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?
