Lydia Hearst's NYFW Insta-Diary

How easy it is to jet-set and see the whole world! I'm off to NYFW with my Louis Vuitton luggage tow.

Plenty of legroom on my United flight to NYC! Kickin' back, waiting for my flight to land...

Who doesn't love diamonds?! They are a girl's best friend after all. The accessories on set today for Haute Living are to die for.

The on-set beautification process with my glam squad has begun...

Behind the scenes shooting with my fellow supermodel mentor on The Face, Anne V!

Time for a selfie mirror moment! And, that's a wrap on today!

Rise and shine....!!! It's literally the dawn of a new day.

Early morning call for Alice + Olivia shoot. Time to get G...L...A...M...O...R...O...U...S...!!!

Early morning call for Alice + Olivia shoot. Time to get G...L...A...M...O...R...O...U...S...!!!

Behind the scenes for Alice + Olivia. It's a new era of fashion... There are no rules.

Mid-day caffeine fix - Yes, that is a refrigerator filled with Coca Cola... This makes me happy.


Fashion week is officially in full swing! My NYFW essentials for any true supermodel and fashionista...

Hanging out at DreamDry with the sweetest girl, Jamie Chung. I adore her!

I can't help but go wild with accessories, I love them. Mixing up accessories adds interest to and completes every outfit.

Playing auntie and spending some quality time with my niece, Harper. 

It is important to take care of your body, eat healthy, and stay fit!

Stilettos... I look at them more as an attitude as opposed to a high-heeled shoe. As Marilyn Monroe once said: "Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world."

Time to head over to Lincoln Center for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

Ran into my good friend Lorenzo Martone at the show! He recently engineered a whole new way of cycling (Martone Cycling Co.) that is intended to suit any and every lifestyle - I love it!

And, that's the show! The Ruffian designers are some of the most talented and wonderful people in the world. They are true artists!

Changing up my look for the afternoon. Having a "selfie" moment with my best friend and makeup artist Jasen Kaplan. 

Sitting front row with my fellow fashionistas loving Christian Siriano's runway show. His application of design and aesthetics are unparalleled. 

More shots from the Christian Siriano runway show.

"To keep the body in good health is a duty... otherwise we shall not be able to keep our mind strong and clear." - Buddah

I'm a real bag lady... I love to have options and I can't resist buying clutches and purses!

I just found my new favorite Coconut Water.

It may be snowing in New York City, but I won't let the prevent me from going to see Brian Lichtenberg's fashion presentation! 

Marcus and I are a couple of "Ballin" "Homies".

I am a sucker for hibachi dinners - I cannot get enough Benihana!

I love being a mentor on The Face. I have taken my mentorship to heart and am so happy to be close to the girls from the show. #WhoWillBeTheFace #TeamNaomi #TeamAnne #TeamLydia 

Attending an early morning show with my friend Scott at Lincoln Center where we are going to see Mathieu Mirano's debut runway show.

I bumped into my good friend and mentor of The Face Australia, Nicole Trunfio. I love seeing old friends and having time to catch up - Gotta love NYFW!

A glimpse of the Alice + Olivia presentation that took place at the McKittrick Hotel's SleepNoMore. The perfect location for such an enchanting show!

I'm just having a moment with a wolf and a butterfly at the Alice + Olivia presentation. 

I'm up with the sunshine... Or maybe a little bit before.

Back in Lincoln Center for my last day at New York Fashion Week and on my way to the Badgley Mischka runway show.

Dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman but loose enough to show that you're a lady. What a perfect collection by Badgley Mischka.

I am so excited for my mom, her French Bulldog is the "Best Bitch" in town. Her dog won best of opposite in the frenchie division at Westminster.

It has been quite the week, I need a little disco nap...

Time for a little caffeine fix. Gotta get my Starbucks on.

Backstage at with Nigel Barker and Pamela Rolland. I absolutely love her designs and am thrilled that she is a part of The Face Season 2!

Pamela's dog front row at her show. So cute!

The Pamela Rolland collection was breathtakingly beautiful! I LOVE every piece!

My finally moments backstage at New York Fashion week getting silly with a Kid Robot.


Supermodel, actress, and girl-about-town Lydia Hearst knows a thing or two about fashion -- after all, she's starring as a model mentor alongside Anne V and Naomi Campbell on Season 2 of The Face, out this March. Naturally, there was no better person we could think of than Lydia to invite us along for an insider's look at her jam-packed New York Fashion Week.

Between an Alice + Olivia photoshoot, designer friends' shows at Lincoln Center, and some early morning yoga sessions, we're not entirely sure how Lydia manages to do it all, but somehow she did, and we've got it all documented -- Instagram style.
