between.

Love, Lydia Hearst
