Socialite Slapdown: The Final Four

The Observer‘s version of March Madness entered a new phase at midnight last night when votes were tabulated for the Final Four face-off in our Socialite Slapdown contest.

The contest—which gained a bit of heat last week when Page Six reported on socialites’ efforts to stack the votes in their favor—closes with four finalists: Publishing heiress, model and bag-designer Lydia Hearst faces off against socialite/style writer Derek Blasberg, and Lauren Davis, socialite and Vogue editor, faces off against Peter Davis, the mocialite-loving … style writer!

Conclusions? OK, the media totally stacked this thing. And! The mocialites are ascendant. And? Lydia Hearst.
