The concept of the Renaissance man, a polymath, one versed in a vast number of disciplines in the arts and sciences, dates back to an age in which Michelangelo was busying himself with throwing coats of paint on some chapel ceiling or another in Rome. Laws and historical conditions over the centuries effectively limited the emergence the Renaissance woman until relatively recent history. Enter Lydia Hearst, the very woman Fault calls a “Renaissance Woman” in the pages of its latest issue. Whether modeling, mentoring on TV (#TeamLydia, anyone?!), or acting, Lydia is your woman and, truth be told, she enjoys all of the above. “I’m definitely devoting more time to acting but I hope to continue my career in fashion as well as keeping up with my blog.” And some blog it is, lovelydiahearst.com is a worth bookmarking and visiting on a daily basis. Self-described “weird, silly, serious, quiet, outgoing, wild, sweet, funny, kind, dramatic, sarcastic, creative, romantic,” Lydia embodies all of these traits, a veritable Renaissance woman.
