The top 10 most beautiful women of NYC.


Number 6- Yaz Hernandez

Aside from my mother, Yaz Hernandez is one of the women I most look up to as a role-model of what a proper lady should act like. Fashion savvy, worldly, multilingual, and a passionate supporter of many of the greatest charities in Manhattan, Yaz is a permanent fixture on the social roster. Whether she is hosting the event or simply attending, Yaz is always the life of the party. She is always dressed impeccably and takes the time to greet every guest with hugs and laughter.

My first encounter with Yaz was a second-hand invitation to her bi-annual El Museo Del Barrio Gala. I didn’t even know Yaz at the time, but we she took the time out to chat with me for over twenty minutes over how much we admired one another’s dresses, when she could have been spending her time in the presence of Oscar De La Renta and other New York legends. I was so taken aback by her kindness, I simply had to know more about her. Yaz and I stayed in contact over the next few months and she has since allotted me the honor of attending many of her functions both as a contributor and as a guest.

She is a strong empowering woman, but her generosity towards people such as myself as well as her generosity towards the various charities she works with make her a true role-model. It is hard to find a woman who can dress in couture but can command the attention away from her dress and direct it towards her words in a room 1,000 onlookers. Yaz not only talks the talk, but she walks the talk.

Scallywag’s notes: This woman does indeed walk the talk, and for my mind is one of the classiest women currently in society and the arts and we should all be so gracious to her for so often enabling a multitude of causes- and inspiring us collectively.

Already slated to be featured in the new year (yes kids- Yaz has promised us a feature) all I can say this woman is one of the more charismatic soul I have been blessed to meet on the social circuit, and if truth be told I always melt when this sultry Latina woman walks (works) a room. A true bon vivant and beautiful class act- inside and out.

  • 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…
