The name Hearst immediately conjures up the words “media empire.” Amanda Hearst is the great granddaughter of the famous publishing industry magnate William Randolph Hearst. Related to Lydia Hearst-Shaw, Amanda is blessed with beauty and a healthy bank account and is now in her early 20s, forging her own path as a fashion model for the IMG agency. Amanda was recently signed as the face of Lilly Pulitzer. Not satisfied with being rich and good-looking, Amanda is currently studying art history at Fordham University in New York City. In a poll conducted by FHM magazine in early 2007, Amanda was voted the 14th most eligible bachelorette according to their criteria of wealth and looks. Some even call her the new “It Girl” of high society.
3. Georgina Bloomberg
Michael Bloomberg only just got his financial software company off the ground when he welcomed his first child, Georgina, into the world. Over two decades later, Bloomberg is worth $5.5 billion and holds office as the mayor of New York City. However, Georgina has shown no interest in politics or business. Instead she has become a champion equestrian rider, participating in tournaments across America and Europe and winning several major awards. Georgina is currently studying arts and sports management at New York University.
4. Lydia Hearst Shaw
Along with Amanda Hearst (also on this list), Lydia Hearst is one of the heiresses to the vast fortune of the Hearst media empire. The promise of future wealth beyond her wildest dreams hasn’t stopped this eager young lady from branching out on her own with a formidable modeling career. With her Twiggy-like looks and worldwide family recognition, Lydia is making a name for herself even if it does resemble the same name as a business that makes billions each year. She even teamed up with designer Anand Jon to create fashionable handbags and jeans.
5. Ivanka Trump
What do you get when a beautiful Czechoslovakian Olympic skier marries a rich real estate developer? Ivanka Trump, that’s what. Born in 1981, Ivanka has the best of both of her parents; the striking facial features and blond hair of her Eastern European mother, Ivana, and the deep, deep pockets of dear old dad and self-professed billionaire, Donald Trump. As a 16-year-old prep-school student, Ivanka only had her tuition paid for so she had to find other sources of income to keep her in the black. She became a model and has been on the cover of several magazines, including Seventeen, Elle, Glamour, and Stuff. Ivanka also strolled the catwalk for Versace, Marc Bouwer and Thierry Mugler, and appeared in ads for Tommy Hilfiger and Sassoon Jeans. Her modeling years eventually ended as Ivanka finished her schooling. She graduated magna cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science degree in economics. Her intelligence and true-to-form Trump work ethic have helped her attain a position as vice president of real estate development and acquisitions at none other than the Trump organization. Ivanka has even appeared in the boardroom of her father’s reality television show The Apprentice. One can only assume that she will continue to climb the ladder at Trump Tower and have both her position and responsibilities grow as the organization grows. That is as long as she doesn’t mess up and her dad doesn’t fire her, of course.
