According to the New York Post, Andres Santo Domingo belongs to one fo the most important families in New York. Unlike families like the Hiltons or the Trumps, the Sant oDomingo family is rarely in the news- yet they are just as (if not more) rich, influential, and classy as any family in New York.
Andres ‘ father was Julio Mario Santo Domingo and, as patriarch of the Santo Domingo family tree, he held stake in over 100 companies before his death in 2010. Andres has a brother, Alejandro Santo Domingo, who runs the family corporation these days. Both he and Andres are the sons of Julio’s second marriage with Beatrice Davila. Beatrice is still active in the fashion world and is usually seen in the front row at Paris fashion week.
Andres has extensive connections to other influential people through his family. His brother is dating publishing heiress Amanda Hearst, while his niece Tatiana Santo Domingo is engaged to Andrea Casiraghi, daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco.
However, Andres Santo Domingo’s marriage to Lauren Santo Domingo (nee Davis) is probably one of the things that truly makes the family one of the most influential in New York society. Lauren Santo Domingo is a Vogue contributing editor working for Anna Wintour and is good friends with both Tinsley Mortimor and Barbara Bush. Her marriage to Andres was deemed the first society wedding of the century and filled with influential people from New York and beyond.
Together, both Lauren and Andres Santo Domingo have chaired or organized a number of high-profile galas and charity events throughout New York and as a fashion icon Lauren is often in the public eye.
