The top 10 most beautiful women of NYC.


Number 2 on the list: Lydia Hearst -Shaw.

Lydia Hearst-Shaw…where to begin. Some people make comparisons to Lydia being akin to Paris Hilton, but the difference is, Lydia is in it for the fun, not for the fame. Additionally, topless or not, Lydia brings a sophistication to her modeling that Paris could never accomplish. With a reported 16″ waist, perfect model proportions, and eyes that make you want to melt, Lydia is quite the force to be reckoned with in the modeling industry, additionally expanding to a career in acting as well. The best part is, she doesn’t have to rely on her family’s last name or heritage to score a job; Lydia is a true talent whether or not they knew where she grew up.

Being the busy butterfly she is, she still enjoys taking time out to share what with the rest of the world what she is up to on her webpage, blog, facebook and twitter accounts. You get the sense that Lydia is who she is and exudes that confidence (NOT to be confused with arrogance) no matter what people have to say. When not busy traveling for work, Lydia is a regular attendee at New Yorks swankiest charity events (often thrown in the museums and buildings that belong to her very family), but best of all, she is the burst of bright light that walks into the room that unofficially lets the crowd know the party has begun. She had a knack for mingling and networking, and isn’t “too famous” to return emails or offer advice. Lydia, simply put, is a prettier, classier, and far more interesting and educated Paris Hilton. In fact, it makes me uncomfortable to even go on about comparing the two because the really are so very different. Like it or not (and really, what’s not to like!), Lydia Hearst-Shaw will be around for a very very long time.

Scallywag’s notes: If my memory serves me correct, Lydia happened to make it high up the food chain in our very coveted the top ten media whores of NYC ( I know you’re all wondering why you didn’t make it either) and if a current regard of the social barometer is any guide, Lydia is likely to retain her coveted poll position both in that list and this one.

By nature a fiery soul, a generous and of course slightly off the rail, just the way we sort of like them anyway- we look forward to Lydia continuing to tantalizing us, collectively inspiring us and keeping us busy with the occasional scandal or two. Right Lydia?


  • Tom Fords Baby

    What about Tracey Lisch-Lombardi, she has 3 facebook pages, 2 fanpages, 1 group a social media maven, generous, a total package over 40 and fabulous Down to EARTH, hard to find.
    Board member of Stop Abuse Campaign..fabu, beautiful inside and out. You should get to know her.

  • LOVE Reka!!!!!!!! as an amazingly talented gal and a friend! i’m so happy she made the cut. she sooooooooo deserves it!

  • Ledge

    Lydia Hearst-Shaw…? Generous…? Lol…you must be referring to someone else…unless of course you’re referring to her over abundance of generosity when it comes to gushing all about herself, her “busy busy” life having pictures of herself taken or all the “amazing and wonderful” things she’s off doing while she’s not being a bridesmaid in her best friend’s wedding, per say…what..? I said per say…doesn’t anyone speak Latin anymore…?

  • tiny litte ones

    what a frickin’ joke…….. Somaly Mam is not hot……and the rest are just rich girls…. talk about sellin’ out………. geesh.

  • LanceB

    So from a guy’s perspective… all of you ladies should be celebrating not hating on eachother. Congrats to all of you… the only thing I was confused about was why Jen Marden was not on this list.. It seems to me that the author defined the beauty of these women by there philosophic endevors and in my opinion know one is more true to that then Ms.Marden…

  • Frothy

    Wait where’s the accompanying pin up calendar?

  • What sweet words about not only me, but everyone…. I feel like nobody compared to the other girls on this list! Bravo to all! xxElle

  • words for turds 2

    I agree with the above. Everyone needs to leave positive comments not negative ones.

  • words for turds

    can anyone just be happy for those who made it? just because you didn’t, why frisk after those who did? and who cares about skin color? the whole point of the article was beauty coming from the inside AND the outside, so if you were to read alexa’s full article, you would see that women such as Tia Walker, Somaly Mam, Yaz Hernandez, Julia RR, ALL hail from places around the world and are of different ethnicity. And really, kelly8, its the heart and thought in the words that counts, not the typos. Kelly8 isn’t necessarily a grammatically correct name either, unless of course you are planning on casting for the New Star wars movie. Although I believe R2D2 already has a girlfriend. PEOPLE, JUST BE NICE!

  • Team Devorah

    She’s centered and sweet. Tinsley stole her idea for Social Heights (as well as her cast) and got it made into High Society. Why hasn’t anyone written an article about that?

  • Kelly8

    Who is this Alexa girl Lol… Can anyone say Spellcheck or Social climbing?? Get a life sweetie

  • Harry A. Hole

    this stinks, all of it….wipe it clean and start over….

  • To be quite correct Devorah was mentioned as a candidate for the top ten, but in fact she was not one of the actual ten nominees actually selected by me. I trust Devorah will survive the shock as will her fans (and enemies)- ooops- did I just say that? – The Editor.

  • Love her

    Team Devorah. She is intelligent and a hard worker. I look up to her.

  • Tinsley Witch-imer

    Tinsley Transexual made it on the top 10? She is fugs.

  • Of course

    Of course, the comment section becomes the devorah rose show. *yawn*

  • Trick or treat

    Devorah Rose made it on the list? But isn’t she a man?

  • Banging

    Dev is the hottest girl in NYC. Banging body.

  • Joseph Blow

    Wait, isn’t Devorah Rose a transexual? If so does not that technically disqualify her from being in your Top women category?

  • Exhausted hanger on

    Except for Somaly Mam why are all the women white socialites/models? Is this what counts for good reporting? Please have a look who’s also walking down the street besides skinny white girls.

  • Jazzy

    Yo- where’s Emma Snowdon Jones? Did she make it as number 11? That’s cruel man.

  • GhettoNi66er1

    Yo man, waazup wit all tha ho’s? Vodianova girl is bangin, slammin fo real, no joke. The rest is busted. I seen dat Chinese Mam’s show on da road, I give it an Oscar fo sure. B, she making all kinda money, gangsta. Where u be gettin u list from, Iowa?? Damn…
